President Donald Trump called New York a 'ghost town' as he slammed Democratic lockdowns for triggering economic crisis in cities like the Big Apple during Thursday's presidential debate.

In the debate, Trump accused Democratic nominee Joe Biden of trying to destroy the economy through lockdowns to curb the coronavirus crisis.

'If you go and look at what has happened to New York, it’s a ghost town. Take a look at what’s happening to New York. It’s dying,' Trump said on the debate stage in Nashville, Tennessee.

But New York Governor Andrew Cuomo hit back on the Late Show with Stephen Colbert after the debate Thursday night, saying: 'New York has a lower infection rate than the White House.'

Trump sat down with Sinclair Broadcasting Network's Eric Bolling in the Rose Garden for a pre-taped town hall which aired on Wednesday night. Trump also accused Twitter and Facebook of engaging in election interference by blocking a New York Post expose about Hunter's laptop.

Trump used the debate to slam the Democratic governor's handling of the crisis, saying restaurants in New York have been forced to adapt to coronavirus precautions such as using plexiglass and minimizing traffic flow indoors.

'When you talk about plexiglass, these are restaurants that are dying. These are businesses with no money. Putting up plexiglass is unbelievably expensive and it’s not the answer. I mean, you’re going to sit there in a cubicle wrapped in plastic?' he said.

'These are businesses that a dying Joe, you can’t do that to people,' he added in a direct jab at Gov. Cuomo’s strict lockdown measures.

Power creator teases 'intense' finish to Ghost season 1, possible Tommy return

  Power creator teases 'intense' finish to Ghost season 1, possible Tommy return 'Power Book II: Ghost' creator Courtney Kemp breaks down the midseason finale and teases the rest of season 1: "It gets so much more intense. All of the relationships get much more complicated. Tariq has to make some decisions, some familiar faces from Power show back up."With that declaration from Saxe (Shane Johnson), the first half of Power Book II: Ghost has concluded. Following the six-season run of Power, creator Courtney Kemp mapped out an ambitious plan to expand the universe via four spin-offs, and it's only five episodes into the step one, but the results are a resounding success. Ghost has provided record-breaking ratings for Starz and already earned a second season renewal.

In a tense, antagonistic town hall, Donald Trump faced a thorough grilling from NBC’s Savannah Guthrie, a former litigator. This isn’t the first time Trump has demurred when asked to disown QAnon, whose supporters believe Trump is secretly battling a Democratic cabal engaged in pedophilia.

Trump blasted Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf of Pennsylvania during his visit to a factory in Allentown last week, pushing for the crucial state in his reelection campaign to reopen. The president has been critical of those states who are slow to open, accusing some Democratic governors of playing politics.

'Take a look at New York and what’s happened to my wonderful city. For so many years, I loved it, it was vibrant. It’s dying, everyone’s leaving New York,' the president said.

But Biden stressed the human toll of the virus that has seen more than 8million Americans infected.

'Take a look at what New York has done in terms of the turning the curve down, in terms of the number of people dying,' Biden said.

The former Vice President said he doesn't see 'red states' and 'blue states', but he did blame GOP state leaders for creating larger coronavirus spikes with laid back measures.

'Look at the states that are having such a spike in the coronavirus. They’re the red states, or the states in the Midwest or the states in the upper Midwest — that’s where the spike is occurring significantly, but they’re all Americans,' Biden said.

Biden stressed protective coronavirus measures but also said businesses needed financial help from the government to see the pandemic through.

Biden quipped back: 'People are learning to die with it.'

2 candidates, 20 voter questions: Comparing and contrasting Biden, Trump town halls

  2 candidates, 20 voter questions: Comparing and contrasting Biden, Trump town halls One difference: Biden's first question from a voter came less than two minutes into the town hall. Trump's came nearly 20 minutes into the event.On the surface, the two town halls were as different from one another as the candidates' personalities, but there were also marked similarities, such as the relative length of time the Biden and Trump spoke, the number of voter questions they fielded and the topics discussed. And though the town halls were more than 1,100 miles apart, they were held in two of the most critical 2020 swing states, with Trump in Florida and Biden in Pennsylvania.

Donald Trump has announced the details of a ‘Platinum Plan’ of economic empowerment for black Americans. It includes big investments in black communities, as well as designating both the KKK and Antifa as terrorist organizations.

New York City has turned into a ghost town with typically-packed subways cars left completely empty and tourist-filled hot spots like Times Square and Central Park eerily deserted. Airports were eerily deserted on Friday due to the limits on travel set by President Trump to combat the spread of the Virus.

Governor Cuomo appeared on Stephen Colbert's Late Show after the debate, and branded the President's handling of the virus as 'a historic government blunder'.

'He’s never had an idea about how to do this,' said Cuomo. 'Under this president, about 1000 people die everyday.'

Cuomo’s top aide Melissa DeRosa also tweeted: 'New York is shut down? News to me.'

Celebrities also slammed Trump for his comments claiming New York is dead.

The View host Joy Behar tweeted: 'New York is not your wonderful city. New Yorkers hate you.'

Comedian Samantha Bee said: 'He thinks New York is a ghost town because every time he's here all he hears is "Booo."'

According to a report this month, nearly 60 percent of businesses closed across the country due to the pandemic will never reopen again.

A third of New York City’s small businesses may also never reopen their doors, according to a July report.

Trump stressed that state-enforced lockdowns aren’t a guaranteed way to stop COVID-19 outbreaks.

'Take a look at North Carolina. They’re having spikes and they’ve been closed and they’re getting killed financially. We can’t let that happen, Joe. You can’t let that happen,' he said.

Trump himself contracted COVID-19, which led to the cancellation of the second official debate when it was made virtual, as did around three dozen White House members.
