With the American election around the corner, the first debate took place between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden and was moderated by Chris Wallace of Fox News. Many called the debate a complete mess as the candidates failed to get their point across and both of them were shouting over each other.

While there was a lot of shouting and back and forth arguing, the candidates both stated important information about how they plan on running America if they were to be elected President. What follows is what came out of the debate.

COVID-19 was the main talking point

With the coronavirus pandemic ravaging the world, it was a huge focus during the debate between the two candidates.

Biden took the opportunity to attack Trump for his failure to control the spread of the virus within the United States as over 200 000 Americans have died from it. Trump promptly responded that if Biden were President, the death rate would be in the millions, and he wouldn't have made enough masks and ventilators.

Biden mentioned how he believes that Trump truly understands how serious of a virus this is but downplays it to the media attempting to create less panic. Trump commented on how Biden called him a "racist" and a "xenophobe" for closing borders despite it being the right thing to do. While Trump could have closed the borders a little earlier, it was a necessary move.

Trump talks about the Supreme Court

Due to the passing of Ruth Bader Ginsburg, there is an open spot to be filled on the Supreme Court. There has been an ongoing debate between the candidates, and their parties, in regards to whether the seat should be filled or not in an election year. According to Ruth Bader Ginsburg's granddaughter, her final wish was that her seat not be filled until the election comes to an end.

Ultimately, though, that's not up to her. As the candidates debated about when it should be filled, the President made a good point, saying that he was elected to serve a four-year term and not a three year one. Thus, he should be able to fill the seat on the Supreme Court since one came open during his term.
