BIDEN v. TRUMP: Where They Stand
climate change BIDEN: Committed to cut total greenhouse gas emissions by at least 50% by 2030, passed the largest piece of climate legislation in U.S. history (the Inflation Reduction Act), rejoined the Paris Climate Agreement; and established the first-ever National Climate Task Force; invested $50 Billion in climate resilience. TRUMP: Scrubbed all mention of climate change/damage or emergency from government sites; forbade it even to be mentioned in reports or research; permitted the government to do no planning for climate change.
gun safety BIDEN: Bipartisan Safer Communities Act helps remove firearms from dangerous individuals, narrows the "boyfriend loophole" to keep guns out of the hands of convicted dating partners, and expands mental health services in schools and supports school safety. TRUMP: “Bringing more government regulation into the situation has accomplished very little. The main ‘benefit’ has been to make it difficult for a law-abiding American to buy a gun.”
reproductive freedom BIDEN: Will veto any National Abortion Ban passed by Congress; supporting Tammy Baldwin’s fight to restore reproductive rights with the Women's Health Protection Act. TRUMP: privately supports a national abortion ban at 16 weeks; canceled contraception funding in the Affordable Care Act (aka Obamacare).
foreign policy BIDEN: United our allies and national security interests abroad; recognizes the danger of an unfettered Russia; supported Israel after October 7th but has chastising Israel for Settlement expansion. TRUMP: Wants to discontinue involvement with NATO and applauds Russia at every opportunity; moved the US embassy to Jerusalem; encouraged West Bank settlement construction.
