The president, who constantly interrupts the Democrat, assures that his rival does not know how to react to crises
Donald Trump and Joe Biden debate ahead of the presidential elections in the United States. The six issues the White House hopefuls address are Trump and Biden’s track record; the future of the Supreme Court; the covid-19 pandemic; the economy; racial tensions and violence in cities; and the integrity of the electoral process. It is foreseeable, however, that Biden will bring the issue of the Republican’s non-payment of taxes to debate. Hours before the start, the Democratic candidate presented his tax return, evidence that he has prepared to fight on this issue.
The first crossing between Trump and Biden is moderated by journalist Chris Wallace, one of the most respected figures in the chain Fox News. Wallace clarifies at the start that for health reasons the candidates will not shake hands. EL PAÍS broadcasts the debate live and direct on the web accompanied by a live with analysis and fact checking on the statements of the candidates. The debate takes place at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio, a key state in the elections on November 3.
