Reader’s View: VP debate left out important info | Duluth News Tribune


- Advertisment -

During the Oct. 7 vice presidential debate, Sen. Kamala Harris omitted information that could have benefited her running mate. One is that the U.S. was not the sole country in the Iranian nuclear deal. It included the U.S., UK, Russia, France, China, Germany, and members of the EU. The multibillion-dollar figure the current administration likens to a bribe to Iran was actually Iran’s own money frozen by world banks, unless they kept following the rules.

Harris also should have made it clear that many Democrats don’t want to end police protections and that justice will be served when “bad-apple” cops are brought to justice. Not all police, only those who abuse their power. Democrats also do not approve of Antifa or those who burn and loot like common criminals.

Some Democratic factions proposed that to counter Trump’s open attempts to nominate conservatives into influential court positions. Biden has correctly stated that, “Whatever position I take on that, that will become the issue,” which then would eclipse more substantive debates.
