No doubt Biden is a better choice but he won't be the 'fix' that's needed for America.
while Biden isn't exactly a far left progressive candidate, he's not a "republican in democrat clothing" either. He does have plans o make the wealthy pay more in taxes. he does have plans to address climate change. He does have plans to provide health care to more Americans.
Biden represents the establishment American way and anybody who listens to him should know. But the positive side of a Biden win is in Bernie working from within the party to change it to become a socially responsible party for the people.
I guess the question is, will Sanders actually stick around the Democratic party this time. Remember, he's been sitting as an independent senator for years, and only becomes a Democrat when he wants to hijack the party for his own purposes. (Hmmmm... I wonder if he ever thought that if he actually, you know, BECAME a democrat, he might have had enough support within the party to win the primaries, rather than saying "boo! Hiss! You're evil! Now support me while I run for president".
Do we as Canadians really care? The negatives of Trump are mostly in their domestic policy. Trump could prove to be better for Canada because he won't honour any promises to his people when trade relations and profiting for the very wealthy class are his real priorities. He would be better for Canada than Biden and almost certainly better for China.
Ummm... no he wouldn't.

Trump has given us a trade war, with tariffs slapped on things like steel and aluminium (even after we signed our free trade deal). One of his closet advisors has made some pretty stupid comments that have affected Canada/US relations.

Then there are also the policies and actions that Trump has that aren't directly related to Canada, but will harm us regardless... his covid response will mean that the disease will continue to affect the world for much longer than it should (which affects Canada, since we share so much trade as well as a common border). His environmental policies (e.g. global warming denial) will impact all countries in the world, since carbon dioxide does not stop a the American borders. And his financial incompetence risks damaging the American economy, which will end up dragging the whole global economy down with it.
