“Everybody knows he’s a liar.” Joe Biden

“Don’t ever use smart with me” – Donald Trump


If you tuned into the debate last night, I’m sure you would agree that it was equivalent to a real housewives reunion. I mean, I haven’t been on edge watching something since the finale of How to Get Away with Murder. Trump and Biden went head to head discussing America’s most pressing issues including, Breonna Taylor & defunding the police, COVID-19, healthcare, economy, climate change, and racism.

If you missed watching the debate, here is the full video.

For highlights and analysis of the debate, here are a few links:

“Will you shut up, man” Joe Biden

Trump interrupted his way through the entire debate, trying to force Biden into frustration and defeat. Biden at moments, let Trump’s manner get to him but managed to let us know he would raise the minimum wage to $15, create more jobs, join the global climate agreement and encourage net-zero emissions.

It is apparent that these two stand opposite on subject matters. Here are some examples.

Student Debt
Trump: Proposes to remove loan subsidies and forgiveness for public service and create one income-driven plan
Biden: Proposes to forgive student debt for low-income graduates

Climate Change

Trump:???
Biden: Understands the science and proposes to join the global climate agreement and encourage net-zero emissions

Healthcare
Trump: Proposes to cut spending for Medicaid & Medicare
Biden: Proposes that he wants to create a public option
