President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden faced off in the first presidential debate last night. The 90-minute debate (hosted by Fox News’ Chris Wallace) focused on a range of topics including Supreme Court justice selection, the coronavirus, healthcare, the economy, racial tensions, climate change, and election integrity. The debate was widely characterized as highly contentious and chaotic, with discussion marked by frequent interruptions and the candidates often straying from the moderator’s questions. Here’s a recap and a video of the full debate.
