Who’s the best candidate to run against Trump in 2020?
Trump remains one of the most divisive presidents in US history, with the lowest average ‘highest approval’ rating and the smallest margin between approval and disapproval (according to the Gallup polls). This indicates a divided opinion in the United States and not very much change in favour of his presidency so far. Considering his involvement in destabilising trade wars, brutal migration policy-making and a hasty and unpopular Middle East withdrawal, it would arguably be a lot better internally and internationally for Trump to be beaten at re-election. Trumps presidency has also encouraged an interesting new wave of businessmen and entrepreneurial candidates to enter the race. With this in mind who is the best candidate to run for president at the next US election?

Tulsi Gabbard

Tulsi Gabbard is a member of the United States House of Representatives for Hawaii who announced her campaign to run for president on 11th January 2019. Gabbard is an Iraq War veteran that is running as a progressive candidate and is outspoken against US involvement in Iraq, Libya and Syria, having served in Iraq personally. She supports reproductive rights, universal healthcare, drug policy reform, LGBT rights, banking reform, education reform, environment policy reform and has backed a bill to increase minimum wage in the US. Gabbard seems to have earned a harsh response in the media following her opposition to efforts to remove Bashar al-Assad’s government from power in Syria, and an anti-LGBT stance she espoused before 2005, which she later apologised for. Despite this she remains a popular candidate and could become America’s first female and first Hindu president. rt.com/shows/watching-the-hawks/450666-tulsi-gabbard-kremlin-puppet

She is a proponent of massive structural reform of government in the United States, a staunch progressive she has spoken passionately in favour of a US public health care system, a wealth tax and environmental policy.
