President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden got heated during their first chance to challenge each other face to face during the first presidential debate. Hardly a minute went by without one of the candidates interrupting the other, whether on the coronavirus, the Supreme Court or the economy. Even the moderator, Fox News' Chris Wallace, couldn't always stay above the fray. For access to live and exclusive video from CNBC subscribe to CNBC PRO:
President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden had their first chance to challenge each other face to face. They did - a lot.
Hardly a minute went by in the 90-minute brawl without one of the candidates angrily interrupting the other, whether on the coronavirus pandemic, the Supreme Court, the economy or anything else, including each other’s families.
“Will you shut up, man?” Biden snapped at Trump at one point. “You’re the worst president America has ever had,” he said later.
“China ate your lunch,” Trump shot back at Biden during questions on the economy.
Even the moderator, Fox News’ Chris Wallace, couldn’t always stay above the fray.
“I hate to raise my voice, but why shouldn’t I be different than the two of you?” the exasperated host said at one point.
Here are the highlights.

  • The most important subject you can debate is Foreign affairs. It does not matter if the economy is great and you have suave polite leaders, if your Country is at war with an expansionist dictatorship (China) then you are in big trouble. Appeasing dictatorships does not work . Trump is a leader that will stand up to Chinas bullying and their incacerating of i million Muslims.

  • It seems that the image that Trump is trying to portray is that Biden is a 77 year old demented old man, while Trump is a 74 year old young healthy lad. I can see it now. Trump in his hoodie skateboarding with all the other young cool cabinet members, while Biden in an elderly home having his diaper changed. American politics are so interesting.

  • Although Trump is a very, very, very rude president in terms of racism and attitude. There are a few upsides to him being president : he can defend his country against China and USA’s economy went up, when he is president. So, why do I have a feeling if we vote for Joe Biden, we will regret it in terms of economy and defending the country. Well, we’ll se when it happens

Some places in the country or most never go back to 40 hour. Biden choice for vise president she no experience with dealing with North Korea or China, which President Thrump kept good relationship, but media will not give him credit. The only plan that Biden had for the exaggerated pandemic is more shutdown. Biden will mess with your constitional rights. I know you all are Thrump haters. This man Biden will destroy US! Thrump shutdown the country immediately Biden lieing. This virus has a 97% RECOVERY RATE ! Wake up! Biden is not all there. Do you really want a President with dementia! Thank you Mr Thrump for taking all the crap from the biased mediator, media, and dumbazz Biden. 🇺🇲🇺🇸❤️❤️❤️🇺🇸🇺🇲🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸🇺🇲🇺🇸🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲
