Virtual Debates: 2020 Presidential Candidate

Joe Biden

I'm running to lead this country because I think it's important to restore the soul of this nation. This president has ripped it out. He is the only president who has equated racist and white supremacist with ordinary and decent people. He is the only president who has actively engaged and embraced dictators and thumbed their nose at out allies. And secondly, I'm running for president because I think we have to restore the backbone of America, the poor and hard-working middle-class people. You can't do that without restoring the dignity they once had. And the last thing, we've got to unite the United States of America as much as anybody says we can't. If we do, there is not a single thing the American people can't do. This is the United States of America. We can do anything if we are together. Together. God Bless you All. And God protect our troops.

Economic Stimulus

The American middle class built this country. Yet today, CEOs and Wall Street are putting profits over workers, plain and simple. It’s wrong. There used to be a basic bargain in this country that when you work hard, you were able to share in the prosperity your work helped create. It’s time to restore the dignity of work and give workers back the power to earn what they’re worth.

Crime

I beat the NRA before and we need to do it again. And by the way, use technology so that you cannot fire a gun unless it has your biometric prints on it. And that means no problem in terms of the second amendment and you have to pass the background checks that I put into law as a consequence of the Brady agreement.

I call it ARPA-H to fund research and take all the technology we have and focus on solving problems that are within our reach like the Biden Cancer Initiative and the moonshot.

Education

build an education system that starts investing in our children at birth and helps every student get some education beyond a high school diploma, whether a certification, associate’s degree, or bachelor’s degree. Systemic racism is persistent across our institutions today – including in our schools – and must be addressed.

Environment

We have to restore what Barack and I did in terms of fuel economy as well as dealing with coal fired plants. We can double off-shore wind energy by 2030. $400 billion into clean energy research and innovation. We also have to hold polluters immediately accountable.

Foreign Policy

First and foremost, we must enforce existing trade laws and invest in the competitiveness of our workers and communities here at home, so that they complete on a level playing field. Then, we need to write the rules of the road for international trade through a modern, inclusive process—rules that protect our workers, safeguard the environment, uphold labor standards and middle-class wages, foster innovation, and take on big global challenges like corporate concentration, corruption, and climate change.
