  • The Univision journalist did not hide his annoyance

Jorge Ramos condemns Trump in the 2020 Debate. After the president, Donald Trump, rejected on Tuesday to condemn the white supremacists and argued that he has seen more violence by people on the left than on the right, during the first debate election against Democratic hopeful Joe Biden, which took place in Cleveland (Ohio), Jorge Ramos exploded against him.

“The arrogance of power. The United States is still in shock from last night’s debate. The Trump we saw is almost the same as the one we met in 2015… but with much more power. Today he believes that he should not follow any rules ”.

Jorge Ramos added that: “his refusal to condemn white supremacists is the note in the world,” he wrote in his Twitter.

And he continued saying: “The BBC and many media emphasize that Trump refused to condemn the white supremacist groups and, on the contrary, told them to ‘be ready’ (stand by).”

In addition, the Univision host said: “The chaos and disorder of the debate is a very clear reflection of the painful and divisive moment the United States is experiencing.”

Jorge Ramos commented: “This is the moment when Trump refuses to say that he is not going to declare himself the winner of the election until the winner is independently certified. We have already heard this same story a lot in Latin America ”.

Asked by debate moderator Chris Wallace on whether he would condemn white supremacists and ask them not to intervene in racial protests, Trump responded:

“Sure, I’m willing (to ask you to step back), but I would say that almost everything I see is from the left wing, not the right wing. I am willing to do anything. I want to see peace, ”he said.

Meanwhile, Biden urged him to condemn white supremacists. “Say it, do it, say it,” he repeated.

To which the president replied, addressing the moderator: “Who would you like me to condemn?” “Proud Boys (a group of the extreme right) take a step back and stay prepared, but I tell you something, I will tell you that someone has to do something with Antifa (anarchist movement) and the left because this is not a problem of the right wing”, opined.

Given these statements, Biden said that “Antifa is an idea not an organization.”

The “Proud Boys”, famous for their misogynistic and anti-Islam rhetoric, is considered a hate group by the civil rights organization Southern Poverty Law Center.

They describe themselves as an association that fights for freedom of expression and that supports Trump in his attempts to “restore law and order,” in the face of the racial marches of the Black Lives Matter movement.

On the other hand, Trump has accused the anarchist movement Antifa of being behind the demonstrations against racism that have shaken the main cities of the country in recent months and has announced that he will designate it as a terrorist group.

Trump tries to disorient Biden in chaotic and sour first debate
President Donald Trump on Tuesday tried to disorient his rival in the November elections, Democrat Joe Biden, with constant interruptions in a chaotic and sour debate, which reinforced the uncertainty about what will happen the day after the elections.

Trump and Biden met for the first time in Cleveland, in the key state of Ohio, where they argued for more than 90 minutes in a row on some of the issues that concern voters most, but all attempts to delve into those issues ended frustrated by interruptions or personal attacks.

“It is difficult to be able to pronounce a single word with this clown,” Biden said at one point in the debate, although he later corrected himself: “Excuse me, this person.”

MANY ATTACKS, LITTLE SUBSTANCE

Indeed, Trump did not stop interrupting his opponent throughout the exchange, to the point that the moderator, journalist Chris Wallace, had to remind the president at least twice that his campaign had promised to respect the time allotted. to each candidate to answer the questions.

Biden mocked Trump for “babbling” while he spoke and at one point blurted out a “can you shut up, man?”; but he managed to complete several of the arguments he had prepared and tried to address the American voters directly by staring at the camera.

“Under this president, we have become weaker, poorer, sicker, more vulnerable and more divided,” said the former US Vice President (2009-2017).

Trump branded Biden at the beginning of the debate as “socialist” and “controlled” by the left of his party, and did not take long to take the debate to the personal level, repeating his accusation – not proven – that the son of his rival, Hunter, engaged in “corruption” by working for a gas company in Ukraine while his father was vice president.

And Biden directed even more insults than he received, calling the president a “liar,” “racist,” and “having no idea what he’s talking about,” as well as blurting out: “Get out of your bunker (at the White House ) and your sand trap on the golf course, and do what needs to be done to save lives (from the pandemic) ”.

ELECTORAL UNCERTAINTY

The US president was more dedicated to reacting to what Biden was saying than trying to send clear messages to voters, emphasizing his favorite campaign slogans: his defense of all things law and order, and his insistence that the November elections will be “rigged.”

“It is a fraud, and it is a shame,” Trump stressed, insisting on his argument that voting by mail favors electoral fraud, something that multiple studies have shown is not true.

Trump said that due to the delays derived from the COVID-19 pandemic and the increase in voting by mail, the result of the elections could take “months” to be known, but he refused to answer the question with a yes. whether he promised to appease his followers in the event that the winner is not known on November 3.

“What I urge my followers is to go to the polling places and observe everything very carefully, because that is what they have to do,” the president concluded.

Meanwhile, Biden answered directly yes to the question of whether he would call for calm until the winner of the elections is known, and said that his rival “is simply afraid to count the votes.”

Trump thus influenced his recurring suggestion that he could not accept the result of the elections if he is not declared the winner, and repeated his expectation that the issue would end in the Supreme Court, whose Republican majority could be reinforced if the Senate approves before the elections to a new judge nominated by him.

TRUMP AND RACISM

The president also declined to answer directly the question of whether he was willing to condemn the actions of white supremacists and their militias in the country, stating:

“Almost everything I see (of riots) comes from the left.” The Democratic candidate denounced that Trump “constantly pours gasoline on the fire” and that if he avoids clearly reprimanding those groups it is because it is convenient for him “to generate a racist hatred, a racial division” in the country.

What Trump did clarify is that he does believe that human activity contributes “to some extent” to climate change; while his rival promised that if he wins, he will return the US to the Paris Climate Agreement and threaten Brazil with “significant economic consequences” if it does not stop “mutilating the Amazon rainforest.”

“THE WORST DEBATE EVER”

The turbulent night in Cleveland left a bad taste in the mouths of many voters and commentators, who lamented the little substantive debate on the issues that matter to Americans. “This will be considered the worst presidential debate in history, and calls into question the viability of the next two debates” that remain before the elections, the director of debates at the University of Michigan, Aaron Kall, told EFE.

Neither Biden nor Trump clearly won the fight, according to Kall, but the former was the closest to victory because he has an advantage in some key states, and now he will be able to “hold” it.
