  Biden makes closing pitch to TV viewers — without Trump's interruptions After a cacophonous debacle in the first presidential debate, American voters were given a chance on Thursday to watch, without interruption, the candidates vying for high office. Joe Biden and Donald Trump each had their own prime-time slot in town hall events on competing television networks. The bizarre scene was triggered by an unusual turn of events, featuring a dispute over the debate format precipitated by Trump's COVID-19 diagnosis.

The Biden campaign on Friday launched a new counterattack on President Donald Trump and his response to the coronavirus pandemic, zeroing in on his approach to dealing with China throughout the crisis.

Trump offered little vision and barely any policy, while Biden was solid. Trump failed to slow down Biden just days before the election. The president needed a big win, but Biden maintained his ground with that one statement, looking straight into the camera: “You know Biden attacked the oil industry.

Trump, on the other hand, praised the work of his administration twelve days before the presidential election and was once again optimistic that the USA could soon leave the crisis behind. He does not expect a "dark winter" like Biden. The coronavirus will "disappear" and the pandemic will soon be over. And once again Trump emphasized with regard to the virus, "it is." It's not my fault that it got here, it's China's fault. "Biden will shut down the whole country, with dire consequences for the country, he warned. If there were more lockdowns because of the virus e, many people would lose their jobs and the number of suicides would increase.

Democratic nominee Joe Biden was the first candidate to interrupt his rival during the second and final debate before Election Day in less than two weeks. Biden said President Donald Trump 's claim that he allocated money to American farmers from money from China was actually from U.S. taxpayer money.

Biden replied that he did not want to close the country, but rather put an end to the pandemic. The Democrat accuses Trump that many Americans with COVID-19 would be alive without his mismanagement of the pandemic.

One of the other topics was health policy. In a heated argument, the candidates argued over the future of health care. Trump accused his challenger of striving for "socialist medicine". On the other hand, he wanted to abolish the system of health insurance and nursing care introduced by his predecessor Barack Obama and known as "Obamacare" and to introduce "a wonderful new health care system". Biden, on the other hand, stressed that "everyone should have the right to affordable health care". That has nothing to do with socialism.

Trump: My Korea Policy Saved Millions of Lives

Another topic was Trump's relationship with North Korea's ruler Kim Jong Un. Trump said he had achieved great things in the conflict with North Korea. He prevented a war with North Korea. Without his policy of dialogue, "millions of people" would have died in a war, Trump claimed. Trump said he inherited a "mess" from the previous government under President Barack Obama and Vice President Biden. Now both countries have "a very good relationship". Biden accused Trump of giving "legitimation" to dictator Kim Jong Un. Through his meetings, he had given North Korea time to further develop its own weapons program. Kim was a "gangster", he added, with whom one could not meet without clear conditions.

Trump 's early attack on Biden over China -- while it may prove effective, given his skills at hammering home a negative narrative -- is Trump transformed US-China policy. Unlike many of Trump 's political attacks , his critique of China does bear some relation to the truth and attracts some bipartisan support.

A comparison with Hitler caused a stir. Trump was in the process of talking about his "good relationship" with the autocrat Kim and heads of government of other countries, when Biden replied: "And we had a good relationship with Hitler before he invaded Europe." Biden wanted to make it clear that he considers Trump's course towards authoritarian rulers to be too soft and therefore a danger to international peace.

Biden criticizes persistent systemic racism

There is still not total equality in the United States, Biden said, referring to the persistent structural racism in the United States. Trump continues to promote racism. "He pours oil into every single racist fire," said Biden. Trump, in turn, claimed he had done more for African Americans and blacks than any other president before him, with the exception of Abraham Lincoln. "I'm the least racist person in this room," Trump said. Cases of police violence against black people are unfortunate individual cases.

But Trump and Biden let each other finish speaking and largely followed the moderator's questions. This time they expressed their disapproval for each other more subtly, more with a grin or a shake of the head.
