An Eye on the 2020 United States Presidential Debate
The first presidential debate in the American elections 2020 took place yesterday 29 September at 9:00 pm eastern time (Today 30 September at 2:00 am in Algeria) between democratic candidate Joe Biden, and the Republican president Donald Trump. The debate was held in Case Western Reserve University, one of the top-ranked private research university in the US, and it is located in Cleveland, Ohio.
The debate was moderated by the Fox News Journalist Chris Wallace, who is the anchor of the famous chat show “Fox News Sunday”. The journalist Wallace explored some of the most heated subjects in the US such as the decision made by President Trump to nominate Amy Coney Barrett to succeed Ruth Bader Ginsburg as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States, in which Trump argued that Barrett is a “phenomenal nominee, respected by all” and added, “We won the elections, and elections have consequences.” This subject sparked a debate as Biden called out against the timing of this decision, and he had called the decision earlier “An abuse of power.”
The debate covered more controversial subjects such as President Trump’s performance during the Covid-19 pandemic, Health care and insurance, the US Economy, race, and violence in America, Climate change, in addition to the integrity of the elections.
