First Presidential Debate Tonight
President Trump will face the most direct challenge to his presidency by challenger Joe Biden tonight.
Trump and Biden meet tonight in Cleveland for their first of three debates. Fox News host Chris Wallace is the moderator. The candidates won’t shake hands.
Tonight’s debate topics will include, “The Trump and Biden Records,” “The Supreme Court,” “COVID-19,” “The Economy Race,” “Violence In Our Cities” and “The Integrity of the Election.” Each segment will last 15 minutes.
According to a New York Times report, Trump paid no income taxes in 10 of 15 years beginning in 2000. In both the years he won the presidency and in his first year in the White House Trump paid just $750 in federal income tax.
Trump denied the report and said this was fake news despite the newspaper having copies of the tax return.
No single issue will dominate tonight’s debate more than the coronavirus pandemic. We have now lost more than 200,000 lives in America to this virus.
In the Supreme Court nomination, Republicans have decided to press forward with nominated Amy Barrett to be the new Supreme Court judge. If she is confirmed, the conservatives would hold a 6-3 court majority for long time.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin are trying once more to get a stimulus deal finished before the election. Democrats have unveiled a new $2.2 trillion plan. This bill will be very important for the economy recovery.
All these issues are facing us today. We hope the three presidential debates will tell the people the truth and give answers to solving the problems.
For all of us what we want are the basic needs of health and a sufficient living standard. With this crisis, political slogans will not help us at all.
Election Day is around the corner. All of us can start early voting on October 13th. You need to register before October 3rd in order to qualify to vote. Let’s act on now. This is our right and responsibility that is directly related to the future of the nation.
