Indeed, Obama was not better in the first 2 points.
What Obama didn't do though is got 9million Americans of healthcare and give tax cuts to the top 10%.
You see, I thought it would be worse under Trump I'm not gonna lie, What he did with the Iranian General was very very questionable but the Syria war from Obama was as well.
But the points are:
- The amount of people in America who are uninsured or under insured are dramatically high, why not adopt any european system with a fully single payer system like in Denmark (proposed by Sanders for example) or at least a program which makes an insurance for all while keeping the private insurances like here in Germany.
- The richest country in the world has no free or affordable advanced education which would make the myth of the American dream so much easier. We have seen in many European countries the benefits of free advanced education, how many people In the US are suffering under student debt or how many didn't even attend an university because of it is ridicolous.
I am really happy that I could study here in Germany without the massive risk of debt.
- Many people are living in poverty in the US, while a minimum wage increase is not the only solution, it is a pretty good one, it has worked quite well in other countries, at least there is some base to live on, and not 2 jobs, working 16 hours a day. This has to be done in order to fight the massive inequality that is arguably present in the US. A country where 70% of people have no personal savings and the top 0.1% owns more than the bottom 80%.
-Like it or not, the climate change is a thing, it has to be fought for our children and the future of them. It is undeniable that the probability of a man made climate change is close to 100%, something has to be done. And creating jobs in renewable energy, switching cars from fossil fuel to electricity (or hydrogen or whatever emission free) and all of what needs to be done is not the end of the world.
Thats why the US needs someone else as President, not a corporate Democrat like Hillary Clinton or Joe Biden, but a progressive like Bernie Sanders. For me it is not so much about what Trump is doing but about what he is not doing.
