PRESIDENT Donald Trump and his challenger, Joe Biden’s final debate on Thursday, was a starkly more civil affair than their messy first showdown.
But that did not prevent the pair from clashing on everything from immigration to racism and even Adolf Hitler.
With the pandemic at the top of American voters’ minds, Biden pledged to get a handle on the virus that has killed over 220,000 in the US — while charging that “anyone who’s responsible for that many deaths” should not remain president.
“We’re about to go into a dark winter. A dark winter, I will end this. Trump, just past his own brush with the virus, offered his usual sunny take despite cases surging again. It’s going away,” he said.
Biden fumed over the report this week that parents could not be located for 545 migrant children separated from their families at the border with Mexico due to US immigration policy.
“Those kids are alone. Nowhere to go. Nowhere to go. It’s criminal, violates every notion of who we are as a nation,” Biden said.
Trump retorted that the children were being “so well taken of” while separated from their families.
“They’re in facilities that were so clean,” he said.
