8:13 pm
8:14 pm
8:15 pm
>>we're now 90 days away from the november, 3rd election and kron 4 is your local election headquarters this season, both presidential nominees were center stage tonight in a pair of competing town hall they were supposed to meet in their second debate, but those plans were scrapped after president trump tested positive for covid and in tonight's town hall with nbc news. savannah guthrie pressed trump to clearly condemn white supremacy. here's what the president had to say. >>now it's white from the sea for years, but you always do and you always start off with the kids it endeavors to joe
8:16 pm
biden whether or not he denounces i watched him in the same basic show with lester holt any was asking questions like biden was a child was i did a nice white supremacy. >>president was also asked to denounce the conspiracy theory q a non but he claimed to not know enough about the topic to denounce it. he also said he couldn't remember if he was tested for covid-19 on the day of his first debate with joe biden well the president is you. >>clear. >>there's a vaccines. they say have a very positive impact and they can affect posctively. 85% of the american public. there's other say this vaccine is really the key this is this is this is the golden key. it depends on the state of the nature of the vaccine when it comes out and how it's being distributed. >>while the president was on one town hall mister biden
8:17 pm
speaking as you see here was moderate it was a part of a town hall moderated by abc news, george stephanopoulos and he talked about the potential vaccine and whether or not he make it mandatory and you just heard his answer they're the candidates are scheduled to face off in their final debate one week from today, it's unclear whether that will still take place but biden says if it does he will demand that president trump test negative for covid-19 first so for reaction to these competing town halls tonight. we welcome in henry brady is the dean of the goldman school of public policy at u c berkeley professor thanks for being with us i know it's kind of hard to watch 2 debates on separate networks from what you were able to observe what's your take away from both of these. >>well biden was the policy wonks. >>with nation's self. >>at times coming back so growth reuse it saw that one time already. came back at time again he did that he said
8:18 pm
things have you heard of and it it was typical trump and biden was pretty difficult time. more low key. both of them equivocated some issues probably trump. the court vacated that more. >>i'd like your reaction to how he handled the question about white it it the moderator a while to nudge him to get to that clear cut denunciation and his reaction to the q a non question he was asked of course you in on is the online group that has these really wild conspiracy theories and he did not clearly denounce q and on what was your feeling about both those subjects. >>well he did you know it's white supremacy which of course he had not done in the first debate he equivocated on that on q a non he gave what can only be called a bizarre answer which is he said he didn't know anything about them, but he did know that they are against pedophilia and he acted as if that recommendation for them, and
8:19 pm
it seems from anybody's perspective that's a pretty limited recommendation for anybody just to know that they're against pedophilia. >>a snapshot in time here on the polls, the president is down as we speak now of course that could change. but he's the one who seems to have to make up some ground here and do something to get those numbers up was he able to accomplish at. >>well not in this forum. this it's the whole story sort of bizarre. he needed the second debate much more than joe biden needed it and so when he said he wouldn't do it because it was had to go virtual. that was very strange and then schedule something directly opposite apparently nbc news really did the biden today is not going to help donald trump because he needs to get to the people. not his core supporters, but he needs to get to people who are still undecided and it's not clear that they necessarily chose to watch donald trump. >>there was a feeling during some of the q and a joe biden
8:20 pm
that he was tiptoeing along some of the wondering what his far left supporters might have to say regarding things like whether he will stack the supreme court. what was your feeling about that. >>well and on fracking first of all it's just interesting to see how fracking is such an important issue it's really an issue that matters to people in pennsylvania, few other states it really doesn't matter in a lot of other places but it's the security of our electoral college that it becomes a major issue. in terms of his left wing it is true that he was equivocating respected the green new deal. the one hand saying that he didn't really completely embrace it on the other hand. not really are refuting either. >>well dean thank you so much for your observations and analysis tonight we probably talk to you again soon before all of this is over. thank you. thank you. democratic vice presidential nominee
