Trump emerges as clear winner in first debate

Last night’s presidential debate was a doozy. So let’s jump right into the highlights.

Thursday night, President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump sparred over the border crisis, abortion, inflation, and more.

Biden touted strong job numbers and called his predecessor a “convicted felon,” referring to Trump’s hush-money trial verdict. Trump started by praising the economy under his administration while slamming the current economy under Biden.

The former president emerged as a clear victor in the debate, while Biden’s poor mental state could no longer be excused even by his supporters.

According to CNN’s flash poll, 67% of respondents thought Trump won the debate, while only 33% thought the same of Biden.
