First debate: Joe Biden brands President Donald Trump a liar and tells him to “shut up”

In the first of three debates ahead of November’s US Presidential polls, Democratic challenger Joe Biden branded President Donald Trump a liar and told him to “shut up” as the pair clashed in a bad-tempered start to their first televised debate.

“The fact is that everything he is saying so far is simply a lie. I’m not here to call out his lies. Everybody knows he’s a liar,” Biden said.

Tension was palpable from the opening minutes, with the pair interrupting each other repeatedly, leading Biden to lash out at one point: “Will you shut up, man!”

President Donald Trump claimed several times that Joe Biden wanted to shut down the country to address the coronavirus. “He wants to shut down this country and I want to keep it open,” Trump said.

During a prolonged segment on race, the two fought over who would handle issues of race, culminating in Biden calling Trump a racist.

While Biden was making a point during the first presidential debate in Cleveland about the Trump administration’s trade deals with China not having the desired effect, Trump jumped in. He resurrected past claims about the former vice president’s son Hunter working overseas.

Trump said Hunter Biden reaped millions in ill-gotten profit from China and other overseas interests, accusations that have been repeatedly debunked. Biden shot back, “None of that is true.” He then added of Trump, “His family, we could talk all night.”
