On Wednesday morning, September 30, US President Donald Trump faced Democratic challenger Joe Biden in the first election debates.
The debate took place in Ohio and was moderated by Fox News anchor, Chris Wallace.
During the feisty debates which saw attacks thrown between the two candidates, Trump claimed he paid millions in federal income taxes after a New York Times report alleged he paid just $750 as income tax in 2016 and 2017.
Trump also refused to condemn White Supremacists telling them to ‘stand down and stand by’ while Biden told him to ‘shut up’ when he was constantly interrupted by the president.
Trump also brought up drug addiction allegations against Biden’s son, Hunter, while Biden said he will accept the outcome of the election no matter the results.
Social media users of course reacted to the cagey animal-like debate which saw both candidates come for each other with Trump mostly ignoring time warnings set by host Chris Wallace.
