Reparations/Voter Suppression:

Trump-Pence: In June 2019, Trump blatantly told The Hill “I don’t see it happening,” when it comes to reparations, so there’s that. As far as voter suppression goes Trump has made harmful moves in the race to Election Day, by most recently undermining the United States Post Service and spreading misinformation about absentee ballots via Twitter.

Grade: F

Not much more to expand upon here, the proof is in the putting.

Biden-Harris: During a town hall on reparations with the NAACP in the summer, Biden said he would support studies that that explore ways to get direct payments for reparations, but has not explicitly stated that he supports reparations. In September Biden banded together a “special litigation” unit, comprised of two former solicitors general and hundreds of lawyers to help fight against the onslaught of voter suppression taking place across the country.

Grade: C

The Biden-Harris campaign passes for having a plan, but the hesitancy to fully say they fully support cash-funded reparations isn’t comforting.
