In Competing Town Halls, Trump and Biden Propose Completely Different Visions

Donald Trump endured a detailed grilling from NBC’s Savannah Guthrie, a former litigator, in a tense, antagonistic town hall. Guthrie questioned again when a defensive Trump dodged questions, offering live fact-checks as the president replied to questions from her and voters.
A right-wing, racist and antisemitic conspiracy theory movement, the president refused to disavow QAnon.
When asked to disown QAnon, whose supporters believe Trump is secretly fighting a Democratic cabal engaged in pedophilia, this is not the first time Trump has demurred. QAnon is considered by the FBI as a domestic terrorism threat.
More or less, Trump agreed with the estimate that he owes creditors more than $400 million. Trump was questioned in a heated conversation with Guthrie about stories from the New York Times that revealed he owed money to foreign organizations.
If you look at such huge assets as I have … The $400 million sum of capital is a peanut, it’s highly under-leveraged. “He added:” Not a big deal.
The town hall of Joe Biden was much less eventful, providing a startling contrast to Trump.
During his ABC News town hall, which was moderated by George Stephanopoulos, the Democratic presidential candidate gave detailed answers on his plans on everything from the coronavirus pandemic to tax reform.
Before election day, Biden vowed to deliver a clearer position on court-packing. He said his position on packing up the supreme court will largely rely on whether, as they currently expect to do, Senate Republicans confirmed Amy Coney Barrett days before the election.
Biden said, “I’m open to considering what happens from that point on” if Barrett is verified.
Biden said supporting the 1994 crime bill that he helped to write was a mistake.
There were some positive benefits to the law, such as the federal assault weapons ban, the Democrat claimed, but he admitted that it had several negative effects.
