The two parties congresses presented a very different picture of the United States
What the Democratic convention depicts is that the United States is in a dark period.. The government has failed to fight the epidemic, the epidemic continues to rage, the economy is seriously declining, the unemployment rate is still high, and anti racial discrimination protests are sweeping across the country. The United States needs healing leaders who are compassionate, decent, and can bridge social divisions and repair the international image of the United States.
What the Republican Congress described was a positive and bright picture of the United States. The epidemic is fading, vaccines are around the corner, and the economy is booming. There is no systematic racism in the United States, so we should strengthen the maintenance of law and order. Trump will have to work for another four years if the United States is to regain its power.
