Trump is behind in the polls and so had to show himself this debate. He therefore immediately got off the starting blocks aggressively. Trump interrupted Biden where he could. The former vice president was clearly frustrated by this. “Shut up now, man,” exclaimed Biden angrily. “This is so unpresidential.”
Debate leader Chris Wallace, a respected Fox News journalist, was unable to maintain order from the start. He called President Trump to order several times. But he did not care about anything. “It would benefit the country so much more if we could let both candidates speak with fewer interruptions. I’m talking to you, ”Wallace said admonishing the president. Who then pointed to Biden: “But he also often gets fed up.”
All topics were discussed: the Supreme Court, corona, the economy, racism and police violence, the climate and also the integrity of the elections. But in those ninety minutes, the voter has not become much wiser about those subjects and what exactly the two candidates intend to do with it.
So there was room for many attacks. Biden called Trump “the worst president we’ve ever had.” He stated that under Trump the country has become “weaker, sicker, poorer, more divided and more violent.” He was critical of Trump’s approach to the corona crisis and argued that Trump should trade the golf course for the Oval Office more often.
Biden tried to address the American people directly on several occasions. When it came to corona, he looked into the camera and pointed out all the American families where there is now an empty chair at the dining table. When Trump attacked him on his son Hunter Biden who was employed by Ukrainian and Chinese companies when Biden was vice president, he defended his son. He also pointed to the drug problem Hunter is trying to overcome – his son was expelled from the US military for cocaine use. A topic with which Biden tried to connect with the Americans who are suffering from the opiate crisis in the country.
Trump argued that Biden had seldom accomplished anything in his long political career. “In 47 months I have achieved more than you have in 47 years.” He attacked Biden for his views in the Black Lives Matter protests that are taking place across the country. “You can say the words law and order don’t even pronounce. ” Trump regularly warns that under President Biden, the riots will expand and chaos will increase.
With his tough style, Trump is getting his own supporters on the bench. The president steam-waltzed over both Biden and moderator Chris Wallace. He was dominant and showed that no one tells him what to do and that no one is silencing him at all. The hard core of Trump supporters loves that. This is exactly why they love their president so much.
But Trump already has that hard core, of course. The vast majority of Americans have already decided who to vote for. In the end, both Trump and Biden tried with this debate that very small group of doubting voters in the main swing states reach. The suburban and suburban women, for example, or the Latinos in Florida. The question is whether those groups of voters have seen anything in this debate that convinced them.
Biden often seemed overwhelmed by Trump, and didn’t always get his words right. But he stayed upright. He was nowhere near the confused, demented presidential candidate as the Republicans portray Biden in their videos. With that, the Trump campaign ensured that the bar was set low for Biden.
