CLEVELAND – Republican President Donald Trump and his Democratic rival Joe Biden fought fiercely against Trump’s leadership over the coronavirus pandemic, the economy and the integrity of the November election in a chaotic first debate on Tuesday marked by personal insults, name calling and repeated interruptions from Trump

Moderator Chris Wallace never established control of the debate The two White House contenders conversed and hurled insults in a breathtaking political brawl that made it difficult for either another to assert his point of view

« Do you want to shut up, man? » It’s so unpresidential, ”said an exasperated Biden after Trump’s repeated interruptions in the first segment of the Supreme Court debate

Biden then called Trump a ‘clown’, ‘racist’ and ‘Putin’s puppy’ in reference to Russian President Vladimir Putin and told Trump: ‘You are the worst president America has ever had »

Wallace said: « I think the country would be better served if we allowed the two people to talk with less interruptions. I invite you sir to do that »

Biden, 77, has always been ahead of Trump, 74, in national opinion polls, although polls in the battlefield states that will decide the election show a tighter competition. was difficult to determine if the debate would move the needle

Biden questioned Trump’s leadership on the coronavirus pandemic, which has killed more than 200,000 Americans, saying Trump panicked and failed to protect Americans because he was more concerned about the economy

« He panicked or he looked at the stock market, » Biden said of Trump, who has pushed states to reopen their economies and downplayed the threat of the pandemic

« A lot of people are dead and a lot more are going to die unless he gets a lot smarter, a lot faster, » Biden said

« You scored the lowest or almost the lowest in your class Never use the word smart with me Never use that word, » Trump said

« But I’m telling you, Joe, you could never have done the job we did. You don’t have it in your blood, » he says

With over a million Americans already voting early and time is running out to change their mind or influence the small group of undecided voters, the stakes were high as the two White House candidates took the stage five weeks before the 3rd Election Day

The two suitors did not shake hands as they entered the debate, adhering to social distancing protocols because of the coronavirus

Trump, who refused to commit to a peaceful transfer of power if he lost the election, repeated his claims that postal voting would lead to fraud, although experts argued that, historically, fraud has been extremely rare in US elections

Trump said he expects the Supreme Court to rule on the election and « review the ballots » He urged his supporters to go and watch the ballot

“If I see tens of thousands of manipulated ballots, I cannot accept this,” he said, adding: “They are cheating”

Biden urged Americans to come up with a plan to vote and assured voters Trump would be gone if Biden won. He said he would not declare victory until the result was validated

« If we get the votes it will be over He’s going to leave, » he said, adding that Trump’s complaints about the mail-in ballots were that Trump was « scared » to count the votes

Trump has defended his efforts to quickly fill a US Supreme Court seat, claiming that « elections have consequences » and he had the right over Democratic objections

« I’ll tell you very simply we won the election, elections have consequences We have the Senate and the White House and we have a phenomenal candidate respected by all, » Trump said in defense of his candidate, the Conservative Judge Amy Coney Barrett

Biden said the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s seat should be filled after the election, when it was clear who the president would be

« We should wait, we should wait to see the outcome of this election, » Biden said, adding that a more conservative Supreme Court would endanger the affordable care law known as Obamacare

Trump is moving swiftly to occupy the Ginsburg seat in hopes of consolidating a 6-3 Tory majority on the ground, a key priority for social conservatives

Democrats argued that Republicans were hypocritical for moving quickly to take the seat given they blocked then-President Barack Obama’s nomination to the Supreme Court in 2016, arguing he should wait until after the November elections

Hours before the debate, Biden released his 2019 tax returns and his campaign called on Trump, who has been criticized for not releasing his statements, to do the same

Biden took the plunge two days after The New York Times reported that Trump had paid just $ 750 in federal income taxes in 2016 and 2017 – and none in 10 of the previous 15 years – after years of reporting significant losses by companies

Biden’s taxes showed he and his wife Jill paid over $ 346,000 in federal taxes and other payments for 2019 on income of nearly $ 985,000 before claiming a refund of almost $ 47,000 they said they overpaid the government

« I paid millions of dollars in taxes, millions of dollars in income taxes, » Trump said when asked about the New York Times report
