As the people of the United States of America prepare to elect Donald Trump or Joe Biden as their president for the next four years, Legit.ng in this article takes a look at the social policy of Trump during his presidency.
Below are some social policies of the US president.
President Trump is a known advocate of capital punishment. He once took a full page in a newspaper to ask the government to bring back the death penalty.
Trump is known for his distrust of the election machinery of the United States. Even as the president of the greatest country on earth, he still laments that some people are planning to rig the coming presidential election against him.
The United States president has discovered a way to use religion to his own advantage. He has made many believers believe that he is on the throne only by divine mandate.
Trump is known for his dislike for illegal immigrants. No wonder, the American president initiated the much-criticised travel ban which many people are against.
The American president is a known advocate of medical mariju*na. He said he is "a hundred per cent in favor" because "I know people that have serious problems ... and ... it really, really does help them."
President Trump believes that marriage is for a man and a woman. However, he congratulated singer Elton John on his civil partnership to his same-s*x partner. He, however, continued to oppose same-s*x marriage and insisted that he would nominate a conservative judge that will help overturn the legalisation in America. However, he later went back on his words, saying he has no issue with it.
When it comes to race, Donald Trump has always backed law enforcement when it clashes with racial minorities. In fact, in April 2017, Trump was accused of being Islamophobic. The allegation was levelled against him when he blocked people from seven Muslim-majority countries from entering the United States.
The president has also criticized the Black Lives Matter movement.
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had reported that Trump intensified his salvos against Joe Biden's mental capacity after the Democratic presidential nominee called him "George."
