Who won the debate?
From student A.A. regarding this article: https://thepoliticalinsider.com/trump-declares-himself-to-be-winner-of-debate/
While reading this article my first thought was how did he win this debate? This whole debate was a joke due to the fact that Trump interrupted Biden more than at least 10 times, and literally they spent most of their time arguing as if they were two teenagers fighting for which football team is the best. The questions Trump was asked and the two minutes he was given, he used that time to bash on Biden and the questions were only half answered. For example, Trump refused to condemn white supremacy on live tv. That was a major red flag for me because being Hispanic I notice how much white privilege there is around me. I can guarantee you that those white privileged people have never struggled as much as a hard-working Hispanic that just wants a better future. Trump also claimed that he has helped out African American’s the most than any other president has, which is a complete like because he has done the complete opposite. Based on what I’ve seen, the countless articles I had read, and the research I have done Trump is the president that has been the least person to help any other race other than white. He has been the person that has bought out so much hatred between people, and you notice how people have shown their true colors since he’s been in office. Save our children, BLM, and HLM are all something really important to me.

First off, both President Trump and former V.P Biden ended up interrupting the mediator pretty frequently, with President Trump being the dominant one in that aspect, cutting both Chris Wallace and Joe Biden. From just this perspective alone, I feel that both of them are being very disrespectful. On top of that, Donald Trump used to call Joe Biden “Sleepy Joe” which seemed far from the truth, because Joe Biden during his debate had great energy and seemed very up and passionate about what he was talking about. Overtop all of that, I see that during the end, Chris Wallace asked why Trump would not really abide by the rules of the debate, to which both of the campaigns agreed that Trump was not following the rules. When looking at this, I cannot say I could pick a definite winner of the debate, as I would not want to be biased towards my party’s views, and the way the debate turned out made it seem like he Chris had a really hard time keeping the reigns over Trump so he would not go astray and be interrupting, but I have to commend Chris for trying to keep the debate together while it was falling apart.
