I will be arguing that Trump should not be reelected in 2020. The time to argue is 2 weeks and the voting period is two weeks.
R1: Opening Arguments
The resolution of the debate is that Trump should not be reelected. The debate’s resolution is not about who should be elected but about who should not be elected thus it is my burden to prove only that Trump should not be reelected. Any arguments like “but Hillary” or “but Obama” are wholly irrelevant to the debate and should not be brought up.
II. Trump has shown signs of early dementia
The Mayo Clinic lists several signs of dementia including :
- Memory loss
- Difficulty communicating
or finding words
- Difficulty with
visual and spatial ability, such as getting lost while driving
reasoning or problem-solving
- Difficulty handling
- Difficulty with
coordination and motor functions
- Confusion and disorientation
A. Memory Loss
Before Hurricane Dorian struck the Bahamas, Trump repeatedly claimed that he never heard of a category 5 hurricane despite the fact that multiple category 5 hurricanes occurred during his presidency . To make matters worse, he made a doctored map that shows Alabama in the way of the hurricane when Alabama was not threatened .
This isn’t the first time he displayed signs of memory loss. A few months ago, Trump claimed that his father was born in Germany. His grandfather was born in Germany, but his father was born in NY .
He also has shown that he repeatedly mispronounces names and forgets them . Ironically, Trump claimed in 2017 to have one of the “greatest memories of all time” 
B. Difficulty Communicating and Finding Words
Trump has repeatedly shown that he is having trouble communicating and finding words, including calling the CEO of Apple “Tim Apple”  Earlier this year at CPAC, Trump hugged the flag and gave a 2-hour speech that went off script and was completely incoherent .
C. Confusion and Disorientation
In 2017, Trump got disoriented and couldn’t find his limo despite the fact that it was right in front of him . He also climbed on Air Force One with toilet paper stuck to his shoes  and shown an inability to close an umbrella .
This alone should concern all of us and be enough to vote a President out of office.
III. Trump’s Tweets Show that He is Unfit for Office
If Obama tweeted even one of the things that Trump has tweeted, Republicans would have impeached him 2 years ago. Here’s a sampling of his worst offenses:
- Did Crooked Hillary
help disgusting (check out sex tape and past) Alicia M become a U.S. citizen so
she could use her in the debate?
- Rep. Tlaib wrote a
letter to Israeli officials desperately wanting to visit her grandmother.
Permission was quickly granted, whereupon Tlaib obnoxiously turned the approval
down, a complete setup. The only real winner here is Tlaib’s grandmother. She
doesn’t have to see her now!
- It's freezing and
snowing in New York--we need global warming!
America needs a president who is fit for office and is competent to perform his duties. Time and time again Trump has proven that he is unfit for office. He thus should not be reelected.
