US President Donald trump praised the debate with democratic opponent Joe Biden that took place the day before. He said this during a speech to supporters in Minnesota, reports TASS.
The American leader admitted that he “enjoyed the debate with Sleepy Joe (as he calls Biden).” “The verdict is out, and they say that we, all of us, won a big victory last night,” he boasted.
According to the head of state, he did what the corrupt media refused to do. “I held Joe Biden accountable for his 47 years of lies, 47 years of betrayal, 47 years of failures,” he shared.
Trump added that the TV debate ratings were the highest in the history of cable television. At the same time, according to the Nielsen research service, 73 million people watched the events on TV. The audience decreased by almost 15 percent compared to 2016. During the previous presidential race, the first public debate between trump and Hillary Clinton, the democratic nominee, was watched by about 84 million people.
The first Biden – trump debate took place on September 29 at the Case Western Reserve University auditorium in Cleveland, Ohio. The second debate of candidates for the post of head of the American state will be held on October 15 in Miami, Florida, and the third — in Nashville, Tennessee. The US presidential election will be held on November 3.
