First 2020 Presidential Debate: WATCH LIVE Pres. Trump, Joe Biden go head-to-head | ABC News

>> IT'S OFFICIAL PRESIDENT TRUMP
HAS SENT HIS NOMINATION TO THE
SENATE AMY CONEY BARRETT MEETING
WITH MITCH McCONNELL AND OTHER
SENATORS AS SHE PREPARES TO BE
VOTED ON FOR THE FORMER SEAT OF
RUTH BADER GINSBURG ON THE
SUPREME COURT.
THE MAIN EVENT, TRUMP/BIDEN A
DEBATE YEARS IN THE MAKING THE
PRESIDENT AND FORMER VICE
PRESIDENT NOT GIVING ANY OPENING
STATEMENTS JUST GETTING RIGHT
INTO IT TONIGHT.
THE AUDIENCE IS SMALL BUT THE
STAKES ARE HIGH.
WILL THE DEBATE MOVE THE NEEDLE
FOR EITHER CANDIDATE?
OR HAVE VOTERS ALREADY MADE UP
THEIR MINDS?
WE'LL ALSO TAKE A TRIP DOWN
MEMORY LANE FOR HISTORICAL
PERSPECTIVE.
HOW TONIGHT MIGHT STACK UP
AGAINST THE BIGGEST MOMENTS OF
DEBATES PAST.
THE FACE-OFF HAPPENING AS THE
"NEW YORK TIMES" UNLOADS A NEW
ROUND OF REPORTING ON THE
PRESIDENT'S FINANCES SAYING THE
REALITY SHOW "THE APPRENTICE"
SAVED HIM FROM FINANCIAL RUIN.
"THE TIMES" REPORTS HE LOST
ALMOST $90 MILLION WHEN THE SHOW
DEBUTED WITH BIDEN POTENTIALLY
LOOKING TO POUNCE HOW MIGHT THE
PRESIDENT RESPOND TONIGHT?
>>> WILDFIRES TURNING DEADLY IN
NORTHERN CALIFORNIA.
AT LEAST THREE PEOPLE KILLED IN
THE FAST MOVING ZAG FIRE THE
EXPLOSIVE GLASS FIRE FORCING AN
ENTIRE TOWN TO EVACUATE IN THE
MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT.
ICONIC WINERIES INCINERATED.
>>> THE ALARMING NEW REPORT
ABOUT THE CORONAVIRUS IN
CHILDREN CLAIMING TOP OFFICIALS
AT THE WHITE HOUSE PRESSURED THE
CDC TO DOWNPLAY THE RISK OF
SENDING CHILDREN BACK TO SCHOOL.
THIS AS THE AMERICAN ACADEMY OF
PEDIATRICS FINDS THE PERCENT OF
CHILDREN WHO MAKE UP U.S. CASES
IS ON THE RISE.
>>> THE BREONNA TAYLOR CASE
CALLED INTO QUESTION AFTER A
GRAND JURY MEMBER ACCUSES THE
KENTUCKY ATTORNEY GENERAL OF
BEING MISLEADING.
WHAT THE JUDGE IS NOW ORDERING
TO TRY TO CLEAR THINGS UP.
>>> AND RESTAURANTS STRUGGLING
TO STAY AFLOAT HAVE A BIT OF AN
ISSUE WITH THE WEATHER CHANGE.
ARE SO-CALLED DINNER PODS REALLY
THE ANSWER?
GOOD EVENING EVERYONE I'M LINSEY
DAVIS.
THANKS SO MUCH FOR STREAMING
WITH US.
WELL, FOLKS, THE STAGE IS SET.
PRESIDENT TRUMP AND FORMER VICE
PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN ARE GETTING
READY TO FACE OFF TONIGHT.
IT'S ALL GOING DOWN IN THIS
HALL, THE FIRST DEBATE OF THE
PRESIDENTIAL RACE, THE FIRST
TIME THE TWO WILL SHARE THE SAME
STAGE IN 2020.
HERE IS A LOOK AT THE PODIUMS
WHERE THE CANDIDATES WILL SQUARE
OFF IN TWO HOURS ON THE CAMPUS
OF CASE WESTERN RESERVE
UNIVERSITY IN CLEVELAND, OHIO.
THE CANDIDATES AND THEIR
CAMPAIGNS HAVE BEEN TRADING JABS
FOR DAYS TRYING TO SET
EXPECTATIONS FOR TONIGHT'S
SHOWDOWN AMID THE BACK DROP OF
THE ONGOING FLOOD OF HEADLINES
RELATED TO THE PANDEMIC, RACIAL
JUSTICE, SUPREME COURT, AND THAT
STUNNING REPORT ABOUT THE
PRESIDENT'S TAX RETURNS.
THE STAKES ARE HIGH.
WITH SO MANY AMERICANS ALREADY
DECIDED ON WHO THEY'LL VOTE FOR
WILL TONIGHT MAKE A DIFFERENCE?
>> Reporter: TONIGHT WITH THE
HIGH STAKES DEBATE JUST HOURS
AWAY PRESIDENT TRUMP AND JOE
BIDEN TOUCHING DOWN IN
CLEVELAND.
THE FIRST QUESTION WILL GO TO
THE PRESIDENT AND HIS TEAM
EXPECTED TO BE ON HIS TAXES.
BIDEN ALREADY TODAY TRYING TO
SEIZE THE UPPER HAND ON THE
ISSUE RELEASING HIS LATEST TAX
RETURNS REVEALING HE PAID NEARLY
$300,000 IN FEDERAL TAXES IN
2019.
WE STILL DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH THE
PRESIDENT PAID.
>> IT'S UNDER AUDIT.
THEY HAVE BEEN FOR A LONG TIME.
THE IRS DOES NOT TREAT ME WELL.
>> Reporter: WE DO KNOW WHAT
PRESIDENT TRUMP PAID IN 2016 THE
YEAR HE WON THE WHITE HOUSE JUST
$750 ACCORDING TO THE "NEW YORK
TIMES."
THAT SAME YEAR BIDEN PAID MORE
THAN 121 TIMES THAT, $91,000.
IN DEBATES FOUR YEARS AGO WITH
HILLARY CLINTON SHE WARNED TRUMP
PAYS ZERO DOLLARS IN FEDERAL
TAXES.
HE HAS PAID ZERO.
THAT MEANS ZERO FOR TROOPS.
ZERO FOR VETS.
ZERO FOR SCHOOLS.
>> Reporter: BUT TONIGHT BIDEN
WALKS OUT ON TO THE DEBATE STAGE
ARMED WITH WHAT THE PRESIDENT
DID PAY.
$750.
AND IN 11 OF 18 YEARS HE PAID
NOTHING ACCORDING TO "THE
TIMES."
THE PRESIDENT HAS LONG CAST
HIMSELF AS A WILDLY SUCCESSFUL
BUSINESSMAN.

BUT IN A NEW REPORT "THE TIMES"
SAYS, QUOTE, IT WAS ALL A HOAX.
REPORTING WHEN THE SHOW "THE
APPRENTICE" DEBUTED IN 2004 HE
HAD ALMOST $90 MILLION IN LOSSES
FROM HIS CORE BUSINESSES.
AND "THE TIMES" REPORTS HE OWES
DEBTS OF MORE THAN $421 MILLION
THAT COULD COME DUE DURING A
SECOND TRUMP TERM IN THE WHITE
HOUSE.
NOW THE QUESTION, WHO DOES HE
OWE THAT MONEY TO?
>> DO YOU OWE ANYBODY MONEY WHO
IS IMPACTED BY ANY DECISION YOU
MAKE AS PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED
STATES?
WE NEED TO KNOW THAT.
>> TODAY THE BIDEN CAMPAIGN WITH
THIS BLUNT STATEMENT TO MR.
TRUMP.
MR. PRESIDENT RELEASE YOUR TAX
RETURNS.
>> HE DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO DEBATE
THE FACTS.
HE IS NO THE THAT SMART.
>> BIDEN IS BRACING FOR TRUMP TO
GO PERSONAL SAYING REPORTERS HE
WON'T TAKE THE BAIT TELLING
DAVID IN THAT EXCLUSIVE JOINT
INTERVIEW HE IS READY FOR THE
PRESIDENT'S ATTACKS.
>> I WANT TO TURN TO THE
BLISTERING ATTACKS WE'VE SEEN
FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP JUST THIS
WEEK ALONE ON YOUR MENTAL
FITNESS WHETHER YOU ARE UP FOR
THE JOB.
HIS CAMPAIGN HAS CALLED YOU
DIMINISHED.
I'M CURIOUS HOW YOU'D RESPOND TO
THAT.
>> WATCH ME.
MR. PRESIDENT, WATCH ME.
>> Reporter: THIS WILL BE
BIDEN'S 27th DEBATE FOR THE
WHITE HOUSE.
>> HE'S BEEN DOING THIS 47 YEARS
AND I'VE JUST STARTED.
>> Reporter: THE PRESIDENT TAKES
THE STAGE DOWN IN THE POLLS BUT
IS HOPING HIS NEW PICK FOR THE
SUPREME COURT WILL ENERGIZE HIS
BASE.
JUDGE AMY CONEY BARRETT TODAY
MAKING HER FIRST VISIT TO
CAPITOL HILL.
TRUMP IS EAGER TO GET HER
CONFIRMED BY ELECTION DAY.
SHE COULD BE A DECIDING VOICE IF
THE ELECTION RESULTS ARE
CONTESTED.
BIDEN IS EXPECTED TO HIT ON WHAT
IS AT STAKE WITH THE SUPREME
COURT PICK ESPECIALLY HEALTH
CARE WITH THE COURT SET TO TAKE
UP A CASE THAT COULD INVALIDATE
OBAMA CARE THE WEEK AFTER THE
ELECTION.
PROTECTIONS FOR PRE-EXISTING
CONDITIONS FOR MILLIONS OF
AMERICANS ON THE LINE.
>> THIS IS ABOUT PEOPLE'S HEALTH
CARE IN THE MIDDLE OF A
PANDEMIC.
>> Reporter: AND THERE IS THE
VIRUS.
MORE THAN 200,000 AMERICANS HAVE
DIED IN THIS PANDEMIC.
FOR MONTHS THE PRESIDENT HAS
BEEN PROMISING HIS OWN HEALTH
CARE PLAN TO REPLACE OBAMA CARE
IS COMING.
IN THE ABC NEWS TOWN HALL HE WAS
PRESSED WHERE IS IT?
>> I HAVE IT ALL READY AND IT IS
A MUCH BETTER PLAN FOR YOU.
>> Reporter: IT STILL HASN'T
COME.
AND FOR HIS PART BIDEN SAYS
THERE IS ONLY ONE THING HE CAN
DO TO COUNTER THE PRESIDENT
TONIGHT.
>> WHAT DO YOU —
>> JUST TELL THE TRUTH.
>> HONESTY IS ALWAYS THE BEST
POLICY.
MARY BRUCE JOINS US NOW.
WE DID HEAR THE VICE PRESIDENT
THIS WEEK DIRECTLY CALL THE
PRESIDENT A LIAR.
HOW IS BIDEN PLANNING ON
HANDLING WHETHER TO FACT CHECK
THE PRESIDENT IN REAL TIME ON
THAT DEBATE STAGE?
>> Reporter: IT IS CLEAR THE
GLOVES ARE ALREADY OFF BUT JOE
BIDEN'S TEAM TODAY MADE IT VERY
CLEAR, THEY SAID IT IS NOT THE
FORMER VICE PRESIDENT'S JOB ON
THE DEBATE STAGE HERE TONIGHT TO
FACT CHECK THE PRESIDENT.
I THINK THAT IS BECAUSE THEY
THINK IT WOULD DERAIL HIM AS HE
TRIES TO FOCUS ON THE SUBSTANCE
HERE.
SO INSTEAD, WE ARE ASSURED THE
PRESIDENT, THE VICE PRESIDENT
INSTEAD OF CONSTANTLY TRYING TO
FACT CHECK THE PRESIDENT IS
INSTEAD GOING TO BE FOCUSED ON
HIS MESSAGE TO THE AMERICAN
PEOPLE TRYING TO HAMMER HOME ON
THE ISSUES THAT HE THINKS MATTER
MOST TO VOTERS.
>> MARY, THE CAMPAIGNS HAVE BEEN
ENGAGING BACK AND FORTH ALL WEEK
ON SETTING EXPECTATIONS FOR
TONIGHT.
WHAT IS THE LATEST FROM THE
BIDEN CAMPAIGN ON HOW HE IS
PREPARING FOR TONIGHT'S FACE-OFF
AND WHAT HE'LL FOCUS ON MOST?
>> WHAT WE JUST HEARD FROM THE
CAMPAIGN, THEY SAY HE IS READY
TO GO AND READY FOR ANYTHING.
HE DOES WANT TO FOCUS MOST ON
THE ISSUES DESPITE THE FACT THAT
THEY KNOW THE PRESIDENT IS GOING
TO TRY AND MAKE THIS PERSONAL.
THEY EXPECT THE PRESIDENT TO TRY
AND DRAG JOE BIDEN DOWN INTO THE
MUD A LITTLE BIT.
THE CHALLENGE FOR JOE BIDEN IS
GOING TO BE TO TRY AND RISE
ABOVE THAT.
INSTEAD HE WANTS TO FOCUS ON
HEALTH CARE.
OF COURSE HE WANTS TO TALK ABOUT
THE PRESIDENT'S TAXES WHICH IS
EXPECTED TO BE THE FIRST
QUESTION TO THE PRESIDENT AND OF
COURSE THE PANDEMIC.
HE WANTS TO TALK ABOUT HIS, IN
THE CONTEXT OF HIS HEALTH CARE
PLAN.
JOE BIDEN HAS BEEN INTENSELY
PREPARING FOR THIS UNLIKE THE
PRESIDENT WHO HAS BEEN OUT
CAMPAIGNING FURIOUSLY.
BIDEN NOW READY TO GO A COUPLE
HOURS AWAY.
>> OKAY.
THANKS SO MUCH.
>>> AND LET'S TURN NOW TO ABC
NEWS CHIEF WHITE HOUSE
CORRESPONDENT JONATHAN KARL.
ALSO IN CLEVELAND AHEAD OF
TONIGHT'S DEBATE.
JOHN, THE PRESIDENT'S CAMPAIGN
HAS HAD MIXED MESSAGING ON WHAT
TO EXPECT FROM JOE BIDEN
TONIGHT.
ANY CONCERN IN THE WHITE HOUSE
AT ALL THAT THEY'VE LOWERED
EXPECTATIONS FOR BIDEN BY
ATTACKING HIS AGE AND MENTAL
FITNESS FOR MONTHS?
>> Reporter: THERE IS CERTAINLY
A LOT OF CONSTERNATION AMONG
REPUBLICANS BEYOND THE WHITE
HOUSE WONDERING WHY THEY'VE BEEN
DOING THIS.
I MEAN, YOU KNOW, YOU AND I HAVE
BEEN THROUGH A LOT OF DEBATES.
YOU USUALLY TRY TO TALK ABOUT
WHAT A TREMENDOUS DEBATER YOUR
OPPONENT IS SO YOU CAN GO IN AND
SAY YOU EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS
AND FOR MONTHS DONALD TRUMP HAS
DONE THE OPPOSITE MAKING IT
SOUND LIKE JOE BIDEN IS SOMEONE
WHO CAN BARELY STRING TOGETHER A
COUPLE SENTENCES SO THEY'VE SET
THE EXPECTATIONS VERY LOW AND I
THINK THERE IS SOME REALIZATION
THAT IS NOT NECESSARILY A GOOD
THING SO NOW YOU START HEARING
FROM THE TRUMP CAMPAIGN AND EVEN
A LITTLE BIT FROM DONALD TRUMP
HIMSELF ABOUT HOW MANY DEBATES
JOE BIDEN HAS DONE OVER THE
YEARS, ABOUT HOW EXPERIENCED HE
IS, HOW MUCH MORE EXPERIENCED HE
IS AT THIS THAN DONALD TRUMP.
THEY ARE TRYING TO RESET THE
EXPECTATIONS A LITTLE BIT BUT IT
IS HARD WHEN FOR MONTHS AND
MONTHS YOU'VE BEEN PORTRAYING
JOE BIDEN AS SOMEONE WHO IS
SIMPLY OUT OF IT.
>> THE PRESIDENT SAID THIS WEEK
HE HAS DONE SOME PREPARATION FOR
THE DEBATES BUT IS OTHERWISE
BUSY RUNNING THE COUNTRY.
WHAT DO WE KNOW ABOUT HOW
PREPARED HE IS AND HOW MUCH HE
PLANS TO GO ON THE ATTACK.
>> Reporter: HE DIDN'T DO A LOT
OF PREPARATION FOUR YEARS AGO
AND HAS PROBABLY DONE LESS THIS
TIME IN TERMS OF FORMAL DEBATE
PREPARATIONS.
HE HAS BROUGHT IN PEOPLE LIKE
CHRIS CHRISTIE AND RUDY GUILIANI
TO HELP HIM OUT.
HE'S GOT HIS CAMPAIGN FOLKS.
THEY DO DO THESE SESSIONS.
THEY DID ONE AS RECENTLY, THEY
DID ONE SUNDAY RIGHT IN THE OVAL
OFFICE.
BUT THEN HE WENT OUT AND DID
WHAT HE CONSIDERS HIS REAL
DEBATE PREPARATION, AND THAT IS
THE PRESS CONFERENCES THAT HE
HAS IN THE BRIEFING ROOM.
SO ONE TOP TRUMP ADVISER SAID TO
ME HE DOES DEBATE PREP EVERY
TIME HE WALKS INTO THAT BRIEFING
ROOM AND FACES YOU PEOPLE.
THAT IS DEBATE PREP.
BUT OF COURSE DEBATE IS VERY
DIFFERENT THAN A PRESS
CONFERENCE.
WE'LL SEE HOW THAT PLAYS OUT.
YOU KNOW, TRUMP IS SOMEBODY WHO
GOES BY GUT INSTINCT.
HE IS AN INSTINCTUAL FIGHTER.
HE HAS A PHRASE HE USED TO USE A
LONG TIME AGO, SAYING THE BEST
PRIZE FIGHTERS, YOU KNOW, DON'T
GO IN THERE WITH A PLAN.
YOU GOT TO ROLL WITH THE
PUNCHES.
YOU GOT TO GO WITH THE PUNCHES.
I SUSPECT ULTIMATELY HE'LL BE
GOING WITH THE PUNCHES AND HE'LL
BE THROWING MOST OF THEM.
I THINK HE WILL BE AGGRESSIVELY
AND RELENTLESSLY NEGATIVE
TONIGHT GOING AFTER JOE BIDEN IN
VERY PERSONAL WAYS.
>> LOTS OF PEOPLE ANTICIPATING
THE ACTION THERE TONIGHT.
THANKS SO MUCH.
AND FOR MORE ON TONIGHT'S DEBATE
LET'S BRING IN ABC NEWS
POLITICAL ANALYST MATTHEW DOWD.
MATT, CERTAINLY A BIG NIGHT
TONIGHT.
SO LET'S BREAK THIS DOWN ON BOTH
SIDES.
WHAT DO YOU SEE AS THE MOST
IMPORTANT THING JOE BIDEN NEEDS
TO ACCOMPLISH TONIGHT AND WHAT
DOES PRESIDENT TRUMP NEED TO DO
TO HAVE A STRONG SHOWING?
>> WELL, IT IS A BIG NIGHT.
PROBABLY GOING TO BE THE MOST
WATCHED EVENT OF THE WHOLE
CYCLE.
UPWARDS OF 07 OR 80 MILLION OR
MORE IN THIS.
I THINK JOE BIDEN HAS TO COME
ACROSS AS CALM, COOL, COLLECTED,
AND THOUGHTFUL.
PRESENT HIS CASE ABOUT WHY HE
WANTS TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE
UNITED STATES.
PROSECUTE THE CASE AGAINST
PRESIDENT TRUMP ABOUT WHAT HE'S
DONE OVER THE LAST FOUR YEARS
AND WHY HE THINKS IT'S BEEN NOT
GOOD FOR THE AMERICAN PUBLIC.
SO I THINK HE HAS TO BE CLEAR,
CONCISE, AND THERE MAY BE A
MOMENT HE HAS TO COME BACK AND
PUSH BACK STRONG AGAINST AN
ATTACK FROM DONALD TRUMP, BUT HE
SHOULD DO THAT LIMITED.
DONALD TRUMP ON THE OTHER HAND,
I THINK, SHOULD STAY AWAY FROM A
CONSTANT ATTACK ON JOE BIDEN.
HE PROBABLY WON'T — CAN'T HELP
HIMSELF.
HE PROBABLY WILL.
BUT THE BEST THING FOR DONALD
TRUMP IS TO PRESENT THE REASON
WHY HIS PRESIDENCY HAS BEEN GOOD
FOR THE AMERICAN PUBLIC.
PRESENTED IN A WAY THAT REBEL
TAREBEL
— REHABILITATES HIS IMAGE
BECAUSE THAT IS WHAT IS HOLDING
HIM BACK RIGHT NOW.
IT IS NOT THE PERCEPTION OF JOE
BIDEN BUT OF DONALD TRUMP.
>> ABOUT 14% OF AMERICANS STILL
IDENTIFY THEMSELVES AS UNDECIDED
VOTERS BUT SO MANY HAVE ALREADY
MADE UP THEIR MINDS ABOUT THE
CANDIDATES.
WHO IS THE REAL TARGET AUDIENCE
TONIGHT AND CAN THIS DEBATE
REALLY CHANGE MUCH?
>> TO ME WHEN I LOOK AT THIS
DEBATE THERE IS A SMALL SEGMENT
OF THE COUNTRY THAT IS
UNDECIDED.
IT IS REALLY TINY.
TRUE, UNDECIDED VOTERS.
THERE ARE A LOT THAT LEAN.
AND THEN THERE ARE THE VOTERS
THAT ARE WITH JOE BIDEN THAT
DONALD TRUMP HAS TO MOVE TO HIM.
RIGHT NOW DONALD TRUMP COMES
INTO THIS BY ALL ACCOUNTS SEVEN
OR EIGHT POINTS BEHIND
NATIONALLY IN EVERY KEY TARGET
STATE IN THE ELECTORAL COLLEGE,
SO DONALD TRUMP HAS TO MOVE
THOSE VOTERS.
JOE BIDEN HAS TO REASSURE HIS
VOTERS THAT ARE WITH HIM ALREADY
AND TRY TO SPEAK TO SOME OF THE
SMALL SEGMENT OF UNDECIDED
VOTERS.
I THINK DEBATES ARE THE LAST
THING THAT CAN REALLY MOVE IN
THIS RACE.
THIS DEBATE AND THE ONES THAT
FOLLOW.
THEY MOVED THE RACE IN 2016.
HILLARY CLINTON CAME INTO THE
FIRST DEBATE TWO POINTS UP AND
LEFT FIVE POINTS UP.
THE RACE ENDED UP TO BE A
TWO-POINT RACE.
SO THAT IS THE GROUP OF VOTERS.
BOTH SHOULD BE TARGETING THE
SAME GROUP.
UNDECIDEDS AND SOFT BIDEN VOTERS
BECAUSE DONALD TRUMP HAS TO MOVE
VOTERS AWAY FROM JOE BIDEN IN
ORDER TO WIN.
>> KIND OF WANT TO PIGGYBACK OFF
THAT POINT YOU JUST MADE.
AS YOU SAID MOST ANALYSTS
THOUGHT HILLARY CLINTON WON THE
DEBATES IN 2016 BUT SHE STILL
ENDED UP LOSING THE RACE.
IS THERE A DIFFERENCE THIS YEAR
COMPARED TO 2016 AS FAR AS THE
POTENTIAL IMPACT THIS DEBATE
COULD HAVE?
>> THERE IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE.
THERE IS A DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A
RACE THAT IS AN OPEN RACE AND
BECOMES A CHOICE ELECTION.
THAT'S WHAT 2016 WAS, THAT YOU
HAD TO DECIDE BETWEEN THE TWO OF
THEM.
THIS RACE IS MORE REFERENDUM
ELECTION, MORE REFERENDUM ON THE
PRESIDENT.
THE OTHER BIG DIFFERENCE IS THAT
THERE IS REALLY NO SIGNIFICANT
THIRD PARTY PLAYERS IN THIS
RAILS.
AS THERE WAS LAST TIME.
5% OR 6% OF THE VOTE ON ELECTION
DATE WENT TO SOMEBODY ELSE OTHER
THAN DONALD TRUMP OR HILLARY
CLINTON.
SO THAT IS A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN
THIS RACE.
I THINK THE DEBATE REALLY
MATTERS IN THAT CONTEXT BECAUSE
IT BECOMES A REFERENDUM ON
DONALD TRUMP AND VOTERS WANT TO
DECIDE, OKAY.
WE'VE DECIDED THE COUNTRY ISN'T
HEADED IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION.
DO WE WANT TO REPLACE DONALD
TRUMP WITH JOE BIDEN AND THAT IS
A BIG DIFFERENCE FROM 2016.
A MAJOR DIFFERENCE IN A
REFERENDUM ELECTION AND A CHOICE
ELECTION WHICH IS WHAT THIS YEAR
IS.
THIS YEAR IS A REFERENDUM ON THE
LAST FOUR YEARS.
>> MATT DOWD, THANKS SO MUCH.
WE'LL BE TALKING TO YOU LATER ON
TONIGHT.
>> SOUNDS GREAT, LINSEY.
THANK YOU.
>>> AGAIN, THAT CRUCIAL FIRST
DEBATE JUST AHEAD.
STAY TUNED RIGHT HERE ON ABC
NEWS LIVE FOR A SPECIAL EDITION
OF "20/20" AT 8:00 P.M. EASTERN
FOLLOWED BY THE DEBATE AT 9:00
P.M.
NOW TO THE WILDFIRES RAGING OUT
OF CONTROL IN CALIFORNIA.
AT LEAST THREE DEAD AS 27 MAJOR
WILDFIRES BURN TONIGHT.
MORE THAN 70,000 PEOPLE FORCED
FROM THEIR HOMES.
HUNDREDS OF STRUCTURES HAVE
ALREADY BEEN LOST.
AND THE GLASS FIRE IS
DEVASTATING WINE COUNTRY,
DESTROYING ONE OF NAPA VALLEY'S
STORIED RESTAURANTS.
>> Reporter: TONIGHT NEW VIDEO
SHOWING THE EXPLOSIVE CONDITIONS
ON THE FRONT LINES OF THE GLASS
FIRE.
A SHERIFF'S LIEUTENANT USING A
GARDEN HOSE TO STOP THIS HOME
FROM CATCHING FIRE.
FLAMES NOW RACING THROUGH AREAS
THAT HAVEN'T BURNED IN MORE THAN
A CENTURY.
THIS IS THE KIND OF TERRAIN
THEY'RE DEALING WITH.
WHAT THEY'RE DOING IS SAYING
THEY'RE BLACKENING THE LINE,
CREATING A DEFENSIVE SPACE
BETWEEN THE FIRE AND A HOME THAT
IS JUST ABOUT 25 YARDS THIS WAY.
THE FIRE FORCING THE ENTIRE TOWN
OF CALISTOGA TO EVACUATE
OVERNIGHT.
>> WE MOVED UP HERE ABOUT FOUR
YEARS AGO.
SINCE 2017 EVERY YEAR HORRIBLE
FIRES.
>> Reporter: AT LEAST 80 HOMES
DESTROYED IN NAPA AND SONOMA
COUNTIES.
ICONIC WINE COUNTRY DESTINATIONS
NOT SPARED EITHER.
MULTIPLE WINERIES DAMAGED OR
DESTROYED.
NORTH OF HERE IN SHASTA COUNTY
THE ZOG FIRE CHEWING THROUGH
MORE THAN 60 SQUARE MILES
CLAIMING AT LEAST THREE LIVES.
LINSEY, YOU CAN SEE BEHIND ME A
HELICOPTER HERE WITH HUNDREDS OF
GALLONS OF WATER READY TO DROP
AND THESE ARE DOZERS COMING UP
TO HELP PROTECT THIS VINEYARD.
THIS IS ALL TO HELP THESE
FIREFIGHTERS WHO HAVE BEEN ON
THE FRONT LINES FOR MONTHS.
THIS IS THE WORST FIRE SEASON
WE'VE SEEN IN A CENTURY AND IN
SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA WE HAVEN'T
EVEN SEEN THE WORST FIRE WEATHER
YET.
LINSEY?
>> ALL RIGHT.
STAY SAFE ONCE AGAIN.
NEXT TO THE PANDEMIC MORE THAN 1
MILLION LIVES LOST WORLDWIDE.
ONE-FIFTH OF THEM RIGHT HERE IN
THE U.S.
TO PUT INTO PERSPECTIVE THE
EXTRAORDINARY TIME WE ARE LIVING
IN, TAKE A LOOK AT THIS GRAPH OF
OTHER RECENT VIRAL PANDEMICS OR
OUTBREAKS AND THE DEATHS THEY
CAUSED, FROM SWINE FLU TO MERS
TO EBOLA ALL PALE IN COMPARISON
TO COVID-19 AND THE CASES
CONTINUE TO RISE AS DO THE
CONCERNS ABOUT THE IMPACT AND
THREAT FACING CHILDREN IN
SCHOOLS.
EVA PILGRIM HAS MORE ROUPT JUST
AS NEW YORK CITY ELEMENTARY
SCHOOL STUDENTS WENT BACK TO THE
CLASSROOM SCHOOLS ALREADY AT
RISK OF CLOSING.
THE CITY REPORTING ITS COVID
POSITIVITY RATE TICKING UP ABOUT
3% FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE JUNE
NEW CLUSTERS TRACED TO NINE ZIP
CODES.
>> IF THE SCHOOLS ARE NOT SAFE I
AM NOT GOING TO ALLOW THEM TO
OPERATE.
PERIOD.
>> Reporter: THE CITY READY TO
CLOSE SCHOOLS AS EARLY AS NEXT
WEEK IF THE NUMBER STAYS ABOVE
3%.
THE POTENTIAL SETBACK COMING AS
COVID CASES IN CHILDREN HAVE
RISEN FROM 2% TO 10% NATIONWIDE
OVER THE LAST FIVE MONTHS.
ONE OF THOSE CASES 12-YEAR-OLD
ELIZABETH McNEW FROM FLORIDA WHO
PASSED AWAY AFTER A TEN-DAY
BATTLE WITH THE VIRUS.
>> ELIZABETH CAME TO ME AND
SAID, I'M NOT BREATHING RIGHT,
MOMMY.
>> Reporter: TONIGHT A NEW
REPORT FROM THE "NEW YORK TIMES"
SAYS OVER THE SUMMER WHITE HOUSE
OFFICIALS TRIED TO PRESSURE THE
CDC TO PLAY DOWN THE RISKS OF
SENDING CHILDREN BACK TO SCHOOL.
OLIVIA TROYE A FORMER AIDE TO
THE VICE PRESIDENT SAT IN ON
TASK FORCE MEETINGS.
>> IT WAS PEOPLE WITHIN THE
WHITE HOUSE SPECIFICALLY TASKING
MORE JUNIOR LEVEL STAFF TO TRY
TO FIND ALTERNATE DATA.
DATA THAT FIT THE NARRATIVE THEY
WANTED, WHICH WAS IT ONLY
AFFECTS, YOU KNOW, PEOPLE ABOVE
THE AGE OF 75 AND IT DOESN'T
AFFECT YOUNGER SCHOOL CHILDREN.
IT WAS ALL PART OF THE NARRATIVE
OF, WE NEED TO OPEN UP THESE
SCHOOLS.
>> FOR MORE NOW, LET'S BRING IN
EVA PILGRIM.
HAS THE WHITE HOUSE RESPONDED TO
THE ALLEGATIONS THEIR OFFICIALS
PRESSURED THE CDC TO PLAY DOWN
COVID RISKS FOR SCHOOL CHILDREN?
>> Reporter: YES, LINSEY, THE
WHITE HOUSE IS PUSHING BACK ON
THAT "NEW YORK TIMES" REPORTING
SAYING THAT THE TASK FORCE
BRINGS TOGETHER EXPERTS WITH
DIFFERENT EXPERTISE AND VIEWS
AND THEY WENT ON TO TELL US
FURTHER THAT THE PRESIDENT TAKES
IN ALL OF THOSE OPINIONS BEFORE
THEY MAKE A DECISION AND BEFORE
THEY MAKE POLICY DECISIONS
SPECIFICALLY.
>> WE ALSO LEARNED TODAY THAT
OXFORD UNIVERSITY, THEY'RE NOT
PLANNING ON RECRUITING CHILDREN
FOR THEIR VACCINE TRIAL AT LEAST
AT THIS TIME.
>> AT THIS TIME, LINSEY, THEY'RE
FOCUSING ON ADULTS.
THAT IS BECAUSE OF HOW THIS
VIRUS AFFECTS BOTH CHILDREN AND
ADULTS.
CHILDREN ARE LESS LIKELY TO HAVE
SEVERE SYMPTOMS FROM THE VIRUS
SO THEY ARE FOCUSING THIS
VACCINE ON ADULTS AND HOW ADULTS
REACT TO THE VACCINE.
>> EVA PILGRIM, THANKS SO MUCH.
>>> AFTER SIX RELENTING MONTHS
ON THE FRONT LINES AS YOU CAN
IMAGINE MANY ESSENTIAL WORKERS
ARE SIMPLY FACING BURN OUT.
EVERY DAY MONTH AFTER MONTH SO
MANY SHOWING UP FOR WORK AND
SADLY MANY STILL WITHOUT THE
PROTECTION THAT THEY NEED TO
KEEP THEM SAFE.
MANY DISPROPORTIONATELY PEOPLE
OF COLOR.
>> Reporter: TONIGHT DESPITE 32
STATES REPORTING AN INCREASE IN
CORONAVIRUS CASES AMERICA'S
ESSENTIAL WORKERS HAVEN'T
STOPPED.
WORKING AROUND THE CLOCK.
>> THIS IS MY DAILY NORMAL.
>> Reporter: HOPING THEY DON'T
GET SICK.
FROM GROCERY STORE WORKERS LIKE
JEFFREY REED IN MARYLAND.
>> THE HAZARDOUS DEAL HERE IS
STILL OUT THERE.
EVERY DAY YOU SEE THAT, YOU
KNOW, PEOPLE ARE DYING.
>> Reporter: TO FRONT LINE
HEALTH CARE WORKER PAULO HUDSON
IN TENNESSEE.
>> IT IS A SCARY THING.
IS TODAY GOING TO BE THE DAY
THAT I GET COVID?
>> Reporter: AND THIS CALIFORNIA
FARMER.
IN APRIL SHE AND HER CREW FELT
FEARFUL EVERY DAY.
TODAY NEARLY SIX MONTHS LATER
SHE TOLD US THEY'VE JUST GROWN
ACCUSTOMED TO THE ANXIETY AND
ARE WORKING HARDER THAN EVER.
IN A RECENT SURVEY 58% OF U.S.
WORKERS FEEL BURN OUT FROM WORK.
MORE THAN 1 IN 3 OF THOSE
WORKERS POINT TO CIRCUMSTANCES
TIED TO COVID-19 AS THE REASON
BEHIND THEIR STRESS AND
EXHAUSTION.
>> THE THREE BIGGEST DRIVERS
WERE WORK LOAD, WORK/LIFE
BALANCE, AND LACK OF
COMMUNICATION AND SUPPORT.
THE LEVEL OF BURN OUT IS HIGHLY
PROBLEMATIC.
>> Reporter: FOR THE ESSENTIAL
WORK FORCE WHERE PEOPLE OF COLOR
MADE UP 43% OF EMPLOYEES AT THE
START OF THE PANDEMIC, THEY ALSO
MAY HAVE FACED AND STILL MAY
FACE INCREASED EXPOSURE TO
COVID-19 WITHOUT ADEQUATE PPE,
WORKING WITHOUT HAZARD PAY, OR
BEING UNDER PAID.
>> PEOPLE OF COLOR HAVE A
REALLY — REALLY PLAYED A
CRUCIAL ROLE IN KEEPING THE
ECONOMY GOING.
>> Reporter: EXPERTS SAY AS
ECONOMIC RECOVERY HAS BEGUN SOME
COMMUNITIES HAVE BEEN LEFT
BEHIND.
>> THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED.
THAT RESTAURANT IS CLOSED.
>> Reporter: WHEN NEW YORK CITY
SHUT DOWN THIS BUTCHER SHOP IN
CHINA TOWN CLOSED FOR MONTHS IN
A NEIGHBORHOOD ALREADY DEALING
WITH THE STIGMA OF THE PANDEMIC.
THEY ADVERTISED ELSEWHERE
ADVERTISING LOW PRICES BUT HE
SAYS FOR EVERY BUSINESS IT IS A
FIGHT FOR SURVIVAL.
>> EACH ONE OF THESE IS JUST
KIND OF LIKE, YOU KNOW,
SOMEONE'S AMERICAN DREAM.
SOMEONE'S STRUGGLE.
SOMEONE'S FUTURE FALLING THROUGH
THE CRACKS.
>> Reporter: WE'VE LEARNED TALKS
RESUMED TODAY BETWEEN DEMOCRATS
AND THE WHITE HOUSE ON A WORK
FORCE STIMULUS PACKAGE THAT
WOULD OF COURSE INCLUDE
ESSENTIAL WORKERS.
HOWEVER, THEY'RE FAR FROM A
DEAL.
LINSEY?
>> THANKS SO MUCH.
>>> WHEN WE COME BACK THE
DRAMATIC SURVEILLANCE VIDEO

LAPD OFFICER INSIDE A POLICE

HOW THE SITUATION WAS ULTIMATELY
BROUGHT UNDER CONTROL.

LIKE HERE IN NEW YORK, AT SOME
POINT YOU MAY HAVE HAPPENED WHAT
IS GOING TO HAPPEN WHEN IT GETS
COLD OUTSIDE?
IT IS ONE THING TO LIMIT INDOOR
DINING BUT ANOTHER TO EAT OUT IN
FRIGID TEMPERATURES.
WE SET OUT TO SEE THE PLANS
ACROSS THE COUNTRY AS SO MANY
RESTAURANTS PREPARE FOR WHAT
WILL LIKELY BE ANOTHER
CHALLENGING TIME IN THE
RESTAURANT INDUSTRY.
>> Reporter: THE PANDEMIC AT
TIMES HAS LEFT US WITH MORE
QUESTIONS THAN ANSWERS.
ONE THING WE DO KNOW.
THE CHANGE OF SEASONS NORMALLY
LOOKS LIKE THCHLT BUT TO SO MANY
IN THE RESTAURANT INDUSTRY, IT
FEELS LIKE WINTER IS COMING ALL
TOO FAST.
RESTRICTIONS ON INDOOR DINING
HAVE FORCED MANY RESTAURANTS TO
CONVERT SIDEWALKS, PARKING LOTS
INTO OUTDOOR DINING SPACE
BECOMING A LIFE LINE FOR THE
STRUGGLING EATERIES.
>> IT WOULD HAVE BEEN IMPOSSIBLE
LITERALLY.
IF WE DIDN'T HAVE A BIG OUTDOOR
SPACE WE MIGHT HAVE BEEN CLOSED
ALREADY.
>> Reporter: AS TEMPERATURES
DROP FOR MANY THE CHARM OF AL
FRESCO DINING IS DWINDLING.
ACCORDING TO YELP'S SEPTEMBER
ECONOMIC IMPACT REPORT MORE THAN
32,000 RESTAURANTS HAVE CLOSED
THEIR DOORS SINCE THE PANDEMIC
BEGAN 61% OF THEM PERMANENTLY.
THAT IS IN ADDITION TO THE MORE
THAN 6,000 BARS THAT HAVE
ALREADY CLOSED.
SEAN KENNEDY FROM THE NATIONAL
RESTAURANT ASSOCIATION FEARS
WITHOUT THE HELP OF THE FEDERAL
GOVERNMENT MANY MORE WON'T MAKE
IT THROUGH THE WINTER.
>> THIS PANDEMIC REPRESENTS THE
BIGGEST CHALLENGE THEY'VE EVER
SEEN.
WE'RE MOVING INTO THE FALL AND
WINTER.
THERE ARE NOT A LOT OF OPTIONS
AVAILABLE.
RIGHT NOW ROUGHLY 100,000
RESTAURANTS ARE CLOSED AND THAT
IS BASED ON SUMMER WEATHER
PATTERNS.
IF THERE IS AN ACTION FROM
CONGRESS, IF THE WINTER COMES AS
WE THINK IT IS GOING TO, WITH
STRENGTH AND SEVERITY, A LOT OF
FOLKS ARE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE
TO FILL THEIR HOUSES AND A LOT
OF RESTAURANTS WILL HAVE TO
CLOSE FOR GOOD.
>> THE WARM SUMMER MONTHS AND
THE OPTION OF OUTDOOR DINING
HELPED SUSTAIN TENS OF THOUSANDS
OF RESTAURANTS BUT EVEN AS
INDOOR DINING SLOWLY MAKES A
COMEBACK WITH LIMITED CAPACITY
IN SPOTS ACROSS THE COUNTRY,
MANY RESTAURANTS ARE SAYING IT'S
JUST NOT ENOUGH.
>> FOR MOST RESTAURANTS TO MAKE
A PROFIT THEY NEED A FULL HOUSE
EVERY DAY OF THE WEEK.
THEY NEED TO HAVE SOMETHING
APPROACHING A HUNDRED PERCENT
CAPACITY JUST TO MAKE 5% OR 6%
PROFIT MARGIN AND KEEP THE DOORS
OPEN FOR MONTH.
WHEN THEY ARE AT 25% CAPACITY,
50%, EVEN 75%, THAT TAKES A HUGE
BITE OUT OF AN INDUSTRY THAT IS
BARELY SCRAPING BY EVEN ON A
GOOD DAY.
>> Reporter: SOME STATES LIKE
FLORIDA WHICH SURPASSED 700,000
COVID CASES SINCE THE START OF
THE PANDEMIC MOVING FORWARD WITH
FULLY REOPENING RESTAURANTS.
>> WHAT THAT WILL MEAN FOR THE
RESTAURANTS IS THERE WILL NOT BE
LIMITATIONS FROM THE STATE OF
FLORIDA.
>> Reporter: DOCTORS CAUTIONING
ABOUT THE POTENTIAL IMPACT OF
DINING INDOORS AT PROXIMITY.
>> WE KNOW FROM VARIOUS STUDIES
JUST BEING OUTDOORS REDUCES RISK
OF TRANSMISSION WHETHER WALKING
OR EXERCISING.
ANY TIME YOU ARE OUTSIDE IT IS
BETTER VENTILATION SO CREATES
LESS RISK FOR TRANSMISSION TO
HAPPEN FROM PERSON TO PERSON.
INDOOR DINING IS AN OPPORTUNITY
FOR A LOT OF PEOPLE TO BE IN THE
SAME PLACE IN OFTEN VERY POORLY
VENTILATED SPACES.
SO WITH THOSE INGREDIENTS YOU
HAVE A RECIPE FOR A GREAT DEAL
OF VIRUS TRANSMISSION.
>> Reporter: OTHER PLACES LIKE
NEW YORK HAVE BEEN MORE HESITANT
ABOUT REOPENING.
JUST LAST WEEK NEW YORK CITY
ANNOUNCING A RETURN FOR INDOOR
DINING SINCE THE PANDEMIC TOOK
HOLD OPENING SOON AT 25%
CAPACITY AND MAKING OUTDOOR
DINING PERMANENT.
IN THE MEANTIME THE CITY'S
ROUGHLY 25% RESTAURANTS HAVE
BEEN THINKING OUTSIDE THE BOX OR
BUBBLE TO STAY AFLOAT.
LIKE CAFE DU SOLEIL ON THE UPPER
WEST SIDE OF MANHATTAN PROVIDING
DINERS THEIR OWN PLASTIC PODS TO
KEEP COZY AND DISTANCE NO MATTER
THE WEATHER.
>> PEOPLE LOVE IT.
WHEN IT RAINS IT IS PROTECTED.
WHEN IT'S COLD.
WHEN IT'S WINDY.
IT IS LIKE A GREENHOUSE EFFECT.
PRETTY COOL.
>> Reporter: BUT ARE THE PODS
REALLY SAFER THAN INDOOR DINING?
>> THESE PODS ARE TO A CERTAIN
DEGREE SAFER BECAUSE THEY'RE
JUST ENCLOSING THE PEOPLE THAT
ARE DINING TOGETHER.
SO IT PROBABLY INCREASES THE
RISK OF TRANSMISSION BETWEEN,
WITHIN THAT PARTY, BUT IT SORT
OF REDUCES STILL THE
TRANSMISSION YOU MIGHT SEE
INDOORS WHERE YOU HAVE MULTIPLE
PEOPLE CONGREGATED TOGETHER.
THEY ARE NOT PERFECTLY SAFE AND
THEY NEED TO BE CLEANED SO THERE
IS A LOT OF WORK THAT NEEDS TO
BE DONE TO MAINTAIN THEM BUT
LIKELY THEY ARE INCREMENTALLY
SAFER THOUGH THERE IS NOT A LOT
OF RESEARCH AROUND THESE NEW
DEVICES.
>> Reporter: IN CHICAGO WHERE
RESTRICTIONS WERE ALSO JUST
LIFTED TO 25% INDOOR CAPACITY
RESTAURANT OWNERS HAVE
STRUGGLED.

WE'RE IN THE SURVIVE MODE.
>> Reporter: CHICAGO CITY

WORLDWIDE CONTEST SEEKING
CREATIVE SOLUTIONS TO MAKE

DAY CITIZENS POURED IN.
CHICAGO RECEIVED MORE THAN 600
SUBMISSIONS FROM 13 COUNTRIES IN
JUST A MATTER OF DAYS.
BUT SOME CHICAGO RESTAURANT
OWNERS SAY MOST OF THE IDEAS ARE
SIMPLY NOT FEASIBLE.
>> IT COSTS LITERALLY $10,000 TO
RENT ONE OF THOSE IGLOOS FOR
SEVEN OR EIGHT PEOPLE.
AND THAT DOESN'T INCLUDE
HEATING.
IT DOESN'T INCLUDE CHAIRS OR
DECOR.
>> IN CHICAGO I JUST DON'T THINK
OUTDOOR IS A SOLUTION FOR US.
IT'S NOT GOING TO BE ENJOYABLE
ENVIRONMENT FOR PEOPLE SITTING
AND DINING IN THAT.
I'M REALLY HOPING THE GOVERNMENT
WILL SEND A SECOND RUN OF PPE OR
JUST HELP US GO THROUGH THE
WINTER SEASON.

WAY TO SAVE THEIR BUSINESSES IS

AS WE HEAD INTO THE FIRST
PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE OF 2020 WE
TAKE A LOOK AT WHERE FORMER VICE
PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN AND
PRESIDENT TRUMP NOW STAND IN THE
POLLS BY THE NUMBERS.
AT THE MOMENT BIDEN HAS A 78%
CHANCE OF WINNING THE ELECTION
WHILE TRUMP HAS A 22% CHANCE OF
WINNING ACCORDING TO A
SIMULATION FORECAST BY OUR
PARTNERS AT 538.
NEITHER CANDIDATE IS EXPECTED TO
WIN BY A LANDSLIDE.
BIDEN'S CHANCE IS 28% WHILE
TRUMP'S IS LESS THAN 1%.
NATIONALLY BIDEN LEADS TRUMP 54%
TO 44% ACCORDING TO AN ABC
NEWS/"THE WASHINGTON POST" POLL
RELEASED ON SUNDAY AND THAT IS
MIRRORED IN THE CRUCIAL STATE OF
PENNSYLVANIA WHERE 8% OF VOTERS
WHO BACKED TRUMP IN 2016 SAY
THEY NOW SUPPORT BIDEN.
THAT COULD BE ENOUGH TO SWING A
STATE THAT TRUMP WON BY ONLY
44,290 VOTES OUT OF MORE THAN 6
MILLION VOTES CAST.
BIDEN HAS A COMMANDING 23-POINT
LEAD AMONG WOMEN AND AN 18-POINT
LEAD AMONG SUBURBAN WOMEN IN
PENNSYLVANIA AND IN THE SAME
STATE THE BIGGEST SHIFT IS AMONG
COLLEGE EDUCATED WHITE VOTERS
WHO IN 2016 SPLUT EVENLY FOR

NOW TO A MAJOR DEVELOPMENT IN

A KENTUCKY JUDGE HAS ORDERED THE

AND RECORDINGS TO THE COURT BY
NOON TOMORROW.
THIS COMES AFTER A JURY MEMBER
ACCUSED THE PROSECUTOR OF
MISREPRESENTING WHAT REALLY
HAPPENED IN THAT SECRET
PROCEEDING LEADING MANY TO ASK
WAS THE GRAND JURY ASKED TO
CONSIDER CHARGING THREE POLICE
OFFICERS FOR TAYLOR'S DEATH?
ABC'S ALEX PEREZ IS IN
LOUISVILLE AGAIN TONIGHT.

INTENSIFY TO FIND OUT WHY A
GRAND JURY DID NOT CHARGE
OFFICERS IN THE DEATH OF BREONNA
TAYLOR, TRANSCRIPTS COULD BE
MADE PUBLIC TOMORROW.
A JUDGE ORDERING MONDAY THE
RECORD OF THE SECRET
DELIBERATIONS BE FILED WITH THE
COURT.
THE JUDGE COULD THEN RELEASE
THEM.
THE STATE'S ATTORNEY GENERAL
DANIEL CAMERON PREVIOUSLY
REFUSING TO RELEASE THEM,
OVERNIGHT RELUCTANTLY REVERSING,
SAYING THE GRAND JURY IS MEANT
TO BE A SECRETIVE BODY, BUT IT
IS APPARENT THE PUBLIC INTEREST
IN THIS CASE IS NOT GOING TO
ALLOW THAT TO HAPPEN.

THOROUGH AND COMPLETE CASE.
THE ONE OFFICER THAT WAS CHARGED

JUDGE'S ORDER TO SUBMIT THOSE
DOCUMENTS, THE GRAND JURY
TRANSCRIPTS AND RECORDINGS TO
THE COURT BY NOON ON WEDNESDAY.
A THAT THE POINT, THEN, IT IS IN

WE WILL KNOW PRESUMABLY SOMETIME
AFTER THAT WHEN EXACTLY THE
PUBLIC MAY HAVE ACCESS TO THAT
INFORMATION.
LINSEY?
>> GIVE US A SENSE OF WHAT THE
KENTUCKY ATTORNEY GENERAL IS NOW
SAYING.
HE IS DEFENDING THE DECISION TO
NOT BRING CHARGES AGAINST TWO OF
THE OFFICERS AND CHARGE THE
THIRD, FORMER OFFICER WITH
ENDANGERING TAYLOR'S NEIGHBORS?
>> Reporter: THE ATTORNEY
GENERAL ON THE DAY HE ANNOUNCED
THE GRAND JURY DECISION AND IN
SUBSEQUENT INTERVIEWS HAS SAID
THE TWO OTHER OFFICERS WERE
JUSTIFIED IN FIRING THEIR
WEAPONS BECAUSE BREONNA TAYLOR'S
BOYFRIEND FIRED FIRST.
AND BECAUSE OF THAT THE ATTORNEY
GENERAL SAYS THE EVIDENCE HE
PRESENTED TO THE GRAND JURY HAD
TO DO WITH THE THIRD OFFICER,
HANKISON, THE ONE CHARGED WITH
WANTON ENDANGERMENT.
HE DID NOT PRESENT CHARGES OR A
CASE FOR THOSE OTHER OFFICERS.
LINSEY?

FOR YOUR REPORTING.

BIDEN AGREE ON ONE THING.
THEY SAY A CRITICAL AUDIENCE FOR

SUBURBAN WOMEN.
AS OUR COUNTRY'S RACIAL

MINDS WITH THIS KEY GROUP OF
VOTERS?
FOUR MONTHS AFTER THE DEATH OF
GEORGE FLOYD, WE WENT TO THE

REPUBLICANS.
HAVE YOU FELT COMFORTABLE LIVING

>> WELL, I LIVED IN MINNESOTA
FOR A LONG TIME SO PROXIMITY TO
WHITENESS IS SOMETHING YOU JUST
GET USED TO.
>> Reporter: AFTER THE DEATH OF
GEORGE FLOYD HER COMMUNITY WAS
GRIPPED BY PROTESTS FOR RACIAL
JUSTICE AND SCENES OF VIOLENCE
AND LOOTING JUST A FEW MILES
AWAY.
>> IT FELT LIKE THE ENERGY
AROUND IT WAS MORE DIFFICULT FOR
US THAN THE ACTUAL ACTIONS
THEMSELVES.
THOSE ACTIONS DID NOT
COLLECTIVELY SPREAD DOWN THIS
FAR THAT WAY.
>> EVERYBODY PUT THE FIST UP
RIGHT NOW!
>> Reporter: DID YOU GET THE
SENSE AT ALL THAT THE MOVEMENT
CHANGED ANY VIEWS ON THIS
REPUBLICAN BLOCK ESPECIALLY
GIVEN THE FACT THAT THEY KNOW
YOU?
>> THE NEXT DOOR PAGES WERE ON
FIRE, FACEBOOK WAS ON FIRE.
NEIGHBOR TO NEIGHBOR, PERSON TO
PERSON, I THINK WE ALL KNOW
PRETTY MUCH WHERE EVERYBODY
LANDS IN TERMS OF HOW THEY FEEL
ABOUT THINGS.

SCRAMBLED MINNESOTA POLITICS AND
INJECTED NEW UNCERTAINTY INTO

PROTESTS OUT HER WINDOW.
WEEKS LATER SHE MOVED FROM SOUTH
MINNEAPOLIS TO THE SUBURBS WHERE
SHE FELT SAFER AND AFTER YEARS
OF VOTING FOR DEMOCRATS, NOW
SAYS SHE IS VOTING FOR TRUMP.
>> I'VE LEANED TOWARD THE OTHER
SIDE BECAUSE I FEEL LIKE OUR
LEADERSHIP DID NOT STEP UP TO
THE PLATE HONESTLY.
I THINK THERE ARE SOME THINGS
DONALD TRUMP AND THE RED PARTY
NEED TO ADDRESS ON AND WORK ON
AS WELL BUT I FEEL WITH
EVERYTHING THAT HAPPENED THAT
THE BLUE PARTY —

A LITTLE WORSE.
>> LAWLESS CRIMINALS TERRORIZED
MINNEAPOLIS.

RED IN NOVEMBER.
AFTER LOSING BY JUST 45,000
VOTES FOUR YEARS AGO TRUMP IS
SPENDING MILLIONS ON TV ADS LIKE
THESE MEANT TO APPEAL TO VOTERS'
FEARS.
>> SO VOTERS WHO ARE CONCERNED
ABOUT RACIAL JUSTICE ARE MORE
LIKELY AND ENERGIZED TO VOTE
DEMOCRATIC AND VOTERS WHO ARE
CONCERNED ABOUT LAW AND ORDER
ARE REALLY LISTENING TO
PRESIDENT TRUMP'S MESSAGE ABOUT
THAT.
BUT I DON'T THINK EITHER OF
THESE TWO GROUPS WERE LIKELY TO
SWITCH THEIR VOTES.
>> Reporter: MAYBE IT DIDN'T
CHANGE A LOT OF MINDS.
>> RIGHT.

ENERGIZED PEOPLE.
>> THAT'S RIGHT.

EVEN RIGHT NOW DESPITE
EVERYTHING GOING ON IT'S CLIMATE

>> Reporter: REALLY.
MINNESOTA HASN'T BACKED A
REPUBLICAN FOR PRESIDENT SINCE
1972.
THE LONGEST RUNNING STREAK OF
ANY STATE IN THE COUNTRY.
BUT MANY ANALYSTS SAY CHANGING
DEMOGRAPHICS AND A SHIFTING
ECONOMY ON TOP OF RECENT RACIAL
UNREST HAVE PUT MINNESOTA'S 10
ELECTORAL VOTES IN PLAY.
>> I LIKE TO CONSIDER MYSELF A
LITTLE BIT RIGHT REPUBLICAN.
>> Reporter: THIS WORKING MOTHER

MOTIVATE HER CHOICE AND THE
PANDEMIC PUBLIC HEALTH
RESTRICTIONS AND IMPACT ON
BUSINESSES WORRY HER MORE THAN
THE VIRUS ITSELF.
>> RIGHT NOW I WOULD SAY MY
FOCUS IS MORE IMMEDIATE ON WHAT
THE ADMINISTRATION THAT I THINK
CAN BEST PULL US OUT OF THIS
CRISIS THE FASTEST.
>> Reporter: JOE BIDEN SAYS IT
IS A PATRIOTIC DUTY OF ALL
AMERICANS AT ALL TIMES TO WEAR
MASK.
DO YOU AGREE WITH THAT?
>> I DON'T AGREE WITH THAT.
I DON'T LIKE THIS BEING A
FEDERAL MANDATE.
I JUST DON'T BELIEVE THAT —
THIS IS AN ENORMOUS COUNTRY AND
I JUST DON'T BELIEVE THAT WHAT
IS RIGHT NECESSARILY OR
NECESSARY IN THE CITY OF NEW
YORK IS NECESSARILY NECESSARY IN
IOWA.
>> Reporter: THE BATTLE FOR

BOIL DOWN TO SUBURBAN WOMEN ON
THE MARGINS LIKE RETIRED
ACCOUNTANT AND CATHOLIC STEP
MOTHER OF THREE ANN SWENSON WHO
IS UNDECIDED.
WHAT IS MAKING IT SO HARD FOR
YOU?
>> I'M MOSTLY A FISCAL
CONSERVATIVE AND MORE OF A
SOCIAL MODERATE.
THERE ARE TWO THINGS ABOUT
DONALD TRUMP, FIRST BEING A
FISCAL CONSERVATIVE I'M NOT
EXCITED ABOUT WHAT'S HAPPENED
WITH THE BUDGET.
I FEEL THE DEFICIT SPENDING EVEN
WITHOUT THE COVID IS NOT
SOMETHING THAT I AM EXCITED
ABOUT.
THE OTHER IS THE RHETORIC.
AND THE CIVILITY.
WHEN DID BEING CIVIL TO PEOPLE
BE A SIGN OF WEAKNESS?
>> Reporter: SO WHY CAN'T YOU
VOTE FOR JOE BIDEN?
>> I CAN'T VOTE FOR JOE BIDEN
BECAUSE I DON'T WANT THE
COUNTRY — I DON'T WANT THE VICE
PRESIDENT HARRIS FOLLOWING.
I DON'T KNOW NECESSARILY THAT
JOE BIDEN WOULD MAKE FOUR YEARS.
AND IF HE DOESN'T MAKE FOUR
YEARS, THEN SHE IS IN
AUTOMATICALLY.
>> Reporter: TRUMP IS COUNTING
ON UNHAPPY VOTERS LIKE SWENSON
TO STAY HOME.
>> THE STRATEGY FOR DONALD TRUMP
IS HE PROBABLY CAN'T WIN THE
SUBURBAN WOMEN OVER.
BUT CAN HE GIVE THEM REASONS WHY
THEY SHOULDN'T VOTE FOR JOE
BIDEN AND IF HE CAN KEEP THEM
FROM TURNING OUT TO VOTE AND
LET'S SAY GET HIS BASE TO TURN
OUT AND AT AN EVEN HIGHER
PERCENTAGE THAN THEY DID FOUR
YEARS AGO, THAT IS THE RECIPE
FOR VICTORY HERE.
>> Reporter: MEANWHILE DEMOCRATS
ARE RALLYING FOR TURN OUT AS
VOTING GETS UNDER WAY AND FACING
LAGGING ENTHUSIASM FOR BIDEN.
>> TO BE HONEST I THINK A LOT OF
PEOPLE ARE GOING TO DO A LITTLE
HOLD THEIR NOSE AND VOTE.
AT THE END OF THE DAY WE HAVE A
CANDIDATE AND IF YOU HAVE A
CANDIDATE AND YOU ACTUALLY
BELIEVE IN THE THINGS YOU SAY
YOU BELIEVE IN YOU CANNOT OPT
OUT OF AN ELECTION.
YOU CANNOT COMPLAIN ABOUT YOUR

A LOOK BACK AT SOME OF THE SMALL
MOMENTS FROM PAST DEBATES THAT
MIGHT OFFER SOME LESSONS FOR
PRESIDENT TRUMP AND FORMER VICE
PRESIDENT BIDEN.
TWO PEOPLE WITH QUITE A FEW

UNIVERSITY AND CLEVELAND CLINIC
IN OHIO, AND NEW YORK CITY, NOW
REPORTING, CHIEF ANCHOR GEORGE
STEPHANOPOULOS.
>> GOOD EVENING AND WELCOME TO
OUR SPECIAL COVERAGE OF THE 2020
PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE.
THAT IS THE SCENE IN CLEVELAND,
OHIO, WHERE JUST ONE HOUR FROM
NOW DONALD TRUMP AND JOE BIDEN
WILL TAKE THE STAGE FOR THE
FIRST OF THREE 90-MINUTE DEBATES
BEFORE THE FINAL VOTES.
MOST PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION YEARS
ARE TUMULTUOUS, FEW, ANYTHING
CLOSE TO THIS.
THE PRESIDENT IMPEACHED, A
GLOBAL PANDEMIC COSTING MORE
THAN 200,000 AMERICANS THEIR
LIVES, MILLIONS MORE THEIR JOBS.
RACIAL PROTESTS, POLITICAL
VIOLENCE, AND NOW A SUPREME
COURT CONFIRMATION BATTLE IN THE
CLOSING WEEKS OF THE CAMPAIGN.
BUT THROUGH IT ALL , THIS
PRESIDENTIAL RACE HAS BEEN
REMARKABLY STABLE.
GO BACK TO THE POLLS IN JANUARY,
YOU'LL SEE THAT JOE BIDEN STILL
FIGHTING FOR THE DEMOCRATIC
NOMINATION HAD ABOUT A
SEVEN-POINT LEAD OVER PRESIDENT
TRUMP.
TAKE A LOOK TODAY AND THE
POLLING AVERAGES ARE BASICALLY
IN THE SAME PLACE.
JOHN CARLOS IN CLEVELAND WITH
EXACTLY FIVE WEEKS TO GO THE
PRESIDENT HAS TO DO SOMETHING TO
SHAKE UP THIS RACE.
>> IF HE DOESN'T SHAKE UP THE
RACE, GEORGE, THE BOTTOM LINE IS
HE IS LIKELY TO LOSE THIS RACE.
AS YOU MENTIONED, THE POLLS HAVE
BEEN STEADY NATIONALLY.
THEY'VE ALSO BEEN STEADY.
AND HE ALSO KNOWS, GEORGE THAT
IF HE DOESN'T CHANGE THE DYNAMIC
AND IF HE DOESN'T CHANGE THE
TRAJECTORY OF THE RACE, HE'LL
LOSE.
HE KNOWS THIS IS HIS SINGLE BEST
CHANCE TO DO SO.
THIS DEBATE, AN AUDIENCE OF
POTENTIAL 100 MILLION PEOPLE
HEAD TO HEAD WITH JOE BIDEN.
WE HAVE TWO DEBATES AFTER THIS,
BUT PEOPLE ARE ALREADY VOTING.
IF HE'S GOING TO CHANGE THE
DYNAMIC OF THE RACE, HE HAS TO
DO IT NOW.
FOUR YEARS AGO HIS CAMPAIGN WAS
WRITTEN OFF AS DEAD AFTER THE
"ACCESS HOLLYWOOD" TAPE WAS
LEAKED.
HE CAME INTO THE DEBATE AND HE
WENT ON THE ATTACK.
RUTHLESSLY AND RELENTLESSLY ON
THE ATTACK.
HE TURN AROUND HIS CAMPAIGN.
I SUSPECT HE'S GOING TO TRY TO
DO SOMETHING LIKE THAT TONIGHT.
>> MARY BRUCE ALSO IN CLEVELAND
TONIGHT.
MARY, DON'T SIT ON YOUR LEAD BUT
DON'T TAKE TRUMP'S BAIT.
>> EXACTLY, GEORGE.
THE BIDEN CAMPAIGN TOLD US HE'S
READY FOR ANYTHING AND HE MAY
HAVE TO BE.
HE KNOWS THE PRESIDENT IS GOING
TO MAKE THIS PERSONAL BUT HE'S
NOT GOING TO BE BAITED INTO A
BRAWL.
THE CHALLENGE IS GOING TO BE
TRYING TO RISE ABOVE ALL OF THE
ATTACKS AND THE GUTTER POLITICS
TO FOCUS ON THE ISSUES.
WE KNOW HE'S EAGER TO TALK ABOUT
THE PRESIDENT'S TAXES AND HIS
BUSINESS RECORD.
IN THE MIDST OF THAT PANDEMIC,
HE'S LIKELY TO HAMMER THE ISSUE
OF HEALTH CARE AND EVEN THOUGH
BIDEN HAS FLATLY LABORED THE
PRESIDENT A LIAR, DON'T EXPECT
HIM TO SPEND A LOT OF TIME FACT
CHECKING THE PRESIDENT.
INSTEAD WE'RE TOLD HE WANTS TO
SPEND HIS TIME SPEAKING DIRECTLY
TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
BIDEN, OF COURSE, IS FAMILIAR
WITH THIS VENUE.
THIS WILL BE HIS 27th DEBATE FOR
THE WHITE HOUSE.
BUT HE'S ALSO SHOWN THAT HE AT
TIMES CAN BE AN UNEVEN DEBATER
AND WE KNOW THE VICE PRESIDENT
HAS TO PERFORMANCE TONIGHT.
HE'S NEVER BEEN UP AGAINST AN
OPPONENT LIKE DONALD TRUMP.
HE HAS TO PROVE THE PRESIDENT
WRONG WHEN HE ATTACKS HIM ON HIS
MENTAL FITNESS.
GEORGE, JOE BIDEN HAS TO BRING
IT TONIGHT.
>> WILD CARD IN THIS DEBATE IN
THE FINAL HOURS THAT, SUNDAY
EXPLOSIVE REPORT IN "THE NEW
YORK TIMES" BY THE PRESIDENT'S
TAXES, SOMETHING HE'S NOT
RELEASED FOR THE LAST SEVERAL
YEARS.
WE HAVE THE LATEST ON THAT.
>> THE TRUMP TEAM SAID THEY
EXPECT THIS TO BE THE VERY FIRST
QUESTION TONIGHT AND THEY'RE
READY FOR IT.
HE HAS FOUGHT THIS EVERY STEP OF
THE WAY.
HE'S NOT FACED QUESTIONS SINCE
THIS STORY BROKE ON SUNDAY.
HE'S EXPECTED TO GET QUESTIONS
ON THIS TONIGHT.
HE HAS NOT RELEASED HIS TAX
RETURNS, THE FIRST PRESIDENT IN
MODERN HISTORY TO DO SO.
HE'LL FACE THESE BIG QUESTIONS.
THIS HAS GIVEN THE BIDEN TEAM
FRESH AMMUNITION.
THEY'RE GOING TO ARGUE THE
PRESIDENT AND THAT $750 HE PAID
IN INCOME TAXES IS THE YEAR HE
WON THE WHITE HOUSE AND HIS
FIRST YEAR IN OFFICE WAS LESS
THAN TEACHERS AND FIREFIGHTERS
AND NURSES IN THIS COUNTRY HAVE
PAID.
THE TRUMP TEAM, THEY'RE EXPECTED
TO SAY THAT THIS IS SMART
BUSINESS, THAT, IN FACT, JOE
BIDEN IS THE ONE WHO HELPED
CREATE THE TAX CODE IN THIS
COUNTRY.
GEORGE, THE BIG QUESTION HEADING
INTO TONIGHT ON THIS ISSUE OF
TAXES IS WILL VOTERS CARE ABOUT
THIS?
THE TRUMP TEAM IS HOPING THIS
WAS LITIGATED ALREADY IN 2016.
>> DAVID MUIR IS HERE.
ONE THING WE KNOW THE VOTERS
CARE ABOUT, COVID-19, THE
PANDEMIC IS GOING TO BE A WHOLE
TOPIC TONIGHT.
>> NO QUESTION ABOUT THAT,
GEORGE.
WE HAVE TO REMEMBER THIS COUNTRY
IS EXHAUSTED BY THE
POLARIZATION, THE POLITICS, AND
MOST CERTAINLY BY THE PANDEMIC.
MORE THAN 200,000 AMERICAN LIVES
LOST, MILLIONS WITHOUT WORK.
IT WAS MONTHS AGO THAT FIRST
INTERVIEW WITH THE PRESIDENT AND
THE PANDEMIC, AND I ASKED HIM
ARE YOU COMFORTABLE WITH THIS
ELECTION BECOMING A REFERENDUM
ON YOUR HANDLING OF THE
PANDEMIC, AND YOU COULD SEE THE
PAIN IN HIS FACE.
HE SAID I AM AND I'M NOT.
BUT HE TOLD ME I DESERVE CREDIT
FOR THE HANDLING OF THE
PANDEMIC.
WE KNOW HE'S SAID I DESERVE AN A
PLUS.
BUT THEN CAME THE AUDIO TAPES,
THE BOB WOODWARD AUDIO TAPES
WHEN YOU HEAR HIM SAYING I'M
DOWNPLAYING THE VIRUS TO AVOID
PANIC.
JOE BIDEN SAYING IT'S CLOSE TO
CRIMINAL.
THE BIG QUESTION IS WHETHER OR
NOT JOE BIDEN TAKES IT THAT FAR
ON THE TEENAGE AND WHAT
PRESIDENT TRUMP WILL SAY TO
DEFEND NOT ONLY HIS HANDLE BUT
GO WHERE WE GO FROM HERE, WHAT'S
HIS VISION FOR THE NEXT FOUR
YEARS.
HOW DOES HE SEE THIS COUNTRY
PULLING ITSELF OUT OF A PANDEMIC
THAT'S TAKEN MORE THAN 200,000
LIVES.
>> WHAT WILL HE SAY ABOUT THE
VACCINE.
LINSEY DAVIS WITH US TONIGHT.
THE PRESIDENT IS TRYING TO HIT
THE THEME OF LAW AND ORDER,
PLAYING OFF THE ROTATIONAL
PROTESTS WE'VE SEEN ACROSS THE
COUNTRY THIS SUMMER.
>> SURE.
CERTAINLY MANY PEOPLE STILL
FEELING RAW IN THE WAKE OF THE
LACK OF CHARGES IN BREONNA
TAYLOR.
I'M GOING TO ADD TO DAVID'S
WORDS, AMERICANS ARE ALSO ANGRY
AND FRUSTRATED, MINDFUL OF THE
BOY PROTESTING IN COLUMBIA,
SOUTH CAROLINA, SAYING WE DIDN'T
COME THIS FAR TO COME THIS FAR.
WHICH ONE OF THESE CANDIDATES IS
GOING TO ACTUALLY PROPEL BLACK
AND BROWN COMMUNITIES FORWARD?
I THINK THAT IT'S PLAUSIBLE THAT
WE COULD SEE PRESIDENT TRUMP
PULL THE 1994 CRIME BILL OUT OF
HIS BACK POCKET.
>> WHICH JOE BIDEN SUPPORTED.
>> HE WROTE THE LEGISLATION.
MANY ARGUED THAT WAS REALLY
DETRIMENTAL TO THE BLACK
COMMUNITY FOR DECADES, EVEN NOW
TODAY.
HOWEVER, ON THE FLIP SIDE, THE
TRUMP ADMINISTRATION IS NOT
WILLING TO ACKNOWLEDGE THAT
SYSTEMIC RACISM STILL EXISTS IN
THIS COUNTRY.
THERE WAS A PEW STUDY THAT
SHOWED 9% OF TRUMP SUPPORTERS
ACTUALLY BELIEVE IT'S HARDER IN
THIS COUNTRY TO BE BLACK THAN
WHITE.
COMPARE THAT TO 74% OF THOSE WHO
SUPPORT BIDEN.
I THINK WE HAVE TO BE MINDFUL
ONLY ONE-THIRD, WHICH IS THE
LARGEST AMOUNT WE'VE HAD IN
HISTORY, NONWHITE VOTERS IN THIS
ELECTORATE THIS YEAR.
>> LINSEY DAVIS, THANKS.
THE ONLY JOURNALIST IN THE —
MARTHA RAD DITZ.
JOE BIDEN AND PAUL RYAN BACK IN
2012.
WHAT DID YOU LEARN ABOUT THEIR
DEBATE STYLES?
>> I THINK JOHN SAID IT RIGHT
OFF THE BAT.
WE'VE ALL SEEN IT.
DONALD TRUMP IS COMBATIVE.
HE WILL COME OUT SWINGING.
HE LURKED ON THE STAGE IN 2016.
DEALING WITH DONALD TRUMP IS
MORE LIKE BEING A LION TAMER
THAN A DEBATE MODERATOR.
YOU REALLY HAD TO KEEP HIM ON
TIME.
HE'LL GO AFTER THE MODERATOR.
I HAD TO STOP HIM SEVERAL TIMES
AND THEN HE WOULD COULD YOU SEE
ME OF LETTING HILLARY CLINTON
HAVE MORE TIME.
SO I EXPECT HE'LL GO AFTER THE
MODERATOR AND HE WILL HARD
CHARGE AGAINST JOE BIDEN.
NOW, JOE BIDEN IN 2012 WAS VERY
FEISTY IN THAT DEBATE AND VERY,
VERY WONKY, VERY POLICY DRIVEN.
BUT JOE BIDEN ALSO HAD A REAL
SENSE OF HUMOR THEN, AND I DON'T
THINK YOU SEE THAT WITH DONALD
TRUMP IN ANY OF THESE DEBATES,
IN ANYTHING WITH DONALD TRUMP
WHENEVER HE'S TALKING PEOPLE.
YOU DON'T REALLY SEE THAT SENSE
OF HUMOR: I THINK YOU'LL SEE JOE
BIDEN DO THAT TONIGHT, ALTHOUGH
HE'S FAR MORE UNEVEN THAN HE WAS
IN 2012.
>> YOU KNOW THE PRESSURE CHRIS
WALL STREET WILL BE UNDER
TONIGHT.
THE MODERATOR HAS TO ASK
REVEALING QUESTIONS, WHEN TO
FOLLOW-UP AND GET ANSWERS BUT
NOT BECOME THE STORY.
>> EXACTLY.
I'M SO RELAXED TONIGHT, GEORGE.
I FEEL SO MUCH BETTER THAN
LOOKING AT THAT STAGE TONIGHT
AND REMEMBERING WHAT THAT'S
LIKE.
BUT CHRIS IS AN EXCELLENT
MODERATOR.
HE DID A GREAT JOB IN 2016.
BUT I KNOW JUST THE SAME WAY I
WANTED TO STAY OUT OF IT AND NOT
BECOME THE STORY, CHRIS WANTS TO
DO THAT AS WELL.
BUT YOU ALSO HAVE TO DO
FACT-BASED QUESTIONS.
YOU HAVE TO GIVE THE CANDIDATES
QUESTIONS THAT WILL CHALLENGE
THEM, BUT YOU'RE NOT REALLY THE
PERSON WHO'S SAYING YOU'RE
WRONG, YOU'RE RIGHT.
THAT'S UP TO THEM.
>> HE SAID HE'S NOT GOING TO
FACT CHECK, BUT WE SHOULD EXPECT
HIM TO FOLLOW UP.
>> I THINK HE'LL FOLLOW UP AND
WE'VE CERTAINLY OFF THE TOP OF
MY HEAD — LIKE YOU DID, GEORGE,
THE OTHER DAY IN THE TOWN HALL:
YOU FOLLOW UP WHEN YOU CAN, WHEN
YOU HAVE THE INFORMATION THERE,
AND YOU CAN PASS IT OFF TO THE
OTHER CANDIDATE.
IF DONALD TRUMP SAYS SOMETHING
THAT THE MODERATOR DOESN'T FEEL
IS CORRECT, HELPING ME FOLLOW UP
WITH THAT BUT TOSS IT TO JOE
BIDEN.
>> MARTHA, THANK YOU SO MUCH.
>>> WHEN WE COME BACK, NATE
SILVER'S ELECTION FORECAST.
THE SIX BIG BATTLEGROUNDS AND
OUR POWERHOUSE ROUNDTABLE.
>> THE MOST IMPORTANT ISSUE OF
THE DEBATE FOR ME WOULD BE —
>> THE DEPARTMENT OF JUSTICE —

>>> CLEVELAND, OHIO, UNDER AN
HOUR BEFORE THE FIRST DEBATE
BETWEEN PRESIDENT TRUMP, FORMER
VICE PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN, 90
MINUTES TO GO TONIGHT.
PLUS A VICE PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE.
JOE BIDEN ENTERS THIS DEBATE
SEASON WITH A SEVEN-POINT LEAD
IN THE NATIONAL RACE ACCORDING
TO POLLING AVERAGES.
OF COURSE THIS IS ABOUT THE
ELECTORATE COLLEGE.
HILLARY CLINTON WON THE POPULAR
VOTE BUT NOT THE PRESIDENCY.
THIS TIME THE CAMPAIGNS ARE
SPENDING MOST OF THEIR TIME ON
SIX BATTLEGROUND STATES.
TOM IS HERE WITH A DEEPER DIVE
ON THAT.
>> THESE ARE SIX CRITICAL
BATTLEGROUND STATES THE
PRESIDENT WON FOUR YEARS AGO.
HERE THEY ARE.
MICHIGAN, WISCONSIN,
PENNSYLVANIA, NORTH CAROLINA,
ARIZONA, AND FLORIDA.
IN THIS COLUMN WE HAVE THE
PRESIDENT'S MARGIN OF VICTORY
FOUR YEARS AGO.
HERE WE HAVE AN AVERAGE POLLING
OF FROM OUR PARTNERS AT
FIVETHIRTYEIGHT.
MICHIGAN, WISCONSIN, AND
PENNSYLVANIA.
LOOK HOW THIN THIS MARGIN OF
VICTORY IS FOR THE PRESIDENT.
WE'RE TALKING ABOUT LESS THAN
1%.
IN MICHIGAN THAT WAS 11,000
VOTES.
IN PENNSYLVANIA, 44,000 VOTES
OUT OF 6 MILLION CAST.
JOE BIDEN IS ON TOP.
OUR POLL OUT OF PENNSYLVANIA
TODAY HAS HIM UP EVEN HIGHER.
NORTH CAROLINA AND ARIZONA, THE
STORY IS A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT.
THE PRESIDENT HAD A DECISIVE
VICTORY THERE, BUT POLLS RIGHT
NOW SHOW THE RACE IS NECK AND
NECK.
ALSO WHAT'S HAPPENING IN THESE
TWO STATES, YOU HAVE WHAT WE
HAVE CALLED DOWN-BALLOT RACES
WHERE THE DEMOCRATS ARE IN A
SENATE RACE IN ARIZONA AND A
GOVERNOR'S RACE IN NORTH
CAROLINA.
THE DEMOCRATS COULD HELP JOE
BIDEN.
IN FLORIDA, THE PRESIDENT WON BY
MORE THAN 100,000 VOTES.
EXPERTS TELL US THIS IS HIS BEST
STATE ON THIS BOARD RIGHT NOW
FOR TWO REASONS, REALLY.
ONE, A LOT OF RETIREES HAVE
MOVED TO THE STATE SINCE THE
ELECTION AND OUR POLLING SHOWS
JOE BIDEN HAS TROUBLE WITH
HISPANIC VOTERS RIGHT NOW.
BUT WE ALSO WANT TO MENTION ONE
MORE THING.
THERE'S A COLLECTION OF OTHER
STATES, TEXAS, GEORGIA, IOWA,
AND OHIO WHERE THE PRESIDENT WON
BIG, BUT RIGHT NOW HE'S BEHIND
OR THE POLLS ARE CLOSE.
THAT'S WHY HE COULD BE FIGHTING
FOR EVERY BOAT, AND THAT'S WHY
TONIGHT'S DEBATE IS IMPORTANT.
>> LET'S GO TO OUR STATISTICAL
GURU WHO HAS AN ALGORITHM THAT
FORECASTS THE PROBABILITIES OF
EACH CANDIDATE WINNING THE RACE.
AS WE HEAD TO THE DEBATE SEASON,
WHERE IS IT?
>> RIGHT NOW WE HAVE JOE BIDEN
WITH AROUND A 75% TO 80% CHANCE
OF WINNING ELECTORATE COLLEGE.
THINGS ARE COUNTED ON ELECTION
NIGHT OR A FEW WEEKS AFTER.
LOOK, THIS IS NOT THAT CLOSE A
RACE RIGHT NOW.
AS TOM WAS SAYING, THE CLOSEST
STATES ARE GEORGIA AND TEXAS AND
OHIO.
PENNSYLVANIA AND WISCONSIN AND
MICHIGAN HAVE REBOUNDED STRONGLY
FOR BIDEN RELATIVE TO WHERE
HILLARY CLINTON WAS FOUR YEARS
AGO.
RIGHT NOW BIDEN HAS THE POLLS HE
WANTS.
WE STILL HAVE LOTS OF NEWS GOING
ON.
WE STILL HAVE THREE DEBATES.
SO THERE'S UNCERTAINTY.
BUT YOU WOULD MUCH RATHER BE IN
JOE BIDEN'S POSITION RIGHT NOW.
>> HOW DOES THIS COMPARE TO
WHERE HILLARY CLINTON AND DONALD
TRUMP WERE FOUR YEARS AGO AROUND
THIS TIME?
>> AT THIS POINT IN 2012 CLINTON
ONLY HAD A ONE-POINT LEAD.
IT'S A MUCH LESS CLOSE RACE THAN
IT WAS FOUR YEARS AGO.
PEOPLE FORGET 2016 YOU HAD LOTS
OF SWING STATES THAT SHOWED
TRUMP AHEAD.
WE PRETENDED THAT COUNTLINTON W
SURE TO WIN BUT THERE ARE FEWER
"UNDECIDEDS."
THEY NEED TO CHANGE MINDS, WHICH
IS DOABLE, IT'S A CRAZY
CAMPAIGN, BUT WE'RE IN THE RANGE
WHERE YOU DON'T SEE COMEBACKS
LIKE YOU WOULD HAVE IN JULY AND
AUGUST.
>> LIFT THE VEIL ON YOUR
PROCESS.
PEOPLE LOOK AT THAT PERCENTAGE
YOU PUT UP ON YOUR WEBSITE EVERY
DAY.
GIVE PEOPLE A SENSE OF WHAT GOES
INTO THAT.
>> WE TAKE POLLS, HISTORIC
POLLS, BUT IT'S ALL BASED ON
HISTORY.
IF YOU HAVE A CANDIDATE WITH THE
LEAD OF THIS MARGIN WITH 35 DAYS
TO GO, HOW OFTEN DO THEY WIN?
BIDEN, 35%, OF THE TIME.
>> I WANT TO START WITH RAHM
EMANUEL, FORMER CHIEF OF STAFF
TO PRESIDENT OBAMA AND MAYOR OF
CHICAGO.
YOU WERE WITH JOE BIDEN FOR A
LONG TIME.
GIVE US A SENSE OF THE JOE BIDEN
CAMP.
>> IF I SAID NINE MONTHS AGO
YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE
$150 MILLION MORE THAN THE
INCUMBENT PRESIDENT, WOULD YOU
TAKE THAT AND GO?
HE HAS A ONE-ACT PLAY TONIGHT,
REASSURE VOTERS.
DONALD TRUMP HAS A THREE-ACT
PLAY.
HE HAS TO STOP THE MOMENTUM
THAT'S CLEARLY TICKING UP A
POINT HERE AND THERE AND MOVING.
HE HAS TO STOP IT TONIGHT AND
THEN OVER THE NEXT TWO DEBATES
TRY TO CHANGE PEOPLE'S
PERCEPTIONS OVER THE LAST THREE
AND A HALF YEARS THAT THEY HAVE.
AT THE END OF THE DAY WHEN YOU
LOOK AT EVERYTHING, DONALD TRUMP
IS GETTING 43%.
THAT'S EXACTLY THE NUMBER OF HIS
JOB APPROVAL.
JOE BIDEN, 50%, 49%, THE EXACT
PERCENTAGE OF PEOPLE WHO WILL
NEVER VOTE FOR DONALD TRUMP.
AND THE CENTRIFUGAL FORCE ON
THIS IS DONALD TRUMP.
THIS DEBATE IS BIG, I BET
THERE'S AS GOOD A CHANCE THAT
ANY THAT AFTERWARDS IF SOMETHING
MAJOR HAPPENS, WE'RE GOING TO
SAY THIS TOO HASN'T CHANGED WHAT
HAPPENED.
IT IS AN PANDEMIC AND ECONOMIC
DEPRESSION AND SOCIAL AND CIVIL
UNREST, THAT HASN'T CHANGED A
DEBATE ALSO.
>> DONALD TRUMP HAS A TOUGH JOB.
CHRIS CHRISTIE, YOU'VE BEEN PART
OF THE THE PRESIDENT'S DEBATE
PREP THIS YEAR.
YOU WROTE IN YOUR BOOK THAT THE
DEBATE PREP IN 2016 DIDN'T GO
THEY CAN'T WELL.
I CAN'T USE THE WORDS YOU USED
IN YOUR BOOK.
>> NOT SHOCKING, I'M FROM
NEW JERSEY, GEORGE.
>> HOW IS IT GOING THIS TIME?
>> MUCH BETTER THAN FOUR YEARS
AGO.
LISTEN, WHAT HE NEEDS TO DO
TONIGHT, I'VE BEEN SAYING THIS
ALL ALONG, IF THIS IS AN
ELECTION FOR SENIOR CLASS
PRESIDENT, JOE BIDEN WINS.
HE IS PERSONALLY MORE POPULAR
WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THAN
DONALD TRUMP IS RIGHT NOW.
IT'S JUST A FACT.
BUT IF DONALD TRUMP MAKES THIS
ELECTION ABOUT WHOSE VISION OF
AMERICA FOR THE NEXT FOUR YEARS
IS ONE YOU AGREE WITH MORE,
THAT'S THE GROUND HE'S GOT TO
PLAY ON.
SO I THINK HE'S GOT TO PLAY
OFFENSE TONIGHT, BUT THAT'S
NATURAL TO HIM.
BUT WHAT HE PLAYS OFFENSE ON IS
MOST IMPORTANT.
HE PLAYS OFFENSE ON THE ISSUES
THAT ARE VERY IMPORTANT TO THE
AMERICAN PEOPLE, THEN I THINK HE
CAN HAVE A GOOD PERFORMANCE
TONIGHT.
IF WE GOT INTO A PERSONALITY
BATTLE, THAT'S NOT GOOD FOR THE
PRESIDENT.
>> ONE OF THE THINGS THE
PRESIDENT HAD TRIED TO DO IS
PAINT JOE BIDEN AS A SOCIALIST
AND A TROJAN HORSE FOR
SOCIALISM.
BUT WE ALSO KNOW PEOPLE HAVE
BEEN VOTING ALL ACROSS THE
COUNTRY FOR SEVERAL WEEKS.
>> THEY HAVE.
AND I THINK THAT'S THE GREATEST
BENEFIT TO THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY
BECAUSE A LOT MORE DEMOCRATIC
VOTERS ARE TAKING THOSE EARLY
BALLOTS.
BUT THERE'S ALSO A LOT OF
CONFUSION.
WE'VE BEEN TALKING TO VOTERS IN
BATTLEGROUND STATES FOR THE LAST
COUPLE OF WEEKS AND PEOPLE ARE
AFRAID TO PUT THEIR BALLOTS IN
THE MAIL AND THE RULES THAT KEEP
EXCHANGING.
IN OHIO, THEY STILL HAVE
BATTLING OVER BALLOT BOXES.
AND SO WHAT WE'RE TELLING PEOPLE
IS KEEP THE MOMENTUM, KEEP
GOING.
AND SO AS NATE SAID, THE ONE X
FACTOR IN THIS ELECTION IS WILL
PEOPLE'S VOTES COUNT?
OR WILL THEY BE STOPPED AT THE
POLLING PLACE.
>> JOE BIDEN HAS TO REBUT THE
CHALLENGES THAT HE'S A SOCIALISM
WITHOUT DAMPENING HIS SUPPORT IN
THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY?
>> WE'RE NOT CLAIMING JOE BIDEN
AS A LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE
SOCIALIST.
HE'S NOT THAT.
AND SO WE'RE NOT SAYING IT, I
DON'T THINK ANYBODY BELIEVES IT.
HE HAS TO STICK TO THE FACTS.
HE HAS TO STICK TO WHAT HE IS
AND WHAT HE'S DOING, AND MORE
IMPORTANTLY, HE NEEDS TO COME
OUT VERY STRONG AND AS A STRONG
LEADER.
RIGHT NOW A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE
AFRAID.
THEY'RE HURTING, RIGHT?
THIS RBG THING REALLY SHOOK THE
WORLD, AND A LOT OF PEOPLE WANT
TO SEE HIM STRONG, BOLD, AND
MAKING REAL CHANGE, AND I HOPE
SHE SHOWS UP THAT WAY.
I THINK HE'S GOING TO UNIFY A
LOT OF PEOPLE, INCLUDING MY WING
OF THE PARTY.
>> REPUBLICAN STRATEGIST SARA
FAGEN, YOU SAY JOE BIDEN HAS
TOUGHER JOB TONIGHT THAN THE
PRESIDENT?
>> I THINK HE DOES.
HE'S MUCH MORE LESS KNOWN THAN
DONALD TRUMP.
OPINIONS ON DONALD TRUMP ARE
HARDENED.
FOR THE VICE PRESIDENT, IF HE
COMES INTO THIS DEBATE AND PLAYS
INTO THE NARRATIVE THAT DONALD
TRUMP HAS — HE'S IN COGNITIVE
DECLINE OR HE'S GOING TO MAKE
ALL THESE GAFFES, YOU KNOW, IT
MAY CAUSE THE AMERICAN PEOPLE TO
SAY MAYBE THERE'S SOMETHING TO
WHAT TRUMP IS SAYING.
I DO THINK THAT'S A MISTAKE FOR
THE PRESIDENT AND POTENTIALLY
VERY RISKY BECAUSE THE FLIP SIDE
OF THAT IS IF JOE BIDEN SHOWS UP
AND HE JUST IS AVERAGE, YOU
KNOW, PEOPLE ARE GOING TO SAY,
WELL, YOU DIDN'T FIT THE
NARRATIVE THE PRESIDENT'S BEEN
SAYING ABOUT YOU FOR THE LAST
MANY MONTHS OF THIS RACE.
>> MATT DOWD, YOU PREPARED
GEORGE W. BUSH FOR HIS RACE.
ONE OF THE BIG QUESTIONS ON THE
TABLE, HOW MUCH WILL THIS DEBATE
MATTER?
>> I THINK THAT'S A HUGE
QUESTION JOE BIDEN WOULD LIKE
THIS DEBATE NOT TO MATTER.
DONALD TRUMP NEEDS THIS DEBATE
TO MATTER.
WE'VE SEEN A DEMOCRATIC
NOMINATION THAT HASN'T CHANGED
THE RACE.
WE'VE SEEN A PANDEMIC THAT
HASN'T CHANGED THE RACE.
WE'VE SEEN TWO CONVENTIONS THAT
HAVEN'T CHANGED THE RACE.
DONALD TRUMP FULGTSLY NEEDS TO
CHANGE THE STATUS QUO OF THIS
RACE BECAUSE IF HE DOESN'T, JOE
BIDEN CONTINUES THE LEAD FOR THE
NEXT 30 DAYS AND THAT'S
DIFFERENT THAN 2016 WHERE THIS
IS A REFERENDUM ON DONALD TRUMP.
SO FAR THAT'S NOT GOING WELL.
>> BYRON, ONE OF THE THINGS YOU
POINT OUT ARE THE STAKES ARE
HIGH TONIGHT BUT THE
EXPECTATIONS ARE LOW FOR BOTH
CANDIDATES?
>> THAT'S EXACTLY RIGHT.
NEVER HAVE THE STAKES BEEN
HIGHER FOR THE RACE FOR
PRESIDENT.
BUT NEVER HAVE THE CRITIQUES
BEEN LOWER.
ALL SUMMER BOTH MEN HAVE
BASICALLY SAID THE OTHER GUY IS
TOO OLD, TOO DUMB, AND CORRUPT
TO BE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED
STATES.
THAT'S NOT A COMPELLING ARGUMENT
FOR EITHER SIDE.
GEORGE, THE QUESTION WE ASK
EVERY FOUR YEARS, IS YOUR LIFE
BETTER TODAY THAN IT WAS FOUR
YEARS AGO?
THAT POTENTIALLY IS A DANGEROUS
QUESTION FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP.
COVID-19, THE ECONOMY, THE
RACIAL DIVIDE, ALL THAT HAS
HAPPENED ON HIS WATCH, FAIRLY OR
UNFAIRLY, THAT'S HAPPENED IN
TRUMP'S AMERICA.

BUT WE'VE DONE A GREAT JOB.
WE CREATED THE GREATEST ECONOMY
IN HISTORY.
>> PRESIDENT TRUMP ON HIS DEBATE
PREP.
LET'S TALK TO DON JR.
WHAT'S A WIN TONIGHT.
?
>> LISTEN, WE HAVE WE HAVE TO
TALK ABOUT RECORD.
JOE BIDEN HAS BEEN A D.C. SWAMP
CREATURE FOR HALF A CENTURY, YET
NO ONE I SEE IN MIDDLE AMERICA
CAN NAME A JOE BIDEN
ACCOMPLISHMENT.
THE REALITY IS THIS.
DONALD TRUMP IS GETTING US OUT
OF ENDLESS WARS.
WE HAVE TO POINT THAT OUT.
THE POSITIVE THINGS DONALD TRUMP
DOES DON'T GET ATTENTION IN THE
MAINSTREAM MEDIA.
WHAT HAS JOE BIDEN DONE.
GEORGIOS WE HAD THIS
CONVERSATION BEFORE.
LOOK WHAT THE MEDIA AND THE
DEMOCRATS TRIED TO DO TO ME.
NOW WE'VE SEEN WHAT HUNTER BIDEN
IS LITERALLY DOING AROUND THE
WORLD, WHETHER IT'S 3.5 MILLION
FROM A KNOWN ASSOCIATE OF
VLADIMIR PUTIN IN RUSSIA, MONEY
THAT'S TIED TO HUMAN TRAFFICKING
AND PROSTITUTION RINGS.
IMAGINE THE FIELD DAY THAT'D
HAVE WITH ME.
THAT'S THE PROBLEM.
WE DON'T HAVE AN OBJECTIVE
MEDIA.
WE HAVE A MEDIA THAT'S GOING TO
GO TO BAT FOR THE OTHER SIDE.
WE HAVE TO TALK ABOUT JOE
BIDEN'S RECORD.
WE HAVE TO TALK ABOUT THE
THINGS, THE JOBS HE'S STHHIPPEDO
CHINA.
SO THESE ARE THINGS THAT HAVE TO
COME UP BECAUSE JOE BIDEN'S BEEN
ABLE TO RUN AS THIS GENERIC
DEMOCRAT WITHOUT A RECORD.
WHEN YOU ACTUALLY LOOK AT HIS
RECORD, IT'S QUITE DISASTROUS
OVER THE HALF A CENTURY HE'S
BEEN IN D.C.
>> YOU'RE GOING TO TRY TO MAKE
JOE BIDEN THE ISSUE TONIGHT.
HUNTER BIDEN WE EXPECT WOULD
COME UP AS WELL.
BUT AS YOU KNOW, "THE NEW YORK
TIMES" REPORT TALKS ABOUT
FOREIGN PAYMENTS THE PRESIDENT
HAS GOTTEN OVER THE LAST FOUR
YEARS BEING IN DEBT OVER
$400 MILLION.
SOME INTELLIGENCE PROFESSIONALS
CLAIM THAT A NATIONAL SECURITY
RISK?
>> THAT'S RIDICULOUS.
"THE NEW YORK TIMES" POINTED OUT
TRUMP TOWER'S WORTH IS
$500 MILLION.
IF HE HAS $100 MILLION MORTGAGE,
THAT'S 20% LEVERAGE.
TYPICALLY WOULD BE 70% TO 80%.
THEY DON'T TALK ABOUT THE
$50 MILLION IN TAXES PAID
THROUGH PAYROLL TAXES AND OTHER
STUFF FROM DONALD TRUMP'S
BUSINESSES.
THEY TAKE THIS SNAPSHOT WHERE
THEY CAN TAKE THE GOOD BUT DON'T
TALK ABOUT THE FULL PICTURE.
THEY DON'T TALK ABOUT THE TRUTH
TORE JOBS CREATED IN THOSE
BUSINESSES.
THE REALITY IS THIS.
IF PEOPLE HAVE A PROBLEM WITH
THE TAX CODE, TALK TO JOE BIDEN.
HE'S THE GUY THAT'S BEEN
LEGISLATING THESE THINGS FOR 47
YEARS.
JOE BIDEN TOOK ADVANTAGE OF
LOOPHOLES IN THE PAYROLL TAX TO
DO THE SAME THING TO SAVE HALF A
MILLION DOLLARS HIMSELF.
IF YOU HAVE A PROBLEM, TALK TO
THE PEOPLE WHO'VE BEEN CREATING
THE AMERICAN TAX CODE FOR THE
LAST HALF CENTURY, AND THAT'S
JOE BIDEN.
>> THE LAST TAX BILL PASSED WAS
BY YOUR FATHER, SIGNED INTO LAW
BY YOUR FATHER.
MANY POINTED OUT HIS BUSINESSES
BENEFITED FROM THE TAX CODE.
WAS IT A MISTAKE TO LOWER
EXPECTATIONS FOR JOE BIDEN
COMING INTO THIS DEBATE?
>> YOU KNOW, I DON'T KNOW.
I'M NOT SO WORRIED ABOUT THE TWO
HOURS OF THE DEBATE.
I'M WORRIED ABOUT THE OTHER 22
HOURS OF THE DAY WHERE JOE SEEMS
TO STRUGGLE WHERE HE'S ON A
TELEPROMTER.
HE HASN'T HAD TO CAMPAIGN THE
SAME WAY.
I KNOW PEOPLE HONESTLY WHO HAVE
RUN FOR FIRST GRADE CLASS
PRESIDENT THAN JOE BIDEN HAS FOR
PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES.
HE'S BEEN DOING DEBATE PREP,
THAT'S PRESUMEDLY THAT'S WHAT
HE'S DOING WHAT HE'S NOT ON THE
ROAD.
BUT WHEN HE HAS A MAINSTREAM
MEDIA THAT DOESN'T MAKE HIM
ANSWER QUESTIONS, HE SHOULD BE
DOING FINE.
THIS SHOULD BE HIS HAPPY PLACE.
SO WE'LL SEE WHAT HAPPENS.
BUT, YOU KNOW, I DON'T KNOW.
I THINK MY FATHER'S GOING TO BE
MY FATHER AND THAT'S WHY HE'S
DELIVERING RESULTS RATHER THAN
REPEATING THE SAME MISTAKES OF
PEOPLE WHO'VE BEEN CAREER
POLITICIANS.
>> DON JR., THANK YOU SO MUCH
FOR YOUR TIME TONIGHT.
>> WHEN WE COME BACK THE DEPUTY
CAMPAIGN MANAGER FOR JOE BIDEN,
KATE BETTINGFIELD.

MUCH ON THE LINE, MORE AMERICANS

>> LET'S GET MORE ON THAT FROM
HIS DEPUTY CAMPAIGN MANAGER,
KATE BETTINGFIELD IN CLEVELAND
TONIGHT.
U
YOU JUST HEARD DON JUNIOR.
PERHAPS SUGGESTING THAT IT'S JOE
BIDEN WHO'S TAKING ADVANTAGE OF
LOOPHOLES AND TAX BILLS.
>> GEORGE, I WAS LISTENING TO
DON JUNIOR AND I DIDN'T HEAR A
LOT OF REASONS TO VOTE FOR
DONALD TRUMP.
DONALD TRUMP HAS BEEN PRESIDENT
FOR FOUR YEARS.
WE ARE LIVING IN DONALD TRUMP'S
AMERICA.
HE'S THE INCUMBENT PRESIDENT AND
I DIDN'T HEAR A WHOLE LOT ABOUT
WHAT HE'S DONE TO MAKE LIFE
BETTER FOR PEOPLE IN THIS
COUNTRY, WHAT HE'S DONE TO MAKE
LIFE BETTER FOR WORKING
FAMILIES.
I HEARD A LOT OF ATTACKS AND
PERSONAL CRITICISMS OF JOE
BIDEN'S SON.
I DIDN'T HEAR LOOT A LOT OF
REASONS IF I'M A VOTER TONIGHT
LISTENING TO THIS DEBATE.
I DIDN'T HEAR A LOT OF REASONS
TO VOTE FOR DONALD TRUMP.
WHAT JOE BIDEN IS GOING TO DO
TONIGHT IS TALK ABOUT THE THINGS
THAT HE WOULD DO AS PRESIDENT TO
GET THIS VIRUS UNDER CONTROL, TO
BUILD OUR ECONOMY BACK BETTER,
TO MAKE IT SO THAT WE CAN SEND
OUR KIDS TO SCHOOL SAFELY AGAIN.
HE'S GOING TO LAY OUT A CASE
TONIGHT FOR THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
THAT WHAT WE'VE GOT FOR FOUR
YEARS WE DON'T HAVE TO HAVE FOUR
MORE YEARS OF THAT.
WE CAN GO IN A DIFFERENT
DIRECTION AND HAVE A PRESIDENT
IN THE WHITE HOUSE WHO'S GOING
TO BE THINKING ABOUT WORKING
PEOPLE.
YOU'LL HEAR HIS BELIEF THAT THIS
IS A RACE BETWEEN SCRANTON AND
PARK AVENUE AND HE'S GOING TO
MAKE THAT CASE TONIGHT DIRECTLY
TO PEOPLE WHO ARE WATCHING AT
HOME.
>> DOES HE LET THE ATTACKS GO?
SOME DEMOCRATS ARE WORRIED HE
MIGHT SHOW ANGRY ON STAGE AND
THE PRESIDENT MIGHT GET UNDER
HIS SKIN?
>> OF COURSE HE'S NOT GOING TO
ALLOW PRESIDENT TRUMP TO
MISCONSTRUE HIS RECORD OR EVEN
TO ATTACK HIS SON.
I MEAN, THESE ARE ATTACKS WE'VE
SEEN DONALD TRUMP AND THE TRUMP
CAMPAIGN TRIED TO DEPLOY FOR 16
MONTHS IN THIS CAMPAIGN.
THEY HAVE BEEN PRETTY
UNIVERSALLY DISCREDITED BY THE
INDEPENDENT PRESS.
SENATOR JOHNSON PUT OUT A REPORT
LAST WEEK THAT MITT ROMNEY
HIMSELF WAS ESSENTIALLY A
POLITICAL TOOL.
THIS IS NOT AN ATTACK ANYBODY
HAS TAKEN SERIOUSLY OR THAT HAS
CREDIBILITY.
AND YET TRUMP AND THE TRUMP
CAMPAIGN SEND A TREMENDOUS
AMOUNT OF TIME FOCUSED ON JOE
BIDEN'S FAMILY, NOT FOCUSING ON
VOTERS' FAMILIES, NOT FOCUSING
ON AMERICAN FAMILIES.
SO JOE BIDEN IS GOING TO OFFER A
DIFFERENT CHOICE TONIGHT.
HE'S GOING TO OFFER A DIFFERENT
VISION FOR WHAT THIS COUNTRY CAN
BE, A POSITIVE VISION, A HOPEFUL
VISION, AND ONE THAT IS REALLY
ABOUT STEADY LEADERSHIP,
RESPONSIBLE LEADERSHIP, YOU
KNOW, TAKING OWNERSHIP, BEING A
PRESIDENT WHO PUTS PEOPLE'S
NEEDS FIRST.
THAT'S WHAT YOU'LL HEAR FROM JOE
BIDEN TONIGHT.
>> AND SUCCESS TONIGHT IS?
>> SUCCESS IS TALKING DIRECTLY
FOR THOSE FAMILIES AT THEIR
KITCHEN TABLE ACROSS THIS
COUNTRY WHO ARE WORRIED ABOUT
HOW THEY SEND THEIR KIDS
BACK-TO-SCHOOL, WHO ARE WORRIED
ABOUT HOW THEY GET THEIR SMALL
BUSINESS BACK ON THEIR FEET.
HE IS GOING TO BE MAKING A CASE
DIRECTLY TO THEM THAT IF THEY
ENTRUST HIM WITH THE PRESIDENCY,
HE'LL ALWAYS HAVE THEM FIRST AND
FOREMOST IN HIS MIND WHEN HE
WAKES UP IN THE MORNING AND WHEN
HE GOES TO BED AT NIGHT.
HE'LL LAY OUT A CONCRETE VISION
TO MAKE LIFE BETTER FOR PEOPLE
ACROSS THIS COUNTRY, AND I THINK
THE CLEAR CONTRAST BETWEEN
SOMEBODY WHO VIEWS THE WORLD
THROUGH THE LENS OF HAVING GROAN
UP IN SCRANTON, PENNSYLVANIA, IS
GOING TO BE APPARENT ON THE
STAGE TONIGHT.
>> 20 MINUTES TO GO.
WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
>> GOING INTO THIS DEBATE —
>> I WANT TO FEEL INSPIRED.
>> I FEEL STRESSED.
I'M NEWLY 18.
IT'S MY FIRST TIME VOTING IN THE

PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE.
LET'S TALK MORE ABOUT THOSE
THREATS TO THE ELECTION.
CHIEF JUSTICE CORRESPONDENT
PIERRE THOMAS.
ONE OF THE MAJOR THINGS WE'RE
SEEING THIS YEAR, WARNINGS FROM
THE DIRECTOR OF NATIONAL
INTELLIGENCE, DEPARTMENT% OF
HONEST, FBI, FOREIGN
INTERFERENCE.
>> EXACTLY, GEORGE.
AGAIN, RUSSIA IS SUPPOSEDLY AT
IT AGAIN.
THE FBI DIRECTOR TALKED ABOUT
THE FACT THAT THE RUSSIANS ARE
TRYING TO SOW DISINFORMATION
AIMED AS TARGETING VICE
PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN.
THERE'S GENERIC CONCERN ABOUT
CHINA AND IRAN, BUT AGAIN, ALL
MY SOURCES ARE POINTING TO
RUSSIA AS THE PRIMARY CULPRIT IN
TERMS OF TARGET THIS GUY
ELECTION, GEORGE.
>> HOW ARE THEY DOING IT SO FAR?
>> THE PRIMARY THING IS THAT
THEY'RE PUTTING OUT NEGATIVE
INFORMATION ABOUT JOE BIDEN.
SOME OF IT CONCERNS HIS HEALTH.
THE GOAL ACCORDING TO MY SOURCES
APPEARS TO BE TO SUPPRESS HIS
VOTE AND TO MOTIVATE TRUMP
VOTERS.
>> ONE OF THE OTHER THINGS, WE
KNOW PRESIDENT TRUMP IS GOING TO
BRING UP HIS BELIEF THAT THE
ELECTION IS RIGGED.
HE'S BEEN RAISING ALL THESE
WARNINGS ABOUT MAIL-IN BALLOTS.
LET'S GET SOME FACTS ON THE
TABLE.
>> THAT'S GOING TO PUT JOE BIDEN
IN A BIT OF A TOUGH SPOT, RIGHT?
BECAUSE THE PRESIDENT WILL MAKE
ALLEGATIONS ABOUT VOTER FRAUD.
HE'LL CITE EXAMPLES WHERE HE'LL
SAY, YOU KNOW, THESE BALLOTS
RAILROAD FOUND IN A GARBAGE,
THIS HAPPENED AND THAT HAPPENED.
AND THEN JOE BIDEN HAS TO MAKE A
FUNDAMENTAL DECISION, WHICH IS
AM I GOING TO GET INTO, WELL,
YOU APPOINTED THIS COMMISSION
AND THAT COMMISSION INVESTIGATED
IN FLORIDA AND THIS ONE WAS A
NATIONAL COMMISSION AND NONE OF
THEM FOUND SYSTEMIC VOTER FRAUD.
BIDEN IS IN A TOUGH SPOT IN THE
SENSE OF TRYING TO DISTINGUISH
SYSTEMIC VOTER FRAUD, VOTER
FRAUD THAT COULD ACTUALLY IMPACT
THE ELECTION FROM ISOLATED
EXAMPLES.
AND AGAIN AND AGAIN WE KNOW
THERE HAS BEEN NO EVIDENCE OF
SYSTEMIC VOTER FRAUD.
THERE HAS BEEN NO MAJOR ISSUES
WITH MAIL-IN BALLOTS IN OTHER
ELECTIONS.
THIS ISN'T NEW FOR THIS
ELECTION.
AND YET BIDEN IS GOING TO HAVE
TO MAKE A DECISION HOW MUCH DO I
GET INTO THAT, HOW MUCH DO I TRY
TO PROVE A NEGATIVE?
>> KATE SHAW, ALSO OUR LEGAL
ANALYSIS, ONE OF THE THINGS
WE'VE SEEN AS WE HAVE A SUPREME
COURT CONFIRMATION BATTLE GOING
ON.
THE PRESIDENT SAID ONE OF THE
REASONS HE WANTS AMY CONEY
BARRETT TO BE CONFIRMED SO
QUICKLY IS HE WANTS HER TO
DECIDE ON THESE ELECTION-RELATED
ISSUES.
>> YOU KNOW, THAT'S RIGHT.
TO RETURN TO WHAT YOU WERE
TALKING ABOUT, VICE PRESIDENT
BIDEN HAS A TASK.
PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS BEEN
ATTACKING ABSENTEE VOTING
WITHOUT ANY REAL BASIS IN FACT.
AND YET, YOU HEAR THOSE KIND OF
ACCUSATIONS OFTEN ENOUGH.
MAYBE THEY START TO SEEM TRUE.
SO THERE IS SOME POLLING OUT
THERE THAT SUGGESTS THAT A LOT
OF PEOPLE ARE STARTING TO
BELIEVE THAT THERE COULD BE
FRAUD OR SUPPRESSION IN THE
ELECTION.
IF YOU'RE BIDEN, YOU WORRY
PEOPLE MIGHT CHOOSE JUST TO OPT
OUT ENTIRELY BECAUSE THEY'RE
CONCERNED ABOUT THEIR VOTE NOT
COUNTING.
BIDEN HAS THE TASK TO REASSURE
THE PUBLIC THAT THE ELECTION IS
SECURE, EVEN AS WE KNOW THERE
WILL BE HICCUPS BECAUSE MANY
STATES ARE GOING TO BE
ADMINISTERING, PRESIDENT TRUMP
BROADCASTED HIS SUPPORT FOR AMY
CONEY BARRETT.
THE SUPREME COURT WILL HAVE
NOTHING TO SAY ABOUT THE WINNER
OF THE ELECTION, BUT IF THERE IS
SOME QUESTION IN ONE OR MORE
STATES AND THE SUPREME COURT
COURT IS ASKED TO WEIGH IN, IT
RAISES LEGITIMATELY QUESTIONS IF
THE PRESIDENT'S HAND-PICKED
JUSTICE MAY VOTE FOR HIM IN AN
ELECTION DISPUTE BE.
>> WE'VE SEEN THE SUPREME COURT
STEP IN IN 2000, BUSH V. GORE,
JUSTICE SCALIA STOPPED THE
COUNTING OF BALLOTS IN FLORIDA.
THIS TIME THERE'S THE POTENTIAL
WE'RE GOING TO HAVE TO KIND OF
DISPUTES WE SAW IN FLORIDA IN
SEVERAL STATES.
>> THE FORECAST THIS YEAR, IT
COULD BE THE PERFECT STORM OF
ELECTION CHAOS BECAUSE THERE ARE
MANY STATES, AS YOU POINT OUT,
WHERE THE MARGIN IS SMALL
BECAUSE OF THE PANDEMIC.
SO MANY PEOPLE VOTING BY MAIL IN
WAYS THAT ARE NEW TO MANY
STATES.
MANY STATES HAVE BEEN DOING IT
FOR A LONG TIME.
SOME FIVE STATES DO IT ALL
TOGETHER BY MAIL.
MANY STATES HAVE TACKED ON NEW
VOTING BY MAIL PROCEDURES THAT
HAVE NOT BEEN TESTED.
AND THEN YOU HAVE PRESIDENT
TRUMP TRYING TO DISCREDIT ANY
VOTE BY MAIL.
WE COULD HAVE LAWS WHICH ARE
CONFUSING BY THEIR NATURE TESTED
IN WAYS THEY NEVER HAVE BEEN AND
PERHAPS AN UNCERTAIN RESULT
GOING FOR A LONG TIME.
IT'S IMPORTANT TO NOTE THAT
ELECTION DAY IS WHEN PEOPLE
VOTE.
ELECTION NIGHT HAS NO
CONSTITUTIONAL STATUTORY
MEANING.
>> ESPECIALLY IN SOME OF THE
BIGGEST STATES, WISCONSIN,
MICHIGAN, PENNSYLVANIA, THEY'RE
GOING TO BE COUNTY THE VOTES FOR
AT LEAST A WEEK AFTER ELECTION
DAY, AND THE FACT THAT WE MAY
NOT HAVE A CLEAR RESULT ON
ELECTION NIGHT IS NOT
NECESSARILY A SIGN THAT THERE'S
A CRISIS OR A PROBLEM IN THE
ELECTION SYSTEM.
>> NOT AT ALL.
ELECTION NIGHT IS AN INVENTION
OF THE ELECTRONIC AGE, THE TV
AGE.
MOST OF OUR HISTORY, IT TOOK A
DAY OR TWO.
IT WASN'T UNTIL MARCH IN 1876
WHEN THE WINNER WAS DECIDED.
YOU HAVE ONE PARTY, THE CURRENT
PRESIDENT WHO WANTS TO DISCREDIT
ALL OF THAT COUNTING.
REPUBLICAN SENATOR RICK SCOTT
GAVE A — INTRODUCED A BILL THAT
WOULD STOP THE COUNTING OF EVERY
VOTE IN THE COUNTY WITHIN 24
HOURS OF THE CLOSING OF POLLS IN
THAT STATE.
SO MUCH FOR STATES RIGHTS.
LEGISLATORS IN PENNSYLVANIA
SAYING IF THE COUNT GOES ON TOO
LONG , THIS REPUBLICAN STATE
LEGISLATURE WILL CHOOSE WHO
PENNSYLVANIA VOTES FOR.
THIS IS A DANGEROUS TIME.
>> THE DEBATE IS LESS THAN 10
MINUTES AWAY.
WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

GETTING PULLED INTO THOSE
PERSONAL ATTACKS.
YOU SAW THE NUMBERS, THE
BATTLEGROUND STATES.
JOE BIDEN DOESN'T WANT ANY
UNENFORCED ERRORS TONIGHT.
PRESIDENT TRUMP, WE KNOW THAT ON
THE ATTACK HE'S VERY COMFORTABLE
IN THAT ROLE.
HE SHOWED IT WITH HILLARY
CLINTON.
THE TEST FOR THE PRESIDENT IS
HOW DOES HE GET THE COUNTRY
THROUGH THE PANDEMIC, MONTHS
MORE OF THIS, AND WHAT DOES THE
COUNTRY LOOK LIKE ON THE OTHER
SIDE?
WHAT IS HIS VISION FOR THE NEXT
FOUR YEARS INSTEAD OF THE
ATTACKS ALL NIGHT.
>> LINSEY VLGTSZ WE'VE SEEN
PRESIDENT TRUMP ATTACK JOE
BIDEN'S MENTAL ACUTE.
IS HE GOING TO TRY TO FACT CHECK
TRUMP IN REAL TIME.
>> TRUMP ON OFFENSE ON THE
ISSUES.
HE DOES THAT, HE'LL HAVE A GOOD
NIGHT.
>> WE NEED A STRONG, SURE,
CONFIDENT, STEADY JOE BIDEN.
WE KNOW THAT THIS IS NOT ABOUT
IDEAS.
UNFORTUNATELY IT'S ABOUT
PERSONALITY AND PEOPLE KNOW WHO
TRUMP IS AND IT DOESN'T MATTER.
IF BIDEN APPEARS WEAK, HE MIGHT
LOSE PEOPLE.
I HOPE HE STAYS FOCUSED, SURE,
AND STEADY, PRESIDENTIAL.
>> SARA FAGEN.
HOE
HE NEEDS TO MAKE THE CASE THAT
HE DID A GOOD JOB IN A PANDEMIC.
HIS BIGGEST CHALLENGE IN THE
PANDEMIC HAS BEEN HIS
UNCERTAINTY AT THE PODIUM.
WHEN YOU LOOK AT WHAT THE
ADMINISTRATION HAS DONE STARTING
IN MARCH, THERAPEUTICS, VACCINE,
PPE, HE'S DONE OKAY.
>> RAHM EMANUEL?
>> YOU KNOW, IN 2016 DONALD
TRUMP WAS AN INSTRUMENT FOR
CHANGE FOR PEOPLE'S ANGRY.
IF ALL HE IS IS ANGRY AND COMES
FOR JOE BIDEN WITH NOTHING TO
SAY BUT ANGRY, HE'LL LOSE THIS
DEBATE AND THEN LOSE THIS
ELECTION.
TONIGHT IS HIS LAST STAND.
>> I ASKED KATE WHICH OF THOSE
ATTACKS FROM PRESIDENT TRUMP
SHOULD JOE BIDEN LET GO?
WHICH ONES MUST HE RESPOND TO?
>> I THINK AT THE END OF THE DAY
HE'S GOT TO SAY — LOOK, I CAN
SAY WHATEVER YOU WANT ABOUT YOUR
FAMILY, YOU CAN SAY WHATEVER YOU
WANT ABOUT MY FAMILY, BUT THIS
IS A DEBATE ABOUT THE AMERICAN
PEOPLE AND THEIR FAMILY AND
THEIR FUTURE.
IN 1992, NEW HAMPSHIRE BILL
CLINTON SAID THE HITS ON ME ARE
NOT LIKE THE HITS YOUR KID WILL
TAKE UNLESS WE TURN THE COUNTRY
AROUND.
GO RIGHT TO THE CAMERA, LOOK AT
THEM AND SAY THIS IS YOUR FIGHT
AND I WANT THAT FIGHT FOR YOU.
>> MATTHEW DOWD?
>> I THINK HOW JOE BIDEN HANDLES
DONALD TRUMP, THE BULL IN THE
CHINA SHOP.
IF HE PICKS ONE OR TWO MOMENTS
AS THAT DISRUPTIVE FORCE COMES
AT HIM, ACTS CALM, BUT PICKS A
MOMENT AND FORCIBLY PUSHES BACK
ON THE BULL THAT'S GOING TO BE
WRECKING THE CHINA SHOP, THAT'S
WHAT I'M LOOKING AT.
>> TONIGHT WE'RE IN TROUBLED
LANDS.
WHO COMES ACROSS AS THE DIVIDER
AND CHIEF AND THE UNITER IN
CHIEF.
>> MARTHA, ON THE SPOT.
IF THIS WERE YOU, WHAT WOULD BE
YOUR FIRST QUESTION.
WHAT DO YOU THINK CHRIS
WALLACE'S FIRST QUESTION WILL
BE?
>> I THINK YOU HAVE TO ASK ABOUT
THE TAX STORY.
THAT'S THE MOST RECENT BOMBSHELL
TO HIT.
SO I THINK THAT'S WHAT YOU HAVE
TO ASK.
AND THEN YOU MOVE ON AFTER THAT.
I THINK WE KNOW THAT DONALD
TRUMP WILL BE COMBATIVE.
THE LINE THAT HIT ME FROM DONALD
TRUMP JR. WAS THAT HIS FATHER
HAS TO BE HIS FATHER.
I DON'T THINK YOU'LL REALLY SEE
A DIFFERENT DONALD TRUMP
TONIGHT.
I THINK YOU'LL SEE THE MAN WE
SAW IN 2016 AS WELL BEING
COMBATIVE.
>> DAN ABRAMS?
>> I THINK THE KEY HERE IS GOING
TO BE HOW MUCH JOE BIDEN ENGAGES
WITH THE PRESIDENT'S ATTACKS ON
HIM.
WE KNOW THEY'RE GOING TO BE
PERSONAL.
IT'S GOING TO BE ABOUT HIS SON.
IT'S NOT GOING TO BE ABOUT HIS
RECORD.
AND IT'S NOT JUST GOING TO BE
WHAT HE SAYS.
IT'S GOING TO BE HOW HE SAYS IT.
IS HE CALM?
KEY ISSUES THERE.
>> KATE SHAW?
>> YOU KNOW, DEMOCRATS AREN'T
ALWAYS GREAT AT PLACING THE
SUPREME COURT FRONT AND FROM IN
THESE DEBATES.
BECAUSE OF THE CIRCUMSTANCES, I
THINK THERE'S NO AVOIDING
TALKING ABOUT THE SUPREME COURT
ABOUT THE FUTURE OF LEGAL
ABORTION IN THIS COUNTRY, ABOUT
THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE AND
THE SUPREME COURT IS AT THE
CENTER OF ALL THOSE ISSUES.
>> TERRY MORAN, THE LAST 15
SECONDS.
>> EACH CANDIDATE HAS A PERSONAL
ISSUE HANGING OVER THEIR HEADS.
IS JOE BIDEN TOO OLD?
A LOT OF VOTERS WONDER ABOUT
THAT.
CAN DONALD TRUMP REALLY BE
PRESIDENT OR IS HE JUST A
TWITTER TROLL, GEORGE.
>> THOSE REFUTE BIG QUESTIONS
TONIGHT.
WE'RE JUST 15 SECONDS AWAY FROM
THE FIRST PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE OF
2020.
THAT IS THE SCENE IN CLEVELAND,
OHIO.
WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.
>> WE WILL MAKE AMERICA GREAT
AGAIN.
>> WE'RE IN THE BATTLE FOR THE
SOUL OF THIS
DONALD TRUMP.
>> NO TIME BEFORE HAVE VOTERS
FACED A CLEARER CHOICE BETWEEN
TWO PARTIES.
>> JOE BIDEN.
>> WE ARE A NATION, WHO WE STAND
FOR AND WHAT WE WANT TO BE IS AN
THE BALLOT.
>> FACE-TO-FACE, THE MAIN EVENT
STARTS NOW.
THE FIRST PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE
FROM CASE WESTERN RESERVE
UNIVERSITY AND CLEVELAND CLINIC
IN OHIO AND NEW YORK CITY NOW
REPORTING CHIEF.
>> WELCOME BACK TO THE SPECIAL
COVERAGE OF THIS FIRST
PRESIDENTIAL DEBATE.
DONALD TRUMP AND JOE BIDEN WILL
TAKE THE STAGE FOR 90 MINUTES.
WILL THE CANDIDATES DO ANYTHING
TO CHANGE THE COURSE OF THE
RACE.
PRESIDENT TRUMP IS BEHIND AND
HAS BEEN MFOR MONTHS.
JOE BIDEN IS COMING INTO THE
DEBATE SEASON WITH A 78% CHANCE
OF WINNING THE WHO IT HO US.
THERE RETARE THREE DEBATES FIVE
WEEKS TO GO.
JOHN CARL IS ON THE SCENE IN
CLEVELAND.
>> GEORGE, DONALD TRUMP GOES
INTO THIS DEBATE WITH HIS BACK
AGAINST THE WALL BY EVERY
PUBLICLY AVAILABLE MEASURE HE'S
LOSING THIS RACE.
TRAILING IN THE NATIONAL POLLS.
NO CONSISTENT LEAD IN ANY OF THE
TOP DOZEN MOST COMPETITIVE
BATTLE GROUND STATES.
HE NEEDS TO CHANGE THE DYNAMIC
OF THE RACE AND TONIGHT IS THE
BEST CHANCE FOR HIM TO DO IT.
HE'S BEEN HERE BEFORE FOUR YEARS
AGO HIS CAMPAIGN WAS COLLAPSING
AND HE TURNED IT AROUND IN PART
WITH A DEBATE.
>> JOE BIDEN HAS BEEN HERE
BEFORE, AS WELL, NOT AT THE TOP
OF THE TICKET BUT TWO VICE
PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES.
>> JOE BIDEN HAS NEVER FACED AN
OPPONENT LIKE DONALD TRUMP.
ALL HE HAS TO DO TO WIN IS TELL
THE TRUTH.
IT NOT GOING TO BE THAT SIMPLE.
JOE BIDEN KNOWS DONALD TRUMP IS
GOING TO MAKE THIS PERSONAL AND
GO ON THE ATTACK.
NOT GET DRAGGED DOWN INTO SOME
BRAWL WITH THE PRESIDENT.
JOE BIDEN WILL FIGHT BACK IF HE
MISCONSTRUES HIS RECORD OR GOES
AFTER HIS FAMILY.
I S
HE WANTS TO SPEAK TO THE
AMERICAN PEOPLE AND BE ABOUT
ISSUE AND HIT THE PRESIDENT ON
TAXES, BUSINESS RECORD AND IN
THE MIDST OF THIS PANDEMIC,
HEALTH CARE.
>> WE SAW JOE BIDEN RELEASE TAX
RETURNS TODAY, MARY.
>> HE DID.
JOE BIDEN TRYING TO GET AHEAD TO
DRY CLEAR CONTRAST AND SET THE
TONE FOR THE DEBATE.
HE DID RELEASE HIS TAX RETURNS
DRAWING A CONTRAST WITH THE
PRESIDENT IN A BLOCKBUSTER
REPORTING.
JOE BIDEN LAST YEAR PAID ABOUT
$300,000 IN FEDERAL INCOME
TAXES.
WE DON'T KNOW WHAT THE PRESIDENT
PAID BECAUSE HE'S NOT RELEASED
HIS TAX RETURNS YET.
IT'S LIKELY TO BE THE FIRST
QUESTION HERE, GEORGE.
>> THE MODERATOR CHRIS WALLACE
IS ON THE STAGE NOW AND OUTLINED
SIX TOPICS FOR THE DEBATE
STARTING OUT WITH THE TRUMP AND
BIDEN RECORDS.
THE ECONOMY, COVID, SUPREME
COURT, RACE AND VIOLENCE.
LET'S GO TO CHRIS WALLACE.
>>> GOOD EVENING FROM CASE
WESTERN RESERVE UNIVERSITY AND
THE CLEVELAND CLINIC.
I'M CHRIS WALLACE OF FOX NEWS
AND I WELCOME YOU TO THE FIRST
OF THE 2020 PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES
BETWEEN PRESIDENT DONALD J.
TRUMP AND FORMER VICE PRESIDENT
JOE BIDEN.
THIS DEBATE IS SPONSORED BY THE
COMMISSION ON PRESIDENTIAL
DEBATES.
THE COMMISSION HAS DESIGNED THE
FORMAT, SIX ROUGHLY 15-MINUTE
SEGMENTS WITH TWO-MINUTE ANSWERS
FROM EACH CANDIDATE AND OPEN THE
SEGMENT TO QUESTIONS.
FOR THE RECORD, I CAN ASSURE YOU
NONE OF THE QUESTIONS HAVE BEEN
SHARED WITH THE COMMISSION OR
TWO CANDIDATES.
THIS DEBATE IS BEING CONDUCTED
UNDER HEALTH AND SAFETY
PROTOCOLS DESIGNED BY THE
CLEVELAND CLINIC SERVING AS THE
HEALTH SECURITY ADVISOR TO THE
COMMISSION FOR ALL FOUR DEBATES.
AS A PRECAUTION, BOTH CAMPAIGNS
HAVE AGREED THE CANDIDATES WILL
NOT SHAKE HANDS AT THE BEGINNING
OF THE DEBATE.
THE AUDIENCE PROMISED TO REMAIN
SILENT, NO CHEERS, NO BOOS, NO
EN
ENTER RUPGSS SO WE CAN FOCUS ON
WHAT THE CANDIDATES SAY.
NO NOISE EXCEPT RIGHT NOW WE WE
COME THE REPUBLICAN NOMINEE AND
DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE.
[ APPLAUSE ]
>> HOW ARE YOU DOING?
>> HOW ARE YOU DOING?
>> GENTLEMEN, A LOT OF PEOPLE
HAVE BEEN WAITING IF THIS NIGHT.
LET'S GET GOING.
THE FIRST SUBJECT IS THE SUPREME
COURT.
PRESIDENT TRUMP YOU NOMINATED
CANDIDATE AMY CONEY BEFARRETT T
SUCCEED RUTH BADER GINSBURG ON
THE COURT.
YOU SAY THE CONSTITUTION IS
CLEAR ABOUT YOUR OBLIGATION AND
THE SENATE'S TO CONSIDER A
NOMINEE TO THE COURT.
VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN, YOU SAY
THIS IS AN EFFORT BY THE
PRESIDENT AND REPUBLICANS TO JAM
THROUGH AN APPOINTMENT AND WHAT
YOU CALL AN ABUSE OF POWER.
MY FIRST QUESTION TO BOTH OF YOU
TONIGHT, WHY ARE YOU RIGHT AND
THE ARGUMENT YOU MAKE AND YOUR
OPPONENT WRONG AND WHERE DO YOU
THINK A JUSTICE BARRETT WOULD
TAKE THE COURT?
PRESIDENT TRUMP IN THE FIRST
SEGMENT, YOU GO FIRST, TWO
MINUTES.
>> THANK YOU VERY MUCH, CHRIS.
I WILL TELL YOU VERY SIMPLY, WE
WON THE ELECTION.
ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES.
WE HAVE THE SENATE.
WE HAVE THE WHITE HOUSE.
AND WE HAVE A PHENOMENAL NOMINEE
RESPECTED BY ALL.
TOP, TOP ACADEMIC.
GOOD IN EVERY WAY.
GOOD IN EVERY WAY.
SOME OF HER BIGGEST ENDORSERS
ARE VERY LIBERAL PEOPLE FROM
NOTRE DAME AND OTHER PLACES.
SO I THINK SHE'S GOING TO BE
FANTASTIC.
WE HAVE PLENTY OF TIME.
EVEN IF WE DID IT AFTER THE
ELECTION ITSELF, I HAVE A LOT OF
TIME AFTER THE ELECTION, AS YOU
KNOW.
I THINK THAT SHE WILL BE
OUTSTANDING.
SHE'S GOING TO BE AS GOOD AS
ANYBODY THAT HAS SERVED ON THAT
COURT.
WE REALLY FEEL THAT.
WE HAVE A PROFESSOR AT NOTRE
DAME HIGHLY RESPECTED BY ALL
SAID SHE'S THE SINGLE GREATEST
STUDENT HE'S EVER HAD.
HE'S BEEN A PROFESSOR FOR A LONG
TIME AT A GREAT SCHOOL, AND WE
JUST WON THE ELECTION AND
THEREFORE WE HAVE THE RIGHT TO
CHOOSE HER AND VERY FEW PEOPLE
KNOWINGLY WOULD SAY OTHERWISE.
BY THE WAY, THE DEMOCRATS
WOULDN'T THINK ABOUT NOT DOING
IT.
THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THEY
WOULD TRY AND DO IT FASTER.
THERE IS NO WAY THEY WOULD GIVE
IT UP.
THEY HAD MERIT GARLAND BUT THEY
DIDN'T HAVE THE ELECTION.
THEY WERE STOPPED.
AND PROBABLY THAT WOULD HAPPEN
IN REVERSE ALSO.
DEFINITELY WOULD HAPPEN IN
REVERSE.
SO WE WON THE ELECTION AND WE
HAVE THE RIGHT TO DO IT, CHRIS.
>> PRESIDENT TRUMP, THANK YOU.
SAME QUESTION TO YOU VICE
PRESIDENT BIDEN, YOU HAVE TWO
MINUTES.
>> FIRST OF ALL, THANK YOU FOR
DOING THIS AND LOOKING FORWARD
TO THIS, MR. PRESIDENT.
THE AMERICAN PEOPLE HAVE A RIGHT
TO HAVE A SAY IN WHO THE SUPREME
COURT NOMINEE IS AND THAT OCCURS
WHEN THEY VOTE FOR A UNITED
STATES SENATOR AND WHEN THEY
VOTE FOR THE PRESIDENT OF THE
UNITED STATES.
THEY'RE NOT GOING TO GET THAT
CHANCE NOW BECAUSE WE'RE IN THE
MIDDLE OF AN ELECTION ALREADY.
ELECTION IS ALREADY STARTED.
TENS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE HAVE
ALREADY VOTED.
SO THE THING THAT SHOULD HAPPEN
IS WE SHOULD WAIT.
WE SHOULD WAIT AND SEE WHAT THE
OUTCOME OF THIS ELECTION IS
BECAUSE THAT'S THE ONLY WAY THE
AMERICAN PEOPLE GET TO EXPRESS
THEIR VIEW IS BY WHO THEY ELECT
AS PRESIDENT AND WHO THEY ELECT
AS VICE PRESIDENT.
WHAT IS AT STAKE, THE PRESIDENT
MADE IT CLEAR HE WANTS TO GET
RID OF THE AFFORDABLE CARE ACT.
HE'S BEEN RUNNING ON THAT AND HE
RAN ON THAT AND HAS BEEN
GOVERNING ON THAT.
HE'S IN THE SUPREME COURT RIGHT
NOW TRYING TO GET RID OF THE
AFFORDABLE CARE ACT, WHICH WILL
STRIP 20 MILLION PEOPLE FROM
HAVING INSURANCE, HEALTH
INSURANCE NOW IF IT GOES INTO
COURT AND THE JUSTICE AND I HAVE
NOTHING — I'M NOT OPPOSED TO
THE JUSTICE.
SHE SEEMS LIKE A VERY FINE
PERSON.
SHE'S WRITTEN BEFORE SHE WENT ON
THE BENCH, WHICH IS HER RIGHT,
THAT SHE THINKS THAT AFFORDABLE
CARE ACT IS NOT CONSTITUTIONAL.
THE OTHER THING ON THE COURT AND
STRUCK DOWN WHAT HAPPENS?
WOMEN'S RIGHTS ARE FUND MENTALLY
CHANGED.
ONCE AGAIN, A WOMAN COULD BE
HELD — PAY MORE MONEY BECAUSE
SHE HAS A PREEXISTING CONDITION
OF PREGNANCY.
WE'RE ABLE TO CHARGE A WOMAN
MORE FOR THE SAME PROCEDURE A
MAN GETS AND THAT ENDED WHEN WE
IN FACT PASSED THE AFFORDABLE
CARE ACT.
THERE IS 100 MILLION PEOPLE WITH
PREEXISTING CONDITIONS AND THEY
WILL BE TAKEN AWAY, AS WELL.
THOSE PREEXISTING CONDITIONS,
INSURANCE COMPANIES WILL LOVE
THIS.
IT IS NOT APPROPRIATE TO DO THIS
BEFORE THIS ELECTION.
IF HE WINS THE ELECTION AND THE
SENATE IS DEMOCRAT OR
REPUBLICAN, HE GOES FORWARD.
IF NOT, WE'LL WAIT UNTIL
FEBRUARY.
>> THERE AREN'T 100 MILLION
PEOPLE WITH PREEXISTING
CONDITIONS.
AS FAR AS THE SAY IS CONCERNED,
THE PEOPLE HAD THEIR SAY.
THEY — OKAY.
JUSTICE GINSBURG SAID AT SOME
POINT TEN YEARS AGO OR SO, SHE
SAID A PRESIDENT AND THE SENATE
IS ELECTED FOR A PERIOD OF TIME
BUT A PRESIDENT IS ELECTED FOR
FOUR YEARS.
WE'RE NOT ELECTED FOR THREE
YEARS.
I'M NOT ELECTED FOR THREE YEARS.
WE HAVE THE SENATE.
WE HAVE A PRESIDENT —
>> ELECTED TO THE NEXT ELECTION.
>> DURING THAT PERIOD OF TIME,
DURING THAT PERIOD OF TIME, WE
HAVE AN OPENING.
I'M NOT ELECTED FOR THREE YEARS.
I'M ELECTED FOR FOUR YEARS.
>> THE ELECTION ALREADY
STARTED —
>> JOE, THE 100 MILLION PEOPLE
IS TOTALLY WRONG.
I DON'T KNOW WHERE YOU GOT THAT
NUMBER.
THE BIGGER PROBLEM YOU HAVE IS
THAT YOU'RE GOING TO EXTINGUISH
180 MILLION PEOPLE WITH THEIR
PRIVATE HEALTH CARE THAT THEY'RE
VERY HAPPY WITH.
>> THAT'S SIMPLY NOT TRUE.
>> SOCIALISTS —
>> THIS IS — WE'RE NOW,
GENTLEMEN, WE'RE INTO OPEN
DISCUSSION.
OPEN DISCUSSION, YES, AGREE.
GO AHEAD, VICE PRESIDENT.
>> NUMBER ONE, HE KNOWS THAT
WHAT I PROPOSED.
WHAT I PROPOSED IS THAT WE
EXPAND OBAMACARE AND WE INCREASE
IT.
WE DO NOT WIPE ANY — ONE OF THE
BIG DEBATES WE HAD WITH 23 OF MY
COLLEAGUES TRYING TO WIN THE
NOMINATION THAT I WON WE'RE
SAYING BIDEN WANTED TO ALLOW
PEOPLE TO HAVE PRIVATE INSURANCE
STILL.
THEY CAN.
THEY DO.
THEY WILL UNDER MY PROPOSAL.
>> THAT'S NOT WHAT YOU'VE SAID
AND NOT WHAT THAT PARTY HAS
SAID.
THE PARTY WANTS TO GO SOCIALIST
MEDICINE.
>> MY PARTY IS ME.
RIGHT NOW I AM THE DEMOCRAT
PARTY.
>> THEY NOMINATED YOU, JOE, YOU
KNOW THAT.
>> I'M THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY.
THE PLATFORM —
>> NOT ACCORDING TO HARRIS.
>> WHAT I, IN FACT, APPROVED OF.
WHAT I APPROVED OF.
HERE IS THE DEAL.
THE DEAL IS IT'S GOING TO WIPE
OUT PREEXISTING CONDITIONS.
BY THE WAY, THE 200,000 PEOPLE
THAT HAVE DIED ON HIS WATCH, HOW
MANY OF THOSE HAVE SURVIVED,
THERE IS 7 MILLION PEOPLE THAT
CONTRACTED COVID.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN FOR THEM GOING
FORWARD IF YOU STRIKE DOWN THE
AFFORDABLE CARE ACT?
>> JOE, YOU HAD 308,000 MILITARY
PEOPLE DYING BECAUSE YOU
COULDN'T PROVIDE THEM PROPER
HEALTH CARE IN THE MILITARY.
DON'T TELL ME —
>> I'M HAPPY TO TALK ABOUT —
>> IF YOU WERE HERE, IT WOULDN'T
BE 200, IT WOULD BE 2 MILLION
PEOPLE BECAUSE YOU WERE LATE ON
THE DRAW.
CHINA WAS HEAVILY INFECTED.
YOU WANT ME TO BAN —
>> GENTLEMEN, MR. PRESIDENT.
>> YOU WOULD HAVE BEEN MUCH
LATER, JOE.
>> MR. PRESIDENT.
>> YOU'RE NOT GOING TO BE ABLE
TO SHUT HIM UP.
>> WE'RE GOING TO TALK ABOUT
COVID IN THE NEXT SEGMENT.
>> LET ME FINISH.
POINT IS THAT THE PRESIDENT ALSO
IS OPPOSED TO ROE V WADE.
THAT'S ON THE BALLOT, AS WELL IN
THE COURT.
IN THE COURT.
AND SO THAT'S ALSO AT STAKE
RIGHT NOW.
SO THE ELECTION IS ALL —
>> YOU DON'T KNOW THAT'S ON THE
BALLOT.
WHY IS IT ON THE BALLOT?
THAT'S NOT ON THE BALLOT.
>> IT'S ON THE BALLOT IN THE
COURTS.
>> I DON'T THINK SO.
THERE IS NOTHING HAPPENING
THERE.
>> DONALD, WOULD YOU BE QUIET
FOR A MINUTE?
>> YOU DON'T KNOW HER VIEW ON
ROE V WADE.
YOU DON'T KNOW HER VIEW.
>> WE HAVE A LOT TO UNPACK AND A
LOT OF TIME.
ON HEALTH CARE, AND THEN WE'LL
COME BACK TO ROE V WADE.
>> ALL RIGHT.
>> MR. PRESIDENT, THE SUPREME
COURT WILL HEAR A CASE A WEEK
AFTER THE ELECTION IN WHICH THE
TRUMP ADMINISTRATION ALONG WITH
18 STATE ATTORNEYS GENERAL ARE
SEEKING TO OVERTURN —
>> THAT'S RIGHT.
>> OBAMACARE, TO END OBAMACARE.
>> YOU SPENT —
>> BECAUSE THEY WANT GOOD HEALTH
CARE.
>> IF I MAY ASK THE QUESTION,
SIR.
OVER THE LAST FOUR YEARS, YOU
HAVE PROMISED TO REPEAL AND
REPLACE OBAMACARE BUT YOU HAVE
NEVER IN THESE FOUR YEARS COME
UP WITH A PLAN, A COMPREHENSIVE
PLAN TO REPLACE OBAMACARE.
>> OF COURSE I HAVE.
>> WELL.
>> I HAVE AN INDIVIDUAL MANDATE.
>> I'LL GIVE YOU AN
OPPORTUNITY —
>> I GOT RID OF THE MANDATE —
>> THAT'S NOT A COMPREHENSIVE
PLAN.
>> I DIDN'T ASK ABOUT —
>> CHRIS —
>> LET ME ASK MY QUESTION.
>> I'LL ASK JOE.
THE INDIVIDUAL MANDATE WAS THE
HOST UNPOPULAR —
>> MR. PRESIDENT —
>> I GOT RID OF IT.
WE WILL —
>> MR. PRESIDENT, I'M THE
MODERATOR OF THIS DEBATE AND I
WOULD LIKE YOU TO LET ME ASK MY
QUESTION AND THEN YOU CAN ANSWER
YOUR QUESTION.
>> GO AHEAD.
>> IN THE COURSE OF THESE FOUR
YEARS HAVE NEVER COME UP WITH A
COMPREHENSIVE PLAN TO REPLACE
OBAMACARE AND JUST THIS LAST
THURSDAY, YOU SIGNED A LARGELY
SYMBOLIC EXECUTIVE ORDER TO
PROTECH PEOPLE WITH PREEXISTING
CONDITIONS FIVE DAYS BEFORE THIS
DEBATE.
SO MY QUESTION, SIR, IS WHAT IS
THE TRUMP HEALTH CARE PLAN?
>> WELL, FIRST OF ALL, I GUESS
I'M DEBATING YOU, NOT HIM.
THAT'S OKAY.
I'M NOT SURPRISED.
LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.
THERE IS NOTHING SYMBOLIC.
I'M CUTTING DRUG PRICES.
I'M GOING WITH FAVORED NATIONS,
WHICH NO PRESIDENT HAS THE
COURAGE TO DO BECAUSE YOU'RE
GOING AGAINST BIG PHARMA.
DRUG PRICES WILL BE COMING DOWN
80 OR 90%.
YOU COULD HAVE DONE IT DURING
YOUR 47 YEARS IN GOVERNMENT.
YOU HAVEN'T.
WE'RE CUTTING —
>> HE HAS NOT CUT HEALTH CARE.
>> INSULIN.
IT WAS DESTROYING FAMILIES AND
PEOPLE, THE COST.
I'M GETTING IT FOR SO CHEAP,
IT'S LIKE WATER YOU WANT TO KNOW
THE TRUTH.
SO CHEAP.
TAKE A LOOK AT THE DRUGS WHAT
WE'RE DOING.
PRESCRIPTION DRUG PRICES.
WE'LL ALLOW THE GOVERNORS TO GO
TO OTHER COUNTRIES TO BUY DRUGS
BECAUSE THEY PAY JUST A TINY
FRACTION —
>> THIS IS OPEN DISCUSSION.
>> LET ME —
>> THIS IS BIG STUFF.
>> SIR, YOU'LL BE HAPPY I'M
ABOUT TO PICK UP ON ONE OF YOUR
POINTS TO ASK THE VICE
PRESIDENT, HE POINTS OUT YOU
WOULD LIKE TO ADD A PUBLIC
OPTION TO OBAMACARE.
>> YES.
>> AND THE ARGUMENT HE MAKES AND
REPUBLICANS MAKE IS THAT THAT IS
GOING TO END PRIVATE
INSURANCE —
>> IT IS NOT.
>> IF I CAN ASK THE QUESTION.
IT WILL —
>> THAT'S NOT WHAT YOUR PARTY
SAYS.
>> IT WILL END PRIVATE
INSURANCE —
>> IT DOES NOT.
IT'S ONLY FOR THOSE PEOPLE WHO
ARE SO POOR THEY QUALIFY FOR
MEDICAID THEY CAN GET THAT FREE
IN MOST STATES EXCEPT GOVERNORS
WHO WANT TO DENY PEOPLE WHO ARE
POOR MEDICAID.
ANYONE WHO QUALIFIED FOR
MEDICARE — EXCUSE ME, MEDICAID
WOULD AUTOMATICALLY BE ENROLLED
IN THE PUBLIC OPTION.
THE VAST MAJORITY OF THE
AMERICAN PEOPLE WOULD STILL NOT
BE IN THAT OPTION.
NUMBER ONE.
>> JOE, YOU AGREE WITH BERNIE
SANDERS WHO IS FAR LEFT ON THE
MANIFESTO WE CALL IT THAT GIVES
YOU SOCIALIZED MEDICINE.
>> LOOK, HEY, I'M NOT GOING TO
LISTEN TO HIM.
THE FACT OF THE MATTER IS I BEAT
BERNIE SANDERS —
>> NOT BY MUCH.
>> I BEAT HIM A LOT.
>> NOT BY MUCH.
>> I'M HERE STANDING FACING YOU.
>> ALL HE KNOWS HOW TO DO —
HERE IS THE DEAL.
I GOT VERY LUCKY.
I'LL GET VERY LUCKY TONIGHT, AS
WELL.
TONIGHT I'M GOING TO MAKE
SURE —
>> WITH WHAT?
>> HERE IS THE DEAL.
HERE IS THE DEAL.
THE FACT IS THAT EVERYTHING HE'S
SAYING SO FAR IS SIMPLY A LIE.
I'M NOT HERE TO CALL OUT HIS
LIES.
EVERYBODY KNOWS HE'S A LIAR.
>> YOU AGREE — JOE, YOU'RE THE
LIAR.
LAST IN YOUR CLASS, NOT FIRST IN
YOUR CLASS.
>> OH, GOD.
>> MR. PRESIDENT, CAN YOU LET
HIM FINISH, SIR?
>> HE DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO DO
THAT.
>> YOU'D BE SURPRISED.
YOU'D BE SURPRISED.
GO AHEAD.
>> THE WRONG GUY, THE WRONG
NIGHT, AT THE WRONG TIME.
HERE IS THE DEAL.
>> YOU AGREE WITH BERNIE
SANDERS.
>> THERE IS NO MANIFESTO.
>> LET HIM SPEAK.
>> HE JUST LOST THE LEFT.
>> NUMBER TWO.
>> YOU JUST LOST THE LEFT.
YOU AGREED WITH BERNIE SANDERS
ON A PLAN THAT IS ABSOLUTELY —
>> FOLKS, DO YOU HAVE ANY IDEA
WHAT THIS CLOWN IS DOING?
>> SOCIALIZED MEDICINE.
>> MR. PRESIDENT.
>> I TELL YOU WHAT.
HE IS NOT FOR ANY HELP FOR
PEOPLE NEEDING HEALTH CARE.
BECAUSE —
>> BERNIE.
>> BECAUSE HE IN FACT ALREADY
HAS COST 10 MILLION PEOPLE THEIR
HACK THEY HAD FROM EMPLOYERS
BECAUSE OF HIS RECESSION.
NUMBER ONE.
>> OH, YEAH.
>> THERE ARE 20 MILLION PEOPLE
GETTING HEALTH CARE THROUGH
OBAMACARE NOW THAT HE WANTS TO
TAKE IT AWAY.
HE WON'T EVER LOOK YOU IN THE
EYE AND SAY THAT'S WHAT HE WANTS
TO DO.
TAKE IT AWAY.
>> I WANT TO GIVE YOU BETTER
HEALTH CARE AT A MUCH LOWER
PRICE BECAUSE OBAMACARE IS NO
GOOD.
>> HE DOESN'T KNOW HOW TO DO
THAT.
>> I'VE ALREADY FIXED IT.
I'VE ALREADY FIXED IT TO AN
EXTENT.
>> HE HAS NEVER DONE A SINGLE
THING.
>> YOU MIGHT KNOW BUT PROBABLY
DON'T —
>> GENTLEMEN, YOU REALIZE IF
YOU'RE BOTH SPEAKING AT THE SAME
TIME, LET THE PRESIDENT — GO
AHEAD, SIR.
>> OBAMACARE IS NO GOOD.
WE MADE IT BETTER AND I HAD A
CHOICE TO MAKE VERY EARLY ON.
WE TOOK AWAY THE INDIVIDUAL
MANDATE.
WE GUARANTEED PREEXISTING
CONDITIONS.
BUT TOOK AWAY THE INDIVIDUAL
MANDATE.
>> NOT TRUE.
>> LISTEN, THIS IS THE WAY IT
IS.
THAT DESTROYED — THEY SHOULDN'T
EVEN CALL IT OBAMACARE.
THEY HAD A CHOICE TO MAKE.
DO I LET MY PEOPLE RUN IT REALLY
WELL OR BADLY?
IF I RUN IT BADLY THEY WILL
BLAME HIM.
I WANT TO HELP PEOPLE.
YOU HAVE TO RUN IT SO WELL.
I JUST HAD A MEETING WITH THEM.
THEY SAID THE PROBLEM IS NO
MATTER HOW WELL YOU RUN
OBAMACARE, IT'S A DISASTER.
IT'S TOO EXPENSIVE.
PREMIUMS ARE TOO HIGH.
>> THAT'S WHAT HIS PEOPLE SAID.
>> WE WANT TO GET RID OF IT.
>> I UNDERSTAND BUT I HAVE TO
GIVE YOU ROUGHLY EQUAL TIME.
PLEASE LET THE VIC PRESIDENT
TALK.
>> GOOD.
>> HE HAS NO PLAN FOR HEALTH
CARE.
>> OF COURSE WE DO.
>> PLEASE.
>> HE SENDS OUT WISHFUL
THINKING.
HE HAS EXECUTIVE ORDERS THAT
HAVE NO POWER.
HE HASN'T LOWERED DRUG COSTS FOR
ANYBODY.
HE'S BEEN PROMISING A HEALTH
CARE PLAN SINCE HE GOT ELECTED.
HE HAS NONE LIKE ALMOST
EVERYTHING ELSE HE TALKS ABOUT.
HE DOES NOT HAVE A PLAN.
HE DOESN'T HAVE A PLAN.
AND THE FACT IS, THIS MAN
DOESN'T KNOW WHAT HE'S TALKING
ABOUT.
>> ALL RIGHT.
I HAVE ONE FINAL QUESTION FOR
YOU.
>> SURE.
>> MR. VICE PRESIDENT, IF SENATE
REPUBLICANS — WE WERE TALKING
ORIGINALLY ABOUT THE SUPREME
COURT HERE.
IF SENATE REPUBLICANS GO AHEAD
AND CONFIRM JUSTICE BARRETT,
THERE HAS BEEN TALK ABOUT ENDING
THE FILIBUSTER OR PACKING THE
COURT, ADDING TO THE NINE
JUSTICES THERE.
YOU CALL THIS A DISTRACTION BY
THE PRESIDENT BUT IN FACT, IT
WASN'T BROUGHT UP BY THE
PRESIDENT, IT WAS BROUGHT UP BY
SOME OF YOUR DEMOCRATIC
COLLEAGUES IN THE CONGRESS.
SO MY QUESTION TO YOU IS YOU
HAVE REFUSED IN THE PAST TO TALK
ABOUT IT.
ARE YOU WILLING TO TELL THE
AMERICAN PEOPLE TONIGHT WHETHER
OR NOT YOU WILL SUPPORT EITHER
ENDING THE FILIBUSTER OR PACKING
THE COURT —
>> WHATEVER POSITION I TAKE IN
THAT WILL BE THE ISSUE.
THE ISSUE IS THE AMERICAN PEOPLE
SHOULD SPEAK.
YOU SHOULD GO OUT AND VOTE.
YOU'RE IN VOTING NOW.
VOTE AND LET YOUR SENATORS
KNOW —
>> ARE YOU GOING TO PACK THE
COURT?
>> MAKE SURE YOU LET PEOPLE
KNOW —
>> HE DOESN'T WANT TO ANSWER THE
QUESTION.
>> I'M NOT GOING TO ANSWER THE
QUESTION.
>> WHY WOULDN'T YOU ANSWER THAT
QUE
QUESTION.
>> RADICAL LEFT.
>> WILL YOU SHUT UP, MAN?
>> GENTLEMEN, I THINK WE'VE
ENDED THIS.
>> PACK THE COURT OR NOT?
>> WE HAVE ENDED THIS SEGMENT.
WE'LL MOVE ONTO THE SECOND
SEGMENT.
>> THAT WAS REALLY A PRODUCTIVE
SEGMENT, WASN'T IT?
KEEP YAPPING, MAN.
>> THE PEOPLE UNDERSTAND, JOE.
>> THEY SHOULD.
>> 47 YEARS YOU'VE DONE NOTHING.
THEY UNDERSTAND.
>> ALL RIGHT.
THE SECOND SUBJECT IS COVID-19
WHICH IS AN AWFULLY SERIOUS
SUBJECT, SO LET'S TRY TO BE
SERIOUS ABOUT IT.
WE HAVE HAD MORE THAN 7 MILLION
CASES OF CORONAVIRUS IN THE
UNITED STATES AND MORE THAN
200,000 PEOPLE HAVE DIED.
EVEN AFTER WE PRODUCE A VACCINE,
EXPERTS SAY THAT IT COULD BE
MONTHS OR EVEN YEARS BEFORE WE
COME BACK TO ANYTHING
APPROACHING NORMAL.
MY QUESTION FOR BOTH OF YOU IS
BASED ON WHAT YOU HAVE SAID AND
DONE SO FAR AND WHAT YOU HAVE
SAID YOU WOULD DO STARTING IN
2021, WHY SHOULD THE AMERICAN
PEOPLE TRUST YOU MORE THAN YOUR
OPPONENT TO DEAL WITH THIS
PUBLIC HEALTH CRISIS GOING
FORWARD IN THIS CASE, THE
QUESTION GOES TO YOU FIRST, SIR.
TWO MINUTES UNINTERRUPTED.
>> GOOD LUCK.
200,000 DEAD.
AS YOU SAID OVER 7 MILLION
INFECTED IN THE UNITED STATES.
WE IN FACT HAVE 5% OR 4% OF THE
WORLD'S POPULATION.
20% OF THE DEATHS.
40,000 PEOPLE A DAY ARE
CONTRACTING COVID.
IN ADDITION TO THAT, ABOUT
BETWEEN 750 AND 1,000 PEOPLE A
DAY ARE DYING.
WHEN HE WAS PRESENTED WITH THAT
NUMBER, HE SAID IT IS WHAT IT
IS.
IT IS WHAT IT IS BECAUSE YOU ARE
WHO YOU ARE.
THAT'S WHY IT IS.
THE PRESIDENT HAS NO PLAN.
HE HASN'T LAID OUT ANYTHING.
HE KNEW ALL THE WAY BACK IN
FEBRUARY HOW SERIOUS THIS CRISIS
WAS.
HE KNEW IT WAS A DEADLY DISEASE.
WHAT DID HE DO?
HE'S ON TAPE ACRE KNOWLEDGING HE
KNEW IT.
HE SAID HE DIDN'T TELL US OR
GIVE PEOPLE A WARNING BECAUSE HE
DIDN'T WANT TO PANIC THE
AMERICAN PEOPLE.
YOU DON'T PANIC.
HE PANICKED.
IN ADDITION TO THAT, WHAT DID HE
DO?
HE WENT IN AND HE — WE WERE
INSISTING THAT THE CHINESE —
THE PEOPLE WE HAD ON THE GROUND
IN CHINA SHOULD BE ABLE TO GO TO
WUHAN AND DETERMINE FOR
THEMSELVES HOW DANGEROUS THIS
WAS.
HE DID NOT EVEN ASK XI TO DO
THAT.
HE TOLD US WHAT A GREAT JOB XI
IS DOING.
HE SAID WE OWE HIM A DEBT OF
GRATITUDE FOR BEING TRANSPARENT
WITH US.
WHAT DID HE DO THEN?
NOTHING.
HE WAITED AND WAITED AND WAITED.
HE STILL DOESN'T HAVE A PLAN.
I LAID OUT —
>> SIR, HIS TWO MINUTES.
>> — WHAT WE SHOULD BE DOING
AND LAID OUT AGAIN IN JULY WHAT
WE SHOULD BE DOING.
WE SHOULD BE PROVIDING ALL THE
PROTECTIVE GEAR POSSIBLE.
WE SHOULD BE PROVIDING THE MONEY
THE HOUSE HAS PASSED IN ORDER TO
BE ABLE TO GO OUT AND GET PEOPLE
THE HELP THEY NEED TO KEEP THEIR
BUSINESSES OPEN, OPEN SCHOOLS
THAT COST A LOT OF MONEY.
YOU SHOULD GET OUT OF YOUR
BUNKER AND GET OUT OF THE SAND
TRAP AND GET IN YOUR GOLF COURSE
AND GO IN THE OVAL OFFICE AND
BRING TOGETHER THE DEMOCRATS AND
REPUBLICANS AND FUND WHAT NEEDS
TO BE DONE NOW TO SAVE LIVES.
>> SO —
>> YOU HAVE TWO MINUTES, SIR.
>> IF WE WOULD HAVE LISTENED TO
YOU, THE COUNTRY WOULD HAVE BEEN
LEFT WIDE OPEN.
MILLIONS OF PEOPLE WOULD HAVE
DIED, NOT 200,000 AND ONE PERSON
IS TOO MUCH.
IT'S CHINA'S FAULT.
IT SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED.
THEY STOPPED IT FROM GOING IN.
CHINA'S FAULT.
YOU DON'T KNOW HOW MANY PEOPLE
DIED IN CHINA OR RUSSIA.
YOU DON'T KNOW HOW MUCH PEOPLE
DIED IN INDIA.
THEY DON'T EXACTLY GIVE YOU A
STRAIGHT COUNT JUST SO YOU
UNDERSTAND.
IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT WE'VE DONE.
I CLOSED IT.
HE SAID HE'S XENAPHOBIC —
>> IT'S HIS TWO MINUTES.
>> YOU DIDN'T THINK WE SHOULD
CLOSE THE COUNTRY BECAUSE IT WAS
TERRIBLE.
YOU WOULDN'T HAVE CLOSED IT FOR
ANOTHER TWO MONTHS.
BY MY DOING IT EARLY, DR. FAUCI
SAID PRESIDENT TRUMP SAVED
THOUSANDS OF LIVES.
MANY OF YOUR DEMOCRAT GOVERNORS
SAID PRESIDENT TRUMP DID A
PHENOMENAL JOB.
WE WORKED WITH THE GLOVE —
REALLY?
GO TAKE A LOOK.
THE GOVERNOR SAID I DID A
PHENOMENAL JOB.
MOST OF THEM SAID THAT.
IN FACT, PEOPLE THAT WOULD NOT
BE NECESSARILY ON MY SIDE SAID
THAT.
PRESIDENT TRUMP DID A PHENOMENAL
JOB.
WE DID.
WE GOT THE GOWNS.
WE GOT THE MASKS.
WE MADE THE VENTILATORS.
YOU WOULDN'T HAVE MADE
VENTILATORS AND WE'RE WEEKS AWAY
FROM A VACCINE.
WE'RE DOING THERAPEUTICS
ALREADY.
FEWER PEOPLE ARE DYING WHEN THEY
GET SICK, FAR FEWER PEOPLE ARE
DYING.
WE'VE DONE A GREAT JOB.
THE ONLY THING I HAVEN'T DONE A
GOOD JOB THAT'S BECAUSE OF THE
FAKE NEWS, NO MATTER WHAT YOU
SAY TO THEM, THEY GIVE YOU BAD
PRESS.
IT'S FAKE NEWS.
THEY GIVE YOU GOOD PRESS, THEY
GIVE ME BAD PRESS BECAUSE THAT'S
THE WAY IT IS UNFORTUNATELY.
LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING.
I DON'T CARE.
I GOT NEWS TO IT.
YOU COULD NEVER HAVE DONE THE
JOB THAT WE DID.
YOU DON'T HAVE IT IN YOUR BLOOD.
YOU COULD HAVE NEVER DONE THAT
JOB.
>> I KNOW HOW TO DO THE JOB.
I KNOW HOW TO GET THE JOB —
>> YOU DIDN'T DO WELL ON THE
SWINE FLU.
H1N1 YOU WERE A DISASTER.
>> 14,000 —
>> DISASTER.
>> 14,000 PEOPLE DIED —
>> A VERY —
>> SIR, YOU MADE —
>> FAR LESS LETHAL DISEASE.
>> YOU MADE A POINT.
LET HIM ANSWER.
>> THERE IS NO, WE DIDN'T SHUT
DOWN THE ECONOMY.
THIS IS HIS ECONOMY.
HE SHUT IT DOWN.
THE REASON IT SHUT DOWN BECAUSE
LOOK, YOU FOLKS AT HOME, HOW
MANY OF YOU GOT UP THIS MORNING
AND HAD AN EMPTY CHAIR AT THE
KITCHEN TABLE BECAUSE SOMEONE
DIED OF COVID?
HOW MANY OF YOU ARE IN A
SITUATION WHERE YOU LOST YOUR
MOM OR DAD AND YOU COULDN'T EVEN
SPEAK TO THEM, A NURSE HOLDING A
PHONE UP SO YOU COULD IN FACT
SAY GOOD-BYE.
>> YOU WOULD HAVE LOST FAR MORE
PEOPLE.
FAR MORE PEOPLE.
>> BY THE WAY —
>> MONTHS LATE.
>> HIS OWN CDC DIRECTOR SAYS WE
COULD LOST AS MANY AS ANOTHER
200,000 PEOPLE BETWEEN NOW AND
THE END OF THE YEAR AND HE HELD
UP AND SAID IF WE JUST WEAR AS
M
MASK, WE CAN SAVE HALF THE
NUMBERS.
JUST A MASK.
IN ERM THE — TERMS OF THE
NOTION OF A VACCINE.
>> JOHNSON & JOHNSON, PFIZER.
>> GENTLEMEN, LET ME MOVE ON TO
QUESTIONS ABOUT THE FUTURE
BECAUSE YOU BOTH HAVE TOUCHED ON
ONE OF THE — TWO OF THE
QUESTIONS I'M GOING TO ASK.
FOCUSSING ON THE FUTURE FIRST.
PRESIDENT TRUMP, YOU HAVE
REPEATEDLY EITHER CONTRADICTED
OR BEEN AT ODDS WITH SOME OF
YOUR GOVERNMENT'S OWN TOP
SCIENTISTS.
THE WEEK BEFORE LAST, THE HEAD
OF THE CENTERS FOR DISEASE
CONTROL DR. REDFIELD SAID IT
WOULD BE SUPPER MMER BEFORE THE
VACCINE WOULD BE GENERALLY
AVAILABLE TO THE PUBLIC.
YOU SAID HE WAS CONFUSED AND
MISTAKEN.
THOSE WERE YOUR TWO WORDS BUT
THE HEAD OF YOUR OPERATION WARP
SPEED HAS SAID EXACTLY THE SAME
THING.
ARE THEY BOTH WRONG?
>>.
>> I'VE SPOKEN TO THE COMPANIES.
I'VE SPOKEN TO PFIZER AND ALL OF
THE PEOPLE YOU HAVE TO SPEAK TO.
WE HAVE MODERNA AND JOHNSON &
JOHNSON AND BECOME POLITICAL.
THE LEFT —
>> SO YOU'RE HEAD OF THE
OPERATION WARP SPEED.
>> I DISAGREE WITH HIM.
I DISAGREE WITH BOTH OF THEM.
HE DIDN'T SAY THAT.
HE SAID IT COULD BE MUCH SOONER.
I HAD HIM IN MY OFFICE TWO DAYS
AGO.
>> HE TALKED ABOUT THE SUMMER
BEFORE IT'S GENERALLY AVAILABLE.
>> HE SAID IT'S A POSSIBILITY
WE'LL HAVE THE ANSWER BEFORE
NOVEMBER 1st.
IT COULD ALSO BE AFTER THAT.
>> GENERALLY AVAILABLE.
>> WE'LL DELIVER IT RIGHT AWAY.
WE HAVE THE MILITARY SET UP.
THEY ARE ALL SET UP.
WE HAVE THE MILITARY THAT
DELIVERS SOLDIERS AND THEY CAN
DO 200,000 A DAY.
THEY'RE GOING TO BE —
>> THIS IS THE SAME MAN THAT
TOLD YOU BY EASTER THIS WOULD BE
GONE AWAY BY THE WARM WEATHER,
IT WOULD BE GONE.
LIKE A MIRACLE.
BY THE WAY, MAYBE YOU COULD
INJECT BLEACH INTO YOUR ARM AND
THAT WOULD TAKE CARE OF IT.
>> SARCASTICALLY.
YOU KNOW THAT.
THAT WAS SAID SARCASTICALLY.
>> HERE IS THE DEAL.
THIS MAN IS TALKING ABOUT A
VACCINE.
EVERY SERIOUS COMPANY IS TALKING
ABOUT MAYBE HAVING A VACCINE
DONE BY THE END OF THE YEAR, BUT
THE DISTRIBUTION OF THAT VACCINE
WILL NOT OCCUR UNTIL SOMETIME
BEGINNING OR MIDDLE OF NEXT YEAR
TO GET IT OUT, IF WE GET THE
VACCINE AND PRAY GOD WE WILL.
PRAY GOD WE WILL.
>> MR. VICE PRESIDENT —
>> YOU'LL HAVE THE VACCINE
SOONER THAN THAT.
>> I WANT TO PICK UP ON THE
QUESTION.
YOU SAY THE PUBLIC CAN TRUST THE
SCIENTISTS BUT NOT PRESIDENT
TRUMP.
IN FACT YOU SAID THAT AGAIN
TONIGHT.
YOU'RE RUNNING MATE SENATOR
HARRIS GOES FURTHER SAYING
PUBLIC HEALTH EXPERTS QUOTE WILL
BE MUZZLED, WILL BE SUPPRESSED.
GIVEN THE FACT THAT POLLS
ALREADY SHOW THAT PEOPLE ARE
CONCERNED ABOUT THE VACCINE AND
RELUCTANT TO TAKE IT, ARE YOU
AND YOUR RUNNING MATE SENATOR
HARRIS CONTRIBUTING TO THAT
FEAR?
>> NO MORE THAN THE QUESTION YOU
JUST ASKED.
YOU POINTED OUT.
HE PUTS PRESSURE AND DISAGREES
WITH HIS OWN SCIENTISTS.
>> YOUR SAYING —
>> EVERYBODY KNOWS —
>> SENATOR HARRIS SAYS YOU CAN'T
TRUST THE SIGN 'TIS.
>> YOU CAN TRUST THE SCIENTISTS.
>> SHE SAID THE PUBLIC HEALTH —
>> SHE DID SAY THAT.
>> WILL BE MUZZLED, WILL BE SUP
PRESSED.
>> THAT'S WHAT HE'S GOING TO TRY
TO DO.
THERE IS MILLIONS OF SCIENTISTS,
THOUSANDS OF SCIENTISTS OUT
THERE LIKE HERE AT THIS GREAT
HOSPITAL THAT DON'T WORK FOR
HIM.
THEIR JOB DOESN'T DEPEND ON HIM.
THEY'RE THE PEOPLE AND BY THE
WAY —
>> SPOKE TO THE SCIENTISTS IN
CHARGE.
>> BY THE WAY —
>> THEY WILL HAVE THE VACCINE
VERY SOON.
>> IF YOU BELIEVE FOR A MOMENT
WHAT HE'S TELLING YOU IN LIGHT
OF ALL THE LIES HE'S TOLD YOU
ABOUT IT, PEOPLE DIED AND A LOT
MORE ARE GOING TO DIE UNLESS HE
GETS SMARTER.
>> MR. PRESIDENT, DID YOU USE
THE WORD SMART?
SO YOU SAID YOU WENT TO DELAWARE
ST
STATE?
YOU WERE THE LOWEST IN YOUR
CLASS.
DON'T EVER USE THE WORD SMART
WITH ME.
DON'T USE THAT WORD.
>> GIVE ME A BREAK.
>> THERE IS NOTHING SMART ABOUT
YOU.
47 YEARS YOU'VE DONE NOTHING.
LET ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, JOE.
IF YOU WOULD HAVE HAD THE CHARGE
OF WHAT I WAS PUT THROUGH.
I HAD TO CLOSE THE GREATEST
ECONOMY IN THE HISTORY OF OUR
COUNTRY AND NOW IT'S BEING BUILT
AGAIN.
>> SEE —
>> WE'LL GO TO THE ECONOMY IN
THE NEXT SEGMENT, SIR.
>> OKAY.
>> IT'S GOING UP FAST.
>> WHEN IT COMES TO HOW THE
VIRUS IS HANDLED SO FAR, THE TWO
OF YOU HAVE TAKEN DIFFERENT
APPROACHES.
THIS WILL AFFECT HOW THE VIRUS
IS HANDLED GOING FORWARD BY
WHICHEVER OF YOU ENDS UP
BECOMING THE NEXT PRESIDENT.
I WANT TO QUICKLY GO THROUGH
SEVERAL OF THOSE.
REOPENINGS, VICE PRESIDENT
BIDEN, YOU HAVE BEEN MUCH MORE
RELUCTANT THAN PRESIDENT TRUMP
ABOUT REOPENING THE ECONOMY AND
SCHOOLS, WHY, SIR?
>> BECAUSE HE DOESN'T HAVE A
PLAN.
IF I WERE RUNNING, I KNOW THE
PLAN.
YOU GOT TO PROVIDE THESE
BUSINESSES THE ABILITY TO HAVE
THE MONEY TO REOPEN WITH THE PPE
AS WELL AS WITH THE SANITATION
THEY NEED.
YOU HAVE TO PROVIDE —
>> PELOSI.
>> WILL HE JUST SHUSH FOR A
MINUTE?
>> TELL IT TO PELOSI.
SCHUMER.
CHUCK.
>> NANCY PELOSI AND SCHUMER HAVE
A PLAN.
HE WON'T EVEN MEET WITH THEM.
THE REPUBLICANS WON'T MEET IN
THE SENATE.
>> OKAY.
>> HE SITS IN HIS GOLF COURSE.
I MEAN, LITERALLY THINK ABOUT
IT.
>> YOU PROBABLY PLAY MORE THAN I
DO, JOE.
>> WHAT ABOUT THE QUESTION OF
REOPENINGS AND THE FACT —
>> HE WANTS TO SHUT DOWN THIS
COUNTRY.
AND I WANT TO KEEP IT OPEN.
AND WE —
>> SHUT IT —
>> LET ME SHUT YOU DOWN FOR A
SECOND, JOE, ONE SECOND.
WE WANT TO — HE WANTS TO SHUT
DOWN THE COUNTRY.
WE JUST WENT THROUGH IT.
WE HAD TO BECAUSE WE DIDN'T KNOW
ANYTHING ABOUT THE DISEASE.
NOW WE FOUND THAT ELDERLY PEOPLE
WITH HEART PROBLEMS AND DIABETES
AND DIFFERENT PROBLEMS ARE VERY,
VERY VULNERABLE.
WE LEARNED A LOT.
YOUNG CHILDREN AREN'T.
EVEN YOUNGER PEOPLE AREN'T.
WE'VE LEARNED A LOT.
HE WANTS TO SHUT IT DOWN.
MORE PEOPLE WILL BE HURT BY
CONTINUING, IF YOU LOOK AT
PENNSYLVANIA, IF YOU LOOK AT
CERTAIN STATES THAT HAVE BEEN
SHUT DOWN, THEY HAVE DEMOCRAT
GOVERNORS ALL.
ONE OF THE REASONS THEY SHUT
DOWN BECAUSE THEY WANT TO KEEP
IT SHUT DOWN UNTIL AFTER THE
ELECTION NOVEMBER 3rd.
>> I'LL GO TO ANOTHER —
>> IT'S POLITICAL.
>> I GOT —
>> JOE'S STATES —
>> GENTLEMEN.
>> THOSE STRATES AREN'T DOING
WELL THAT SHUT DOWN.
>> I WANT TO RESPOND.
>> YOU HAVE BEGUN TO
INCREASINGLY QUESTION THE
EFFECTIVENESS OF MASKS AS A
DISEASE PREVENTER AND IN FACT,
RECENTLY YOU CITED THE ISSUE OF
WAITERS TOUCHING THEIR MASKS AND
TOUCHING PLATES.
ARE YOU QUESTIONING —
>> NO, I THINK MASKS ARE OKAY.
YOU HAVE TO UNDERSTAND, IF YOU
LOOK — I HAVE A MASK RIGHT
HERE.
I PUT A MASK ON WHEN I THINK I
NEED IT.
TONIGHT IS AN EXAMPLE EVERYBODY
HAD A TEST AND YOU'VE HAD SOCIAL
DISTANCING AND ALL OF THE THINGS
YOU HAVE TO BUT —
>> I —
>> I WEAR MASKS WHEN NEEDED.
I DON'T WEAR MASKS LIKE HIM
EVERY TIME YOU SEE HIM HE HAS A
MASK.
HE COULD BE SPEAKING 200 FEET
AWAY AND HE SHOWS UP WITH THE
BIGGEST MASK I'VE EVER SEEN.
I WILL SAY —
>> VICE PRESIDENT 3W50IDEN, GO
AHEAD, SIR.
>> LOOK, THE WAY TO OPEN
BUSINESSES IS GIVE THEM THE WITH
WALL W
— WHERE WITH ALL TO OPEN.
>> I WAS ASKING ABOUT MASKS.
>> HIS HEAD OF THE CDC SAID IF
EVERYBODY WORE MASKS AND SOCIAL
DISTANCE BETWEEN NOW AND JANUARY
WE WOULD SAVE 100,000 LIVES.
IT MATTERS.
IT MATTERS.
>> THEY SAY OPPOSITE.
>> NO SERIOUS PERSON SAID THE
OPPOSITE.
NO SERIOUS PERSON —
>> ALL RIGHT.
I WANT TO ASK —
>> FAUCI.
>> DR. FAUCI —
>> WE HAVE A MINUTE LEFT IN THE
SEGMENT.
>> HE CHANGED HIS MIND AND SAID
MASKS ARE GOOD.
I'M OKAY WITH MASKS.
>> I WANT TO ASK ABOUT ONE LAST
SUBJECT BECAUSE YOUR DIFFERENT
APPROACHES EVEN AFFECTED THE WAY
THAT YOU HAVE CAMPAIGNED.
PRESIDENT TRUMP YOU'RE HOLDING A
LARGE RALLIES WITH CROWDS PACKED
TOGETHER.
THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE.
>> OUTSIDE.
>> OUTSIDE, YES, SIR.
AGREED.
VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN, YOU ARE
HOLDING MUCH SMALLER EVENTS —
>> BECAUSE NOBODY WILL SHOW UP.
>> PEOPLE WITH MASKS.
>> NOBODY SHOWS UP TO HIS
RALLIES.
>> WHILE YOU'RE HOLDING THE BIG
RALLIES, WHY YOU'RE NOT, YOU GO
FIRST, SIR.
>> PEOPLE WANT TO HEAR WHAT I
HAVE TO SAY.
>> I HAVE 25, 35,000 PEOPLE SHOW
UP AT AIRPORTS.
WE USE AIRPLANES.
>> ARE YOU NOT WORRIED ABOUT —
>> WELL, SO FAR WE HAVE HAD NO
PROBLEM WHATSOEVER.
IT'S OUTSIDE THAT'S A BIG
DIFFERENCE ACCORDING TO THE
EXPERTS.
WE DO THEM OUTSIDE.
WE HAVE TREMENDOUS CROWDS AS YOU
SEE.
LITERALLY ON 24 HOURS NOTICE AND
JOE DOES THE CIRCLES AND HAS
THREE PEOPLE.
>> A REPORTER CAME TO ASK HIM A
QUESTION AND HE SAID STAND BACK,
PUT ON A MASK.
HAVE YOU BEEN TESTED?
I'M WAY FAR AWAY FROM THOSE
OTHER PEOPLE.
THAT'S WHAT HE SAID.
HE'S NOT WORRIED ABOUT YOU.
HE'S NOT WORRIED ABOUT THE
PEOPLE OUT THERE.
>> NO NEGATIVE EFFECTS.
WE'VE HAD NO NEGATIVE EFFECT AND
35, 40,000 PEOPLE.
>> QUICKLY FINISH UP BECAUSE I
WANT TO MOVE ON.
>> YES, I WOULD.
HE'S BEEN TOTALLY IRRESPONSIBLE
THE WAY HE HANDLED THE SOCIAL
DISTANCING AND PEOPLE WEARING
MASKS.
BASICALLY ENCOURAGING THEM NOT
TO.
>> ALL RIGHT.
>> HE'S A FOOL ON THIS.
>> IF YOU COULD GET THE CROWDS,
YOU WOULD HAVE DONE THE SAME BUT
YOU CAN'T.
NOBODY CARES.
NOBODY CARES.
>> GENTLEMEN, CAN WE MOVE ONTO
THE ECONOMY?
>> YES.
>> THE ECONOMY IS, I THINK, FAIR
TO SAY RECOVERING FASTER THAN
EXPECTED FROM THE SHUTDOWN.
>> MUCH FASTER.
>> IN THE SECOND QUARTER.
THE UNEMPLOYMENT RATE FELL TO
8.4% LAST MONTH.
THE FEDERAL RESERVE SAYS THE HIT
TO GROWTH, WHICH IS GOING TO BE
THERE IS NOT GOING TO BE NEARLY
AS VAGUE AS THEY HAD EXPECTED.
PRESIDENT TRUMP YOU SAY WE ARE
IN A V SHAPED RECOVERY.
VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN, YOU SAY
IT'S MORE OF A K SHAPE.
WHAT DIFFERENCE DOES THAT MEAN
TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE IN TERMS
OF THE ECONOMY, PRESIDENT TRUMP,
IN THIS SEGMENT, YOU GO FIRST.
>> WE BUILT THE GREATEST ECONOMY
IN HISTORY.
WE CLOSED IT DOWN BECAUSE OF THE
CHINA PLAGUE.
WHEN THE PLAGUE CAME, WE CLOSED
IT DOWN WHICH WAS HARD S
PSYCHOLOGICALLY TO DO.
2 MILLION PEOPLE WOULD HAVE BEEN
DEAD INSTEAD OF 204,000 PEOPLE
IS TOO MUCH.
ONE PERSON IS TOO MUCH.
SHOULD HAVE NEVER HAPPENED FROM
CHINA.
WHAT HAPPENED IS WE CLOSED IT
DOWN AND NOW WE'RE REOPENING AND
WE'RE DOING RECORD BUSINESS.
WE HAD 10.4 MILLION PEOPLE IN A
FOUR-MONTH PERIOD THAT WE'VE PUT
BACK INTO THE WORK FORCE.
THAT'S A RECORD THE LIKES OF
WHICH NOBODY HAS SEEN BEFORE AND
HE WANTS TO CLOSE DOWN — HE
WILL SHUT IT DOWN AGAIN AND
DESTROY THIS COUNTRY.
YOU KNOW, A LOT OF PEOPLE
BETWEEN DRUGS AND ALCOHOL AND
DEPRESSION, WHEN YOU START
SHUTTING IT DOWN, YOU TAKE A
LOOK WHAT IS HAPPENING AT
DEMOCRAT-RUN STATES WHERE THEY
HAVE TOUGH SHUTDOWNS AND I'M
TELLING YOU IT'S BECAUSE THEY
DON'T WANT TO OPEN IT, ONE OF
THEM CAME OUT LAST WEEK.
YOU SAW THAT.
WE'LL OPEN UP ON NOVEMBER 9th.
WHY NOVEMBER 9th?
AFTER THE ELECTION.
THEY THINK THEY'RE HURTING US
KEEPING THEM CLOSED.
THEY ARE YOU ARE THE HURTING
PEOPLE.
PEOPLE KNOW WHAT TO DO.
THEY CAN SOCIAL DISTANCE, WASH
HANDS, OPEN MASKS.
THEY HAVE TO OPEN STATES UP.
WHEN YOU LOOK AT NORTH CAROLINA.
THESE GOVERNORS ARE UNDER SIEGE.
PENNSYLVANIA, MICHIGAN AND A
COUPLE OF OTHERS, YOU GOT TO
OPEN THESE STATES UP.
IT NOT FAIR.
YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT ALMOST LIKE
BEING IN PRISON AND YOU LOOK AT
WHAT IS GOING ON WITH DIVORCE,
LOOK AT WHAT IS GOING ON WITH
ALCOHOLISM AND DRUGS.
I
IT'S A VERY, VERY SAD THING AND
HE'LL CLOSE DOWN THE WHOLE
COUNTRY AND DESTROY IT.
OUR COUNTRY IS COMING BACK
INCREDIBLY WELL.
SETTING RECORDS AS IT DOES.
WE DON'T NEED SOMEBODY TO COME
IN AND SAY LET'S SHUT IT DOWN.
>> ALL RIGHT.
YOUR TWO MINUTES, SIR.
WE'RE NOW MOVING TO YOU.
AS I SAID POSING THE QUESTION,
THE PRESIDENT SAYS IT'S A V
SHAPE RECOVERY, YOU SAY IT'S A K
SHAPED RECOVERY.
WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
>> THE DIFFERENCE IS
MILLIONAIRES AND BILLIONAIRES
LIKE HIM IN THE MIDDLE OF THE
COVID CRISIS HAVE DONE WELL.
ANOTHER BILLIONAIRE MADE ANOTHER
$300 BILLION.
BECAUSE OF HIS TAX PROPOSAL AND
HE ONLY FOCUSSED ON THE MARKET.
BUT YOU FOLKS AT HOME, YOU FOLKS
LIVING IN SCRANTON AND ALL THE
SMALL TOWNS AND WORKING CLASS
TOWNS IN AMERICA, HOW ARE YOU
DOING?
THIS GUY PAID —
>> WELL.
>> — $750 IN TAXES.
>> YOU'VE AGREED TO THE TWO
MINUTES.
PLEASE LET HIM HAVE IT.
>> DO I GET MY TIME BACK?
THE FACT IS THAT HE HAS IN FACT
WORKED ON THIS IN A WAY HE'LL BE
THE FIRST PRESIDENT OF THE
UNITED STATES TO LEAVE OFFICE
HAVING FEWER JOBS IN HISSED A
MI
— ADMINISTRATION THAN WHEN HE
BECAME PRESIDENT.
FEWER JOBS.
FIRST ONE IN AMERICAN HISTORY.
SECONDLY, THE PEOPLE WHO HAVE
LOST THEIR JOBS ARE THOSE PEOPLE
WHO HAVE BEEN ON THE FRONT
LINES.
THOSE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN
SAVING OUR LIVES.
THOSE PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN OUT
THERE DYING.
PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN PUTTING
THEMSELVES IN A WAY TO MAKE SURE
THAT WE COULD ALL TRY TO MAKE
IT.
THE IDEA THAT HE IS INSISTING
THAT WE GO FORWARD AND OPEN WHEN
YOU HAVE ALMOST HALF THE STATES
IN AMERICA WITH A SIGNIFICANT
INCREASE IN COVID DEATHS AND
CASES IN THE UNITED STATES OF
AMERICA AND HE WANTS TO OPEN IT
UP MORE.
WHY DOES HE WANT TO OPEN IT UP?
WHY DOESN'T HE TAKE CARE — YOU
CAN'T FIX THE ECONOMY UNTIL YOU
FIX THE COVID CRISIS AND HE HAS
NO INTENTION OF DOING ANYTHING
ABOUT MAKING IT BETTER FOR
YOU-ALL AT HOME IN TERMS OF YOUR
HEALTH AND YOUR SAFETY.
SCHOOLS, WHY AREN'T SCHOOLS
OPEN?
IT COSTS A LOT OF MONEY TO OPEN
SAFELY.
YOU KNOW, THEY WERE GOING TO
GIVE THE TEACHERS AND SCHOOL
STUDENTS MASKS.
THEN THEY DECIDED NO, CAN'T DO
THAT BECAUSE IT'S NOT A NATIONAL
EMERGENCY.
NOT A NATIONAL EMERGENCY.
THEY HAVE DONE NOTHING TO HELP
SMALL BUSINESSES.
NOTHING.
THEY ARE CLOSING.
ONE IN SIX IS GONE.
HE OUGHT TO GET ON THE JOB AND
TAKE CARE OF THE NEEDS OF THE
AMERICAN PEOPLE SO WE CAN OPEN
SAFELY.
>> ALL RIGHT.
YOUR TIME IS UP, SIR.
WE'LL GET TO —
>> I HAVE TO RESPOND TO THAT.
>> YOU BOTH HAD TWO MINUTES,
SIR.
>> EXCUSE ME, HE MADE A
STATEMENT.
>> SO DID YOU.
>> PEOPLE WANT THEIR SCHOOLS —
NO, PEOPLE WANT THEIR SCHOOLS
OPEN.
THEY DON'T WANT TO BE SHUT DOWN.
THEY DON'T WANT THEIR STATES
SHUT DOWN.
I LOOK AT NEW YORK, IT'S SO SAD
WHAT IS HAPPENING IN NEW YORK.
IT'SL LIKE A GHOST TOWN.
I DON'T THINK IT CAN RECOVER.
PEOPLE WANT THEIR PLACES OPEN.
THEY WANT TO GET BACK TO THEIR
LIVES.
>> PEOPLE WANT TO BE SAFE.
>> THEY WANT THEIR SCHOOLS —
>> OKAY.
>> I'M THE ONE THAT BROUGHT BACK
FOOTBALL.
I BROUGHT BACK BIG TEN FOOTBALL.
ME, I'M VERY HAPPY TO DO IT AND
PEOPLE IN OHIO ARE PROUD OF ME.
>> WE'LL GET BACK TO YOUR
ECONOMIC PLANS GOING FORWARD IN
A MOMENT BUT FIRST, MR.
PRESIDENT, AS YOU WELL KNOW,
THERE IS A NEW REPORT THAT IN
2016 THE YEAR YOU WERE ELECTED
PRESIDENT AND 2017, YOUR FIRST
YEAR AS PRESIDENT YOU PAID $750
A YEAR IN FEDERAL INCOME TAX
EACH OF THOSE YEARS.
I KNOW THAT YOU PAY A LOT OF
OTHER TAXES, BUT I'M ASKING YOU
THE SPECIFIC QUESTION, IS IT
TRUE THAT YOU PAID $750 IN
FEDERAL INCOME TAXES EACH OF
THOSE TWO YEARS?
>> I PAID MILLIONS OF DOLLARS IN
TAXES, MILLIONS OF DOLLARS OF
INCOME TAX AND LET ME JUST TELL
YOU, THERE WAS A STORY ON ONE OF
THE PAPERS.
>> SHOW US YOUR TAX RETURNS.
>> I PAID $38 MILLION ONE YEAR.
I PAID $27 MILLION —
>> SHOW US YOUR TAX RETURNS.
>> I WENT — YOU'LL SEE IT AS
SOON AS IT'S FINISHED.
YOU'LL SEE IT.
GO TO THE BOARD OF ELECTIONS,
THERE IS 118 PAGE OR SO REPORT
THAT SAYS EVERYTHING I HAVE,
EVERY BANK I HAVE, I'M TOTALLY
UNDER LEVERAGED BECAUSE THE
ASSETS ARE EXTREMELY GOOD AND WE
HAVE A VERY — I BUILT A GREAT
COMPANY.
>> SIR, I'M ASKING YOU A
SPECIFIC QUESTION.
I UNDERSTAND ALL OF THAT.
I UNDERSTAND ALL OF THAT.
>> LET ME —
>> NO, MR. PRESIDENT.
>> GO AHEAD.
>> I'M ASKING YOU A QUESTION.
WILL YOU TELL US HOW MUCH YOU
PAID IN FEDERAL INCOME TAXES IN
2016 AND 2017?
>> MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.
>> YOU PAID MILLIONS OF DOLLARS?
>> MILLIONS OF DOLLARS.
>> SO NOT 750?
>> YOU'LL GET TO SEE IT?
>> WHEN?
>> CHRIS, LET ME TELL YOU
SOMETHING.
IT WAS THE TAX LAWS, I DON'T
WANT TO PAY TAX.
BEFORE I CAME HERE, I WAS A
PRIVATE DEVELOPER.
I WAS A PRIVATE BUSINESS PEOPLE.
LIKE EVERY OTHER PRIVATE PERSON
UNLESS THEY'RE STUPID, THEY GO
THROUGH THE LAWS AND THAT'S WHAT
IT IS.
HE PASSED A TAX BILL THAT GAVE
US ALL THESE PRIVILEGES FOR
DEPRECIATION AND FOR TAX
CREDITS.
WE BUILT A BUILDING AND GET TAX
CREDITS LIKE THE HOTEL ON
PENNSYLVANIA AVENUE.
YOU GET A MASSIVE — WHICH BY
THE WAY WAS GIVEN TO ME BY THE
OBAMA ADMINISTRATION, IF YOU CAN
BELIEVE THAT.
THE MAN GOT FIRED RIGHT AFTER
THAT HAPPENED.
>> VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN, DO YOU
WANT TO RESPOND?
>> YEAH.
THE TAX CODE THAT MADE HIM, PUT
HIM IN A POSITION HE PAYS LESS
TAX THAN A SCHOOLTEACHER IS
BECAUSE OF HIM TAKING — HE SAYS
HE'S SMART BECAUSE HE CAN TAKE
ADVANTAGE OF THE TAX CODE.
AND HE DOES TAKE ADVANTAGE OF
THE TAX CODE.
THAT'S WHY I'M GOING TO
ELIMINATE THE TRUMP TAX CODES.
WE'RE GOING TO ELIMINATE THOSE
TAX CODES.
>> OKAY.
>> AND MAKE SURE WE INVEST IN
THE PEOPLE WHO IN FACT NEED THE
HELP.
PEOPLE OUT THERE NEED HELP.
>> WHY DIDN'T YOU DO IT IN THE
LAST 25 YEARS?
>> BECAUSE YOU WEREN'T —
>> WHY DIDN'T YOU DO —
>> BECAUSE YOU WEREN'T PRESIDENT
SCREWING THINGS UP.
>> YOU'RE THE WORST PRESIDENT
AMERICA HAS EVER HAD.
COME ON.
>> LET ME TELL YOU, JOE.
I'VE DONE MORE IN 47 MONTHS,
I'VE DONE MORE THAN YOU'VE DONE
IN 47 YEARS, JOE.
WE'VE DONE THINGS THAT YOU NEVER
EVEN THOUGHT OF DOING INCLUDING
FIXING THE BROKEN MILITARY THAT
YOU GAVE ME INCLUDING TAKING
CARE —
>> MR. PRESIDENT, WE'RE TALKING
ABOUT THE ECONOMY.
I'D LIKE TO ASK ABOUT YOUR PLANS
GOING FORWARD BECAUSE MR. VICE
PRESIDENT, YOUR ECONOMIC PLAN IF
YOU WERE TO BE ELECTED PRESIDENT
FOCUSES A LOT ON BIG GOVERNMENT,
BIG TAXES, BIG SPENDING.
I WANT TO FOCUS FIRST ON THE
TAXES.
YOU PROPOSED MORE THAN $4
TRILLION OVER A DECADE IN NEW
TAXES ON INDIVIDUALS MAKING MORE
THAN $400,000 A YEAR AND ON
CORPORATIONS.
PRESIDENT TRUMP SAYS THAT THAT
KIND OF AN INCREASE IN TAXES IS
GOING TO HURT THE ECONOMY AS
IT'S JUST COMING OUT OF A
RECESSION.
>> WELL, JUST TAKE A LOOK AT THE
ANALYSIS BY WALL STREET FIRMS.
POINTS OUT THAT MY ECONOMIC PLAN
WOULD CREATE 7 MILLION MORE JOBS
THAN HIS IN FOUR YEARS NUMBER
ONE AND NUMBER TWO, IT WOULD
CREATE AN ADDITIONAL $1 TRILLION
IN ECONOMIC GROWTH BECAUSE IT
WOULD BE ABOUT BY AN AMERICAN,
WE'LL MAKE — THE FEDERAL
GOVERNMENT SPENDS $6 TRILLION ON
EVERYTHING FROM SHIPS TO STEEL
TO BUILDINGS AND THE LIKE.
AND UNDER MY PROPOSAL, WE'RE
GOING TO MAKE SURE THAT EVERY
PENNY OF THAT HAS TO BE MADE BY
A COMPANY —
>> RESPECTFULLY, SIR, I'M
TALKING ABOUT TAXES, NOT
SPENDING.
>> I'LL ELIMINATE A SIGNIFICANT
NUMBER OF THE TAXES.
I'LL MAKE THE CORPORATE TAX 28%.
IT SHOULDN'T BE 21%.
YOU HAVE 19 COMPANIES — 91
COMPANIES FEDERAL — I MEAN, IN
THE FORTUNE 500 THAT DON'T PAY A
SINGLE PENNY IN TAX MAKING
BILLIONS OF DOLLARS.
>> WHY DIDN'T YOU DO IT WHEN YOU
WERE VICE PRESIDENT?
>> BECAUSE YOU IN FACT PASSED
THAT.
>> I GOT IT DONE.
YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED?
OUR ECONOMY BOOMED LIKE IT NEVER
BOOMED BEFORE.
>> MR. PRESIDENT, LET ME PICK UP
ON THAT.
YOU WOULD CONTINUE YOUR FREE
MARKET APPROACH, LOWER TAXES,
MORE DEREGULATION, CORRECT?
>> NOT LOWER TAXES TO THE
AMERICAN PEOPLE.
>> LET ME — BUT IN OBAMA — YOU
TALK ABOUT THE ECONOMY BOOMING.
IT TURNS OUT IN OBAMA'S FINAL
THREE YEARS AS PRESIDENT, MORE
JOBS WERE CREATED, A MILLION AND
A HALF MORE JOBS THAN IN THE
FIRST THREE YEARS OF YOUR
PRESIDENCY.
>> THEY HAD THE SLOWEST RECOVERY
SINCE 1929.
IT WAS THE SLOWEST RECOVERY.
ALSO, THEY TOOK OVER SOMETHING
THAT WAS DOWN HERE.
ALL YOU HAD TO DO IS TURN ON THE
LIGHTS AND PICK UP A LOT.
THEY HAD THE SLOWEST ECONOMIC
RECOVERY SINCE 1929.
LET ME TELL YOU ABOUT THE STOCK
MARKET.
WHEN THE STOCK MARKET GOES UP,
THAT MEANS JOBS AND MEANS 401
Ks.
IF YOU GOT IN, IF YOU EVER
BECAME PRESIDENT WITH YOUR
IDEAS, YOU WANT TO TERMINATE MY
TAX.
MY TAXES, I'LL TELL YOU WHAT,
YOU'LL LOSE HALF OF THE
COMPANIES THAT POURED IN HERE
WILL LEAVE.
>> HARDLY ANY COMPANIES HAVE —
>> THEY WILL LEAVE AND YOU'LL
HAVE A DEPRESSION THE LIKES OF
WHICH YOU'VE NEVER SEEN.
>> LOOK —
>> MR. PRESIDENT.
>> WE INHERITED THE WORST
RECESSION SHORT OF A DEPRESSION.
I WAS ASKED TO BRING IT BACK.
WE WERE ABLE TO HAVE AN ECONOMIC
RECOVERY THAT CREATED THE JOBS
YOU'RE TALKING ABOUT.
WE HANDED HIM A BLOOMING
ECONOMY.
HE BLEW IT.
HE BLEW IT.
>> IT WASN'T BOOMING.
IT WAS THE WEAKEST RECOVERY —
>> SIR, SIR, WAIT.
IS IT FAIR TO SAY HE BLEW IT
WHEN IN FACT, IT WAS RECORD LOW
UNEMPLOYMENT BEFORE COVID?
>> WHAT HE DID BEFORE COVID,
MANUFACTURING WENT IN THE HOLE.
MANUFACTURING WENT IN THE HOLE.
>> EXCUSE ME, CHRIS, WAIT.
>> NUMBER TWO, NUMBER THREE —
>> THEY SAID THEY WOULD TAKE —
>> YOU'RE NUMBER TWO.
>> NO.
>> THIS GUY IS SOMETHING.
>> A MIRACLE TO BRING BACK
MANUFACTURING.
I BROUGHT BACK 700,000 JOBS.
THEY BROUGHT BACK NOTHING.
THEY GAVE UP ON MANUFACTURING.
>> WE DID NOT.
I'M THE GUY THAT BROUGHT BACK
THE AUTOMOBILE INDUSTRY.
>> LET HIM —
>> I WAS ASKED TO BRING BACK
CHRYSLER AND GENERAL MOTORS HERE
IN THE STATE OF OHIO AND
MICHIGAN.
HE BROOLEW IT.
THEY'RE GONE.
>> OHIO HAD THE BEST YEAR IT'S
EVER HAD LAST YEAR.
MICHIGAN HAD THE BEST YEAR
THEY'VE EVER HAD.
>> THAT IS NOT TRUE.
>> MANY CAR COMPANIES CAME FROM
GERMANY AND JAPAN.
WENT TO MICHIGAN, WENT TO OHIO.
>> MR. VICE PRESIDENT, GO AHEAD.
>> SO YOU TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT
HE'S ACTUALLY DONE.
HE'S DONE VERY LITTLE.
HIS TRADE DEALS ARE THE SAME
WAY.
HE TALKS ABOUT GREAT TRADE
DEALS.
HE TALKS ABOUT THE ART OF THE
DEAL.
CHINA PERFECTED THE ART OF THE
STEEL.
WE HAVE A HIGHER DEFICIT WITH
CHINA NOW THAN WE DID BEFORE.
WE HAVE THE HIGHEST DEFICIT —
>> CHINA ATE YOUR LUNCH.
CHINA ATE YOUR LUNCH, JOE.
NO WONDER YOUR SON GOES IN AND
TAKES OUT BILLIONS OF DOLLARS.
TAKES OUT BILLIONS OF DOLLARS TO
MANAGE AND MAKES MILLIONS OF
DOLLARS AND ALSO.
>> SIMPLY NOT TRUE.
>> WHY IS IT JUST OUT OF
CURIOSITY, THE MAYOR OF MOSCOW'S
WIFE GAVE YOUR SON $3.5 MILLION.
>> THAT IS NOT TRUE.
>> WHAT DID HE DO TO DESERVE IT?
DID HE DO TO DESERVE $183,000?
>> NONE OF THAT IS TRUE.
>> LET HIM ANSWER.
>> NONE OF THAT IS TRUE.
>> REALLY?
HE DIDN'T GIVE HIM $3.5 MILLION?
>> MR. PRESIDENT, PLEASE.
>> TOTALLY DISCREDITED.
BY THE WAY —
>> HE DIDN'T GET $3.5 MILLION,
JOE?
>> MR. PRESIDENT.
>> HE GOT $3.5 MILLION.
>> THAT IS NOT TRUE.
>> MR. PRESIDENT.
IT'S AN OPEN DISCUSSION.
PLEASE.
>> IT'S A FACT.
>> LET —
>> TOTALLY —
>> LET HIM GIVE AN ANSWER.
>> PAID 183,000 A MONTH?
WITH NO EXPERIENCE IN ENERGY?
>> MR. PRESIDENT?
>> MY SON DID NOTHING WRONG.
>> I THINK HE DID.
>> MR. PRESIDENT, LET HIM
ANSWER.
>> HE DOESN'T WANT TO LET ME
ANSWER BECAUSE HE KNOWS I HAVE
THE TRUTH.
HIS POSITION IS TOTALLY
THOROUGHLY DISCREDITED.
>> BY WHO?
T
MEDIA.
>> BY THE MEDIA, ALLIES, THE
BANK.
BY EVERYONE HAS DISCREDITED IT.
>> MR. PRESIDENT, PLEASE STOP.
>> LET ME ASK YOU —
>> GO AHEAD.
MR. —
>> I'M LISTENING TO YOU.
>> HE GOT $3.5 MILLION FROM
MOSCOW.
>> HE TESTIFIED UNDER OATH AND
HIS ADMINISTRATION SAID I DID MY
JOB AND I DID IT VERY WELL
HONORABLY.
>> I KNOW WHO THEY ARE.
>> I'LL GIVE YOU THE LIST.
>> GO AHEAD, SIR.
>> YOU'VE ALREADY FIRED MOST OF
THEM BECAUSE THEY DID A GOOD
JOB.
>> SOME PEOPLE DON'T —
>> HERE —
>> WITH YOU —
>> WAIT A MINUTE.
YOU GET THE FINAL WORD.
>> IT'S HARD TO GET ANY WORD IN
WITH THIS CLOWN.
EXCUSE ME, THIS PERSON.
>> NO, NO, NO, MR. PRESIDENT —
>> 3.5 MILLION, JOE.
>> THAT IS SIMPLY.
>> WHY DID HE DESERVE $3.5
MILLION FROM MOSCOW?
>> HERE IS THE DEAL.
WE WANT TO TALK ABOUT FAMILIES
AND ETHICS, I DON'T WANT TO DO
THAT.
I MEAN, HIS FAMILY WE COULD TALK
ABOUT ALL NIGHT.
HIS FAMILY —
>> MY FAMILY —
>> LET HIM —
>> I LOST A FORTUNE BY COMING
DOWN AND HELPING WITH
GOVERNMENT.
>> THEY'RE RIGHT HERE.
>> MR. PRESIDENT —
>> EVERY SING FLE ONE.
>> THIS IS NOT ABOUT MY FAMILY
OR HIS FAMILY.
IT'S ABOUT YOUR FAMILY.
THAT'S NOT TRUE, IT DOESN'T WANT
TO TALK ABOUT WHAT YOU NEED.
YOU, THE AMERICAN PEOPLE.
IT'S ABOUT YOU.
THAT'S WHAT WE'RE TALKING ABOUT.
>> ALL RIGHT.
THAT'S THE END OF THE SEGMENT.
WE'RE MOVING ON.
>> DIDN'T TAKE THEM.
>> VICE PRESIDENT —
>> NO.
>> CAN I BE HONEST?
IT'S A VERY IMPORTANT QUESTION.
HE STOOD UP —
>> NO.
>> THE ANSWER TO THE QUESTION IS
NO.
>> UKRAINE.
>> SIR.
>> WITH A BILLION DOLLARS —
>> THAT IS ABSOLUTELY NOT TRUE.
>> STOP.
>> DOING IT —
>> YOU'RE GOING TO HAVE.
>> GENTLEMEN.
I HATE TO RAISE MY VOICE BUT WHY
SHOULD I BE DIFFERENT THAN THE
TWO OF YOU.
>> I GET YOUR POINT.
>> WE HAVE SIX SEGMENTS.
WE HAVE ENDED THAT SEGMENT.
WE'RE GOING TO GO TO THE NEXT
SEGMENT.
IN THAT SEGMENT, YOU EACH ARE
GOING TO HAVE TWO UNINTERRUPTED
MOMENTS.
IN THE TWO UNENTER RENTED
MINUTES, MR. PRESIDENT, YOU CAN
SAY ANYTHING YOU WANT, I'M GOING
TO ASK A QUESTION ABOUT RACE BUT
IF YOU WANT TO ANSWER ABOUT
SOMETHING ELSE, GO AHEAD.
I THINK THE COUNTRY WOULD BE
BETTER SERVED IF WE ALLOWED BOTH
PEOPLE TO SPEAK WITH FEWER
INTERRUPTIONS.
I'M APPEALING TO YOU, SIR, TO DO
THAT.
>> HIM, TOO.
>> WELL, FRANKLY YOU'VE BEEN
DOING MORE INTERRUPTING.
>> THAT'S ALL RIGHT.
HE DOES PLENTY.
>> LESS THAN —
>> SIR.
>> HE DOES PLENTY.
>>LESS THAN YOU HAVE.
LET'S CONTINUE ON.
VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN YOU SAY
PRESIDENT TRUMP'S RESPONSE TO
THE VIOLENCE IN CHARLOTTESVILLE
THREE YEARS AGO WHEN HE TALKED
ABOUT VERY FINE PEOPLE ON BOTH
SIDES WAS WHAT DIRECTLY LED YOU
TO LAUNCH THIS RUN FOR
PRESIDENT.
>> OH, YEAH, SURE.
>> PRESIDENT TRUMP, YOU HAVE
OFTEN SAID THAT YOU BELIEVE YOU
HAVE DONE MORE FOR BLACK
AMERICANS THAN ANY PRESIDENT
WITH THE POSSIBLE EXCEPTION OF
ABRAHAM LINCOLN.
MY QUESTION FOR THE TWO OF YOU,
WHY SHOULD VOTERS TRUST YOU
RATHER THAN YOUR OPPONENT TO
DEAL WITH THE RACE ISSUES FACING
THIS COUNTRY OVER THE NEXT FOUR
YEARS?
VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN, YOU GO
FIRST.
>> IT'S ABOUT EQUITY AND
EQUALITY AND DECENCY.
IT'S ABOUT THE CONSTITUTION.
WE HAVE NEVER WALKED AWAY FROM
TRYING TO ACQUIRE EQUITY FOR
EVERYONE.
EQUALITY FOR THE WHOLE AFMERICA.
WE NEVER ACCOMPLISHED IT.
WE NEVER WALKED AWAY FROM IT
LIKE HE HAS DONE.
IT'S TRUE, THE REASON I GOT IN
THE RACE WITH MOST PEOPLE.
CLOSE YOUR EYES, REMEMBER THOSE
PEOPLE CARRYING THE TORCHES,
THEIR VEINS BUDGING AND JUST
SPEWING ANTI SEMIMITT TICK BILE.
THEY ASKED THE PRESIDENT VERY
FINE PEOPLE ON BOTH SIDES.
NO PRESIDENT EVER SAID ANYTHING
LIKE THAT.
>> FINISH.
>> LET HIM FINISH, SIR.
>> SECOND POINT I'D MAKE TO YOU
IS WHEN FLOYD WAS KILLED, WHEN
MR. FLOYD WAS KILLED, THERE WAS
A PEACEFUL PROTEST IN FRONT OF
THE WHITE HOUSE.
WHAT DID HE DO?
HE CAME OUT OF HIS BUNKER, HAD
THE MILITARY USE TEAR GAS ON
THEM SO HE COULD WALK ACROSS TO
A CHURCH AND HOLD UP A BIBLE AND
THEN WHAT HAPPENED AFTER THAT?
THE BISHOP OF THAT VERY CHURCH
SAID IT WAS THE DISGRACE.
THE GENERAL WHO WAS WITH HIM
SAID ALL HE EVER WANTS TO DO IS
DIVIDE PEOPLE, NOT UNITE PEOPLE
AT ALL.
THIS IS A PRESIDENT WHO HAS USED
EVERYTHING AS A DOG WHISTLE TO
TRY TO GENERATE RACIEST HATRED
AND DIVISION.
THIS IS A MAN WHO IN FACT YOU
TALK ABOUT HELPING AFRICAN
AMERICANS, ONE IN 1,000 AFRICAN
AMERICANS HAS BEEN KILLED
BECAUSE OF THE CORONAVIRUS.
AND IF HE DOESN'T DO SOMETHING
QUICKLY, BY THE END OF THE YEAR,
1 IN 500 WILL HAVE BEEN KILLED.
1 IN 500 AFRICAN AMERICANS.
THIS MAN, THIS MAN IS THE SAVIOR
OF AFRICAN AMERICANS?
THIS MAN CARES AT ALL?
THIS MAN HAS DONE VIRTUALLY
NOTHING.
LOOK, THE FACT IS THAT YOU HAVE
TO LOOK AT WHAT HE TALKS ABOUT.
YOU HAVE TO LOOK AT WHAT HE DID
AND WHAT HE DID HAS BEEN
DISASTROUS FOR THE AFRICAN
AMERICAN COMMUNITY.
>> SO —
>> PRESIDENT TRUMP, YOU HAVE TWO
MINUTES.
WHY SHOULD AMERICANS TRUST YOU
OVER YOUR OPPONENT TO DEAL WITH
RACISM.
>> HE DID A CRIME BILL 1994
WHERE YOU CALL THEM SUPER
PREDATORS AFRICAN AMERICANS.
SUPER PREDATORS AND THEY HAVE
NEVER FORGOTTEN IT.
THEY HAVE NEVER FORGOTTEN IT.
>> SIR, IT'S HIS TWO MINUTES.
>> YOU DID THAT.
THEY CALL YOU SUPER PREDATOR AND
I'M LETTING PEOPLE OUT OF JAIL
NOW THAT YOU HAVE TREATED THE
AFRICAN AMERICAN POPULATION
COMMUNITY, YOU HAVE TREATED THE
BLACK COMMUNITY ABOUT AS BAD AS
ANYBODY IN THIS COUNTRY.
YOU DID THE 19 — THAT'S WHY IF
YOU LOOK AT THE POLLS, I'M DOING
BETTER THAN ANY REPUBLICAN HAS
DONE IN A LONG TIME BECAUSE THEY
SAW WHAT YOU DID.
YOU CALL THEM SUPER PREDATORS
AND YOU'VE CALLED THEM WORSE
THAN THAT BECAUSE YOU LOOK BACK
AT YOUR TESTIMONY OVER THE YEARS
YOU'VE CALLED THEM A LOT WORSE
THAN THAT.
AS FAR AS THE CHURCH IS
CONCERNED AND AS FAR AS THE
GENERALS ARE CONCERNED, WE JUST
GOT THE SUPPORT OF 250 MILITARY
LEADERS AND GENERALS TOTAL
SUPPORT.
LAW ENFORCEMENT ALMOST EVERY LAW
ENFORCEMENT GROUP IN THE UNITED
STATES I HAVE FLORIDA, I HAVE
TEXAS, I HAVE OHIO, I HAVE
EVERY — EXCUSE ME, PORTLAND,
THE SHERIFF CAME OUT TODAY AND
SAID I SUPPORT PRESIDENT TRUMP.
I DON'T THINK YOU HAVE ANY LAW
ENFORCEMENT.
YOU CAN'T EVEN SAY THE WORD LAW
ENFORCEMENT BECAUSE IF YOU SAY
THOSE WORDS, YOU'RE GOING TO
LOSE YOUR RADICAL LEFT
SUPPORTERS.
WHY AREN'T YOU SAYING THE WORDS
LAW ENFORCEMENT?
YOU KNOW WHAT?
IF THEY CALLED US IN PORTLAND,
WE WOULD PUT OUT THE FIRE IN
HALF AN HOUR BUT THEY WON'T DO
IT BECAUSE THEY ARE RUN BY
RADICAL LEFT DEMOCRATS.
IF YOU LOOK AT CHICAGO.
IF YOU LOOK ANYPLACE YOU WANT TO
LOOK, SEATTLE.
THEY HEARD WE WERE COPPING IN
THE FOLLOWING DAY AND THEY PUT
UP HANDS AND WE GOT BACK
SEATTLE.
MINNEAPOLIS, WE GOT IT BACK,
JOE, BECAUSE WE BELIEVE IN LAW
AND ORDER BUT YOU DON'T.
THE TOP TEN CITIES IN JUST ABOUT
THE TOP 40 CITIES ARE RUN BY
DEMOCRATS AND IN MANY CASES
RADICAL LEFT AND GOT YOU WRAPPED
AROUND THEIR FINGER, JOE, TO A
POINT WHERE YOU DON'T WANT TO
SAY ANYTHING ABOUT LAW AND
ORDER.
I'LL TELL YOU WHAT, THE PEOPLE
OF THIS COUNTRY WANT AND DEMAND
LAW AND ORDER AND YOU'RE AFRAID
TO EVEN SAY IT.
>> ALL RIGHT.
I WANT TO RETURN TO THE QUESTION
OF RACE.
VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN, AFTER THE
GRAND JURY IN THE BREONNA TAYLOR
CASE DECIDED NOT TO CHARGE ANY
OF THE POLICE WITH HOMICIDE, YOU
SAID IT RAISES THE QUESTION
QUOTE WHETHER JUSTICE COULD BE
EQUALLY APPLIED IN AMERICA.
DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THERE IS A
SEPARATE BUT UNEQUAL SYSTEM OF
JUSTICE FOR BLACKS IN THIS
COUNTRY?
>> YES, THERE IS SYSTEMIC
INJUSTICE IN THIS COUNTRY IN
EDUCATION, WORK AND IN LAW
ENFORCEMENT AND THE WAY IT'S
ENFORCED.
LOOK, THE VAST MAJORITY OF
POLICE OFFICERS ARE GOOD,
DESCENT HONORABLE MEN AND WOMEN.
THEY RISK THEIR LIVES EVERY DAY
TO TAKE CARE OF US BUT THERE ARE
SOME BAD APPLES AND WHEN THEY
OCCUR, THEY HAVE TO BE SORTED
OUT.
THEY HAVE TO BE HELD
ACCOUNTABLE.
THEY HAVE TO BE HELD
ACCOUNTABLE.
WHAT I'M GOING TO DO AS
PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES
IS CALL TOGETHER AN ENTIRE GROUP
OF PEOPLE AT THE WHITE HOUSE,
EVERYTHING FROM THE CIVIL RIGHTS
GROUPS TO THE POLICE OFFICERS TO
THE POLICE CHIEFS AND WE'RE
GOING TO WORK THIS OUT.
WE'RE GOING TO WORK THIS OUT SO
WE CHANGE THE WAY IN WHICH WE
HAVE MORE TRANSPARENCY AND WHEN
THESE THINGS HAPPEN, THESE COPS
AREN'T HAPPY TO SEE WHAT
HAPPENED TO GEORGE FLOYD.
THESE COPS AREN'T HAPPY TO SEE
WHAT HAPPENED TO BREONNA TAYLOR.
MOST DON'T LIKE IT.
BUT WE HAVE TO HAVE A SYSTEM
WHERE PEOPLE ARE HELD
ACCOUNTABLE AND BY THE WAY,
VIOLENCE AND RESPONSE IS NEVER
APPROPRIATE.
NEVER APPROPRIATE.
PEACEFUL PROTEST IS.
VIOLENCE IS NEVER APPROPRIATE.
>> ALL RIGHT.
>> MR. IS PEACEFUL PROTEST WHEN
THEY RUN THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF
THE TOWN —
>> PRESIDENT TRUMP.
>> AND BURN DOWN YOUR STORES AND
KILL PEOPLE ALL OVER THE PLACE.
THAT IS PEACEFUL PROTEST?
>> NO, IT'S NOT.
>> YOU SAY IT IS.
>> PRESIDENT TRUMP, I'D LIKE TO
CONTINUE WITH THE ISSUE OF RACE.
I PROMISE WE'LL GET TO THE ISSUE
OF LAW AND ORDER IN A MOMENT.
>> PLEASE.
>> THIS MONTH, YOUR
ADMINISTRATION DIRECTED FEDERAL
AGENCIES TO END RACIAL
SENSITIVITY TRAINING THAT
ADDRESSES WHITE PRIVILEGE OR
CRITICAL RACE THEORY.
WHY DID YOU DECIDE TO DO THAT TO
END RACIAL SENSITIVITY TRAINING
AND DO YOU BELIEVE THAT THERE IS
SYSTEMIC RACISM IN THIS COUNTRY,
SIR?
>> I ENDED IT BECAUSE IT'S
I ENDED IT BECAUSE A LOT OF
PEOPLE ASKED TO DO THINGS THAT
WERE INSANE, THAT IT WAS A
RADICAL REVOLUTION THAT WAS
TAKEN PLACE IN OUR MILITARY AND
SCHOOLS, ALL OVER THE PLACE AND
YOU KNOW IT.
>> WHAT DOES RADICAL
SENSITIVITY?
>> IF YOU WERE A SENSE OF
PERSON, YOU HAVE NO STATUS IN
LIFE.
WE WOULD PAY PEOPLE HUNDREDS OF
THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS TO TEACH
BAD IDEAS AND VERY SICK IDEAS
AND REALLY THEY WOULD TEACH
PEOPLE TO HATE OUR COUNTRY.
I AM NOT GOING TO DO THAT.
I AM NOT GOING TO ALLOW THAT TO
HAPPEN.
WE HAVE TO GO BACK TO THE CORE
VALUES OF THIS COUNTRY.
THEY WERE TEACHING PEOPLE THAT
OUR COUNTRY IS A HORRIBLE PLACE,
IT IS A RACIST PLACE AND THEY
WERE TEACHING PEOPLE TO HATE OUR
COUNTRY.
I AM NOT GOING TO ALLOW THAT.
>> VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN.
>> NOBODY IS DOING THAT.
HE'S RACIST.
I KNOW A LOT MORE ABOUT THAT.
>> LET HIM FINISH.
>> THE FACT IS THERE IS RACIAL
AND SENSITIVITY, PEOPLE HAVE TO
BE MADE AWARE OF WHAT OTHER
PEOPLE FEEL LIKE AND WHAT IS
DEMEANING TO THEM.
IT IS IMPORTANT FOR PEOPLE TO
KNOW.
MANY PEOPLE DON'T WANT TO HURT
OTHER PEOPLE'S FEELINGS.
IT MAKES A BIG DIFFERENCE.
IT MAKES A GIGANTIC DIFFERENCE
IN A WAY THAT A CHILD IS ABLE TO
GROW UP AND HAVE A SENSE OF
SELF-ESTEEM.
IT IS A LITTLE BIT LIKE THIS GUY
AND HIS FRIENDS LOOK DOWN ON SO
MANY PEOPLE, THEY LOOK DOWN ON
PEOPLE WHO ARE DIFFERENT FAITHS
AND COLOR.
WE ARE ALL AMERICANS.
THE ONLY WAY WE CAN BRING PEOPLE
TOGETHER IS BRING PEOPLE
TOGETHER AND DO IT TOGETHER.
WE CAN TAKE THIS ON AND DEFEAT
RA
RACISM.
>> PRESIDENT TRUMP.
>> DURING THE OBAMA
ADMINISTRATION, THERE WERE
TREMENDOUS HATRED AND YOU LOOK
AT FERGUSON.
LOOK AT OAKLAND AND WHAT
HAPPENED IN BALTIMORE AND LOOK
AT WHAT HAPPENED, FRANKLY IT WAS
MORE VIOLENT THAN WHAT I AM
SEEING NOW.
>> OH MY.
>> I DON'T WANT TO TALK ABOUT
YOU ABOUT LAW AND ORDER.
>> ARE YOU IN FAVOR AND ORDER?
>> LET HIM FINISH.
LET HIM FINISH.
>> LAW AND ORDER AND JUSTICE
WHERE PEOPLE GET TREATED FAIRLY.
THE FACT THE MATTER IS, VIOLENT
CRIME WERE FOUND 50% IN OUR
ADMINISTRATION AND GONE UP ON
HIS WATCH.
>> MR. PRESIDENT, YOU ARE GOING
TO BE HAPPY, WE ARE NOT GOING TO
TALK ABOUT LAW AND ORDER.
>> THERE HAS BEEN A DRAMATIC
INC
INCREASE OF CRIMES THIS SUMMER.
YOU HAVE BEEN BLAMING ON
DEMOCRATS.
THERE HAS BEEN SPIKES IN CITIES
LIKE TULSA AND FORT WORTH.
IS THIS A PARTY ISSUE?
>> I THINK IS A PARTY ISSUE.
IF YOU LOOK AT WHAT'S GOING ON
IN CHICAGO WHERE 53 PEOPLE WERE
SHOT AND EIGHT DIED.
SHOT.
IF YOU LOOK AT NEW YORK WHERE IT
IS GOING UP LIKE NOBODY EVER
SEEN ANYTHING.
THE NUMBERS ARE GOING UP BY 100,
150 OR 200% CRIMES.
IT IS CRAZY WHAT'S GOING ON AND
HE DOES NOT WANT TO SAY LAW AND
ORDER BECAUSE HE'LL LOSE HIS
RADICAL LEFT SUPPORTERS AND ONCE
HE DOES THAT IT IS OVER WITH.
IF HE EVER GOT TO RUN THIS
COUNTRY AND THEY RAN IT THE WAY
HE WOULD WANT TO RUN IT, WE
WOULD HAVE —
>> BY THE WAY —
>> OUR SUBURBS WOULD BE GONE.
>> HE WOULD NOT KNOW THE SUBURBS
UNLESS HE TOOK A WRONG TURN.
>> I WAS RAISED IN THE SUBURBS.
THIS IS NOT 1950s.
ALL THESE DOGS AND WHISTLES ARE
NOT WORKING ANYMORE.
SUBURBS ARE BY AND LARGE
INTEGRATED.
MANY PEOPLE ARE DRIVING THEIR
KIDS TO PRACTICES WITH BLACK AND
WHITE AND HISPANICS IN THE SAME
CAR.
FAMILIES ARE DYING IN THE
SUBURBS.
THEY'RE BEING FLOODED AND BURNED
OUT BECAUSE OF HIS REFUSAL TO DO
ANYTHING.
THAT'S WHY THE SUBURBS ARE IN
TROUBLE.
>> I WANT TO TALK ABOUT THE
ISSUE OF LAW AND ORDER THOUGH.
IN THE JOINT RECOMMENDATION THAT
CAME FROM THE BIDEN/BERNIE
SANDERS TASK FORCE, YOU TALKED
ABOUT REIMAGINING POLICE.
WHAT DOES IT MEAN AND DO YOU
SUPPORT THE BLACK LIVES MATTER
CALL FOR CONTROL OF POLICE.
AS A MATTER OF FACT, LOCAL
POLICE, HIS BUDGET CALLS FOR A
$400 MILLION CUT.
THEY NEED MORE ASSISTANCE.
THEY NEED TO SHOW UP AT 9/11
CALLS.
WE HAVE TO HAVE COMMUNITY
POLICING LIKE WE HAVE BEFORE
WHERE THE OFFICERS KNOW THE
PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY.
THAT'S WHERE THE CRIMES WENT
DOWN AND DID NOT GO UP.
WE HAVE —
>> YHE DOES NOT KNOW WHAT THEY'E
TALKING ABOUT.
>> THAT'S NOT TRUE.
>> HE HAS NO LAW ENFORCEMENT.
>> THAT'S NOT TRUE.
>> LOOK —
>> ALL RIGHT, WHO DO YOU HAVE,
NAME ONE GROUP THAT CAME OUT AND
SUPPORT YOU, GO AHEAD.
WE HAVE TIME.
>> WE DON'T HAVE TIME.
>> ALL RIGHT.
NAME ONE LAW ENFORCEMENT —
>> I AM GOING TO TAKE BACK — I
WANT TO GET TO ANOTHER SUBJECT
WHICH IS THE ISSUE OF PROTESTS
IN MANY CITIES THAT TURNED
VIOLENT.
WE HAVE MORE THAN 100 STRAIGHT
DAYS OF PROTESTS WHICH I THINK
YOU WOULD AGREE THAT WE ARE
TALKING ABOUT PEACEFUL PROTESTS
AND MANY OF THOSE TURNED TO
RIOTS.
THE VICE PRESIDENT, YOU SAY THAT
PEOPLE WHO COMMIT CRIMES SHOULD
BE HELD ACCOUNTABLE.
AS A DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE AND
EARLIER TONIGHT YOU SAID YOU ARE
THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY RIGHT NOW.
HAVE YOU EVER CALLED THE
DEMOCRATIC MAYOR OF PORTLAND OR
THE DEMOCRATIC GOVERNOR OF
OREGON AND SAID, HEY, YOU GOT TO
STOP THIS.
BRING IN THE NATIONAL GUARD AND
DO WHATEVER IT TAKES BUT YOU
STOP THE DAYS AND MONTHS OF
VIOLENCE IN PORTLAND?
>> I DON'T HOLD PUBLIC OFFICE
NOW.
I AM A FORMER VICE PRESIDENT.
I MADE IT CLEAR IN MY POLITIC
STAT
PUBLIC STATEMENTS THAT THE
VIOLENCE SHOULD BE PROSECUTED.
>> EXCUSE ME SIR.
YOU NEVER CALLED FOR THE LEADERS
IN PORTLAND AND IN OREGON AND
THE NATIONAL GUARD — HIS OWN
FORMER SPOKESPERSON SAYS RIOTS
AND CHAOS AND VIOLENCE HELP THIS
CAUSE.
THAT'S WHAT HE KEEPS ON TRYING
TO RIOTING UP AND HE DOES NOT
WANT TO CALM THINGS DOWN.
INSTEAD OF GOING IN AND TALK TO
PEOPLE LET'S GET PEOPLE
TOGETHER.
>> ARE YOU WILLING TONIGHT TO
CONDEMN WHITE PRESUPREMACISTS A
M
MILITIA GROUPS TO STAND DOWN AS
WE SEE THE PEOPLE LIKE IN
PORTLAND.
>> I WOULD SAY ALMOST EVERYTHING
I SEE IS FROM THE LEFT WING AND
NOT FROM THE RIGHT.
>> WHAT ARE YOU SAYING?
>> I AM WILLING TO DO ANYTHING.
I WANT TO SEE PEACE.
>> THEN DO IT, SIR.
>> SAY IT.
>> WHAT DO YOU WANT ME TO CALL
THEM?
>> WHITE SUPREMACISTS.
>> STAND BACK AND STANDBY, I
WILL TELL YOU WHAT, SOMEBODY GOT
TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT ANTIFA AND
THE LEFT.
>> ANTIFA IS AN IDEA AND NOT AN
ORGANIZATION.
THAT'S WHAT HIS FBI DIRECTOR
SAID.
>> WE ARE DONE, SIR, WE ARE
MOVING ON.
>> EVERYBODY IN THE
ADMINISTRATION TELLS YOU THE
TRUTH IS A BAD IDEA.
YOU HAVE NO IDEA.
>> ANTIFA IS A DANGEROUS
RADICAL —
>> GENTLEMEN, WE ARE MOVING
LEFT.
I AM GOING TO ASK THE QUESTION.
WHEN THE PRESIDENT SEEKS A
SECOND TERM, IT IS A REFERENDUM
ON HIS RECORD BUT VICE PRESIDENT
BIDEN, YOU WOULD LIKE TO QUOTE
ONE OF YOUR DAD'S SAYING WHICH
IS "DON'T COMPARE ME TO THE ALL
MIGHTY, COMPARE ME TO THE
ALTERNATIVE" AND IN THIS CASE
YOU ARE THE ALTERNATIVE.
LOOKING AT BOTH OF YOUR RECORDS,
I AM GOING TO ASK EACH OF YOU
WHY SHOULD VOTERS ELECT YOU
PRESIDENT OVER YOUR OPPONENT .
IN THIS SEGMENT, YOU GO FIRST,
PRESIDENT TRUMP.
>> THERE IS NEVER BEEN A
PRESIDENT WHO HAS DONE MORE THAN
I HAVE DONE IN THE PERIOD OF
THREE YEARS AND THAT'S DESPITE
THE IMPEACHMENT HOAX AND YOU SAW
WHAT HAPPENED WITH HILLARY
CLINTON WITH THE BIG CON JOB AND
DESPITE GOING THROUGH ALL THESE
THINGS, PEOPLE HAVE BEEN BEHIND
ME AND ABOVE.
THERE HAS NEVER BEEN AN
ADMINISTRATION THAT HAS DONE
WHAT I HAVE DONE.
THE GREATEST HISTORY AND LOWEST
UNEMPLOYMENT NUMBERS, BEFORE
COVID.
THERE WAS UNITY GOING TO HAPPEN.
PEOPLE WERE CALLING ME FOR THE
FIRST TIME IN YEARS, THEY WERE
CALLING AND SAYING IT IS TIME
AND WE GOT HIT AND WE ARE
BUILDING IT BACKUP AGAIN.
A REBUILDING OF THE MILITARY
INCLUDING SPACE FORCE AND ALL
THE OTHER THINGS.
A FIXING OF THE VA WHICH WAS A
MESS UNDER HIM.
340,000 PEOPLE DIED BECAUSE THEY
DID NOT HAVE PROPER HEALTHCARE.
WE HAVE 91% APPROVAL RATING AT
THE VA AND OUR VETS.
WE TAKE CARE OF OUR VETS.
THE JOB THAT WE HAVE DO
DONE — SOME PEOPLE SAY THE MOST
IMPORTANT.
BY THE END OF THE FIRST TERM, I
WILL HAVE 300 FEDERAL JUDGES AND
COURT OF APPEALS JUDGE AND
HOPEFULLY THREE GREAT SUPREME
COURT JUSTICES.
THAT'S A RECORD, THE LIKES OF
VERY FEW PEOPLE.
YOU KNOW THE REASONS WHY I HAVE
SO MANY JUDGES?
BECAUSE PRESIDENT OBAMA AND HIM
LEFT ME 128 JUDGES TO FILL.
WHEN YOU LEAVE OFFICE, YOU DON'T
LEAVE ANY JUDGES.
YOU JUST DON'T DO THAT.
THEY LEFT 128 OPENINGS AND IF I
WERE A MEMBER OF HIS PARTY
BECAUSE THEY HAVE A DIFFERENT
PHILOSOPHY.
IF YOU LEFT US 128 OPENINGS, YOU
CAN'T BE A GOOD PRESIDENT, YOU
CAN'T BE A GOOD VICE PRESIDENT
BUT I WANT TO THANK YOU BECAUSE
IT GIVES US PROBABLY BE ABOVE
THAT NUMBER BY THE END OF THIS
GENERATION, 300 JUDGES, IT IS A
RECORD.
>> LOOKING AT BOTH OF YOUR
RECORDS.
WHY SHOULD VOTERS ELECT YOU
PRESIDENT AS OPPOSE TO PRESIDENT
TRUMP TRUMP?
>> UNDER THIS PRESIDENT WE
BECOME WEAKER, SICKER, POOR,
MORE DIVIDED AND MORE VIOLENT.
WHEN I WAS VICE PRESIDENT, WE
INHERITED THE RECESSION AND I
WAS ASKED TO FIX IT.
WE LEFT HIM A BOOMING ECONOMY
AND HE CAUSED THE RECESSION.
WITH REGARDS TO BEING WEAKER,
THE FACT IS THAT I GONE HEAD TO
HEAD WITH PUTIN AND MADE IT
CLEAR THAT WE'LL NOT TAKE ANY OF
HIS STUFF.
HE'S PUTIN'S PUPPET, HE REFUSED
TO SAY AND DEFEND OUR SOLDIERS.
>> MR. PRESIDENT, YOUR CAMPAIGN
AGREED TO BOTH SIDES WILL GET
TWO-MINUTES ANSWERS
UNINTERRUPTED.
YOUR SIDE AGREE TO IT.
>> THAT WAS A RHETORICAL
QUESTION.
>> CAN I HAVE BACK 30 SECONDS?
>> YES.
>> BILLIONAIRES GOTTEN MUCH MORE
WEALTHY BY 300 OR $400 BILLION
MORE JUST FROM COVID.
YOU GOT LESS AND YOU ARE IN MORE
TROUBLE THAN YOU WERE BEFORE.
IN TERMS OF BEING MORE VIOLENT,
WHEN WE WERE IN OFFICE, THERE
WERE 15% LESS VIOLENCE IN
AMERICA THAN THERE IS TODAY.
HE'S PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED
STATES, IT IS ON HIS WATCH.
WITH REGARDS TO MORE DIVIDED,
THE NATION CAN'T STAY DIVIDED.
WE CAN'T BE THIS WAY.
SPEAKING OF MY SON, THE WAY YOU
TALK ABOUT MILITARY AND THEM
BEING LOSERS AND JUST BEING
SUCKERS — MY SON WAS IN IRAQ,
HE SPENT A YEAR THERE, HE GOT
THE BRONZE STAR AND HIS SERVICE
MEDAL, HE WAS NOT A LOSER.
HE WAS A PATRIOT AND THE PEOPLE
LEFT BEHIND THERE WERE HEROES
AND I RESENT — I AM TALKING
ABOUT MY SON BEAU BIDEN.
>> I KNOW HUNTER, HUNTER GOT
THROWN OUT OF THE MILITARY.
HE WAS THROWN OUT AND DISHONORLY
DISCHARGED.
>> COCAINE USE.
>> THAT'S NOT TRUE.
>> HE DID NOT HAVE A JOB UNTIL
YOU BECAME A PRESIDENT.
HE MADE A FORTUNE.
>> THAT WAS SIMPLY SHOT TRUE.
HE DIDN'T HAVE A JOB.
>> MY SON LIKE A LOT OF PEOPLE
WE KNOW AT HOME HAD A DRUG
PROBLEM.
HE'S OVER TAKEN AND HE'S FIXED
AND HE'S WORKED ON IT.
>> WE HAVE BEEN THROUGH THIS.
THE AMERICAN PEOPLE WOULD RATHER
HERE MORE SUBSTANTIAL SUBJECT.
>> AS A MODERATOR I AM GOING TO
MAKE A JUDGMENT CALL HERE.
>> I WILL TALK ABOUT MOSCOW.
>> GENTLEMEN —
>> I WOULD LIKE TO TALK ABOUT
CLIMATE CHANGE.
>> SO WOULD I.
>> OKAY.
>> THE FOREST FIRES IN THE WEST
ARE RAVAGING NOW AND DISPLACED
HUN
HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF PEOPLE,
WHEN STATE OFFICIALS BLAMED IT
ON CLIMATE CHANGE AND MR.
PRESIDENT YOU SAID "I DON'T
THINK THE SCIENCE KNOW," YOU
HAVE THROWN BACK A NUMBER OF
OBAMA ENVIRONMENTAL RECORDS,
WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE ABOUT THE
SCIENCE OF CLIMATE CHANGE AND
WHAT WILL YOU DO IN THE NEXT
FOUR YEARS TO CONFRONT IT?
>> I WANT CRYSTAL CLEAR WATER
AND AIR.
I WANT BEAUTIFUL CLEAN AIR.
WE HAVE THE LOWEST CARBON.
IF YOU LOOK AT OUR NUMBERS RIGHT
NOW.
WE ARE DOING PHENOMENALLY, I
HAVE NOT DESTROYED OUR
BUSINESSES.
OUR BUSINESSES ARE NOT PUT OUT
COMMISSION.
IF YOU LOOK AT THE PARIS ACCORD,
IT WAS A DISASTER FROM OUR
STANDPOINT AND PEOPLE ARE
ACTUALLY VERY HAPPY ABOUT WHAT'S
GOING ON BECAUSE OUR BUSINESSES
ARE DOING WELL.
AS FAR AS THE FIRES, YOU NEED
FOREST MANAGEMENT IN ADDITION TO
EVERYTHING ELSE.
THE FOREST FLOORS AND LOADED UP
WITH TREES, DEAD TREES THAT ARE
YEARS OLD AND THEY ARE KINDER
AND LEAVES AND EVERYTHING ELSE.
YOU DROP A CIGARETTE IN THERE,
THE WHOLE FOREST BURNS OUT.
YOU HAVE TO HAVE FOREST
MANAGEMENT.
>> WHAT DO YOU BELIEVE THE
SCIENCE OF CLIMATE CHANGE.
>> I BELIEVE WE HAVE TO DO
EVERYTHING WE CAN TO HAVE E
EMMACULATE AIR AND WATER.
>> DO YOU BELIEVE HUMAN,
POLLUTION AND GREENHOUSE GAS
EMISSIONS CONTRIBUTES TO THE
GLOBAL WARMING OF THIS PLANET?
>> EVERY YEAR I GET THE CALL,
CALIFORNIA IS BURNING.
CALIFORNIA IS BURNING.
IF THAT WERE CLEAN AND IF YOU
HAD GOOD FOREST MANAGEMENT, YOU
WOULD NOT GET THOSE CALLS.
THEY LIVE IN FOREST CITY.
THEY MAINTAIN THEIR FOREST AND
MAINTAIN THEIR FOREST.
SIR, WE HAVE TREES THAT ARE FAR
MORE — THEY IGNITE MUCH EASIER
THAN CALIFORNIA.
THEY SHOULD NOT BE THAT PROBLEM.
I SPOKE THE GOVERNOR ABOUT IT.
I GET ALONG VERY WELL WITH THE
GOVERNOR.
YOU CAN'T EVERY YEAR HAVE
HUNDREDS OF THOUSANDS OF LAND
BURNED TO THE GROUND.
THAT'S BURNING DOWN BECAUSE OF A
LACK OF MANAGEMENT.
>> DO YOU BELIEVE IN SCIENCE OF
CLIMATE CHANGE AND WHY HAVE YOU
ROLLED BACK THE OBAMA CLEAN
POWER PLAN WHICH LIMITED CARBON
EMISSIONS AND CARBON PLAN.
>> THERE IS AN ENERGY CRISIS.
WHY HAVE YOU REL.AAX FUEL ECONO
STAN
STANDARDS?
>> NOT REALLY, IT IS A MUCH
SAFER CAR AND YOU ARE TALKING
ABOUT A TINY DIFFERENCE AND WHAT
WOULD HAPPEN BECAUSE OF THE COST
OF THE CAR, YOU WOULD HAVE AT
LEAST DOUBLE AND TRIPLE THE
NUMBER OF CARS PURCHASED.
IF YOU DID THAT, THE CAR WOULD
BE SAFER AND MUCH CHEAPER.
>> BY THE WAY, WE ARE GOING TO
SEE HOW THAT TURNS OUT.
A LOT OF PEOPLE AGREE WITH ME.
MANY PEOPLE.
CARS GOTTEN SO EXPENSIVE BECAUSE
THEY HAVE COMPUTERS ALL OVER THE
PLACE FOR AN EXTRA LITTLE BIT OF
GAS LEAK.
I AM OKAY WITH ELECTRIC CARS,
TOO.
I AM ALL FOR IT.
I GIVE A BIG INCENTIVES FOR
ELECTRIC CARS.
>> VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN, I WOULD
LIKE YOU TO RESPOND TO THE
PRESIDENT'S CLIMATE CHANGE
RECORD, I ALSO WANT TO ASK YOU
ABOUT A CONCERN, YOU PROPOSED
$2 TRILLION IN GREEN JOBS AND
YOU TALKED ABOUT NEW LIMITS ON
FRACKING AND ENING TDING THE US
FOSSIL FUEL AND ZERO NET
EMISSIONS BY 2050.
THE PRESIDENT SAYS A LOT OF
THESE THINGS WOULD TANK THE
ECONOMY AND COSTS MILLIONS OF
JOBS.
>> HE'S ABSOLUTELY WRONG, NUMBER
ONE.
NUMBER TWO, I WAS ABLE TO BRING
DOWN THE COST OF RENEWABLE
ENERGY TO CHEAPER, CHEAP COAL
AND GAS AND OIL.
NOBODY IS GOING TO BUILD ANOTHER
COLD FIRE PLANT IN AMERICA.
NOBODY IS GOING TO BUILD ANOTHER
OIL PLANT IN AMERICA.
WE ARE GOING TO REMOVE TO RE
RENEWABLE ENERGY.
ELECTRIC VEHICLES, WE'LL PUT
500,000 CHARGING STATIONS AND
ALL THE HIGHWAYS WE'LL BE
BUILDING IN THE FUTURE.
WE'LL BUILD AN ECONOMY THAT'S
GOING TO PROVIDE FOR THE ABLE
FOR US TO TAKE 4 MILLION
BUILDINGS AND MAKE SURE THEY ARE
WEATHERIZED IN A WAY THAT'LL
MAKE SIGNIFICANTLY LESS GAS AND
OIL BECAUSE THE HEAT WILL NOT BE
GOING OUT.
THERE ARE SO MANY THINGS WE CAN
DO NOW TO CREATE THOUSANDS OF
JOBS.
WE CAN GET TO NET ZERO IN TERMS
OF ENERGY PRODUCTION BY 2035.
NOT ONLY COSTING PEOPLE JOBS BUT
CREATING JOBS AND MILLIONS OF
GOOD PAYING JOBS.
NOT 15 BUCKS AN HOUR BUT
PREVAILING WAGE BY HAVING A NEW
INFRASTRUCTURE THAT IN FACT IS
GREEN.
THE FIRST THING I WILL DO AND I
WILL REJOIN THE PARIS ACCORD, I
WILL REJOIN THE PARIS ACCORD
BECAUSE WITH US OUTLOOK AT
WHAT'S HAPPENING?
IT IS ALL FALLING APART.
TALK ABOUT SOMEONE WHO HAS NO
RELATIONSHIP WITH FOREIGN
POLICIES, BRAZIL, THE RAIN
FOREST IN BRAZIL ARE BEING TORN
DOWN AND RIPPED OUT.
MORE CARBON IS ABSORBED THAN
EVERY BIT IS SUBMITTED IN THE
UNITED STATES.
INSTEAD OF DOING SOMETHING ABOUT
THAT, I WOULD BE GATHERING UP
AND MAKING SURE THE COUNTRY OF
THE WORLDC COMING IN AT
$20 BILLION.
HERE IS $20 BILLION, STOP
TEARING DOWN THE FOREST AND IF
YOU DON'T YOU ARE GOING TO HAVE
SIGNIFICANT ECONOMIC
CONSEQUENCES.
>> WHAT ABOUT THE ARGUMENT
PRESIDENT TRUMP BASICALLY SAYS
THAT YOU HAVE TO BALANCE
ENVIRONMENTAL INTERESTS AND
ECONOMIC INTERESTS AND HE'S
DRAWN HIS LINE?
>> WELL, HE HAD NOT DRAWN A
LINE.
HE WANTS TO MAKE SURE THAT
METHANE IS NOT A PROBLEM.
YOU CAN EMIT MORE METHANE
WITHOUT BEING A PROBLEM.
THIS IS A GUY THAT SAYS
DEFECTIVE, IT IS ALL TRUE.
>> YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT A GREEN
NEW DEAL.
IT IS NOT $2 BILLION OR
$3 BILLION.
IT IS $100 TRILLION.
THEY WANT TO RIP IT DOWN AND
REBUILD THE BUILDING.
AIRPLANES ARE OUT OF BUSINESS
AND TWO-CAR SYSTEMS ARE OUT.
THEY WANT TO TAKE OUT THE COWS.
THAT'S NOT TRUE EITHER, RIGHT?
THIS IS A 100 — THAT'S MORE
MONEY THAN OUR COUNTRY CAN MAKE.
>> ALL RIGHT, I ACTUALLY STUDIED
YOUR PLAN AND IT INCLUDES
UPGRADING 4 MILLION BUILDINGS
AND WEATHERIZING 2 MILLION HOMES
OVER FOUR YEARS AND BUILDING
1.5 MILLION ENERGY EFFICIENT
HOMES.
THE QUESTION BECOMES, THE
PRESIDENT IS SAYING AND SOME
PEOPLE WHO SUPPORTED THE
PRESIDENT WOULD SAY THAT SOUNDS
LIKE IT IS GOING TO COST A LOT
OF MONEY AND HURT THE ECONOMY.
>> IT IS GOING TO CREATE
THOUSANDS OF MILLIONS OF GOOD
PAYING JOBS.
>> LET HIM FINISH, SIR.
>> HE DOES NOT KNOW HOW TO DO
THAT.
>> IT IS GOING TO CREATE
MILLIONS OF GOOD PAYING JOBS AND
TAX INCENTIVES FOR PEOPLE TO
WEATHERIZE THAT HE WANTS TO GET
RID OF.
LOOK HOW MUCH WE ARE PAYING NOW
TO DEAL WITH THE HURRICANES AND
DEAL WITH — HE'S AN EXPERT,
MAYBE WE SHOULD DROP A NUCLEAR
WEAPON —
>> I NEVER SAID THAT, YOU MADE
IT UP.
>> WE ARE GOING TO BE IN A
POSITION WHERE WE CAN CREATE
HARD, HARD GOOD JOBS BY MAKING
SURE THE ENVIRONMENT IS CLEAN
AND WE ALL ARE IN A BETTER
SHAPE.
WE SPENT BILLIONS OF DOLLARS
NOW.
BILLIONS ON FLOODS, HURRICANES
AND RISING SEAS.
WE ARE IN REAL TROUBLE.
LOOK AT WHAT'S HAPPENING THE
MIDWEST WITH THE STORMS COMING
THROUGH AND WIPED OUT OUR
SECTIONS AND COUNTIES IN IOWA.
IT IS BECAUSE OF GLOBAL WARMING.
WE MAKE UP OF 15% OF THE WORLD'S
PROBLEM.
WE IN FACT, WE NEED TO GET THE
REST OF THE WORLDCO COME ALONG.
WE HAVE TO GET BACK TO THE PARIS
ACCORD.
>> WHY DIDN'T HE DO IT FOR 47
YEARS?
CHINA SENDS UP REAL DIRT AND
RUSSIA DOES AND INDIA, THEY ALL
DO.
WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE GOOD.
THE GREEN NEW DEAL IS HUNDRED
TRILLION DOLLARS.
>> THAT'S NOT MY PLAN.
THE GREEN NEW DEAL IS NOT MY
PLAN.
>> HE MADE A STATEMENT ABOUT THE
MILITARY, HE SAID I SAID
SOMETHING ABOUT THE MILITARY.
HE AND HIS FRIENDS MADE IT UP
AND I NEVER WENT WITH IT.
HE CALLED THE MILITARY STUPID
BASTARDS.
>> STOP.
PLEASE.
>> GO AHEAD.
THE VICE PRESIDENT, ANSWER THE
FINAL QUESTION.
>> THE FINAL QUESTION, I CAN'T
REMEMBER WHICH.
>> I HAVE A LITTLE TROUBLE
MYSELF.
>> ABOUT THE ECONOMY AND ABOUT
THIS QUESTION OF WHAT IT IS
GOING TO COST.
THE GREEN DNEW DEAL AND
ENVIRONMENTAL CHANGE.
>> THE GREEN NEW DEAL WILL PAY
FOR ITSELF AS WE MOVE FORWARD.
>> DO YOU SUPPORT THE GREEN NEW
DEAL?
>> NO.
I DON'T SUPPORT IT.
I SUPPORT THE BIDEN PLAN.
>> THE RADICAL LEFT.
>> WHICH IS DIFFERENT THAN WHAT
HE CALLED THE RADICAL GREEN NEW
DEAL.
>> AS WE MEET TONIGHT, MILLIONS
OF AMERICANS ARE RECEIVING
MAIL-IN BALLOTS AND GOING TO
VOTE EARLY.
HOW CONFIDENT SHOULD WE BE THAT
THIS WILL BE A FAIR ELECTION.
WHAT ARE YOU PREPARED TO DO OVER
THE NEXT FIVE PLUS WEEKS BECAUSE
IT WILL NOT BE ONLY ELECTION DAY
AND COUNTING BALLOTS.
WHAT ARE YOU PREPARING TO DO TO
REASSURE THE PEOPLE THAT THE
NEXT PRESIDENT WILL BE THE
LEGITIMATE WINNER IN THIS
ELECTION.
MR. VICE PRESIDENT, YOU GO
FIRST.
>> GO TO IWILLVOTE.COM.
HIS OWN HOMELAND SECURITY
DIRECTOR SAYS THERE IS NO
EVIDENCE AT ALL OF MAIL-IN
BALLOTS ARE A SOURCE OF BEING
MANIPULATED AND CHEATING.
THEY SAID THAT.
THE FACT IS THERE IS GOING TO BE
MILLIONS OF PEOPLE BECAUSE OF
COVID, THEY'LL BE VOTING FOR
MAIL-IN BALLOTS LIKE HE DOES BY
THE WAY.
HE SITS BEHIND THE DESK AND
SENDS HIS BALLOT TO FLORIDA.
NUMBER TWO, WE ARE GOING TO MAKE
SURE THOSE PEOPLE WHO WANT TO
VOTE IN PERSON ARE ABLE TO VOTE
BECAUSE THEY'RE NOT POLL
WATCHERS, AND MAKE SURE THEY CAN
SOCIALLY DISTANCE.
THE POLLS ARE OPEN ON TIME.
AND THE POLLS STAY OPEN UNTIL
THE VOTES ARE COUNTED.
THIS IS ALL ABOUT DISSUADING
PEOPLE FROM VOTING.
HE'S TRYING TO SCARE PEOPLE THAT
IT IS NOT LEGITIMATE.
SHOW UP AND VOTE, YOU WILL
DETERMINE THE OUTCOME OF THIS
ELECTION.
VOTE, VOTE.
IF YOU ARE ABLE TO VOTE EARLY IN
YOUR STATE, VOTE EARLY.
IF YOU ARE ABLE TO VOTE
IN-PERSON, VOTE IN-PERSON.
VOTE WHATEVER WAY.
HE CAN'T STOP YOU FROM BEING
ABLE TO DETERMINE THE OUTCOME OF
THIS ELECTION.
IN TERMS OF WHETHER OR NOT WHEN
THE VOTES ARE COUNTED AND
THEY'RE ALL COUNTED, THAT'LL BE
ACCEPTED.
IF I WIN, THAT'LL BE ACCEPTED
AND IF I LOSE, THAT'LL BE
ACCEPTED.
IF HE SAYS HE'S NOT SURE WHAT
HE'S GOING TO ACCEPT, WELL, LET
ME TELL YOU SOMETHING, IF WE GET
THE VOTES, IT IS GOING TO BE ALL
OVER.
HE CAN'T STAND IN POWER.
IT WON'T HAPPEN.
VOTE, JUST MAKE SURE YOU
UNDERSTAND, YOU HAVE IT IN YOUR
CONTROL TO DETERMINE WHAT THIS
COUNTRY IS GOING TO LOOK LIKE
THE NEXT FOUR YEARS.
IS IT GOING TO CHANGE OF FOUR
MORE YEARS OF HIS LIES.
>> MR. PRESIDENT, TWO-MINUTES.
>> WHEN I LISTEN TO JOE TALKING
ABOUT A TRANSITION, THERE HAS
BEEN NO TRANSITION WHEN I WON.
I WON THAT ELECTION AND IF YOU
LOOK AT CROOKED HILLARY CLINTON
AND ALL THE DIFFERENT PEOPLE,
THERE WERE NO TRANSITION BECAUSE
THEY CAME AFTER ME TRYING TO DO
A COUP.
THEY WERE A DISASTER.
THEY WERE A DISGRACE TO OUR
COUNTRY.
WE CAUGHT THEM.
WE CAUGHT THEM ALL.
WE GOT IT ALL ON TAPE.
BY THE WAY, YOU GAVE THE IDEA
FOR THE LOGAN ACT AGAINST
GENERAL FLYNN.
YOU BETTER TAKE A LOOK AT THAT
WE CAUGHT YOU IN A SET.
PRESIDENT OBAMA WAS SIT NGTING
THE OFFICE, HE KNEW ABOUT IT,
TOO.
AS FAR AS THE BALLOTS ARE
CONCERNED, IT IS A DISASTER.
A SOLICITED BALLOT.
S
IF YOU HAVE AN UNSOLICITED.
IT IS FRAUD, THEY FOUND THEM IN
BAGS.
THEY ARE BEING SENT ALL OVER THE
PLACE.
THEY SENT OUT A THOUSAND BL
BALLOTS.
THIS IS GOING TO BE A FRAUD LIKE
YOU HAVE EVER SEEN.
IT IS NICE ON NOVEMBER 3rd AND
YOU WILL WATCH AND YOU WILL SEE
WHO WON THE ELECTION.
I THINK WE'LL DO WELL.
PEOPLE ARE HAPPY WITH THE JOB.
WE MAY NOT KNOW FOR MONTHS
BECAUSE THESE BALLOTS ARE GOING
TO BE ALL OVER.
TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED IN
MANHATTAN OR WHAT HAPPENED IN
NEW JERSEY.
TAKE A LOOK AT WHAT HAPPENED IN
VIRGINIA AND OTHER PLACES.
THEY'RE NOT LOSING 2% OR 1%.
THAT'S TOO MUCH.
THEY'RE LOSING 30% OR 40%.
IT IS A FRAUD.
IT IS A SHAME AND CAN YOU
IMAGINE WHERE THEY SAY YOU HAVE
TO HAVE YOUR BALLOTS IN BY
NOVEMBER 10th, THAT MEANS,
THAT'S SEVEN DAYS AFTER THE
ELECTION AND THEORY SHOULD HAVE
BEEN ANNOUNCED.
>> OKAY.
SIR.
>> TWO-MINUTES.
>> PRESIDENT TRUMP, YOU WILL BE
ABLE TO CONTINUE.
YOU HAVE BEEN CHARGED FOR MONTHS
THAT MAIL-IN BALLOTS IS GOING TO
BE A DISASTER AND IT IS GOING TO
LEAD TO FRAUD BUT IN 2018, THE
LAST MIDTERM ELECTION, 31
MILLION VOTED MAIL-IN, THAT'S
MORE THAN A QUARTER OF ALL
VOTERS THAT YEAR CASTED THEIR
BALLOTS BY MAIL.
NOW THAT MILLIONS HAVE MAIL IN
AND BALLOTS HAVE GONE OUT.
WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT
IT AND ARE YOU COUNTING ON THE
SUPREME COURT INCLUDING JUSTICE
BARRETT TO COUNT ON THIS?
>> I THINK DEFINITELY.
I HOPE WE DON'T NEED THEM IN
TERMS OF THE ELECTIONS ITSELF.
FOR THE BALLOTS, I THINK SO.
WHAT'S HAPPENING I READ TODAY
WHERE AT LEAST 1% OF THE BALLOTS
FOR 2016 WERE INVALIDATED.
THEY TAKE THEM, WE DON'T LIKE
THEM.
>> THERE ARE MILLIONS OF BALLOTS
GOING OUT BY MAIL.
>> YOU DO A SOLICITED BALLOT.
>> I AM ASKING YOU OF THE FACT
OF THE PEOPLE —
>> YOU GO AND VOTE LIKE THEY
USED TO.
>> CHRIS, A SOLICITED BALLOT
WHERE THEY SEND IT IN AND THEY
SEND IT BACK.
THEY HAVE MAILMEN SELLING THE
BALLOTS.
THEY ARE BEING SOLD AND DUMPED
IN THE RIVER.
THIS IS A HORRIBLE THING IN THE
COUNTRY.
>> THERE IS NO EVIDENCE OF
FACTS.
>> THIS IS NOT GOING TO END
WELL.
>> VICE PRESIDENT.
>> YOU DON'T HAVE TO SOLICIT THE
BALLOT.
IT IS SENT TO YOUR HOME.
WHAT WE ARE SAYING IS THAT THERE
HAS TO BE A POSTMARK BY THE TIME
BY ELECTION DAY.
IF IT DOES NOT GET IN UNTIL THE
SEVENTH OR EIGHTH OR NINTH, IT
SHOULD STILL BE COUNTED.
HE'S AFRAID OF COUNTING THE
VOTES.
>> YOU ARE WRONG, YOU ARE WRONG.
>> I WANT TO CONTINUE WITH YOU
ON THIS, VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN.
>> EXCUSE ME.
>> VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN, THE
BIGGEST PROBLEM OVER THE YEARS
WITH MAIL-IN VOTING HAS NOT BEEN
FRAUD HISTORICALLY HAS BEEN
VISIBLE NUMBERS AND HUNDREDS OF
THOUSANDS OF BALLOTS HAVE THROWN
OUT BECAUSE IT IS NOT PROPERLY
FILLED OUT.
THE QUESTION I HAVE IS ARE YOU
CONCERNED WITH THE SUPREME COURT
AND JUSTICE BARRETT IS GOING TO
SETTLE THIS DISPUTE.
>> HERE IS THE DEAL.
WHEN YOU FILE, WHEN YOU GET A
BALLOT AND YOU FILL IT OUT, YOU
ARE SUPPOSED TO HAVE AN
AFFIDAVIT.
IF YOU DIDN'T KNOW, SOMEONE SAY
THIS IS ME, YOU SHOULD BE ABLE
TO.
IF IN FACT YOU CAN VERIFY BEFORE
THE BALLOT IS THROWN OUT.
THAT'S SUFFICIENT TO COUNT THE
BALLOT IF SOMEONE MADE A MISTAKE
AND NOT DOTTING THE CORRECT I.
WHO THEY VOTED FOR, TESTIFIED OR
SAY WHO THEY VOTED FOR AND SAY
IT IS YOU, THAT'S TOTALLY
LEGITIMATE.
>> ALL RIGHT.
>> YOU KNOW IT CAN'T BE DONE.
>> FINAL QUESTION.
IN EIGHT STATES, ELECTION
WORKERS ARE PROHIBITED BY LAW,
EVE
EVEN TAKING THEM OUT ON THE
ENVELOPES, THERE IS GOING TO BE
A HUGE INCREASE IN MAIL-IN
BALLOTING THAT WE ARE NOT GOING
TO KNOW ON ELECTION NIGHT WHO
THE WINNER IS THAT COULD BE DAYS
OR WEEKS OR MONTHS UNTIL WE FIND
OUT WHO THE NEW PRESIDENT IS.
FIRST FOR YOU, SIR, FOR THE VICE
PRESIDENT, I HOPE EITHER OF YOU
WON'T INTERRUPT EACH OTHER.
WILL YOU URGE YOUR SUPPORTERS TO
STAY CALM DURING THIS EXTENDED
PERIOD, NOT TO ENGAGE IN ANY
CIVILIZED UNREST AND WILL YOU
PLEDGE TONIGHT THAT YOU WILL NOT
DECLARE VICTORY UNTIL THE
ELECTION IS INDEPENDENTLY
VERIFIED.
>> I AM URGING MY SUPPORTERS TO
GO INTO THE POLLS AND WATCH
CAREFULLY BECAUSE THAT'S WHAT
HAS TO HAPPEN.
I AM URGING THEM TO DO IT.
AS YOU KNOW THERE WAS A BIG
PROBLEM.
IN PHILADELPHIA THEY WENT TOP
WATCH.
THEY WERE THROWN OUT AND THEY
WERE NOT ALLOWED TO WATCH.
YOU KNOW WHY?
BAD THINGS HAPPEN IN
PHILADELPHIA.
I AM URGING MY PEOPLE, I HOPE IT
IS GOING TO BE FAIR ELECTION.
IF IT IS A FAIR ELECTION, I AM
100% ON BOARD.
IF I SEE TENS OF THOUSANDS OF
BALLOTS BEING MANIPULATED, I
CAN'T GO ALONG WITH THAT.
I WILL TELL YOU WHAT IT MEANS?
IT MEANS THAT YOU HAVE A
FRAUDULENT ELECTION.
THEY'RE NOT EQUIPPED — THESE
PEOPLE ARE NOT EQUIPPED TO
HANDLE IT.
NUMBER TWO, THEY CHEAT.
THEY FOUND BALLOTS IN A WASTE
PAPER BASKET THREE DAYS AGO AND
THEY ALL HAD THE NAME MILITARY
BALLOTS.
THEY ALL HAD THE NAME TRUMP ON
THEM.
>> VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN, FINAL
QUESTION FOR YOU, WILL YOU URGE
YOUR SUPPORTERS TO STAY CALM
WHILE THE VOTE IS COUNTED AND
WILL YOU FLAG NOT TO DECLARE
VICTORY UNTIL THE ELECTION IS
INDEPENDENTLY CERTIFIED.
>> HERE IS THE DEAL, WE COUNT
THE BALLOTS AND YOU POINT IT
OUT.
SOME OF THESE BALLOTS CAN'T BE
OPENED UNTIL ELECTION DAY.
THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF BALLOTS
THAT'S GOING TO TAKE TIME TO DO
IT.
OUR MILITARY, THEY HAVE BEEN
VOTING BY BALLOTS SINCE THE END
OF THE CIVIL WAR.
THAT'S WHAT'S GOING TO HAPPEN.
WHY IS IT FOR THEM — IT IS THE
SAME PROCESS.
IT IS HONEST.
NO ONE HAS ESTABLISHED AT ALL
THAT THERE IS FRAUD RELATED TO
MAIL-IN BALLOTS.
SOMEHOW IT IS A FRAUDULENT
PROCESS?
>> TAKVICE PRESIDENT, GO AHEAD.
>> HE HAS NO IDEA WHAT HE'S
TALKING ABOUT.
THE FACT IS I WILL ACCEPT IT AND
HE
HE WILL TOO.
ONCE THE WINNER IS DECLARED AND
AFTER ALL THE VOTES ARE COUNTED,
THAT'S THE END OF IT.
THAT'LL BE THE END OF IT.
IF IT IS ME, IF IT IS NOT ME, I
WILL SUPPORT THE OUTCOME.
AND I WILL BE A PRESIDENT, NOT
JUST FOR THE DEMOCRATS, I WILL
BE A PRESIDENT FOR DEMOCRATS AND
REPUBLICANS.
>> GENTLEMEN, THAT'S THE END OF
IT.
THIS IS THE END OF THIS DEBATE.
WE'LL LEAVE IT THERE.
TO BE CONTINUED AS IN MORE
DEBATES AS WE GO ON.
PRESIDENT TRUMP, VICE PRESIDENT
BIDEN, WHAT AN INTERESTING HOUR
AND A HALF.
I THANK YOU BOTH FOR PAR
PARTICIPATING.
WE WANT TO THANKS THE CASE
WESTERN UNIVERSITY.
THE NEXT DEBATE IS ONE WEEK FROM
ANOTHER, AT A NEW TIME IN SALT
LAKE CITY.
THE TWO NOMINEE, MIKE PENCE AND
SENATOR KAMALA HARRIS WILL
DEBATE AT 9:00 P.M. EASTERN THAT
NIGHT.
WE HOPE YOU WILL WATCH AND UNTIL
THEN, THANK YOU AND GOOD NIGHT.
>> IT IS HARD TO KNOW WHERE TO
START.
I AM NOT SURE HOW PEOPLE ARE
GOING TO FEEL ABOUT THAT.
WE'LL MAKE A BETTER CASE.
AND WHO DESERVES TO BE
PRESIDENT.
I HAVE TO SPEAK PERSONALLY HERE
THAT SOME OF THE DEBATES.
THAT WAS THE WORST PRESIDENTIAL
DEBATE I HAVE EVER SEEN.
AND MY LIFE A LOT MORE HEAT THAN
90 MINUTES.
I WANT TO GO TO THE ROOM RIGHT
NOW, JOHN CARL, URL TYOU WERE T
IN THE ROOM, YOU COVERED THE
PRESIDENT, YOUR THOUGHTS?
>> THE DEBATE WAS A TOTAL MESS.
PETTY INSULTS AND INTERRUPTIONS.
I WAS IN TOUCH WITH SOME PEOPLE
ON THE FLOOR WERE STUNNED BY
WHAT THEY WERE SEEING
TRANSPIRING ON THAT STAGE.
DONALD TRUMP CAME ACROSS AS A
BULLY.
THERE WERE SOME AVALANCHE OF
STATEMENTS CAME OUT.
JOE BIDEN DID FNOT HAVE A STEAD
PERFORMANCE.
LOOKS LIKE BOTH MEN LOST THIS
DEBATE.
THE REAL LOSER IS DONALD TRUMP.
DONALD TRUMP WAS THE ONE THAT
NEEDED THE CHANGE THE DYNAMIC OF
THIS RACE.
HE'S THE ONE THAT'S LOSING.
HE'S THE ONE THAT NEEDED TO
CHANGE THE TRAJECTORY AND THAT
DID NOT HAPPEN TONIGHT.
>> MAYOR BRUCE?
>> JOE BIDEN'S CAMPAIGN IS
FEELING VERY GOOD RIGHT NOW.
THEY CAME IN TONIGHT WITH A GOAL
NOT TO GET DRAGGED IN THE MUD
BUT TO SPEAK TO THE AMERICAN
PEOPLE OF WHAT THEY FEEL THE
ISSUES THAT MATTERS MOST.
THE CAMPAIGN AIDE TELLS ME EVERY
SINGLE TIME JOE BIDEN WENT
AROUND THE PRESIDENT AND STARE
STRAIGHT DOWN AND SPOKE TO
VOTERS ABOUT A VACCINE AND THE
ECONOMY AND COVID AND ELECTION
INTEGRITY.
EVERY SINGLE ONE OF THOSE
MOMENTS THEY WERE WINNING.
GEORGE, THIS IS REMARKABLE.
A NORMAL DEBATE, IF YOU WERE TO
CALL YOUR OPPONENT A CLOWN,
RACIST AND THE WORST PRESIDENT
TO TELL THEM TO SHUT UP OR
SHUSH.
HERE TONIGHT THAT WAS PART OF A
CONCERTED STRATEGY BY JOE BIDEN
TO SHOW THAT HE CAN KEEP HIS
COOL ACTUALLY.
PART OF AN EFFORT TO SHOW THAT
HE CAN BE THE ADULT IN THE ROOM
AND THE LEADER THAT CAN GUIDE
THIS COUNTRY OUT OF THIS REALLY
TURBULENT TIME.
OVER AND OVER HE'S COMPLETELY
REFUSED TO GIVE CREDENCE TO THE
PRESIDENT'S ATTACK.
THE TWO OF THEM WERE TALKING
OVER AND OVER EACH OTHER.
IN THE ROOM WAS REALLY
ASTOUNDING.
IT WAS APPARENT AS YOU WATCH.
THE PRESIDENT WAS TURNED TO THE
FORMER PRESIDENT AND POINTING
HIS FINGERS AND JOE BIDEN IS
STARING STRAIGHT DOWN THAT
CAMERA AND SPEAKING TO THE
AMERICAN PEOPLE AND MAKING HIS
POINT.
THE BIDEN CAMPAIGN SAYS THE
PRESIDENT WAS A CHAOS.
>> WAS THAT THE DEBATE YOU
PREPARED FOR?
>> NO.
WHAT I WILL TELL YOU WAS THAT
SOME COMMENTARY READY, SOME
PEOPLE MISSING SOME THINGS.
FIRST OFF, IT WAS THE VICE
PRESIDENT'S JOB TO REASSURE.
I DON'T THINK THAT WAS A
REASSURANCE PERFORMANCE BY THE
VICE PRESIDENT TONIGHT.
HE LOOKS SHAKY AND HIS NUMBERS
WERE WAY OFF AND HE WANDERED OFF
AND HE USED A LOT OF NAMES
CALLING AND INSULTING LANGUAGE.
I HAVE TO DISAGREE WITH MARY OR
WHAT SHE'S CONVEYING FROM THE
BIDEN FOLKS.
I THINK ION THE TRUMP'S SIDE WA
TOO HOT.
YOU COME IN AND BE AGGRESSIVE.
I THINK THAT WAS THE RIGHT THING
TO BE AGGRESSIVE BUT THAT WAS
TOO HOT.
WITH ALL THAT HEAT, THAT
POTENTIALLY CAN'T BE FIXED.
>> MAYBE OR MAYBE NOT.
WE'LL HAVE TO SEE.
ON THE TRUMP'S SIDE.
ON THE BIDEN'S SIGH, I AM
CONCERNED THAT IF HIS PROBLEM
CAN BE FIXED.
IF YOU CAN'T BE CONSISTENTLY
COHERENT, PEOPLE ARE GOING TO
WONDER WHETHER YOU WILL BE ABLE
TO DO THAT WHEN YOU SIT BEHIND
THE DESK IN THE OVAL OFFICE.
THAT'S THE ISSUE I GOT TONIGHT.
>> I THINK JOE BIDEN DID A SMART
TRAGEDY.
THE FACT THAT THE PRESIDENT IS
TOTALLY OUT OF CONTROL AND CHRIS
WALSH BASICALLY SAID THAT.
THE PRESIDENT NEEDS TO CHANGE
PEOPLE PERCEPTION.
HE LOOKS LIKE THE BULLY THAT
PEOPLE SAW THREE AND A HALF
YEARS.
THE VICE PRESIDENT WAS STEADY
AND WHEN HE TALKED ABOUT COVID
OR HEALTHCARE AND HE LOOKED AT
RIGHT AT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE AND
WHEN HE TALKED ABOUT THE
INTEGRITY OF BRINGING PEOPLE
TOGETHER AND WHEN HE REBUTTED
HIM ABOUT HIS SON, AND I THOUGHT
THOSE WERE HIS BEST MOMENTS.
WHO WOULD NOT GET RATTLED WHEN
YOU HAVE SOMEBODY SCREAMING AT
YOU ALL NIGHT.
CHRIS WALSH BASICALLY SAID IT.
HOLD ON HERE, THERE ARE RULES
HERE.
THE PRESIDENT HURTS HIMSELF ONLY
HAVING THE FIFTH GEAR.
>> WE'LL HAVE TO DO IT ON GMA
TOMORROW.
WHAT IS THE LEAD OF THIS DEBATE?
>> WELL, YOU KNOW AS WE ARE
GOING INTO THIS TONIGHT, ONE OF
THIS I
THE THINGS WE ARE TALKING ABOUT
IS THIS COUNTRY.
THE BACKDROP OF THIS DEBATE IS
CORONAVIRUS, 200,000 LOOIVES HA
BEEN LOST AND THE ECONOMY,
PEOPLE ARE EXHAUSTED.
THEY WANT TO KNOW WHEN IS THIS
GOING TO END AND WHO HAS A PLAN
TO GUIDE IT THROUGH?
YOU HAVE TO WONDER TONIGHT IF IT
DID ANYTHING TO FIX THAT
ARGUMENT AND PUT PEOPLE AT HOME.
DID IT PUT ANYONE AT PEACE ABOUT
THE FUTURE OF OUR COUNTRY AND
THE IMMEDIATE MONTHS AND YEARS
TO COME AND HOW WE NAVIGATE OUR
WAY OUT OF THIS MOMENT.
WE TALKED ABOUT PRESIDENT TRUMP,
AND THIS IS A UNIQUE SITUATION
OF WHAT HE'LL SAY HERE IS WHAT I
AM GOING TO DO.
I DID NOT HEAR A LOT OF THAT
TONIGHT.
JOE BIDEN IS TEMPERAMENT AND
TONED.
THEY DID NOT HEAR ENOUGH FROM
EITHER ABOUT THEIR SPECIFIC
PLANS OF GUIDING THIS NATION
FORWARD.
>> ONE THING IT IS GETTING A LOT
OF NOTICE ONLINE, THE PRESIDENT
REFUSED TO CONDEMN WHITE
SUPREMACISTS.
>> YES.
>> HE ENDED UP SAYING STAND BACK
AND STANDBY.
I CAN'T SAY I WAS SURPRISED BUT
IT IS A MOMENT ESPECIALLY A
MOMENT IN THE COMMUNITY HEARD
LOUD AND CLEAR.
>> WE'LL TAKE A QUICK BREAK,
WE'LL BE RIGHT BACK.

>>> BACK NOW TO OUR PRESIDENTIAL
DEBATE.
JOE BIDEN HAD A TOUGHER JOB
COMING INTO THE NIGHT.
>> LOOK, I THINK IT IS A TOTAL
FOOD FIGHT.
I DON'T THINK EITHER OF THESE
CANDIDATES WON.
THERE WERE MOMENTS THE PRESIDENT
WAS SETTING UP FOR CHOICE IN
THIS ELECTION.
THEY JUST EVOLVED AND TOO
QUICKLY.
I AGREE WITH JOHN CARL, THE
PRESIDENT IN A WAY HE DOES NO
COMMAND THE STAGE IN A
PRESIDENTIAL WAY, HE'S NOT
GETTING AHEAD.
HE'S DOWN SEVEN POINTS.
I THINK HE'S STILL DOWN SEVEN
POINTS.
>> I THINK THIS DEBATE WAS AN
UNMITIGATED DISASTER.
TRUMP'S PERFORMANCE HAS SHOWN US
WHY OUR COUNTRY IS AT THIS POINT
WHERE WE ARE.
JOE BIDEN'S CHALLENGE AS MY
GRANDFATHER WOULD SAY, IT WAS SO
FOOLISH, IT WAS A WAY FOR HIM TO
CUT THROUGH.
IT WAS OUT OF CONTROL.
THE PEOPLE ARE LOOKING FOR HOPE
AND REAL DIRECTION AND
LEADERSHIP.
JOE BIDEN DID THE BEST HE CAN
AND FRANKLY OUT OF THE GATE HE
DID A MUCH BETTER JOB.
IT GOT A LITTLE UNSETTLED AND
GOTTEN A LITTLE TOO HOT.
HE HAD A HUGE CHALLENGE BECAUSE
DONALD TRUMP REALLY, REALLY WAS
A DISASTER AND I AM REALLY
AFRAID FOR OUR COUNTRY
UNFORTUNATELY IF HE HAS ANOTHER
TERM.
>> THANK YOU.
YOUR THOUGHTS?
>> WELL, I THINK THIS IS
EMBARRASSMENT IF YOU WERE A
FOREIGN COUNTRY AND LOOKING AT
US RIGHT NOW AND THANK YOU
WATCHED THAT, THAT'S AN
EMBARRASSMENT.
>> THAT FALLS AT THE FEET OF
DONALD TRUMP.
I THINK THERE WAS A WINNER
TONIGHT AND THAT WINNER IS JOE
BIDEN.
IF YOU ARE THE INCUMBENT, YOU
HAVE TO CONVINCE EVERYBODY IS
GOOD AND PUT ME THROUGH ANOTHER
FOUR YEARS.
AS YOU WATCH THAT DEBATE, YOU
ARE NOT THINKING EVERYTHING IS
GREAT IN AMERICA RIGHT NOW.
JOE BIDEN HAD GOOD MOMENTS AND
SOME MOMENTS WHERE HE HAD A HARD
TIME DEALING WITH IT.
AS I SAID GOING INTO THIS, THE
DEBATE DONALD TRUMP IS A BULLY
AND THE MODERATOR TRIED HIS BEST
TO CONTROL IT.
JOE BIDEN TRIED TO FEND IT OFF
BUT IN THE END WHEN YOU LOOK AT
IT, DONALD TRUMP HAD TO CONVINCE
THE AMERICAN PUBLIC THAT FOUR
MORE YEARS OF THIS IS A GOOD
THING.
IT IS THE EXACT OPPOSITE WILL
CONCLUDE TO AFTER WATCHING THAT
DEBATE.
>> I WONDER WHAT MODERATORS ARE
GOING FORWARD.
TWO MORE PRESIDENTIAL DEBATES.
>> I SAID GOING IN TAKES A LION
TAMER IN A DEBATE WITH DONALD
TRUMP AND YOU NEEDED TEN LION
TAMERS TONIGHT.
CHRIS WALLACE TRIED AND AT SOME
POINT YOU HAVE TO STOP IT.
IT WAS NOT A PRESIDENTIAL
DEBATE.
IT WAS MUD WRESTLING AND AS
DAVID POINTED OUT IN THE MIDDLE
OF A PANDEMIC.
I HAVE BEEN IN TOUCH WITH SOME
VOTERS WHO I MET WITH OUR
CROSS-COUNTRY TRIP.
THERE WAS ONE MAN WHO WAS
LEANING TOWARDS TRUMP.
GOING INTO THE DEBATE TONIGHT,
HE LEANED TOWARDS BIDEN.
HE DID NOT LIKE BIDEN DROPPING
TO THE LEVEL OF DONALD TRUMP.
AND MILITARY TONIGHT AS YOU
KNOW, GEORGE, I AM IN TOUCH WITH
A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THE MILITARY.
ONE OF THEM SAID THIS TO ME
TONIGHT THAT THIS WAS THE MOST
SHAMEFUL INTERACTION BETWEEN TWO
LEADERS.
THANK YOU, WE'LL TAKE ONE MORE
BREAK.

>>> SARAH FAGAN AND GOVERNOR
CHRISTIE, OF COURSE YOU HELP
PRESIDENT TRUMP PREP FOR THIS
DEBATE.
IT WAS RAW AND CONTENTIOUS.
>> IT WAS HOTTER THAN IT WAS
PLANNED TO BE.
I THINK THE ADVISE FOR THE
PRESIDENT WAS TO BE AGGRESSIVE
BUT IT WAS HOTTER AND PLANNED TO
BE.
AND SO DID IT HELP THE
PRESIDENT?
I THINK WE HAVE TO SEE AS TIME
GOES ON.
THESE PEOPLE GET DIFFERENT
PERSPECTIVE ON THINGS AS THEY
MOVE AWAY FROM THIS.
EARLIER TONIGHT I THINK THE
PROBLEMS THAT THE PRESIDENT HAVE
TONIGHT CAN POTENTIALLY BE FIXED
AND TURN THAT HEAT DOWN A LITTLE
BIT.
I THINK SOME OF THE PROBLEMS FOR
VICE PRESIDENT BIDEN QUITE
FRANKLY, THE PRESIDENT'S
INTERRUPTIONS KIND OF SAVED HIM
AT TIMES WAS NOT SEEING ON THE
BALL.
GETTING NUMBERS WRONG AND
WANDERING IN MID-SENTENCE AND
NOT BEING ABLE TO FINISH
THOUGHTS.
THOSE ARE A CONCERN OF PEOPLE.
THAT WAS SOME OF THE CONCERNS
COMING IN.
CAN THAT PROBLEM BE FIXED?
I DON'T KNOW.
I AM SURE THE BIDEN FOLKS OBJECT
AS WE WATCH IT TONIGHT AND THE
CAMPAIGN.
THERE ARE WORK TO BE DONE ON
BOTH SIDES.
PRESIDENT TRUMP HAS BEEN
ATTACKING JOE BIDEN FOR MONTHS
BUT THIS IS THE FIRST TIME THEY
WERE FACE-TO-FACE ACTUALLY IN
THE SAME ARENA.
HOW DO YOU THINK JOE BIDEN FAIR?
>> YOU HAVE TO HAVE MANY TOOLS
IN THE TOOL BOX.
YOU CAN'T HAVE A HAMMER AND KEEP
ONGOING AT IT.
PEOPLE ARE EXHAUSTED BY DONALD
TRUMP.
IF ANYTHING THEY WERE LIKE
ENOUGH ALREADY.
JOE BIDEN HAD STEADY MOMENTS
WHEN HE LOOKED AT THE CAMERA AND
TALKED TO THE PEOPLE AND COVID
AND WHAT WE GOT TO DO TO TURN IT
AROUND.
HE HAD STEADY MOMENTS AND ALSO
AS SMILE.
NO TIME DID EITHER TRUMP SMILED
OR LOOKED AT THE CAMERA.
EVERYTHING WAS ABOUT JOE BIDEN
AND TA TATTACKING.
YOU CAN'T HAVE THAT KIND OF
CONSTANT DRILLING WITHOUT
ANESTHESIA.
I THINK TRUMP LOST THIS DEBATE.
>> TRUMP PAID $750 INCOME TAXES
IN 2015 AND 2016, TRUMP FLAT OUT
DENIED IT AND SAID HE PAID
MILLIONS IN TAXES.
DO YOU THINK AMERICANS BELIEVE
THAT ANSWER?
I THINK HE HANDLED HIMSELF FINE
IN THAT QUESTION.
IT IS CONSISTENT OF WHAT HE'S
BEEN SAYING IN FOUR YEARS.
I THINK PEOPLE TOOK AWAY FROM
THE DEBATE OF THE TOWN, THE
TENDER AND THE FOOT FD FIGHT.
FOR PRESIDENT TRUMP, THAT'S A
PROBL
PROBLEM.
HE NEEDED TO GO OUT AND MAKE IT
A CHOICE.
HE HAD MOMENTS IN THIS DEBATE
BUT THEN IT GOES ON AGAIN.
IT IS A STATUS QUO OF THE
SITUATION FOR THE DEBATE WHICH
MEANS HE DID NOT GET AHEAD.
>> CORONAVIRUS WAS A BIG ISSUE
AND 56% OF AMERICANS SAY THEY
DISPROVED OF PRESIDENT TRUMP'S
HANDLING OF IT.
20% OF THE DEATH TOLL THAT ONLY
4% OF THE WORLD'S POPULATION.
DID YOU THINK JOE BIDEN'S ATTACK
OF THE PRESIDENT AND HIS
HANDLING WERE AFFECTED?
>> DONALD TRUMP CONTINUED TO TRY
TO BLAME THIS ON CHINA AND HE
TRIED TO SAY THERE WOULD HAVE
BEEN MORE DEATHS AND NOBODY
BEL
BELIEVED THAT.
IF WE JUST REQUIRED EVERYONE TO
WEAR A MASK, DONALD TRUMP HAS NO
REB
REBUTTAL TO THAT.
HE DID THAT REBUTTAL TO DONALD
TRUMP'S CLAIM THAT HE'S THE BEST
AFRICAN-AMERICAN PRESIDENT.
THEY ARE BEING HURT BY THIS
PANDEMIC AND YOU HAVE DONE
NOTHING TO REMEDY THAT.
>> GOVERNOR CHRISTIE, IT WAS A
DIRECT QUESTION, PRESIDENT TRUMP
WAS ASKED TO DENOUNCE, CONDEMN
WHITE SUPREMACIST GROUP.
HE SAID IT FIRST.
SURE, I WILL DO IT AND WHAT DO
YOU WANT ME TO SAY.
ALL HE SAID WAS STAND BACK AND
STANDBY AND RECEIVING IT AS A
CALL FOR ACTION.
WHY DOES HE HAVE AIFFICULT
TIME, WHY NOT CONDEMN WHITE
SUPREMACIST?
>> HE SAID IT ALL THE WAY BACK
TO CHARLOTTESVILLE.
HE SAID I DENOUNCED WHITE
SUPREMACISTS AND NEO-NAZIS.
BY THAT POINT THE HEAT WAS SO
HIGH AND THEY WERE BOTH YELLING
AT EACH OTHER.
TRUMP IS YELLING AND BIDEN WAS
YELLING AND CHRIS WALLACE WAS
Y
YELLING AND TRYING TO GET
BETWEEN THE TWO OF THEM.
I HEARD HIM SAID IT BEFORE.
I DON'T THINK HE HAD ANY PROBLEM
SAYING IT.
TELL ME WHAT YOU WANT TO SAY.
I THINK IT WAS A LITTLE TRUMP'S
S
SARCASM, TOO.
I BELIEVE THAT WAS TRUMP BEING
SARCASTIC.
WELL, HE SAID HE WAS ALSO BEING
SARCASTIC OF INJECTING WITH
INFECTANT.
>> I AM NOT GOING TO GO THROUGH
THAT.
HE FEELS FRUSTRATED AND HE SAID
A NUMBER OF TIMES THAT HE
DENO
DENOUNCED WHITE SUPREMACIST AND
NEO-NAZIS.
>> YVETTE?
>> THE FEAR OF WHITE SUPREMACY,
THE FEAR OF WHAT'S HAPPENING IN
OUR COUNTRY AT LEAST BLACK
PEOPLE HAVE FEEL AND THE LARGEST
CIVIL RIGHTS MOVEMENT OF TIME.
HE CAN'T SAY AND I THINK — DID
YOU HEAR THAT?
THAT'S SPEARED IN THE HEART OF
SO MANY PEOPLE, THE IDEA THAT
YOU ARE SAYING STANDBY?
FOR WHAT?
WE KNOW HOW HE FEELS ABOUT THIS
ELECTION.
WE KNOW THOSE INDIVIDUALS TAKE
TO HEART OF WHAT HE SAYS.
AND ALSO WHAT HAPPENED WITH THE
YOUNG MAN WHO SHOT THE
PROTESTERS.
HE KNOWS HIS WORDS MATTER AND HE
SAYS IT INTENTIONALLY.
>> DO YOU HAVE A PLAN OR YOU
TRADE HIM?
NOTHING ABOUT DONALD TRUMP THAT
SAYS I WANT TO PLAY ANOTHER FOUR
YEARS.
IN THE END IN HIS REFERENDUM AND
HE DID NOT MAKE IT.
HE MADE IT MORE ABOUT HIMSELF
AND THERE WAS NOTHING APPEALING
THAT WAS ABOUT DONALD TRUMP.
THAT'S A FAILURE FOR DONALD
TRUMP.
>> THANKS TO THE ROUNDTABLE,
THAT'S IT FOR US TONIGHT.
THANKS FOR JOINING US, BE SURE
TO STAY RIGHT HERE ON ABC NEWS.
IT BEGINS RIGHT AFTER THE BREAK.
