I've also seen US teachers spending hundreds of dollars out of their own pockets to stock classrooms.

I spent a lot of time in European schools and I've never heard of teachers having to stock their own classrooms or fundraise for things like playgrounds, etc.

Most people here have no idea how the US government actually works. They just come here to bitch.

Unfortunately, it doesn't matter. His word is law to his supporters and congressional Republicans.

Only $5000? He got lucky.

And it's potentially very harmful to the health of yourself and those around you.

Oh yea, is voting against every UN ceasefire resolution your idea of forthcoming? Or maybe pulling aid to UNRWA? Or letting big tech use AI and other technology in the assault on Gaza?

It's like you didn't even read what I said. The Biden admin's response has maybe not been enough for you, but it's a ton more than Trump and the Republicans would ever do.

And if you're not voting for Biden, you're just helping Trump and you'll get even less of what you want. Yes, that sucks, but that's how it is in the electoral college.

You're not only voting for a person, you're voting for an administration.

The Biden administration has been much more forthcoming toward Gaza and Palestine than Trump and Republicans would ever be.

By not voting for the administration that would do the most, even if it's not enough, you're really aiding the administration that would do the least. That's how it works in a winner-take-all, electoral-college system.

Sweden had Gripen fighter jets he wanted to buy.

From your comment above, that's against your own interests.

2014 was 10 years ago already? Dang. Remember to go out there and live life.

All true. In the US, you don't have to win a majority to win the election.

But I highly doubt that Democrats are going to sit this one out.

And if they just show up to the same degree as in 2020, Trump still needs to broaden support in the key swing states to actually win them. If he's not doing it nationally, chances are he's not doing it in the battlegrounds.
