Nashville: Democrat Joe Biden reiterated his attack on U.S. President Donald Trump’s handling of the coronavirus pandemic in the final debate on Thursday before the November 3 election. The family made baseless allegations of corruption.
Compared with the first presidential debate in September, Republican Trump initially adopted a more restrained tone, but he quickly derailed because of his constant interruptions. However, the conflict on Thursday still showed that the two men attacked each other with little respect for each other.
The television broadcast in Nashville, Tennessee is one of Trump’s last remaining opportunities to reshape the pandemic-led campaign that has killed more than 221,000 people in the United States. Opinion polls show that Trump is following Biden, despite fiercer competition in some battlefield states that may decide the election.
“Anyone who’s responsible for that many deaths should not remain president of the United States of America,” Biden said.
Trump defended his approach to the outbreak and claimed the worst of the pandemic was in the past.
“We’re rounding the corner,” said Trump, who has played down the virus for months. “It’s going away.”
Trump also claimed that the vaccine may be in “a few weeks.” Most experts, including administrative officials, said that the vaccine will not be widely available until mid-2021.
Several U.S. states, including Ohio’s election swing state, reported a record-breaking single-day increase in COVID-19 infections on Thursday, proving that the pandemic is accelerating.
After the pandemic broke out, the conflict on Thursday turned to a quick exchange of fire over which candidate had inappropriate foreign entanglements.
Trump once again accused Biden and his son Hunter of engaging in unethical behavior in China and Ukraine. There is no evidence to support these allegations, and Biden called these allegations false and credible.
Trump’s efforts to expose Hunter Biden’s business dealings with Ukraine led to the president’s impeachment. Since the President entered the White House in 2017, the President and his children have been accused of conflicts of interest involving the family’s international real estate and hotel business.
