It was one of the most highly anticipated events of the campaign as President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden faced off in their first debate. For more than 90 minutes, Trump and Biden went back and forth on the coronavirus, economy, supreme court, and taxes.
But it did not take long for things to get tense.
"47 years, you've done nothing," Trump said.
"Will he just shush for a minute?" Biden asked.
There were angry interruptions by both candidates.
Moderator Chris Wallace said to President Trump, "Let him finish, sir."
"He doesn't know how to do that," Biden said.
And bitter accusations.
"The fact is that everything he saying here is a lie," Trump said.
"It's hard to get any word in with this clown," Biden replied.
The first debate between Trump and Biden erupted in a fight over the nation's response to COVID-19.
"He wants to shut down this country and I want to keep it open," Trump noted.
"Let me shut you down for one second. He wants to shut down the country," Biden replied.
The two at odds on plans to reopen the country.
Biden said it's wrong for Trump to hold large campaign rallies during the pandemic.
"Holding much smaller events," Biden said.
"Because nobody will show up," Trump replied as Wallace laughed.
At one point as Trump talked about Democrats being far left, Biden tried to distance himself.
"I am the Democratic Party right now. The platform of the Democratic Party is what I approve of," he said.
"You just lost the left," Trump responded.
