    Trumps debate strategy, call the other candidates names and speak about himself, never actually covers any thing that concerns the public. The poorly educated love his debate style.

    Trump doesn’t think he can lose so, why waste his time …. Showing himself up as the cretin he is! He’s going down! All his NY LLC licences have been cancelled so he must know he’s off the agenda!

    Not at all. Trump is stronger than ever. After near 4 years of disastrous Biden policies…. Not sure ANYONE can fix the mess this administration had done. The saga continues. How much worse does it have to get before you get that “Ah Hah!” moment.

    trump is afraid to debate, because he really doesn’t want anyone to know just how stupid he is for real. But the only thing he doesn’t know is that cat is out of the bag. People know his elevator doesn’t go to the top floor.

    Sure, he's afraid. But the sad part is that he doesn't have to be. Debate or not, his base isn't leaving his side fast enough.

    Maybe hes afraid that since hes debated Jeb Bush and Obama that Abraham Lincoln or George Washington will show up to debate him 😂😂😂

    I think he is wise to skip debates if all the moderator is going to do is make the indictments the center of it. He definitely needs to debate Biden though. If the moderator tries to make the indictments the center of the debate I would simply respond to one question only and then when they try to bring it up again, I would tell them that I will only be answering questions about what I am going to do for this country if I am elected. That is the way a debate should be. The polls reflect that the American people are not buying this indictment nonsense. It is time to move on.

    Passed by the Senate on June 8, 1866, and ratified two years later, on July 9, 1868, the Fourteenth Amendment granted citizenship to all persons "born or naturalized in the United States," including formerly enslaved people, and provided all citizens with “equal protection under the laws,” extending the provisions of the Bill of Rights to the states. The amendment authorized the government to punish states that abridged citizens’ right to vote by proportionally reducing their representation in Congress. It banned those who “engaged in insurrection” against the United States from holding any civil, military, or elected office without the approval of two-thirds of the House and Senate. The amendment prohibited former Confederate states from repaying war debts and compensating former slave owners for the emancipation of their enslaved people. Finally, it granted Congress the power to enforce this amendment, a provision that led to the passage of other landmark legislation in the 20th century, including the Civil Rights Act of 1964, and the Voting Rights Act of 1965. Congress required former Confederate states to ratify the Fourteenth Amendment as a condition of regaining federal representation.

    Members of the Senate belonging to the two major political parties are organized into party conferences. The conferences (also referred to as caucuses) and their leaders play an important role in the daily functions of the Senate, including setting legislative agendas, organizing committees, and determining how action proceeds on the Senate floor. When senators represent third parties (examples include the Populist Party of the 1890s and the Farmer-Labor Party of the mid-to-late 20th century) or serve as Independents, they typically work within the two established party conferences to gain committee assignments or manage legislation.

    The framers of the Constitution did not envision the creation of political parties, but parties quickly emerged. In the 1790s, members of the Senate divided into two factions, one that supported President George Washington's administration, known as the Federalists, and one that opposed it, known as the Democratic Republicans. During the early 19th century, these original parties collapsed or fractured, and by the 1830s two national parties—the Whigs and the Democrats—had structured American political action down to the local level and influenced the election of U.S. senators by state legislatures. When the Whig Party fell apart over the issue of slavery in the 1850s, the Republican Party was created, establishing the modern two-party system of Republicans and Democrats.

    Party leadership emerged in the late 19th and early 20th centuries, when both party conferences in the Senate elected leaders to speak for their members, coordinate action on the Senate floor, and work with the executive branch on policy priorities when in the same party as the president. To address their members' political and policy goals, the parties created steering committees, campaign committees, and policy committees. By the 21st century, senators of both party conferences granted their leaders a great deal of control over the Senate's agenda.
