Ahead of the November 3rd U.S. presidential election, Democratic Leader Joe Biden and incumbent Republican President Donald Trump will face each other in their first debate on Tuesday night (U.S. time). The debate, hosted by Fox News, will be the first of three debates ahead of the November election.
The presidential election debate provides a platform for the two leaders to outline their visions for a country ravaged by multiple crises, including protests against the Black Live Matter and the coronavirus pandemic that killed more than 200,000 people in America Life came and which led to an economic downturn. The debate is expected to last 90 minutes.
Here are the live updates from the US presidential debate:
Donald Trump is defending his new election in the Supreme Court, Amy Coney Barrett, saying, “She is good in every way. I think she will be excellent.”
Joe Biden attacks Donald Trump for coronavirus: “7 million have been infected with the virus. The president has no plan.”
The first topic of discussion is healthcare. The moderator asks Trump about his health plan as he is against Obamacare. “I’m cutting drug prices by 80 to 90 percent and I’m going with my favorite nations,” said President Donald Trump.
Republican President Donald Trump and Democratic rival Joe Biden did not shake hands or wear masks as they entered their first White House debate Tuesday and adhered to social distancing protocols during the coronavirus pandemic.
The two contestants took the stage at the same time and smiled when Fox News host Chris Wallace said they would not shake hands. “How are you?” Biden said and reached out his arms to Trump.
President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden took the stage on Tuesday for their first televised debate, haunted by a deeply divided nation 35 days before the most tense US election in recent years. There was no handshake when the two men took the stage, and although this was due to the limitations of Covid-19, the lack of the traditional greeting symbolized the bitterness that engulfed the country on the final countdown to November 3rd.
