Did you miss last night’s debate between Vice President Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris?
Just like the debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden, supporters of both say their candidate won. Unlike the presidential debate, this one featured calmer candidates who didn’t interrupt each other too much and a moderator who didn’t act like a tag-team partner of the Democratic candidate.
The two politicians discussed big issues like the U.S. Supreme Court, anti-police riots, and COVID-19.
Harris said President Trump forfeited the right to re-election because of how he handled the pandemic. The Vice President defended the President and said the public is responsible for following social-distancing guidelines. He reminded viewers that Biden opposed President Trump’s decision to suspend travel to China early in the pandemic. Leftists called President Trump xenophobic for wanting to shut down the borders. Now they’re blaming him for COVID-19 deaths because he didn’t shut down the borders earlier.
Like Biden, Harris refused to say whether she’d pack the U.S. Supreme Court.
Another hot-button issue was the anti-police riots and race relations. Harris falsely claimed that President Trump refused to condemn “white supremacists” during his debate with Biden. Vice President Pence said that the president has repeatedly done so. Harris claimed that justice wasn’t served in the Breonna Taylor case, while Vice President Pence said he was sympathetic to Taylor’s family but trusts the workings of the grand jury’s decision process.
