We need to work to regain our standing with other countries


With the way every country is in a bad position because of the virus, it is important that whoever is president next does not get petty about things and works for the best interest of the country.

Black Lives Matter, the Holocaust, gay rights and all of the rest of it will have to be something we can work on when we get the United States of America back in good standing with the world’s economic order and develop relationships with other countries.

All of those other issues are luxuries of a successful country, and right now, we need to focus on having a country that is strong in the world order. If we have leaders and people in powerful positions that just want to make money for themselves or be reelected by making big deals out of things that are not as important as the United States of America, then we need to do what we should have done a long time ago, and that is to realize that a lot of people take everything for granted.

Take a look at what’s happening to people with the virus and realize that things could get a lot worse.
