Election 2020 Today: Chaotic first debate, taunts fly

Posted

Here’s what’s , 34 days until Election Day:

HOW TO VOTE:

ON THE TRAIL: President Donald Trump visits Minnesota.

TODAY’S TOP STORIES:

CHAOTIC FIRST DEBATE: as Trump repeatedly interrupted his opponent with angry — and personal — jabs that sometimes overshadowed the sharply different visions each man has for a nation facing historic crises. The two men frequently talked over each other with Trump interrupting, nearly shouting, so often that Biden eventually snapped at him, “Will you shut up, man?”

‘STAND BACK AND STAND BY’: Trump didn’t condemn white supremacist groups and their role in violence in some American cities this summer, branding it solely a “left-wing” problem. Trump acknowledged one far-right extremist group, Proud Boys, by name.

MAIL VOTING: Trump continued his assault on the integrity of the U.S. elections, spreading falsehoods about the security of voting and misrepresenting issues with mail-in ballots. And while some irregularities and errors have occurred in the early vote, Trump mischaracterized those incidents.

CHRIS WALLACE: He lectured and cajoled Trump, urging him to follow the rules and not interrupt opponent Joe Biden. For much of the time, it was futile.

IOWA BATTLEGROUND: After Trump won Iowa by 9.4 percentage points in 2016, a competitive presidential race there suggests a tightening in other states he won by similar margins, such as Ohio, and potential peril in those he won by smaller margins.

BY THE NUMBERS: According to an AP Fact Check, The AP reported that more than 8,000 Chinese and foreign nationals based in the two locales entered the U.S. in the first three months after the travel restrictions were imposed. Additionally, more than 27,000 Americans returned from mainland China in the first month after the restrictions took effect.
