The first presidential confrontation was a difficult event to watch. CNN’s senior commentator Dana Bash summed up the incident in shock: “It was a sailing show.” American viewers, many of whom are locked in their homes due to corona restrictions and attached to websites, cable broadcasts and various viewing apps, have shrunk in their armchairs.
President Donald Trump has erupted in the words of former Vice President Joe Biden in almost every sentence. No argument was completed, and it was not possible to analyze a trial or think about what the candidates said. At least three times, Fox News presenter Chris Wallace has warned the president. ‘You do not abide by the rules agreed with your party’, ‘You do not allow talking’, ‘You must stop interfering’, Waltz addressed him. At one point the president asked, “Why don’t you wake him, Joe?” And moderator Wallace replied, “Honestly, because you’re the one interfering.”
It seems that while American parents may not be able to send their children to kindergarten and the lower grades, tonight they received their share in a discourse appropriate to kindergarten age. “I understand that I have now come to a confrontation with you Chris, and not with him” the president told the facilitator immediately after the first time he was asked not to interfere.
At other times during the confrontation, President Trump was asked to condemn the white-racial upper-class groups that attacked protesters, but refused to do so, saying the Antifa group was scary and harmful. Biden also attacked: “Impossible with this clown” and “Be quiet”, “Shut up” and more.
Without involving family members
The conflict was divided into six issues, with 15 minutes devoted to each issue: the state of the economy, corona disease, taxation, fairness of elections, race and urban violence, and climate.
Biden has repeatedly addressed viewers directly during the confrontation calling on them to vote in advance in postal envelopes, run in elections and also try to explain to them that the danger in appointing Chief Justice Amy Connie Bratt is that they will lose their health insurance due to a pending case before the Supreme Court this November.
However, the conversation did not reach issues of interest during most of the 90 minutes of the confrontation. Trump attacked Biden’s son, Hunter, accused Biden of involving him in international deals while Biden was vice president and said Hunter Biden was taking drugs.
Biden responded by revealing “Livni had challenging times in his career, and it was difficult for him to find a job like many Americans.” But Biden has denied Trump’s allegations about his involvement in international deals and has drawn the discussion to the fact that Trump insulted Americans who served in the battle, like his dead son, Boiden.
Trump replied, “I did not talk about Bo. I talked about Hunter who was also fired by the military because he was addicted to drugs and could not work until he made a fortune in Ukraine.” At this point Biden looked at the camera and said it was a shame that the president was involving family members. “Do you want me to start talking here about the ethics of your family members, too?”
In other parts of the confrontation, Trump accused Biden of being in front of him by the radical sections of the Democratic Party, but Biden stressed that he did not support the ceasefire budgeting approach nor the “Green New Deal” proposed by Bernie Sanders. Trump responded: “He will lose the support of his party’s radical wing.”
Trump promised to disclose his capital reports (which he also promised 4 years ago)
In another part of the confrontation, moderator Chris Wallace demanded answers from Trump about not paying the federal tax. Trump, however, insisted he was paying large sums of state tax and other taxes and noted that he would disclose his capital reports soon, when the examination of the materials by the authorities was completed (which he also promised 4 years ago).
A few hours before the confrontation, Biden issued his capital statement and the amount of federal tax he paid, about $ 300,000, compared to the $ 750 paid by Trump in federal tax. When asked about this in a confrontation, Trump explained that the 2017 tax returns and before, apply to the period of being a contractor and businessman and that he did not break the law, but used existing laws.
To this Biden replied, “When I choose, I will change the laws so that the tax laws will not allow use for the sake of the millionaires, but for the sake of the poor.”
