Conflicts between President Donald Trump and his rival Joe Biden have occurred as both faces each other in the upcoming US election 2020.
Both fought over the pandemic, violence at protests, the economy, and even their families. They were seen angrily shouting. As per the opinion polls, Mr. Biden has a steady single-digit lead over Donald Trump with 35 days.
Donald Trump accused Mr. Biden of being beholden to socialists in his party, saying: “They’re going to dominate you, Joe, you know that.”
“Right now I’m the Democratic party,” retorted Mr. Biden.
Mr. Biden said, “Here’s the deal: everything he’s saying so far is simply a lie.
“I’m not here to call out his lies. Everybody knows he’s a liar.”
Mr. Trump replied, “Joe, you’re the liar.”
According to the international news agency, Mr. Trump challenged Mr. Biden to say whether he would pack the Supreme Court, adding more justices to tilt its ideological balance, as some Democrats have urged.
BBC stated that Trump has asked Biden to release a list of nominees for the supreme court.
Biden said, “Will you shut up, man?”
“Who’s on your list, Joe?” Mr. Trump said. “He’s going to pack the court.”
The moderator, Chris Wallace, cut in to move the debate on.
“That was really a productive segment,” said Mr. Biden with apparent sarcasm. “Keep yapping, man.”
Mr. Trump replied: “The people understand, Joe. Forty-seven years, you’ve done nothing.”
Debate on coronavirus
Mr. Biden also slammed the President on the coronavirus pandemic.
He said, “He panicked or he looked at the stock market,”
“A lot of people died and a lot more are going to die unless he gets a lot smarter, a lot quicker,” Mr. Biden said.
On the other hand, Mr. Trump opposed him using the word ‘smart’.
“You graduated either the lowest or almost the lowest in your class,” the president said. “Don’t ever use the word smart with me. Don’t ever use that word.”
Debate on law-and-order
The fierce battle continued, Mr. Biden said about law and order, “This is a president who has used everything as a dog whistle to try to generate racist hatred, racist division.”
Mr. Trump said Mr. Biden while supporting the 1994 crime bill, had referred to African Americans as “super predators”. Biden denied it.
Mr. Trump said: “You can’t even say the word ‘law enforcement’ because if you did say those words you would lose all of your radical left supporters.”
In response to a question from the moderator, Mr. Biden said: “I’m totally opposed to defunding the police officers.”
