US Election 2020: First Presidential Debate Trump Vs Biden
Republican President Donald Trump and Democratic rival Joe Biden battled fiercely over the integrity of economy, COVID-19, race and violence.
Ahead of upcoming US Presidential elections, President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden waded into their first debate on Wednesday morning (September 30). Both the candidates are currently debating over several topics such as the Supreme Court, Coronavirus, economy, race and violence etc. The candidates traded jabs on the controversial question of Trump’s Supreme Court pick Amy Coney Barrett and the pandemic response at a time when the Coronavirus has killed more than 200,00o Americans and plunged the economy.
Trump picked Barrett days after the death of justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, sparking fears among Democrats that Trump is pushing through his agenda to move the country’s highest court to a 6-3 conservative majority. A total of three 2020 presidential debates are scheduled during the final stretch of the race for the White House. Two more debates are coming up next month, on October 15 at Miami, Florida and October 22, at Nashville, Tennessee.
