Biden Lies and Dodges Questions During Presidential Debate
Former Vice President Joe Biden lied and dodged questions during the first debate with President Trump.
At the end of the debate, Biden tried very hard to create a big gap between himself and his far-left supporters such as Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) and Senator Bernie Sanders (I-Vt) on the Green New Deal.
“That is not my plan. The Green New Deal is not my plan,” Biden said when questioned about the Green New Deal.
NBC News’ fact check-called Biden out.

Biden also refused to answer a direct question about whether he would pack the Supreme Court.
Following President Trump demanding an answer, Biden responded and told the president, “Would you shut up, man?”

The former Vice President also denied his son Hunter did anything wrong by getting investment money from China, a job from a Ukrainian energy company, and a $3.5 million check from the wife of a former mayor of Moscow.
Fox News reports:
“None of that is true,” Biden said in response, adding that Trump’s claims regarding alleged business-related wrongdoing on Hunter Biden’s part had been “totally discredited.”
Biden’s denial about the funds from Russia is undermined by a recent report from the Senate Homeland Security and Finance Committees that revealed Hunter “received $3.5 million in a wire transfer” from Russia.
Finally, Biden refused to condemn Antifa. In fact, he minimized the group by describing them as “an idea.”
President Trump dominated the debate and in response to the president’s pressure, Biden lied and dodged questions.
