Comparing the Presidential Whips

There are many things to compare and contrast about president Trump and former vice president Joe Biden. Among these is the question of who drives the coolest car. Both candidates use American made vehicles, to show support for our country’s automakers, but their taste in cars differs dramatically. It is well known that as president, Trump is required to ride around in the 11 ton armored Cadillac limo fittingly dubbed “The Beast.” However, Trump also owns a 2011 Chevrolet Camaro Indianapolis 500 pace car, and two other Cadillacs. While Trump owns some shiny new cars, Biden seems to be on the other end of the Spectrum. You would think that because Biden and his party support the idea of phasing out gas powered cars and replacing them with electric cars, that he would drive a fuel efficient, low emissions vehicle. However, the opposite is true. Biden enjoys cruising around in his 1967 Chevrolet Corvette, which was featured on the “Jay Leno’s Garage” TV show. In my opinion, both candidates drive some very cool vehicles.
