Final US presidential debate: ‘A win for Trump’

23 October 2020

Thursday night’s debate was one of the last chances Republican President Donald Trump and his Democratic rival, former Vice President Joe Biden, had to appeal to a large nationwide audience. Both men seemed to be aware of how much was at stake.

Trump acted significantly more presidential than he had in recent memory, staying calm and using familiar arguments to attack Biden’s record when it was his, Trump’s, turn to speak — more on that in a bit. And Biden, who Trump and his supporters refer to as Sleepy Joe, was very much awake, passionately arguing against the incumbent’s policies in areas like immigration and the handling of the coronavirus crisis. …

The family separation policy, which the Trump administration stopped eventually, was criticized as unconscionable.

But the immigration segment of the debate took a turn after a strong start for Biden. Trump, avoiding the issue of the children still missing their parents, pointed out that some of the detention facilities, often described as cages, were in fact built during the Obama administration, when Biden was vice president. “That was him. They built cages,” said Trump.

For Coleman, he said, “It would have been better if Biden had had a response.” …

Trump won’

In the end, the president came out looking somewhat stronger than his challenger.

“Trump won, in the sense that [his debate performance] wasn’t a debacle, said Coleman, who is also the associate editor of Sabato’s Crystal Ball, a non-partisan election campaign newsletter. “We have set the bar so low. Now is it going to change a lot of minds? I don’t know.”

For a significant number of voters, the debate came too late to sway them, anyway: More than 42 million Americans have already cast their ballots, a record turn-out for early voting. https://www.dw.com/en/final-us-presidential-debate-a-win-for-trump/a-55367743

Notice also the following:

October 23, 2020

When Trump repeatedly asked Biden if he would “close down the oil industry,” the Democratic standardbearer said he “would transition from the oil industry, yes,” and that he would replace it by renewable energy “over time.” Trump, making a direct appeal to voters in energy producing states like Texas and the vital battleground of Pennsylvania, seized upon the remark as “a big statement.” https://apnews.com/article/joe-biden-donald-trump-virus-outbreak-climate-nashville-37f1e6cc23a9e610735015162eb8a03d

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, during Thursday’s debate with President Donald Trump, .. raised the issue that Trump lawyer Rudy Giuliani was being used as an “agent” of Russia to spread disinformation.

That, of course, was the opening for which the president was waiting, to ask Biden about the millions of dollars his family was getting from Russia, from China, and more. And what about the money that was being held for the “big guy,” identified as Joe Biden?

The issue has erupted into what some analysts have described as the biggest scandal ever in American politics, as emails and other documentation that have become available – from insiders, from an abandoned computer, and more – have described how the Biden family was making multiple deals with foreign interests that would benefit the family with millions of dollars.

“I think you owe an explanation to the American people,” the president charged. “Maybe you can do it now.”

Biden then claimed, “I have not taken a penny from any foreign source in my life. I have not taken a single penny from any country whatsoever ever.”

Trump described the Biden family as a “vacuum cleaner,” sucking up money from everyone.

Biden also denied there was anything wrong with his son, Hunter, getting paid tens of thousands of dollars a month from Burisma, a Ukrainian gas company, an industry in which Hunter had no experience.

That deal was made while Joe Biden was vice president for Barack Obama’s administration and responsible for Ukraine policy.10/22/20 https://www.wnd.com/2020/10/bidens-debate-stumble-raises-issue-corruption-allegations/

Anyway, caught parts of the debate last night, as well as listened to analysts at CNN, Fox, and MSNBC. The analysts essentially said that Joe Biden hurt himself in the states of Pennsylvania and Texas (two states Donald Trump probably must win if he is to win the election), Donald Trump scored points on the Hunter Biden scandal, and that although Donald Trump did better at the debate than Joe Biden, he probably would not win the election.

We will see.

On a somewhat related tangent, notice the following:

Harris’ husband, attorney Douglas Emhoff, told a group of liberals tightly packed together not wearing masks or following COVID-19 social distancing protocol that he is “married to the next President of the United States” in a clip that is quickly going viral. 10/21/20 https://bigleaguepolitics.com/freudian-slip-husband-of-kamala-harris-proclaims-he-is-married-to-the-next-president-of-the-united-states/

If the Biden-Harris ticket wins, that looks to be the case. While Donald Trump spent the five days prior to last night’s debate campaigning and being US President, Joe Biden spent most of his time prepping for the debate. Despite the prepping, he did not do as well according to most analysts. And if he wins, it looks like he will be more of a figurehead president than the actual one. Which points to Kamala Harris being the de facto President of the United States, consistent with her husband’s statement.

How many voters will be motivated by the debate is questionable.

The lessor of two evils is still evil.

Pray, as Jesus said, for God’s Kingdom to come (Matthew 6:10).

Related to Donald Trump and Joe Biden, the Continuing Church of God (CCOG) put together the following video on our Bible News Prophecy YouTube channel:


The USA presidential campaign is in full swing. Though Democratic party candidate Joe Biden and Republican party candidate Donald Trump have differing economic and climate policies as well as different views on abortion and racial matters, there are many similarities both share. Do they have policies that they share that are leading to the destruction of the USA? What do Bible prophecies reveal about sexual immorality, debt, and hypocrisy? What are some of the national sins of the USA? Does the Bible endorse voting? What did Jesus teach related to what to seek and pray for? What does the New Testament teach that Christians are to do related to leaders? Is the lesser of two evils still evil? Dr. Thiel goes over these matters, including going over eleven similarities the two major party candidates share and some of what the Bible teaches about evil.

Here is a link to our sermonette video: Biden, Trump, and the Bible.

After the election, no matter who wins, expect to see various forms of chaos in the USA.
