Trump should just do what Biden has been suggesting all along: masks, regulations on businesses and rapid testing. Oh, wait—Trump has already done that. People may be confused by the fact that a cornerstone of the United States—States’ autonomy—was respected by Trump when he let the governors decide on emergency measures in their respective states. Instead, Trump did what the federal government should do: shut down the national border, allocate funds and resources where necessary. And even die-hard Trump haters like Andrew Cuomo and Gavin Newsome testified that Trump did indeed respond with resources appropriately. So Trump distributed federal resources and shut down the national border to China and to those connected with recent travel to China while respecting states’ autonomy. Joe Biden is acting dictatorial when he says he’d implement a national mask mandate. He’s not respecting states’ autonomy and most likely would hold federal resources ransom for his own political gain. Nancy can attest to that. Biden is a trojan horse for radical leftist policies.

I'd rather have an old President who takes naps but trusts his experts and has actual plans
The problem is, a) Biden is geriatric; b) not only will he swallow any pill dr. Fauci gives him, but Biden will give all his power over to technocrats. And what plans does Biden have? All I’ve heard so far is a repeal of the Trump tax cuts, masks, shutdowns, and rapid testing, ban fracking and fossil fuels, and 500,000 new green jobs—although he doesn’t say what jobs and how to get them. But most likely jobs for highly-gifted engineers and software developers and AI wizards. So Joe’s not really looking out for the little guy. He lies when he says he is. So what plans? Because he’s already verified his coronavirus plan is the Trump plan already in place.

Biden also stepped up his criticism of Trump's handling of a coronavirus pandemic that has killed roughly 225,000 Americans, saying, "The bottom line is, Donald Trump is the worst possible president, the worst possible person to lead us through this pandemic."
The bottom line is Biden is a relic of the old white establishment and nothing more than a cliche who’s mastered the art riding the bench for almost half a century. Besides, Biden said at the last debate he would do exactly as Trump is already doing to fight coronavirus.
Biden has nothing new to add to the fight against coronavirus except for closed businesses, high taxes and high unemployment. He literally speaks politician. For example, a psychic reader will always say: “I see you’re having money troubles.” And the fool goes, “wow, you really are a psychic”, not realizing virtually everyone has some form of money issues. So Biden says platitudes like: “I’m speaking to the little guy, the middle class family having a hard time putting food on the table, blah blah blah”. When the question was about his policy towards China. And why Joe will say to a crowd of black folks: “they gonna put y’all back in chains”, instead of taking to them about school vouchers. And the evidence goes on and on.
Trump is different. He speaks with conviction and not from a script written in the 80’s. Trump said he didn’t need to run for president, but as an American he saw the damage done to the country by 8 years of Obama and Biden. Trump was pissed at them, China, NAFTA, NATO, corrupt career democrats, illegal immigration, etc. For Trump it’s personal; for Biden, the money’s too easy and too good to stop now. Even after stuffing his pockets full for half a century.

How far gone to you have to be to not only write this stuff, but then to actually believe it too. The country’s race relations have been set back to the early 20th century thanks to BLM.

As anybody can see on tv, the people at Trump rallies are all wearing masks and are “packed in” outdoors. Trump’s rallies pose no more power of threat than athletes still playing face-to-face and tackling each other , passengers on airplanes and subways , at protests, riots, and demonstrations; people of the ruling class going to the salon and gym and carrying on as normal, etc, etc. It seems everything is ok as long as it’s not a Trump rally—at least according to the media.
Besides, Biden is in no position to criticize. After his last debate, where he stated clearly that his plan is the Trump plan that is already in place, Biden has forfeited all credit on the subject.

I’m wondering about the fact that Biden has explicitly said he will repeal the Trump tax cuts and raise taxes. Also, all of the social programs will cost huge sums of tax money; but then Biden basically admitted he’ll shut down businesses again as part of his coronavirus counterattack . How will people pay the increase in taxes if everything is shut down?

Trump: You gotta sometimes talk’em into it Joe.

Biden’s coronavirus plan in his own words: masks, national standards on businesses and rapid testing. —Trump has already done these two hinge. Masks in public places, six feet apart in businesses, and restaurants and bars and churches at half capacity. Biden’s got nothing new. He will shut down and destroy the economy while implementing nothing new. He has no plan except for Trump’s plan. Once again Biden is committing plagiarism.

Biden needn’t really say anything at this point.
That’s the problem and why I probably won’t vote for Biden: he hasn’t said anything at all up to this point.

I hope Trump will mention 50 Cent and that 50’s officially supporting Trump (who knew 50 Cent was a redneck white supremacist—I know right). And then Trump should call Biden a wangster.

221k+ dead Americans in 10 months. 11 million unemployed. An economy that is about to double-dip into recession.
No, those are not the issues no matter how much Trump haters try to claim it is. The issues are illegal immigration, products not being made in the USA, smaller government vs. bigger government; lower taxes, the green new deal, socialism vs. free market capitalism; 1st and 2nd amendments; unfair trade deals; protecting the border; crime and the dems failures in every city they run. As a voter, I realize Trump could have done better with the virus, but to assume that everything in discussion before March is now obsolete is crazy. Dems seems to only care about coronavirus. Hell, Nancy has weaponized it and is trying to make a policy issue. Dems think, with good reason, that their constituents are stupid enough to run around like the sky is falling over coronavirus and forget about their sinister plans beforehand. Joe talks about absolutely nothing except higher taxes and mask mandates because that’s all he’s got. And that’s not enough for me.

Of course it's not true. I borrowed it from Peter Cook and Rowan Atkinson actually, but it's no less ridiculous than some of the nauseating stuff that Trump supporters do come out with.
Sounds to me like the unhinged stuff certain people continue to say about Trump and his supporters with zero substance to back it up. So it’s just fluff then. Great!

Did someone actually say this, or are you making this up? Show me the source. If it’s true, then that’s messed up.
Anyway, it would be nice if we could hear clear policy views from both candidates. No personal insults from anybody. And last of all, let’s hope the moderator will be less of a figurehead this time.

Come on man. How often have you made sweeping generalizations about groups of people?
unfortunately, Posters’ generalizations don’t usually cost them an election like it did the dems and liberals who put Trump supporters into categories called deplorables and rednecks and uneducated racist morons. The dems need to accept that that’s not the case. Half the country does not fall into those categories. Rather than look at Trump supporters as people with legitimate issues and concerns, dems mock and alienate them. Instead rehashing the same stuff, Obama should use this time to try and reach out to Trump supporters in a respectful manner.

Trump - failed economy, a diseased populace, full of civil unrest.
But we all know this isn’t Trump’s fault. Also, this election is not about the coronavirus. That’s a convenient distraction. Politics were already raging before the virus.

Unlike Trump, Biden has laid out his plans in full detail: https://joebiden.com/joes-vision/
I’m sure Biden’s 47 year record is a much more reliable expositor of Joe’s grand and vision for America. When I think of voting for Biden I can’t help but remember the psychologist’s rule of thumb: past behavior is the best indicator of future behavior.

Biden is leading by example.
Since the last debate most Trump apologists have given up on that line - do keep up.

That’s cool. I just wish Biden would do a little more campaigning himself and start answering questions. Who knows, I might would vote for him if he stopped dodging questions and reporters and explained his “plan” in more detail. It seems everyone else except Joe Biden is doing the legwork.

Amazing that even 10% of people in the US like and/or support Trump
It’s a bit more than that. I think most of the Trump hate comes from non-Americans who won’t have a say this November. I think the America first policy rubs them the wrong way. At home, Trump is packing the crowds in at the rallies despite COVID-19. No one shows up for Joe. Every state Trump goes to he packs them in. No one goes to see Joe even though he’s offering higher taxes and everything free for illegal immigrants. The proof is in the article. This reporter and the NYT have become totally unhinged since Trump was never supposed to win office but did anyway. Another desperate article aimed to persuade people like me to vote for Joe Hiden. It’s riddled with current commander in chief insanity disorder. I’ll vote for the orange one this November which is really a vote for red, white and blue.

Finally a positive article about Trump, describing him as vigorous and even athletic as the author used words like frenetic and hectic. That’s who I want as president. Not someone dull and sleepy and always in the basement.

I was neutral on this point. Because I’m not Japanese or Korean. But my family is Japanese, and the way this article is saying how South Koreans are boycotting Japan and how 61% of them view Japan negatively—now my favorability of S. Koreans has dropped a few percentage points.

This is not terrorism in the usual sense the word is bandied about. This is straight up racism, religious and cultural bigotry acted out by a practitioner of the religion of peace. In France for god sake. The epicenter of the enlightenment where criticism and mockery of authority figures was fought and died for. Only a bigot who thinks their religion is above others and the law of the land assumes they have a right to execute summarily those he or she or they deem as transgressors against their god.
