Opinion | Last Presidential Debate: Trump in Control, Biden Disoriented and Confused

After the chaotic and dizzying spectacle that characterized the first presidential debate, it was nice to see that the second debate allowed for substantive exchanges.

On the 22nd of October, we saw a much more civilized and procedural debate without still minimizing the clear polarization between the two opposing camps. Indeed, common ground is rare between presidential candidates, embodying two radically different and irreconcilable visions.

First of all, it should be noted that Donald Trump has not had a moment’s rest since leaving Walter Reed Hospital. Night after night, he stands before thousands and thousands of supporters with energy and stamina worthy of a 20-year-old in order to galvanize his troops and secure the swing states.

Moreover, he has hardened his line against the Biden family, which he now considers a criminal organization since the serious revelations of the New York Post. Joe Biden’s son Hunter Biden, a fallen drug addict with no work experience, was receiving huge sums of money from Ukraine, China and Russia, all while Joe Biden was Vice-President.

In addition, it should be remembered that Joe Biden has been in politics for more than 47 long years. During this typical long career as a politician, he has achieved no significant accomplishments except for a law in 1994, the Crime Bill, the enforcement of which hit the African-American community hard.

On the contrary, Donald Trump is an atypical candidate who attacks the system, i.e. the establishment, head-on. In less than four years, he achieved the most successful economy in U.S. history, while building the most powerful army in the world. Consequently, Donald Trump is absolutely right when he says that Joe Biden is a great talker but does not act. His eight years under Obama rhymes with a void legacy in terms of significant achievements. To that effect, Trump does not hesitate to taunt him.

Not only is Biden a great talker, but yesterday’s debate clearly demonstrated that he is an idealist who understands nothing about political reality. The United States of America is the leading world power; weakening the nation is not an option. Yet, in the name of vague and naive ideals, Biden would certainly be a vector of decline and decay. In economics, he advocates the abolition of fossil fuels, an overload of regulations and the implementation of inefficient green energies.

In immigration, he defends Catch and Release. He also intends to weaken borders and offer a path to citizenship for 11 million illegal immigrants. When Trump closed the borders to communist China and jihadist countries, Biden accused him of “xenophobia,” a classic example of political correctness.

Biden is a moribund career politician who has accomplished nothing of note in 47 years and who carries out collusion schemes in complicity with members of his family, including the notorious Hunter (where is Hunter?).

His candid ideals are unrealistic but also vectors of weakness. His incessant stammering and confusions are signs of decay and lack of energy. On the contrary, Donald Trump appears as a survivor that nothing can bring down, including the virus but also the big tech censors, the media and the establishment. Despite his outbursts and erratic temperament, the fact remains that under his leadership, the national economy is reaching unprecedented heights and the military forces are stronger than ever, all without spilling American blood in the sand.

The thesis of American decline takes on a whole new form with a civilization that is reborn and aspires to the perpetuation of its greatness.
