First Presidential Debate
The first presidential debate will be held tonight at 9 p.m. ET at Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, OH. Throughout the night, the DNC will forward talking points and press releases from the Biden campaign, and fact check Trump at @DNCWarRoom.
During the debate, Vice President Biden will speak directly to the American people about:
His plan to contain COVID-19
How he’ll build our country back better
His plan to give working families and small businesses a fair shot
Making the super-wealthy and corporations pay their fair share
Trump needs to answer for his lies and failures.
Trump lied about COVID-19 and how deadly it is
Trump doesn’t have a plan to contain the virus
200,000 Americans have died and 26 million are receiving unemployment assistance
While Trump repeats false attacks, Biden will focus on the issues keeping voters up at night:
Small businesses closing and reduced hours at work
Aging parents who are especially vulnerable to COVID-19
How to help their kids with remote school while working
That getting COVID-19 could give them a preexisting condition
Our expectation is that the moderator will ask the tough questions Americans are asking at their kitchen tables.
Americans are worried and scared for their future, tired of all the fighting, and looking for a leader to bring Americans together. Biden will show that he is that leader.
