Expats in the UAE are anxious about who the next American President would be.

With the US polls around the corner, expats in the UAE are anxious about who the next American President would be. They are divided over their choice. While some show satisfaction with the Republican candidate President Donald Trump, others want Joe Biden, the Democratic party candidate

Trump is not a bad choice. We have seen that all his decisions are crystal clear. He has shown interest in finding solutions to the Middle East issues, mainly to some pertaining to the Arab-Israeli conflict. The foreign policies of the US will remain the same no matter who is the President.- Hani Hammouda, Egyptian lawyer

I don't see any difference between the two candidates. However, since we have seen President Trump's policies, I would prefer him to stay for another term. I did not like what I heard about his contender's agenda, especially towards the Arabs. All the US decisions on Lebanon, taken during Trump tenure, including being indifferent to the overall situation there, were thanks to the stances of the Lebanese politicians. - Abir Chamas, Lebanese banker

I would prefer Trump. His decisions are clear. He has always stood his ground in his endeavours. He never backed down no matter how the pressure is from his opponents. - Rani Abou Ali, Lebanese real estate sales manager

Any presidential candidate would be better than Trump. I can't talk about Biden because I did not have a look at his agenda. But I definitely don't favour Trump for a new term. All his supporters inside his country are not partisans with moderate views. Trump was not fair, in my view, when tackling many issues. I would prefer that such a politician goes away from the political scene. A moderate player would be much favorable. - Walid El Sayed, Egyptian training manager

I am against Trump winning another presidential term. We have seen all the decisions he took and what he achieved. Even in America, many people did not approve of his policies. I want to see another President for the US. Hopefully, this will reflect positively on the Middle East vital matters and on the Arab region. - Sanad Zuhair Asiri, Jordanian PR manager

Iran tensions are the major boiling point in this region. With Biden in power, there will be some sort of reconciliatory efforts and return to the 2015 nuclear deal, but it will not be easy and a decision too late in the day. The Trump administration has already done enough damage and then to impose further sanctions this week is hitting more nails in the coffin. - Mahendrababu Anbalagan, Project coordinator
