It was a totally different scenario as the two presidential flagbearers, incumbent President Donald Trump of the Republican party and former Vice President Joseph Biden of the Democratic party both made their last efforts in a debate to persuade American voters on why they will be the best to lead the United States for the next four years.
President Trump obviously performed much better, with less interruptions than was the case during the first debate. He however failed to provide details of his alternative to the Affordable care act (a.k.a. Obama Care) should the Supreme court yield to his administration’s request to completely repeal the healthcare plan.
Biden equally did his best to stick to his points and pushed back on Trump’s accusation of his financially benefiting corruptly from both Russia and China while serving as Vice President. He was as well detailed with his plans to improve on the successes of the Obama care, but didn’t do well taking a punch on “why he didn’t do all he’s promising to do in 8 years of his Vice Presidency”.
Healthcare remains a major issue that will play a deciding role in the minds of most American voters in the upcoming elections.
On climate change, President Trump again repeated his unsubstantiated, non-science proven assertion that wind turbines kill birds, while solar energy is not as efficient to power industries. Joe Biden on the other hand reiterated his intention to rejoin the Paris accord on Climate Change if elected President, outlining his plan for clean energy to tackle global warming.
In the end, it was a night every American who listened in or watched would have a couple of take-aways on why they will be voting either candidate. It looked more like a debate and both candidates had clear opportunities to state their case with less interruptions. Meanwhile, Americans will have their say on November 3, 2020 and come January 20, 2021, the country will have a new President sworn in.
Who won the debate?
