Democratic candidate Joe Biden repeatedly attacked US President Donald Trump during the first debate that brought them together 35 days before the US presidential election.
“You are the worst president in American history,” Biden said during the debate, directing his speech to Trump.
Presidential candidate Joe Biden accused US President Donald Trump of lying to the people.
He added, “Trump does not have any health care plan and everything he talked about is an investigator, and this man does not know what he is talking about.”
The first debate between US presidential candidates Donald Trump and Joe Biden was launched at Case Western Reserve University, and it is the first of three scheduled debates between the two candidates.
Biden accused his counterpart Trump of causing the death of thousands, due to the lack of interest in the Obama Care program and the wearing of masks, and that he had not mentioned anything before about vaccines and did not listen to the opinion of science, and he asked people to inject themselves with disinfectants.
He added: “Trump knew the seriousness of the Corona virus since February and did not do anything, and failed to manage the file of the Corona virus outbreak.”
He pointed out that “Trump has not provided any support to the people in the medical field, nor does he have any plan regarding health care.”
In turn, Trump replied, saying: “We shut down the economy and produced thousands of ventilators, and very soon we will get a vaccine for Corona virus.”
He continued: “If the Democrats were in power, a million Americans would have died because of Corona,” explaining that “the administration of the Obama Care health care program is a disaster.”
Trump promised to “reduce drug prices,” stressing that “this is what no other US president has done, as medicines will be reduced by large rates, up to 80%, and this is a very expensive program.”
“You haven’t accomplished anything, Joe, for 47 years,” he said.
In turn, Joe Biden said, “Millions benefit from the Obama Care program, and what Trump is doing is that he is depriving them of it and assistance, and he does not have a plan on health care just as he does not have any plan, and he does not know what he is talking about.”
The first debate between US presidential candidates Donald Trump and Joe Biden took place at Case Western Reserve University, and it is the first of three scheduled debates between the candidates.
The two candidates entered the stage at the same time and smiled, while Fox News broadcaster Chris Wallace made it clear that they would not shake hands.
“How are you, man?” Biden said. He extended his arms towards Trump.
The debate takes 90 minutes with a limited audience adhering to the rules of social distancing due to the pandemic at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland.
This is the first of three scheduled debates.
Organizers said that about 80 people attended, including family members and guests of the candidates, two campaign staff, hosts, health and security officials and journalists.
Trump’s guests include first lady Melania Trump, his two sons Eric and Donald Jr., his two daughters Ivanka and Tiffany, and supporters such as Representative Jim Jordan and White House chief of staff Mark Meadows.
Biden’s wife, Jill, sat in his section.
With more than a million Americans already casting their ballots early and running out of time to change opinions or influence a small segment of undecided voters, the debate between the two candidates for the White House carries great stakes five weeks before the November 3 election.
Biden, 77, has steadily led Trump, 74, in nationwide polls, even though polls in crucial states show the competition’s convergence.
