My belief is that federal government subsidies on high-speed rail would benefit the United States greater than the continual subsidy of the current highway system. The first round is acceptance, the second is stating your argument, third round attempt to dispute claims made by the opponent in second round. I lowered the max number of characters to keep arguments concise. I look forward to a good debate, good luck....

Donald Trump

Why did they elect him? The election is over. It's time to put the rhetoric aside and sift through what we know: Donald Trump won the election by a commanding margin. His victory is as legitimate as any previous presidents. The people of the United States elected him. They chose him. And the electorate is always right. Trump is a man with many, many serious flaws.
