10:03 am
china and whether biden put policies in place as vice president that helped to sun profit i have not taken a penny from any foreign shores ever in my life we learned this president paid 50 times the tax in china as a secret bank account with china biden lash back accusing trump of cozy relationships with russian president vladimir putin and north korean leader kim jong il and it's a relationship trump defended claiming it's prevented conflict and tensions he inherited from the obama white house it was a very dangerous period in my 1st 3 months before we sort of work things out a little bit ok there was a very good they left us a mess what has he done he's legitimize north korea he's talked about his good buddy who's a folk that really gone and we had a good relationship with. hitler before he in fact invaded and domestic policy trump tried repeatedly to portray biden's policies as extreme and too little too
10:04 am
late considering his years of government he alleged a biden presidency would bring the united states closer to socialism when it comes to health care president tells me he was nearly on tour 47 years he didn't do as america continues to grapple with the issue of racial injustice trumpeted bided for his role in passing a 994 crime bill that locked up a disproportionate number of african-americans for possessing a small amount of drugs he never did a thing except in 1094 when he did shut harm to the black community and they were called and he called them super predators all $100.00 senators voted for a bill on drugs and how to deal with drugs it was a mistake on climate change trumped defended his decision to withdraw the united states from the paris climate accord stating he believed it was too costly for small business but when biden suggested the u.s. should move away from an economy based on oil trump had this response oh i was
10:05 am
ready to ship because you know exactly what i'm saying is you is going to destroy you will industry the final presidential debate was supposed to be about policy and that is exactly what american voters got with 47000000 ballots already cast there's little time for either candidate to win new voters can really help al jazeera nashville tennessee. well barbara perry is the director of presidential studies at the university of virginia's miller center she says byes and fully capitalize on some of trump's comments. things have obviously not been going well in employment for african-americans in this country certainly since the code epidemic hit so that's one issue and for the president to tell these tall tales that he's the least raises person in that room of 200 or so people and then he's the greatest president for half an american since abraham lincoln i do wonder why rice president biden
10:06 am
didn't say could we talk a little bit about a fellow democrat lyndon johnson and the civil rights act of $64.00 on the voting rights act of $65.00 i do wish he would bring those things up but it was also one of those unfortunate misspeaks for vice president biden he mentioned the poor boys that's a sandwich in the united states instead of the crowd noise but i think most people and really want communities of color know that there is systemic racism in the united states and they they won't be persuaded most of them by the president's words tonight but assoon as someone says the s word and by that we need socialism so it's a little bit like in the 1950 s. and this country calling someone a communist or their policies communistic i guess that does scare americans except for the fact that that is what republicans and conservatives called social security in the 1930 s. when it passed under franklin roosevelt and that is what republicans and conservatives call what came to be known as medicare when it passed in 1965 also under lyndon johnson and so i do again wish sometimes that joe biden and democrats
10:07 am
would look back a little bit at history and say who would give up their social security benefits now who would give up their medicare now remember republicans and conservatives call that socialism and the other thing about the president saying oh yes we're going to have a he uses that strange term beautiful beautiful health care plan he has been saying that for 4 years and there has not been repeal and replacement by his plan of obamacare and with his supreme court nomination of a macone bear and it's very clear that within a few months it's possible that all of obamacare will be overturned by the supreme court. and the u.s. has imposed sanctions on 5 iranian groups it accuses of attempting to interfere in the election or wednesday u.s. intelligence agencies said iran and russia had obtained votes or information to spread chaos and confusion the sanctions applies to iran's revolutionary guards and t.v.
