Trump vs. Biden 2024: The Unexpected Winner in a Game of Political Chess

By Isaiah McCall

As the 2024 election gears up, we're looking at a rematch between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump.

Current polls indicate a tight race, with Biden holding a slight lead but Trump showing strength in crucial states like Georgia. It's anyone's game at this point, but here's why we're leaning towards Trump.

Biden's Economic Missteps

Biden's tenure has been marked by economic challenges. While some could argue these were inherited or exacerbated by external factors, the fact remains that many Americans are feeling the pinch. From skyrocketing inflation to supply chain disruptions, Biden's economic policies have left much to be desired.

A Question of Coherence

Public speaking hasn't been Biden's strong suit. His frequent gaffes and apparent lack of coherence have raised eyebrows, leading to questions about his fitness for office. In contrast, Trump, while polarizing, is undeniably a powerful speaker capable of rallying his base.

Foreign Policy Failures

Biden's foreign policy track record, particularly regarding Israel and Ukraine, has been questionable. His handling of the Israel-Palestine conflict and the Ukraine-Russia standoff has drawn criticism for its perceived lack of assertiveness and strategic foresight.

Trump's Shortcomings

That said, Trump is far from the perfect candidate. His promise to "drain the swamp" largely went unfulfilled, and his knack for picking staff members who later turned against him (think Michael Cohen and Omarosa Manigault Newman) raises concerns about his judgment.

Moreover, Trump's leadership style often leans towards the autocratic, which has sparked fears of him being a dictator. However, it's crucial to remember that the U.S. political system has checks and balances designed to prevent such a scenario.

The Silver Lining

Regardless of who wins, history suggests that the election year will bring an economic stimulus. This is often due to increased government spending and positive investor sentiment in anticipation of potential policy changes.

The Bottom Line

In conclusion, while both candidates have their flaws, we're leaning towards Trump for the win. Despite his shortcomings, Trump appears to be capitalizing on Biden's weaknesses and riding a wave of discontent with the status quo.

But let's not forget: this is politics, where anything can happen. As always, it's important to stay informed, scrutinize the candidates, and most importantly, cast your vote when the time comes.
