The American presidential debate clashed in chaotic and messy on Tuesday night between US president Donald Trump and Former Vice President Joe Biden.
Report claims that the 90-minute encounter was characterised by frequent interruptions, mostly from Trump and insult with Biden calling the president a clown which made the debate messy.
Chris Wallace, Fox News anchor and moderator of the night, really had a hard time controlling both candidates, who talked over each other.
They squared off on the coronavirus pandemic, crime, taxes, economy, climate change, election integrity, among others.
Here are some key moments of the encounter hosted by the Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio.
“Will you shut up, man? This is so unpresidential”, Biden responded as Trump interrupted him while answering a question on the president’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Amy Barrett.
During the COVID-19 segment, Trump told Biden to stop using the word “smart” because there was nothing smart about him.
“Did you use the word smart? So, you said you went to Delaware State (University) but you forgot the name of your college.
“You didn’t go to Delaware State (University). You graduated either the lowest or almost the lowest in your class.
“Don’t ever use the word smart with me because you know what, there is nothing smart about you”, Trump said.
The debate got heated with Trump interrupting Biden, but the moderator urged the president to allow his rival finish and then get the final word on the economy segment.
“Biden responded: “No, it is hard to get any word in with this clown”.
During the debate, the most remarkable moments was when the moderator asked the president if he was willing to condemn white supremacists and armed groups fueling violence in the country.
However, Donald said he was willing to do that, but quickly noted that the violence he had seen was from the left wing.
He insisted that the opposition was responsible for the violence protests across the country and not white supremacists.
Donald Trump renewed his attacks on mail-in ballot, describing it as a disaster and adding that it would be a fraud on a scale never seen before.
Trump was asked if he would refrain from declaring victory until the election results were officially announced, he said he would only go along with that if the exercise was credible.
Biden dismissed the president’s threat, saying there was nothing he could do once the results were announced and he lost.
The presidential went messy and chaotic between Donald Trump and Joe Biden.
