Current Conflicts In America

The upcoming election between Former President Donald Trump and President Biden has many political watchers worried.

At the moment the nation seems to be divided between the candidates after last weekend’s debate between the two. Trump seems to be poised to win against Biden after Biden performed below expectations according to political insiders and watchers.

Add to that, the past couple of years have been a trying time for Americans. 

People have been regularly bombarded with the news of civil unrest due to the large influx of migrants and the two major wars still raging on.

The U.S. has been funding Ukraine with billions of dollars in military aid to fight against Russia since 2022, after Russia invaded the neighboring country.

The Israel and Palestine conflict has immensely divided the U.S. Washington continues to  donate millions of dollars in aid to Palestinian civilians during the war with Israel. Hamas attacked Israel late last year killing Israelis, disabling Israel’s intelligence and operational systems. This led Israel to retaliate against Palestine.
