Joe Biden deflected the questions on Foreign policy, Packing the court, the Senate filibuster, Manifesto Mandate, Green New Deal, Hunter Biden's involvement with Russia, Ukraine, and China by deflecting to his son who did serve in the military, and died from cancer. President Trump was not treated equally by a very Biased Moderator Chris Wallace who instead of doing his job and being fair and impartial moderator was always stopping the President from interrupting, but only once did I hear him say to Joe Biden to quit interrupting. He was definitely catering to a weaker candidate in Joe Biden. Joe Biden stammered and stuttered trying recall many facts which was to be expected. The President was his combative self as he has been for almost four years now as was to be expected because he has been under constant attack by congress and the Media. I found President Trump to be Trump and former Vice President Biden to be Biden, I don't think they changed anyone's minds from this debate. I do feel that president Trump held to his conservatives values and that Joe Biden may have burned some bridges in the radial left wing of the democratic party. President Trump did not in any way burn any bridges with radical right wing of the Republican party. We really need a strong fair and impartial Moderator to take control the next debate.

The American people lost this debate as it was nothing more than a 6 round fight night.

Best line of the night: I have done more in 47 months than you have Mr. Biden in 47 years.

Second best line of the night: What Law enforcement agencies have you had pledge their support , just name one, Biden could not name one.

Third best line of the night: They came after me trying to do a coup,” Trump said. “ Now we’ve caught ’em all.” “President Obama, he knew about it too and so did you Joe,” Trump added, “So don’t tell me about a free transition of power.”

Forth best line of the night: Mr. Vice President, have you even once called or contacted any of the Governors or Mayors who have been dealing with some as many 3 months of sustained violence ? Mr. Biden I am not the an elected official yet. Bu that is not true you have said tonight that it is your democratic party and you represent your party so again I ask have you tried to contact any of the governors or mayors that are dealing with the ongoing violence. Biden's answer was to change the topic.

And Last:  Oh I see I not only have to debate Joe but I also have to debate you too Chris I thought you were the Moderator.

BTW Chris Wallace you need to do your own Fact Checking for once, Joe Biden as you eloquently called him all night long Mr. Vice President instead Former Vice President is incredibly disrespectful to Mike Pence the current Vice President.

Just a few questions I might have asked Former Vice President Joe Biden:

Wake up! No name calling, no hate. Facts
Questions for Biden at debate, that will never be asked.
1. Why did members of your family keep getting lucrative business opportunities overseas while you were vice president?
2. How did your brother, Frank, secure $45,000,000 in taxpayer loans from the Obama administration for his Caribbean projects?
3. How did a newly-minted firm employing your other brother, James, receive a $1.5 billion contract to build homes in Iraq despite having no experience in construction or international development?
4. Why did your son Hunter accompany you on your official trip to Beijing in December 2013? What did he do on that trip? Who did he meet with? What should the American public make of the fact that just 10 days after this trip, your son’s boutique private equity firm secured a $1 billion investment deal from the state-owned bank of China (later expanded to $1.5 billion) despite having no prior experience in China, and with this deal, the Chinese government granted your son’s firm a first-of-its-kind arrangement to operate in the the recently formed Shanghai Free-Trade Zone—a perk not granted to any of the large established financial institutions?
5. Should the American public be concerned that your son’s private equity firm partnered with a Chinese government-owned aerospace and defense conglomerate to facilitate the purchase of an American company that produced strategically sensitive dual-use military technology that the Chinese government wanted?
6. Does your “Build Back Better” proposal contain any provisions to ensure that American taxpayer-funded technology is not bought off by Chinese state-backed enterprises working with private equity firms like your son’s?
7. Back in 2000, you voted in favor of giving permanent Normal Trade Relations (NTR) to China. At the time, you said that this would not lead to “the collapse of the American manufacturing economy” because China is “about the size of the Netherlands” and could not possibly become “our major economic competitor.” Furthermore, you predicted that free trade with China would establish “a path toward ever greater political and economic freedom” for the people of China. Do you still stand by these statements today after 3.4 million American jobs have been lost to China and millions of China’s citizens have been imprisoned, surveilled, disappeared, and used as slave labor by an increasingly authoritarian regime enriched by 20 years of record trade imbalances from flagrant trade violations?
8. The People’s Republic of China has a bold plan called “Made in China 2025” to dominate the key technologies of the future in order to overtake the United States militarily and economically. Do you still contend that China is “not competition for us”?
9. Why did you promote the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) to financial special interest groups when research was clear that the deal would make it easier for corporations to move U.S. jobs overseas?
10. Do you believe Xi Jinping kept his promise to Barack Obama to end cyber-espionage against the United States? If not, what are you prepared to do about it?
11. Do you accept that the coronavirus originated in China? Do you think China was honest with the world in its handling of the coronavirus? Are you satisfied with China’s explanations for how it spread? Do you believe their claims about the number of cases and fatalities in China?
12. Do you think China should be held responsible in any way for its handling of the coronavirus? If not, why not? What, if any, repercussions should there be for China in its handling of the coronavirus?
13. Did you suggest investigating Michael Flynn under the Logan Act, as Peter Strzok’s notes suggest?
14. You said in your DNC acceptance speech that America is ready to “do the hard work of rooting out our systemic racism.” What did you do in your 36 years as a U.S. senator and 8 years as vice president to root out systemic racism? Why didn’t it work?
15. You have called for “revolutionary institutional changes.” What does that mean in practice?
16. You have vowed to rescind the Trump tax cuts. Can you think of a single example of a country that recovered from a recession by raising taxes?

According to the BBC

Trump spoke - surprisingly perhaps - less than Biden, with around 38 minutes, compared to 43 minutes taken up by the former vice-president. Extra time was added due to interruptions.

When it comes to interruptions, however, the president cut in some 73 times. (In 2016, the fact that Trump interrupted then-rival Hillary Clinton 37 times at one debate raised eyebrows - but that was then, this is now.)

Trump also got the lion's share of follow-ups from Wallace, with 15 compared to Biden's four, and had 14 rebuttals to Biden's nine.

Wallace also pointed out to the President that he had agreed, indeed they both had, that there would be no interruptions when the other person was speaking

I don't think anyone scored any Brownie Points tonight.  They both interrupted one another and Trump even got into it with Chris Wallace the Moderator. Biden sure struck a nerve in Trump when he said he was not too smart.  

What they need are Lecterns where the an individual controls the mics, turns one mic on and the other off. Each Candidate has their time allotted to speak and they should be able to speak without being interrupted.
