The following information was released by the Republican National Committee:
At Home And Abroad, President Trump Has Achieved Historic Accomplishments Including A Record Setting, Resurging Economy, Tax Cuts For Everyday Americans, A Judiciary Committed To The Rule Of Law, Peace Deals In The Middle East, And The Defeat Of ISIS And Elimination Of Terrorists Around The World
UNDER PRESIDENT Trump, THE GREAT AMERICAN COMEBACK IS SURGING AS THE U.S. HAS ADDED 11.4 MILLION JOBS IN JUST 5 MONTHS SINCE THE CORONAVIRUS DEVASTATED THE ECONOMY
U.S. GDP beat expectations in Q3, growing at a record setting annual rate of 33.1.%.
Yahoo Finance: U.S. economic activity surged at a record clip for the July through September period.
CNBC Headline: U.S. GDP booms at 33.1% rate in Q3, better than expected.
Prior to the pandemic, the largest-ever quarterly rise in GDP had been a 16.7% annualized increase in 1950, the Q3 rise was nearly twice that.
Personal consumption, which comprises about two-thirds of domestic economic activity, was the primary reason for rising a better than expected 40.7% on an annualized basis.
While consumption led the gain in third-quarter GDP, gains were still broad-based across the economy, as the areas hardest hit earlier on during the pandemic rebounded.
Strong gains in manufacturing have more than made up for pandemic-era losses.
Residential investment increased 2% after a 1.6% decline in Q2.
Nonresidential fixed investment also contributed positively to GDP as equipment spending by businesses improved.
Economic activity was strong in the real estate sector, and consumer and business executive surveys showed that confidence has remained high about the future despite the virus-related setbacks.
The U.S. economy is on the road to recovery, employers have added 11,417,000 jobs in just 5 months.
We have now recovered 52% of jobs lost due to the coronavirus crisis in just 5 months, it took the Obama/Biden Administration more than 2 years to recover 50% of the jobs lost in the great recession.
The unemployment rate has decreased 6.8% since April to 7.9%, roughly the same as it was before President Obama was reelected in 2012.
Stephen Moore on the latest jobs report: We've got a robust recovery underway that continues.
Consumer confidence rebounded in September by the largest amount in more than 17 years as Americans grew more upbeat about the outlook for the economy and job market.
Larger shares of Americans also expected more jobs and better business conditions in the coming months.
PRESIDENT TRUMPS TAX CUTS AND JOBS ACT HAVE LET MIDDLE-CLASS AMERICANS KEEP MORE OF THEIR HARD-EARNED MONEY

The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act saved the average American taxpayer $1,200 each year.
82% of middle-class Americans got a tax cut, and the lions share of the tax savings went to low and middle-income households:
In 2019, households making $20k-$30k saw the largest reduction in federal taxes, paying 13.5% less.
Households making $30k-$40k saw the second largest reduction, paying 11.4% less, followed by households making $40k-$50k, who paid 10% less.
By doubling the standard deduction, the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act made the tax filing process simpler for nearly 29 million households.
Nearly 90% of taxpayers now take the standard deduction, avoiding the complex process of itemizing their deductions.
This change will save Americans up to $5.4 billion in compliance costs each year as individuals spend fewer hours complying with the tax code.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act doubled the Child Tax Credit, meaning American families save an extra $1,000 per child.
The Child Tax Credit primarily benefits middle-class households earning between $50,000 and $100,000.
The 22 million households who utilize the child tax credit will save an additional $26.9 billion thanks to this change.
PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS RESHAPED THE FEDERAL COURTS, FAR OUTPACING PRESIDENT OBAMAS RATE OF APPOINTMENTS
President Trump has appointed three Supreme Court Justices including Justice Amy Coney Barrett.
Barrett was a smart, eminently qualified pick who the American Bar Association rated as well qualified to serve as a Supreme Court Justice.
Even Democrat Senator Chris Coons, a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, was forced to admit that Barrett is qualified to serve as a Supreme Court Justice.
In less than four years, Trump has named a total of 53 judges to appellate courts, compared to the 55 appellate judges Obama appointed during his entire presidency.
Vox: The average Trump appointee has far more impressive resume than any past presidents nominees.
THE TRUMP ADMINISTRATION HAS REJECTED FAILED OBAMA CLIMATE REGULATIONS THAT CRIPPLED THE NATIONS ENERGY ECONOMY AND HIT LOW-INCOME AMERICANS HARDEST
President Trump has protected communities from government overreach, replacing President Obamas Clean Power Plan with the Affordable Energy Rule, which gives states more authority to make their own plans regulating emission.
The Trump Administration lifted the ban on new coal leasing on federal land.
The Trump Administration has protected American farmers from regulatory burdens by repealing the Obama-era Water of The United States Rule.
Under the rule, the Obama/Biden Administration threatened a family with up to $37,500 a day in fines because they built an environmentally friendly pond for their horses.
In another case, a 77-year-old Navy veteran was imprisoned and ordered to pay $130,000 after the EPA declared several small ponds he created as federally protected navigable waters.
Deregulation has a real impact on everyday Americans and President Trump's actions to combat government overreach are expected to increase real incomes of Americans by $53 billion per year over the period of 2021- 2029.
Its the poorest Americans who are seeing the largest impact, the net effect of President Trump's deregulatory actions represent a nearly 15% savings for families with the lowest incomes.
Due to President Trump's regulatory relief in the shale industry, the global price of oil has dropped by 10%, saving the poorest quintile of Americans almost 7% of their household income.
PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS BALANCED ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION WITH ECONOMIC GROWTH, PRIORITIZING AMERICAN INNOVATION AND ENERGY INDEPENDENCE ALL WHILE REDUCING CARBON EMISSIONS
Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler said at the time, adding that the move complied with Trump 2017 executive order promoting energy independence and economic growth. https://t.co/KgFsi2jTsR

Instead of imposing job killing regulations, the Trump Administration has promoted technology that reduces carbon emissions while strengthening America's energy independence.
The Trump Administration has invested $11.5 million in 12 projects as part of phase 1 of the Advanced Research Projects Agency- Energys (ARPA-E) Flexible Carbon Capture And Storage Program (FLECCS).
The project will develop carbon capture storage processes that enable the next generation of flexible, low-cost, and low-carbon electricity systems.
The Trump Administration provided $118 million to support the Coal FIRST Initiative which will convert coal, biomass, and waste plastics to generate clean and affordable carbon-neutral electricity and hydrogen.
The Trump Administration announced more than $97 million in funding for 33 projects that will support technology and research to improve the performance and cost of biofuels, biopower, and bioproducts from waste resources.
The Trump Administration announced five projects would receive up to $28 million to promote the advancement of the next generation of geothermal energy technologies.
In 2019, U.S. total annual energy exports exceeded total annual energy imports for the first time in 67 years, and the United States became a net total energy exporter.
Last year, total U.S. energy production increased by 5.7 percent in 2019 while U.S. energy demand decreased by 0.9 percent.
In 2019, the U.S. saw a record 2.9% decline in carbon emissions, U.S. emissions are now down almost 1 gigatonne from their peak in the year 2000, the largest absolute decline by any country over that period.
PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS TAKEN ACTION TO LOWER DRUG PRESCRIPTION COSTS AND AS A RESULT, IN 2018, AMERICANS SAW THE LARGEST PRICE DECREASE IN MORE THAN 50 YEARS
Since elected, President Trump has made lowering drug costs a priority as Americans depend on the affordability and accessibility to life-saving medications.
In 2018, prescription drugs saw their largest price decrease in over half a century.
Basic premiums for Medicare Part D prescription drug plans fell by 13.5% since 2017; the lower cost has saved beneficiaries $1.9 billion in premium costs.
The Trump Administration also announced a Part D Savings Model that will provide Medicare patients options to access a broad set of insulins at a maximum $35 copay per month.
Within the first 19 months, the Trump Administration approved generic drugs at historic rates, which saved patients $26 billion.
President Trump has signed legislation ending “gag clauses” that prevented pharmacists from informing patients about the lowest prices for medications that Americans depend on.
In an effort to continue to drive down the costs of prescription drugs for Americans, President Trump signed four Executive Orders this summer.
The first order directs federal health centers to pass along massive discounts on insulin and epinephrine received from drug companies to low-income Americans.
The second order will allow States, pharmacies, and wholesalers to participate in safe importation of certain drugs, allowing the re-importation of insulin products made in the U.S., and create a pathway for widespread use of personal importation waivers at authorized pharmacies.
The third order prohibits secret deals between drug manufacturers and pharmacy benefit manager middlemen and ensures patients are directly benefiting from available discounts at the pharmacy.
The final order ensures that the U.S. pays the lowest price available in economically comparable countries for Medicare Part B prescription drugs.
PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS NEGOTIATED HISTORIC PEACE AGREEMENTS ACROSS THE MIDDLE EAST INCLUDING SIGNING A PEACE AGREEMENT IN AFGHANISTAN, AND NEGOTIATING PEACE AGREEMENTS BETWEEN ISRAEL AND THE UAE, BAHRAIN, AND SUDAN

— Department of State (@StateDept) October 28, 2020
On October 23, 2020, the Trump Administration announced the normalization of ties between the Republic of Sudan and the state of Israel.
CNN's Oren Liebermann: The Israel and Sudan deal is a significant foreign policy accomplishment by the White House.
CNN's Nic Robertson on Israel and Sudan agreeing to normalize relations: President Trump has been able to move the ball forward towards peace.
CNN's Nic Robertson: President Donald Trump has succeeded in the Middle East where other presidents have failed.
The Washington Times' Charles Hurt: President Donald Trump reinvents the wheel with Middle East peace plans.
Fox News Harris Faulkner: Ground moving move today with Israel and Sudan agreeing to normalize relations.
Fox News reports: The circle of peace grows with Israel and Sudan agreeing to normalize relations, the third Arab state in a matter of months to do so.
On September 11, 2020, the Trump Administration announced that Bahrain joined the United Arab Emirates in striking a deal to normalize relations with Israel.
The agreement marked “the second time in a month” that an Arab Gulf nation announced new ties with the Jewish state, “further reshaping alliances in the Middle East .”
CNN'S Oren Liebermann: “26 years since the last peace agreement between Israel and an Arab nation…now two within a month.”
The deal with Bahrain made it the fourth Arab country, after Egypt, Jordan, and the UAE, to have full diplomatic ties with Israel.
Leaders from Israel and Bahrain praised President Trump for “his dedication to peace in the region, his focus on shared challenges, and the pragmatic and unique approach he has taken to bringing their nations together.”
The Associated Press: “The agreement represents another diplomatic win” for President Trump.
The New York Times: President Trump made history on Friday when he announced the Persian Gulf kingdom of Bahrain would establish full diplomatic relations with Israel.
“The announcement that Bahrain would establish full diplomatic relations with Israel leaves open the possibility that more Arab states will follow.”
The Washington Post's David Ignatius: “Bahrain's diplomatic agreement with Israel is a building block toward Middle East stability.”
On August 13, 2020, the Trump Administration announced that the UAE and Israel had agreed to the full normalization of relations between the two countries in a “historic deal.”
Axios : The deal was a “major breakthrough” between “Israel and a major Arab power.”
The New York Times: “Israel and United Arab Emirates strike a major diplomatic agreement.”
“If fulfilled, the agreement would make the UAE the third Arab country to establish normal diplomatic relations with Israel after Egypt, which signed a landmark peace agreement in 1979, and Jordan, which signed a treaty in 1994.”
“It could reorder the long stalemate in the region between Israel and its neighbors, potentially leading other Arab nations to follow suit while taking prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu's explosive annexation plan off the table at least for the moment.”
On February 2, 2020, the Trump Administration signed a preliminary peace agreement with the Taliban that sets the stage to end America's longest war.
Under the agreement, the U.S. will withdraw nearly 5,000 troops from the country in 135 days in exchange for a Taliban agreement to not allow Afghanistan to be used for transnational terrorism.
Time Magazine reported that other components of the agreement included an agreement that U.S. counterterrorism forces stay in the country, permissions for the CIA to operate in Taliban-held areas and details of how the Talibans promises to reduce violence will be monitored and verified.
The deal has been called the best chance to end this conflict, a decisive move towards peace, and the best path for the United States.
The war in Afghanistan is the longest in U.S. history, a conflict that has killed more than 3,500 U.S. and NATO troops and cost U.S. taxpayers nearly 900 billion dollars.
President Trump has taken historic steps to strengthen the United States-Israel alliance:
President Trump fulfilled his promise to recognize Jerusalem as the capital of Israel and has moved the U.S. embassy to the city.
President Trump withdrew the United States from the United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) due to its anti-Israel bias.
Since 2006, the HRC had passed more than 65 resolutions condemning Israel for human rights violations compared to just 11 resolutions condemning North Korea.
PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS KEPT HIS PROMISE TO STAND UP TO ROGUE REGIMES LIKE RUSSIA, IRAN, VENEZUELA AND CUBA, AND KEPT HIS PROMISE TO ELIMINATE THE TERRORIST GROUP ISIS
Under President Trumps leadership, ISIS has been defeated and its notorious leader and founder Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi has been eliminated:
On October 27, 2019, President Trump announced the United States had successfully eliminated Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi, the notorious terrorist and rapist who led the terrorist group the Islamic State (ISIS) which had subjugated large portions of Iraq and Syria.
On March 23, 2019, President Trump announced the United States and its partners had officially liberated all ISIS-controlled territory.
President Trump was widely praised by military officials for his ISIS strategy:
Lt. General Stephen Townsend said I don't know of a commander that didn't appreciate President Trump's decentralized military decision-making strategy in the fight against ISIS.
Brigadier General Andrew Croft: I couldn't ask for a better leadership team to work for, to enable the military to do what it does best.
Foreign Policy: The days of White House micromanagement of the military are over.
President Trump has stood up to Russia and bolstered allies in the wake of Russian provocations and election interference:
The Trump Administration has implemented a wide array of sanctions and other punitive actions against Russia for their destabilizing actions and provocations against the U.S. and its allies.
President Trump has bolstered NATO spending, and increased the U.S. contribution to the European Deterrence initiative in the face of Russian provocations.
The U.S. has increased troops and its military capability in Eastern Europe and dramatically increased training and drills with its NATO partners.
President Trump has pressured allies to oppose Vladimir Putins number one geo-economic project, the Nord Stream 2 Pipeline.
President Trump allowed the sale of lethal weapons to Ukraine to address the country's vulnerability to Russian-backed separatists in its eastern provinces.
President Trump has put the pressure on Iran, including withdrawing from the flawed Iranian Nuclear Deal, applying stringent sanctions to the country, and rolling back the countrys destabilizing activities across the Middle East including eliminating Iranian General Qassem Soleimani:
On January 2, 2020, the Pentagon announced Thursday that the U.S. killed Gen. Qassem Soleimani, the head of Iran's elite Quds Force, at the direction of President Donald Trump.
Top Iraqi paramilitary commander Abu Mahdi al-Mohandes was killed alongside Gen. Soleimani.
Soleimani was designated as a terrorist by the Obama Administration in 2011, and has been sanctioned many times by the Department of the Treasury.
CNN National Security Analyst Michael Weiss: Soleimani ran a proxy war that killed “at least” 603 American soldiers in Iraq.
Former FBI agent and MSNBC contributor Clint Watts: “Soleimani led an Iran- US proxy war in Iraq for the last decade.”
CNN's Jim Sciutto: Hundreds of American families watched news of Soleimani's killing particularly closely, he engineered attacks that “that killed hundreds of US service-members and wounded thousands more.”
On May 8, 2018, President Trump fulfilled his campaign promise by withdrawing from the dangerous Iran Nuclear deal.
President Trump has applied stringent sanctions to the country in response to its provocations across the Middle East.
President Trump has stood up against Venezuelan dictator Nicholas Maduro and thrown his support behind Venezuela's Democratically elected interim President Juan Guaido:
Since taking office, President Trump has issued five executive orders that hinder the Maduro regimes ability to sustain its control over the country's economy and state-owned assets.
As of June 2020, the Trump Administration has sanctioned at least 144 Venezuelan individuals or Venezuela-connected individuals, and the State Department has revoked more than 700 visas, including 107 of former diplomatic personnel.
Since 2017, the U.S. has made over 300 Venezuelan related sanctions designations.
Under an executive order relating to human rights and anti-democratic actions, the Trump Administration has sanctioned 91 Venezuelan officials.
The U.S. has imposed a travel ban on members of Venezuela's Maduro-controlled Constituent Assembly.
The Trump Administration has also imposed sanctions on Venezuela's state oil company (Petrleos de Venezuela, S.A., or PdVSA), government, and central bank.
After outreach by the Trump Administration, the Bank of England blocked the Maduro regimes attempted withdrawal of $1.2 billion worth of gold.
On January 23, 2019, President Trump recognized Venezuelan National Assembly President, Juan Guaid, as the Interim President of Venezuela.
The U.S. has given Guaid control of Venezuelas assets and property in U.S.-based bank accounts.
Following President Trumps lead, at least 57 other countries have affirmed their support for Guaid as the rightful President of Venezuela.
In a demonstration of his commitment to Democracy in Venezuela, President Trump hosted Guaid for his 3rd State of the Union Address.
— Sara A. Carter (@SaraCarterDC) February 5, 2020
The Trump Administrations Venezuela's policy and, in particular, its decision to recognize Juan Guaid as the legitimate President of Venezuela has been cheered by Democrats in Florida.
In January 2019, thousands of Venezuelans gathered in a park outside Miami to voice their support for President Trump's decision to recognize Juan Guaid as Venezuela's interim President.
Politico: To Venezuelan exiles in Florida, the national Democrats criticizing Trump sound as if they're echoing Maduro.
NBC news op-ed: Trump Venezuela's policy isn't a case of right versus left. It's a case of right versus wrong.
Los Angeles Times op-ed: Trump is getting it right on Venezuela. In fact, he needs to double down.
Politico op-ed: Trump is right about Venezuela.
The Trump administration has rolled back President Obama's disastrous rapprochement with Cuba, which only benefited the country's dictatorship instead of its people.
At the direction of President Trump, the Department of Transportation has suspended commercial flights to Cuba beginning December 10, 2020.
PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS STOOD UP TO CHINA ON TRADE, INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY THEFT, HUMAN RIGHTS ABUSES, AND DESTABILIZING ACTIVITIES IN THE SOUTH CHINA SEA
On the campaign trail, Republican Presidential Candidate Donald Trump promised to protect American workers and stand up to trade cheating anywhere and everywhere.
As a candidate, President Trump promised to stand up to Chinas illegal activities by applying tariffs and bringing trade cases against China for its theft of intellectual property and illegal product dumping.
Candidate Trump also promised to stand up to Chinas aggression in the South China Sea.
President-elect Trump emphasized the United States close political, economic, and security ties to Taiwan.

Following President Trump's pressure on China, the two countries signed a phase one trade agreement on January 15, 2020.
The agreement includes stronger legal protections for American goods.
The deal also includes commitments by China to eliminate pressure for foreign companies to transfer technology, ending its currency devaluation, improve access to its financial services market, and refrain from supporting outbound investment aimed at acquiring foreign technology.
In the deal, China committed to purchasing at least $200 billion American products and services and increase its purchases of U.S. agricultural products.
President Trump has applied stringent sanctions on China due to its unfair trade practices, intellectual property theft, and human rights abuses:
Since September 2019, the Commerce Department and State Department have imposed export restrictions on 21 Chinese government entities and 16 Chinese companies complicit in the abuses in Xinjiang.
The State Department has also imposed visa restrictions on Chinese communist party officials deemed responsible for the abuse of Uighurs.
In October 2019, the Trump Administration imposed visa restrictions and import controls on organizations in Xinjiang, the location of China's human rights abuses against its Uighur Muslim minority population.
On July 1, 2020, President Trump issued an advisory to U.S. businesses against contributing to Chinas human rights abuses through their operations in Xinjiang warning these businesses will face reputational, economic and legal risks by associating with entities that engage in human rights abuses.
On June 17, 2020, President Trump signed a bill pressuring China over its human rights abuses in Xinjiang to its Uighur population.
On July 9, 2020, President Trump imposed sanctions on Chinese officials over the mass detention of Muslims.
The targets of the sanctions included a member of Chinas 25-member ruling Politburo, Chen Quanguo, former deputy press secretary of Xinjiang region, Zhu Hailun, and Director of the Xinjiang Public Security Bureau, Wang Mingshan.
The Trump Administration champions a free and open Indo-Pacific region and is standing up to Beijing's unlawful claims to resources in the sea.

WITH THE USMCA TRADE DEAL, PRESIDENT TRUMP FULFILLED HIS PROMISE TO RENEGOTIATE THE DISASTROUS NAFTA TRADE AGREEMENT AND ENACT FREER AND FAIRER TRADE FOR ALL AMERICANS
Joe Biden’s support of NAFTA killed 700,000 American jobs and gutted 60,000 American factories.
Now, when confronted over his support of the disastrous NAFTA trade deal, Biden admits President Trump’s USMCA trade deal “is better than NAFTA.”pic.twitter.com/I3bJzSyjCe
— GOP (@GOP) September 12, 2020
President Trumps USMCA trade deal has the potential to add 588,000 jobs and grow U.S. GDP by $235 billion.
The USMCA trade deal comes into force after President Trump promised to renegotiate the disastrous NAFTA trade deal during the 2016 campaign.
The USMCA trade deal has been widely lauded as a victory and clear win for the Trump Administration.
More than 600 coalitions and associations have endorsed the USMCA agreement and joined the USMCA Coalition which worked to urge Congress to support the deal.
USMCA is projected to help major American industries:
USMCA has been projected to result in an increase of 28,000 jobs and $683 million in annual investment for the automotive industry and includes key provisions to strengthen U.S. manufacturing.
USMCA is expected to increase U.S. agricultural and food exports by $2.2 billion.
USMCA is expected to add $226.8 million in total dairy output including $314.5 million of additional dairy exports above baseline.
U.S. poultry meat exports are expected to increase by nearly 50% to Canada by year six of the agreement.
The USMCA is expected to increase the value of U.S. E-commerce exports by $332 million.
USMCA will help small and medium-sized businesses by cutting tape and reducing costs for cross border transactions.
MEANWHILE, JOE BIDENS TAX PLAN UNDOUBTEDLY WILL HURT THE ECONOMY, AMERICAN TAXPAYERS, AND KILL AMERICAN JOBS
Joe Biden's tax plan would hike taxes on job creators, raise the corporate tax rate, hike capital gains tax and implement a 12.4% payroll tax on income earned above $400,000.
According to one analysis, U.S. GDP would shrink 1.51% and more than 500,000 Americans would lose their jobs.
The plan would reduce after-tax incomes by around 2.6% across all income groups over the long run, and low and middle-income earners would see a decrease.
Joe Biden has said the first thing he will do in office is repeal the GOP tax cuts; this move would increase taxes on 82% of middle-class Americans.
Americans would see an average tax increase of $1,200 if Biden repealed the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
In early 2018, the IRS adjusted withholding tables to reflect changes in the GOP tax cuts, as a result, 90% of American workers saw more money in their paychecks.
By repealing the tax cuts, Joe Biden would slash paychecks by $100 a month, according to HandR Block who reported that biweekly paychecks went up an average of $50 thanks to the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act.
The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act doubled the Child Tax Credit; by repealing it, Biden would raise taxes on more 22 million working families, earning primarily between $50,000 and $100,000, by more than $26 billion.
The tax cuts also expanded the refundable portion of the Child Tax Credit; repealing this would take money out of the pockets of 18.3 million primarily low-income houses.
Biden would reverse a 20% tax deduction for small businesses from which more than two-thirds of small business owners said they benefitted.
Joe Biden has backed Alexandria Ocasio Cortez's radical Green New Deal but refuses to acknowledge its massive price tag, only promising to fund a $1.7 trillion investment by hiking taxes on corporations.
The Green New Deal will cost $93 trillion, according to a study co-authored by Douglas Holtz-Eakin, former director of the Congressional Budget Office.
Even if Biden taxed 100% of net income from the nation's 5.9 million corporations, he would only generate less than a quarter of the funds needed to pay for the Green New Deal.
Bidens $2.25 trillion health care plan represents an average cost of nearly $16,000 for each of the 141 million American households that paid taxes in 2017.
That cost does not include the cost of lowering the age of Medicare eligibility to 60, which Biden says he would pay for with regular tax revenue rather than the shrinking Medicare trust fund.
JOE BIDEN HAS OPENLY SUPPORTED BANNING FRACKING, A MOVE WHICH WOULD DEVASTATE THE UNITED STATES ENERGY INDUSTRY
As a candidate, Joe Biden has flip-flopped several times on whether he would ban fracking.
Despite the mainstream media running interference for Biden, he has said, on numerous occasions, he would ban fracking.
And, his Vice President pick Kamala Harris has said she wants to ban fracking everywhere, which would decimate state economies across the country.
As a presidential candidate, Harris said that there's no question I'm in favor of banning fracking.
A ban on fracking would devastate the United States, as it would lead to the loss of 19 million jobs between 2021-2025 while reducing the U.S. GDP by $7.1 trillion over the same period.
BIDEN HAS DISASTROUSLY LOW SUPPORT AMONG LAW ENFORCEMENT AND SUPPORTS RADICAL POLICIES LIKE DEFUNDING THE POLICE WHICH WILL INCREASE INSECURITY FOR AMERICANS ACROSS THE COUNTRY
[WATCH] Biden Stammers and Struggles, Unable to Name Just One Law Enforcement Group that Supports Him President Trump hit Biden with the fact that his support from law enforcement is quite low.Biden looks down defeated and struggles to give an answer. https://t.co/Fa0Zeh1Ncx
— 🍀underdog13🍀❌ (@heretosaveday07) September 30, 2020
During the first presidential debate, President Donald Trump pressed Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden to name any law enforcement groups that he is backed by, which Biden did not answer.
During an NBC Town Hall, Biden admitted that he no longer has the support of law enforcement.
A wife of a police officer asked Biden what he would do to ensure her husband's safety in the wake of the troubling defund the police movement, to which he avoided answering the question and said he has had the support of law enforcement up until this year.
Biden has called those participating in the violent protests that have broken across the United States peaceful protestors and has faced criticism for praising protestors while staying silent on the shooting of David Dorn.
On July 8, 2020, Biden said funding should absolutely be redirected from police departments.
In early June 2020, when asked about Los Angeles's efforts to defund the police, Biden said such funding decisions should be made on a local level.

Biden's plan would funnel millions of Americans away from private insurance and into his government-run health care system.
90% of the 40.7 million projected enrollees would switch from private insurance plans.
The Partnership for Americas Health Care Future said Biden's proposal would undermine the progress our nation has made and ultimately lead our nation down the path of a one-size-fits-all health care system run by Washington.
