At Last Night's Debate, Trump Refused To Condemn White Supremacists & Lied About Mail-In Ballots

Sep 30, 2020


On this edition of Your Call, we’re getting your take on last night's chaotic presidential debate. Donald Trump interrupted Joe Biden nearly every time he spoke and changed the subject or dodged questions about actual issues, including COVID and the 206,000 people who've lost their lives.

Trump also refused to condemn white supremacists. Instead, he said, "Proud Boys stand back and standby." He ended the evening by spreading even more lies about the integrity of mail-in ballots. What did you make of the debate? Should there be another one given the chaos we saw last night?
