The last United States presidential debate between Republican and Democratic candidates created an unusual scene: Joe Biden was surprised to hear the president and candidate for reelection, Donald Trump, saying “I take full responsibility for this” when asked about the pandemic.
Biden had criticized Trump’s statement moments before, when the president said, “We are learning to live with it [o coronavírus]. We have no choice. We can’t lock ourselves in the basement, like Joe does “.
The Democrat countered: “He is saying that we are learning to live with this. But people are learning to die with this”. And he said the Republican did not warn that the virus was dangerous and did not take responsibility.
Was when Trump said “I take full responsibility”, but then blamed China. “It is not my fault that this [o vírus] arrived here. It’s not even Joe’s fault. It’s China’s fault, “said the American president.
Here is an excerpt from the debate:
In the debate, which had a more civilized climate than the previous one, the candidates were able to discuss Covid, racism, immigration and other topics. See 5 highlights from the last clash between Trump and Biden before the November 3 presidential election.
The mediator this time, Kristen Welker, was praised even by Trump for conducting the debate. The White House correspondent conducted the meeting smoothly and did not need to use the “mute button” created after the series of interruptions and attacks in the 1st debate.
