Round 1
Published:
Thanks for accepting. I will now begin my opening statements.
0.1-Clarifications
PRO is arguing that Donald Trump is the worst president that has ever took office in the history of the United States of America.
0.2-Abbreviations
POTUS- President of the United States
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I.Comparisons
a.       Warren G. Harding is one of the most forgettable presidents in the history of the United States. This is for a good reason as Harding preferred a good game of cards, gambling, and women over his responsibility as POTUS. Often regarded as one of the worst presidents, he scored one place lower than Donald Trump himself in this recent survey of several scholars.
               i.     According to the same study as 1a, Franklin Pierce is, in fact, the worst POTUS ever. Scoring lower than both Harding and Trump. Unlike Harding, Franklin did not do just nothing, but absolutely negative things to push the United States into its deadliest war ever. He indirectly killed hundreds and thousands of people. I challenge PRO to prove that Trump has done anything worse than this. Consider this, voters, imagine if your dad, your mom, or any close one was ripped apart from you, and then brutally shot in a war. Now imagine what it would feel like to feel that terrible feeling over 400,000 times

b.     Richard Nixon resigned from office due to scandals, becoming the first president ever to do that.

c.      William Henry Harrison died after 31 days into his presidency, after doing almost nothing.

d.     George W. Bush’s presidency is marked with bad spots, like 9/11, and the Great Recession of 2008.

e.      Lyndon B. Johnson’s presidency led the United States into the Vietnam War, one of the only wars the United States has ever “lost” in.

f.       Ronald Reagan is also very controversial, terribly hated by the liberalists, and terribly loved by the conservatists.


II.Wrongdoings of Trump

a.      Trump’s wrongdoings are relatively minor compared to other presidents. Has he started a war? At the time of this writing, no. Has he been involved in a scandal that cost him his presidency? No. During the time of Trump’s presidency, has there been a terrible stock crash, that made half the nation hom
               i.     Even though Trump is not necessarily the best president of the United States, he is definitely not the worst. A few failed casinos, a not so good economy, and bad style, is again, not worse than the Civil or even Vietnam War.

b.     Trump has also devoted a lot of his money for his presidency, losing a good 1-2 billion dollars. This means he honestly cares about his responsibility as POTUS, unlike Warren G. Harding.

Thank you, VOTE CON, and I await PRO’s response.

Had pro not forfeited, I would have suggested you both ask the moderators to delete the debate.
Anyway, con, you can always launch this one again and reuse your same opening.
