In the fifth presidential primary debate, Joe Biden noted that Democrats need to do two things to secure the party’s future. One being, liberals need to win over the south. First, the party’s winning presidential candidate needs to defeat President Trump in the 2020 election. And second, it needs to turn some red states blue […]
As Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders continued battling for the liberal party’s nomination for the 2020 election, both candidates promised to change how Americans are taxed.
