President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden had their first chance to challenge each other face to face. They did - a lot.
Hardly a minute went by in the 90-minute brawl without one of the candidates angrily interrupting the other, whether on the coronavirus pandemic, the Supreme Court, the economy or anything else, including each other’s families.
“Will you shut up, man?” Biden snapped at Trump at one point. “You’re the worst president America has ever had,” he said later.
“China ate your lunch,” Trump shot back at Biden during questions on the economy.
Even the moderator, Fox News’ Chris Wallace, couldn’t always stay above the fray.
“I hate to raise my voice, but why shouldn’t I be different than the two of you?” the exasperated host said at one point.
Here are the highlights.

  • Clickbait; there is no debate here, only something like a comedy show.

  • You know, we are missing out the biggest question here. Is Biden bi? If not, then why isn't him called Heteroden?

  • Obama Care sucks! On the East Coast as soon as it went into affect all the jobs went from 40 hours to 32 the new full time. People work two damn jobs to eat. Thrump is right it's no good. Some places in the country or most never go back to 40 hour. Biden choice for vise president she no experience with dealing with North Korea or China, which President Thrump kept good relationship, but media will not give him credit. The only plan that Biden had for the exaggerated pandemic is more shutdown. Biden will mess with your constitional rights. I know you all are Thrump haters. This man Biden will destroy US! Thrump shutdown the country immediately Biden lieing. This virus has a 97% RECOVERY RATE ! Wake up! Biden is not all there. Do you really want a President with dementia! Thank you Mr Thrump for taking all the crap from the biased mediator, media, and dumbazz Biden. 🇺🇲🇺🇸❤️❤️❤️🇺🇸🇺🇲🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸🇺🇲🇺🇸🇺🇸❤️🇺🇸🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲🇺🇲

  • again propaganda from the deep state !!

  • @

  • Biden is a conman and the worst president candidate in US history.

  • Americans should be ashamed that these 2 are apparently the best people they managed to come up with.

  • This isn't even a debate anymore, all they do is blame each other and spread hate instead of debating on the important issues. It seems like all that matters to them is bringing each other down and fighting like kids.

    • That's called Social Justice.

  • IDK how I found this adorable 😂

  • Bidennya estubo. 8 años junto con. Ovama ge fue lo qe isieron sacar atodos los latinos deportados ya retirese. Ballase adescanzar. Trump es mejor presidente america

  • yayks....... this is..... Imma grab the popcorn for whatever is gonna happen

  • The moderator must feel like they are teaching a Kindergarten class on zoom..

  • People in Europe keep wondering, out of'a country of 300 million plus population, these are the two canditates for presidency, how low a country can sink

  • 3:45 "Antifa is a idea, not a organization" I like Trumps reaction to it I had the same type of reaction when I heard that, what a knowledgeable canidate I must say sir🤣.

    • Joe Biden is a liar that’s all he does is lie he’s Been in office for 47 years and done nothing all he did is take money so trump

  • I came here expecting boring statistics, not a comedy show.

  • Meanwhile, Vlad Lad Putin has hypersonic missiles, China is doing great, and Kim have a new toy

  • Correction, Obama is the worst president. The illusion of racism was almost gone until Obama got into office. I mean Trump has denounced white supremacy already. How many more times do you need to hear it?

  • Just remember the only reason you have freedom is because my grandpa came over and saved you’re ass from being taken from Germany

  • People in Europe laughing at but I think they forgot we could destroy them in a blink of an eye😭

  • I was going for Joe, But I’m Voting For Trump Calling a Person a Clown.. it’s just Disrespectful and Low.. Imagine We bring him in power how the School System it’s going to be.. 🤮🤮🤮 No Morals Or Ethics TF is Joe Thinking..

  • Trump for sure

  • as a chinese neighbor across the sea, Biden is a famouse as a servant for china in japan, it means he is a dog of chinese government, and he will definitely WORK for xi jinping not for US. I don't respect Trump but he's better than Biden.

  • And this is still far better than Indian electoral debates. Still sucks though

    • ngl this time it was quite similar to what we see on TV the "your son is involved in corruption" the "will not criticize X until the other person criticize Y" and the infamous "a lot of people died"

  • 3:09 he actually DID condemn white supremacy, the democrats are stupid wtf who said that he didnt??? this is so similar to the fine people fiasco, he literally said he does not condone them at all during the rallies that took place. why are people so ignorant???

  • As a European , if I could vote , I would vote for Mr President Trump,GOD BLESS AMERICA

  • Jesus even here in Denmark we can several politicians with their own mics having a debate without the need to interrupt eachother constantly. This is just tiring to watch.

    • Danmark helt sikert

    • what does even in Denmark mean? Denmark is extremely highly developed and expensive country with well working democracy compared to almost all rest of the world so don't say like its some 3rd world . Your "even here in Danmark" sounds like "even here in Arabia we can have a Oil"

  • Whoever is watching this video do not vote for Joe Biden voteyou’re making the wrong mistake

  • Vote for Trump

  • Joe Biden is a liar that’s all he does is lie he’s Been in office for 47 years and done nothing all he did is take money so trump

  • Biden is Cancer to America

  • I swear in a future debate they're gonna throw hands

  • The majority of Trump's supporters are either conspiracy theorists or boomers. The majority of Biden's supporters don't even like him that much, they just hate Trump and go with Biden because he's against Donald. These two dinosaurs are awful.

  • Americans if you want satanism , wars , separatism, kids on drugs , pedophila vote for baiden. Im not even american but same thing was in mu coutry, same choice and we failed by chosing fardemocrats , i mean democratia is good and bad at the same time but you have to find extent. Read a book of Alberto Rivera , it explains a lot

    • Joe Pesci should chair these debates.

  • trump 2020

  • Thats why we need women in the politic

  • Comedy

  • Witness Testimony Han Yu was arrested on July 20, 2015, and detained at Haidian District Detention Center in Beijing for 37 days. In May 2004, Han received a phone call saying that her father, a Falun Gong practitioner who had been held at a detention center for three months, had died. It was not until another month later that the family was allowed to see his body, at the Xiao Zhuang village morgue in Liangxiang District. Dozens of police officers monitored the family the entire time. “I saw obvious injuries on his face, even after the makeup, the severe bruise below his left eye stood out. There was a trace of stitches starting from the throat down to where his clothes covered,” Han said. “I tried to unbutton the clothes. The police saw and quickly dragged me out. Later another family member went in and continued to unbutton, and [they] found stitches that went all the way to the stomach.” She was afraid her father was a victim of organ harvesting. No autopsy was allowed, and the body was cremated immediately. “We were not even allowed to cry when he was buried,” Han said. Officials watched them the entire time and prohibited any photographs from being taken. “After I heard about organ harvesting, I couldn’t imagine what had happened to my father before his death. It happened, and it is [still] happening,” she said. Another Victim: Family Only Allowed to See his Head Jiang Li described the tragic end of her father Jiang Xiqing. Jiang Li said that her father Jiang Xiqing, another Falun Gong practitioner, was also a victim of forced organ harvesting. Jiang Xiqing was arrested on May 2008 and taken to a forced labor camp. Jiang Li and three other family members visited him on January 27, 2009 and said he appeared normal. “Then at 3:40pm the next day, the labor camp called my brother and said he had died and immediately hung up,” Jiang Li said. “Seven of my family members arrived at the mortuary house at 10:30pm with the guidance of police officers. They read out the regulations-we could see the body for only five minutes, no cameras or communication devices, and we could only go to the freezer room to see Jiang’s head and not his whole body.” As Jiang Li’s elder sister looked at his face, she screamed because his nasal area was still warm. His upper teeth were biting his lower lip-he was alive. “We pulled out my father’s body halfway. We touched his chest, and it was warm. He was wearing a down jacket. My older sister prepared to perform CPR,” Jiang Li continued. “But were each forcibly dragged out of the freezer by four people. Uniformed and plainclothes officers pushed my father’s body into the freezer. They demanded that we quickly sign for cremation and pay the fees.”

  • You sick one! Is it not better to hold Bidens hand that he feels More attached to your shoulder 🤔
