DONALD Trump and Joe Biden faced off in their first presidential debate ahead of 2020 US election in Cleveland, Ohio.
The US presidential election is set to take place on November 3, with early voting already underway in several states.
The debate was by Fox News journalist Chris Wallace who was accused of “helping Biden” avoid tough questions.
Chris had ‘bigged’ himself up priot to the battle akin to a World Heavyweight Boxing match in press releases claiming he “did not hold any punches”.
Trump predicted that Wallace would play dirty telling Fox Radio that while he had a “lot of respect” for Wallace, he was “willing to bet that he won’t ask Biden tough questions.”
“He’ll ask me tough questions, and it’ll show, it’ll be unfair,” Trump said. “He’ll be controlled by the radical left.”
Topics debated included the coronavirus pandemic, racial violence, election integrity and the economy among other things.
The Commission on Presidential Debates had to introduce new measures to help prevent the spread of coronavirus such as limiting audience size in the room, adding distance between seats, incorporating personal health screening and other safety measures.
On September 2016, the first presidential debate for the 2016 US election between Donald Trump and former Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton set the record as the most-watched debate in American history, with 84 million viewers.
