This debate will be on whether or not Donald Trump is well-suited to be our next commander-in-chief. This is not a debate on who might be better than Trump, so please don't suggest another candidate. I am on the pro side, and will be debating the person on the con side.

I accept your challenge. Since the burden of proof is on you to prove why he is best suited and why is policies are good, it lies on me only to refute your claims. And actually you saying that it is not a debate on the person who is better than Trump goes against your own debate, because you are trying to prove why Donald Trump is the BEST option for president and so for you to effectively prove this you have to prove that he is BETTER than any other candidate, or else you fail to prove your point. I will start my arguments in round 2.

Nope. Big government means that we have federal laws and social programs, you are conflating communism with social democracy, which shows you do not understand basic government types. And more taxes in Sanders case pays for healthcare, college, vacation time, higher wages, social security, etc. So taxes are supposed to do things, right now taxes are used to give fantastic corporate subsidies and launch fantastic drone strikes on dozens of random countries that miss their target 90% of the time, and regime change in dozens of different countries, wow we really do use tax money well. Why do you think the healthcare here is garbage, and there we have a student loan debt crisis, and veterans from the military are forced to live in poverty.
