Candidates Donald Trump and Joe Biden sparred consistently throughout Tuesday’s first presidential debate, with liberally inclined moderator Chris Wallace consistently interrupting Trump and generally declining to treat Biden in a reciprocal matter.
The candidates discussed coronavirus, the economy, the Supreme Court and the vacancy slated to be filled by Amy Coney Barrett. Wallace sharply sought to end Trump’s answers, while giving wide leeway to the Democrat to respond to Trump’s allotted answers.
Biden refused to answer if he would pack the Supreme Court or support ending the filibuster in the United States Senate, leaving his views on an important governmental policy proposal unknown.

In a segment of criminality and riots, Joe Biden appeared to defend the criminal terrorist ANTIFA organization, claiming that ANTIFA was “an idea, not an organization.” Wallace quickly butted in, preventing any further discussion of the documented and organized terrorist group.

When pressed on his support of law enforcement, Joe Biden was unable to name one police union or organization that has endorsed his candidacy. Once again, Wallace jumped in to rescue Biden, quickly moving to change the topic of the conversation when Biden was left with a blank.

Wallace went on to describe critical race theory training- recently banned from use by federal contractors and government agencies by a Trump executive order- in an utterly dishonest fashion. Wallace described CRT as “racial sensitivity training.”
WALLACE: "Why did you decide to do that, to end racial sensitivity training?"
TRUMP: " They were teaching people that our country is a horrible place, it’s a racist place, and they were teaching people to hate our country and I’m not going to allow that to happen." pic.twitter.com/ERjG97P0OG

Post-debate polling on Telemundo(Spanish-language television) indicated that a strong majority of the network’s viewers believed that President Trump won the debate.

Immigration and national security were entirely ignored in the debate format, with considerable chunks of time being devoted to wild election day hypotheticals.
The contentious and rancorous contest may go down as a victory for Trump by default, with Biden generally declining to show the energy and aggression that the President showed and appearing reliant on interference from a friendly moderator to end any segment discussions that got out of hand. It’s somewhat possible that Biden will decline to appear in any further presidential debates before the November election.
Is America An “Idea?” Joe Biden Says Yes, Donald Trump Rejects Such a Notion
A stark contrast.
Joe Biden has endorsed the establishment liberal definition of America being little more than an “idea,” whereas President Trump has expressly rejected such a notion.
Joe Biden stated that America is an “idea” on a liberal podcast this week, going even further and claiming that the American idea had never been fully realized. The supposed true nature of the American character has never been broadly achieved, according to the former Vice President.

President Trump blasted Biden for likening America to a mere “idea” while speaking at a rally in Florida on Friday night.

Ideas are generally applicable in all times and places regardless of national and historical circumstance. According to Joe Biden’s understanding of America, anyone and everyone throughout the world could be considered equally “American” if they align with his ideological understanding of the idea. This disregards the historical American tradition, legacy and heritage, which far predates the novel notion of Americanism being little more than an “idea.”
The history of the notion America being an ‘idea’ dates back to the late 1990’s, when neoconservatives began to popularize the notion. It’s curious that the assertion is relatively new within American history, despite speaking as to the fundamental nature of America’s national character.
Try asking patriots who rebelled against Great Britain in the Revolutionary War, Union soldiers in the Civil War, and G.I’s storming Normandy in World War II if they were fighting for an “idea.” They’d have roundly rejected such an ahistorical notion- America was understood as a finite and corporeal nation to its citizens throughout its history, not a vague concept to be determined at the whims of liberal ideologues.
The contrast on “American idea” rhetoric couldn’t be more stark, and it appears that the November election will serve as a referendum between Biden’s hypothetical understanding of America and Trump’s America First vision of emphasizing American people, ways of life, and communities.
