Trump V.S. Biden: Presidential debate over economy, pandemic

CGTN published this video item, entitled “Trump V.S. Biden: Presidential debate over economy, pandemic” – below is their description.

For more: The closely contested U.S. presidential campaign gets fiercer this week when Donald Trump and Joe Biden go head to head in a presidential debate. With five weeks to go for the November 3 election, when most voters go to the polls, the stakes are high. On Sunday, Trump was revealed to have paid little or no income tax for years before and after he came to power. And with his history of skillful showmanship and brutal debate tactics, Trump is hoping the Cleveland showdown with Biden will put him back on top. But he needs to answer such Biden questions as on over 200,000 COVID-19 deaths in the U.S., the long-lasting economic fallout and widespread fatigue at the constant upheaval roiling his administration. With an ultra-polarized climate and few undecided voters, analysts say it’s unclear how much debates can actually move the needle. Listen to panelists make heads or tails of all the uncertainties.
