Both candidates transferred to Twitter the hard crosses they maintained during the television event.
As if the 90 minutes of the television debate had not been enough, Donald Trump and Joe Biden extended their discussions to social media, where they continued to mark their differences through harsh accusations and cross messages.
In his Twitter account, the current US president published an image in which he saw his figure “facing” those of Joe Biden and Chris Wallace, the Fox News journalist who acted as the moderator of the event and who Trump attacked on several occasions.
“I knew I would have to argue with you too.”, snapped the president when he received a call for attention from Wallace, who asked him several times to wait his turn to speak and avoid interrupting Biden
Considered by viewers to be one of the most credible journalists in the United States and esteemed for his impartiality Despite being registered as a Democratic voter, Wallace had already moderated a debate in the last elections and had had a cross with Trump, who accused him of “being controlled by the most radical left.”
Four years later, it was again Wallace who embarrassed the president by asking him whether he would condemn the white supremacists and I would ask them not to intervene in the racial protests.
“Sure, I’m willing (to ask you to step back), but I’d say almost everything I see comes from the left wing, not from the right wing. I am willing to do anything. I want to see peace, “Trump replied.
Meanwhile, Biden urged him to publicly condemn white supremacists. “Say it, do it, say it,” he repeated.
The president, addressing the moderator, replied: “Who would you like me to condemn?” “Proud Boys (a group of the far right) take a step back and stay prepared, but I tell you something, someone has to do something with Antifa (anarchist movement) and the left because this is not a right wing problem“, he opined.
“Proud Boys” (Proud Boys) is a group famous for its misogynistic and anti-Islam rhetoric, and is considered a hate group by the civil rights organization Southern Poverty Law Center.
They describe themselves as an association that fights for freedom of expression and that supports Trump in his attempts to “restore law and order”, in front of the racial marches of the Black Lives Matter movement.
In some internet forums, members of the supremacist group “celebrated” Trump’s response to Wallace’s question and Biden did not hesitate to take advantage of this situation to “hit” his political opponent.
“This. This is Donald Trump’s America,” the Democratic candidate wrote, citing a tweet that reflected the positive reaction of the Proud Boys to hearing the president avoid condemning their violent actions.
In addition, Biden charged the Republican leader for his lack of proposals during the debate (“You heard a lot coming out of Donald Trump’s mouth, can you name something he said to make your life better?”) and called on the undecided to lean towards the formula he shares with vice candidate Kamala Harris (” Friends, we don’t have to put up with four more years of that “).
