WASHINGTON (AP/77WABC) — President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden squared off, in a way, Thursday night, their scuttled second debate replaced by dueling televised town halls. Their events showcased striking differences in temperament, views on racial justice and approaches to the pandemic that has reshaped the nation.
Trump was defensive about his administration’s handling of the coronavirus, and evasive when pressed about whether he took a required COVID-19 test before his first debate with Biden.
Trump said he didn’t know anything about the QAnon conspiracy group in an oftentimes hostile exchange with moderator, Savannah Guthrie. Biden, for his part, gave answers that were long and sometimes vague.
