Former VP Biden’s Presidential Debate Words Analyzed

Color Key

Orange letters are attacks against the policies of President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence’s administration.
Yellow letters are personal attacks against either President Donald Trump or Vice President Mike Pence or general attacks against the Republican party. These have no place in a civil debate and only lead to division.
Purple letters are statements about his record, Senator Kamala Harris’s record.
Gray letters are statements about his personal values or Senator Kamala Harris’s values or beliefs.
Blue letters are the most important, because those are policy statements or “We WILL ___” statements. These are the most significant words spoken in a debate. Sadly, there have been few of these uttered in either of the two 2020 presidential debates. Scroll below to see how few policy words were spoken.
Black letters are extra, they are not history records, policy statements or attacks. Sometimes, they are “thank you’s” or contain gestures. Often times, they are time-fillers in order to avoid the real question.

What He Said:

“How you doing, man?                
I’m well.

Laughed

Well, first of all, thank you for doing this and looking forward to this, Mr. President. The American people have a right to have a say in who the Supreme Court nominee is and that say occurs when they vote for United States Senators and when they vote for the President of United States. They’re not going to get that chance now because we’re in the middle of an election already. The election has already started. Tens of thousands of people already voted and so the thing that should happen is we should wait. We should wait and see what the outcome of this election is because that’s the only way the American people get to express their view is by who they elect as President and who they elect as Vice President. Now, what’s at stake here is the President’s made it clear, he wants to get rid of the Affordable Care Act. He’s been running on that, he ran on that and he’s been governing on that. He’s in the Supreme Court right now trying to get rid of the Affordable Care Act, which will strip 20 million people from having health insurance now, if it goes into court. And the justice, I’m not opposed to the justice, she seems like a very fine person. But she’s written, before she went in the bench, which is her right, that she thinks that the Affordable Care Act is not Constitutional. The other thing that’s on the court, and if it’s struck down, what happens? Women’s rights are fundamentally changed. Once again, a woman could pay more money because she has a pre-existing condition of pregnancy. They’re able to charge women more for the same exact procedure a man gets. And that ended when we, in fact, passed the Affordable Care Act, and there’s a hundred million people who have pre-existing conditions and they’ll be taken away as well. Those pre-existing conditions, insurance companies are going to love this. And so it’s just not appropriate to do this before this election. If he wins the election and the Senate is Republican, then he goes forward. If not, we should wait until February.

He’s elected to the next election. The election’s already started.

That’s simply not true.

Laughed

Open discussion.

Number one, he knows what I proposed. What I proposed is that we expand Obamacare and we increase it. We do not wipe any. And one of the big debates we had with 23 of my colleagues trying to win the nomination that I won, were saying that Biden wanted to allow people to have private insurance still. They can. They do. They will under my proposal. That is simply a lie.

My party is me. And right now, I am the Democratic Party. I am the Democratic Party right now.

The platform of the Democratic Party is wh- what I, in fact, approved of, what I approved of. Now, here’s the deal. The deal is that it’s going to wipe out pre-existing conditions. And, by the way, the 200,000 people that have died on his watch, how many of those have survived?

Well, there’s seven million people that contracted COVID. What does it mean for them going forward if you strike down the Affordable Care Act? Laughed

I’m happy to talk about this. Look- Look, here’s the deal 

Laughed 

Late on the draw

By the way

You’re not going to be able to shut him up. 

Laughed

Let me finish. The point is that the President also is opposed to Roe V. Wade. That’s on the ballot as well and the court, in the court, and so that’s also at stake right now. And so the election is already begun 

Well, because you say-

Uh. It’s on the ballot in the court. In the court.

Donald, would you just be quiet.

I don’t know her…

  [uttered something]

Laughed 

[uttered something] 

Alright

Laughed

Good healthcare [laughed]

Laughed  Laughed  [uttered something]

Laughed. Laughed. Laughed 

He has not cut healthcare

Laughed.

[uttered something]

Yes.

It is not!

Sorry.

It does not!  It’s only for those people that are so poor It does not. It’s only for those people who are so poor they qualify for Medicaid they can get that free in most States, except Governors who want to deny people who are poor Medicaid. Anyone who qualifies for Medicare-

M-m-excuse me, Medicaid would automatically be enrolled in the public option. The vast majority of the American people would still not be in that option. Number one. Number two. 

[uttered something]

Yeah, well the manifesto 

Look, hey-

I’m not going to listen to him-The fact of the matter is I beat Bernie Sanders. 

I beat him by a whole hell of a lot. I’m-I’m here facing you old buddy.

Well, I’ll tell you-

All he knows how to do is hurt people  Look, here’s the deal.  I got very lucky. I’m going to get very lucky tonight as well. And, tonight I’m going to make sure–  because here’s the deal.  Here’s the deal, the The fact is that everything he’s saying so far is simply a lie. I’m not here to call out his lies. Everybody knows he’s a liar. I just wanna make sure. I wanna make sure. [Laughed] God. I wanna make sure. No, he doesn’t know how to do that. He has, 

You picked the wrong- The wrong guy, the wrong time. Here’s the deal. The whole idea- There is no manifesto number one.  Number two, Number two–I, I…

Folks, do you have any idea what this clown’s doing? [uttered something] Well I’ll tell you what, he is not for any  help for people needing healthcare. Because- Because-he, in fact, already has costs 10 million people their healthcare that they had from their employers because of his recession. Number one. Number two, there are 20 million people getting healthcare through Obamacare now that he wants to take it away. He won’t ever look you in the eye and say that’s what he wants to do. Take it away. And by the way, he doesn’t know how  He doesn’t know how.

to do that. He has never done a single thing. [Looked confused} [uttered something] 

Not true.

[Laughed}

[uttered something]. [uttered something] That’s what he’s known for

That’s what his people have said.

He has no plan for healthcare. He sends out wishful thinking. He has Executive Orders that have no power. He hasn’t lowered drug costs for anybody. He’s been promising a healthcare plan since he

got elected. He has none, like almost everything else he talks about. He does not have a plan. He doesn’t have a plan. And the fact is this man doesn’t know what he’s talking about.  He doesn’t have a plan.

Sure

No, I’m saying–  

Whatever position I take on that, that’ll become the issue. The issue is the American people should speak. You should go out and vote. 

You’re voting now. Vote and let your Senators know strongly    how you feel. Let. Vote now. Make sure you, in fact, let people know, your Senators.  I’m not going to answer the question, because–

The question. [Closed eyes] Will you shut up, man? This is so–   This is so unpresidential

That was really a productive segment, wasn’t it? 

Keep yapping, man. 

Yeah, they sure do. 

[uttered something]

[Laughed]

2 [uttered something]

Good luck. 200,000 dead. As you said, over seven million infected in the United States. We, in fact, have five perc- four percent of the world’s population, 20% of the deaths. 40,000 people a day are contracting COVID. In addition to that, about between 750 and 1000 people a day are dying. When he was presented with that number, he said, “It is what it is.” Well, it is what it is because you are who you are. That’s why it is. The President has no plan. He hasn’t laid out anything. He knew all the way back in February how serious this crisis was. He knew it was a deadly disease. 

What did he do? He’s on tape as acknowledging he knew it. He said he didn’t tell us or give people a warning of it because he didn’t want to panic the American people. You don’t panic. He panicked. In addition to that, what did he do? He went in and he

we were insisting that the Chinese, that the people we had in the ground in China should be able to go to Wuhan  and determine for themselves how dangerous this was. He did not even ask Xi to do that.   He told us what a great job Xi was doing. He said we owe him debt of gratitude for being so transparent with us. And what did he do then? He then did nothing. He waited and waited and waited. He still doesn’t have a plan.  I laid out, back in March exactly what we should be doing and I laid out again in July what we should be doing. We should be providing the money the House has passed in order to be able to go out and get people the help they need to keep their businesses open. Open schools it costs a lot of money. You should get out of your bunker and get out of the sand trap and get in your golf course and go in the Oval Office and bring together the Democrats and Republicans and fund what needs to be done now to save lives.

[uttered something]

It’s unrelated.

[Laughed]   [Laughed]  [Laughed]

I know how to do the job. I know how to get the job done.

[uttered something]. Fourteen thousand. Fourteen thousand  people died, not two hundred thousand, there was noone, we didn’t shut down the economy. This is his economy that’s being he shut down. The reason it’s shut down is because, look, you folks at home. How many of you got up this morning and had an empty chair at the kitchen table because someone died of COVID? How many of you are in a situation where you lost your mom or dad and you couldn’t even speak to them, you had a nurse holding a phone up so you could in fact say goodbye?  How many people?  And, and  by the way

His own CDC Director says we could lose as many as another 200,000 people between now and the end of the year. And he said, if we just wear a mask, we can save half those numbers. Just a mask. And by the way, in terms 

of the whole notion of a vaccine, we’re for a vaccine, but I don’t trust him at all. Nor do you. I know you don’t. What we trust is a scientist.  We trust Dr. Fauci.  And–and–by the way. [Uttered something]

[Laughed]. God.

[uttered something]

This is the same man  who told you, by Easter this would be gone away, by the warm weather it’d be gone, miraculously. Like a miracle. And by the way, maybe you could inject some bleach in your arm and that would take care of it. This is the same man.

[uttered something]  

So here’s the deal. This man is talking about a vaccine. Every serious. Every serious company is talking about maybe having a vaccine done by the end of the year, but the distribution of that vaccine will not occur until sometime beginning of the middle of next year to get it out, if we get the vaccine. And pray God we will. Pray God we will.

No more than the question you just asked him. You pointed out he puts pressure and disagrees with his own scientists. You can’t Well no no you can trust the scientists. He didn’t she didn’t say that, you can trust the

yes, well  the, that–

that’s what he’s going to try to do, but there’s millions of scientists, there’s thousands of scientists out there like here at this great hospital that don’t work for him, their job dodent depend on him. That’s not…They’re the people  And by the way, [uttered something]

and by the way,  Do you believe for a moment what he’s telling you, in light of all the lies he’s told you about the whole issue relating to COVID? He still hasn’t acknowledged. 

He still hasn’t even acknowledged that he knew this was happening, knew how dangerous it was going to be back in February, and he didn’t even tell you. He’s on record as saying it. He panicked or he just looked at the stock market. One of the two. Because guess what? A lot of people died

and a lot more are going to die unless he gets a lot smarter, a lot quicker-  [Laughed]

Oh, give me a break.

Well, let’s have this debate [uttered something]. See [utters something]. Okay [looked confused]

Because he doesn’t have a plan. If I were running it, I’d know what the plan is. You’ve got to provide these businesses the ability to have the money to be able to reopen with the PPE, as well as with the sanitation they need. You have to provide 

[uttered something] Will he just shush for a minute? 

And, by the way, Nancy Pelosi and Schumer, they have a plan.  He won’t even meet with them. Republicans won’t even meet in the Senate- And he said- he sits in his golf course, I mean-  I mean, think about it 

[Laughed]

Oh God.

You just admitted you shut it down. 

I’ve got to respond to that I’ve got to- respond to that

[Laughed] 

Just like your rally?

[Laughed] 

Look, the way to open businesses is give them the wherewithal to be able open.

We provided money, the-

[confused look]

Well, masks make a big difference. His own head of the CDC said if we just wore masks between now, if everybody wore a mask and social distanced between now and January, we’d probably save up to 100,000

lives. It matters. And no serious person said the opposite No Serious person He did not say the-

[Laughed]

By the, by the way, did y-you see one of the last big rallies he has? And a reporter came up to him to ask him a question, he said, “No, no, no. Stand back, put on your mask, put on a mask. Have you been tested?

I’m way far away from those other people.” That’s what he said, “I’m going to be okay.” He not worried about you. He’s not worried about the people out there breathing on one another No negative effect, come on. Well–

Yes

Yes I would 

He’s been totally irresponsible in the way that he has handled the um social distancing and people wearing masks, basically encouraged them not to. He’s a fool on that

The difference is millionaires and billionaires like him in the middle of the COVID crisis have done very well. Billionaires have made another $300 billion because of his profligate tax cut–uh, uh, proposal, and he only focused on the market. But you folks at home, you folks living in Scranton and Claymont and all the small towns and working class towns in America, how well are you doing?  This guy paid $750 in taxes

Do I get my time back? The fact is that he has in fact, worked on this in a way that he’s going to be the first president of the United States to leave office, having fewer jobs in his administration than when he became president. Fewer jobs than when he became president. First one in American history. Secondly, the people who have lost their jobs are those people who have been on the front lines. Those people who have been saving our lives, those people who have been out there dying.

People who’ve been putting themselves in the way to make sure that we could all try to make it. And the idea that he is insisting that we go forward and open when you have almost half the states in America with a significant increase in COVID deaths and COVID cases in the United 

States of America, and he wants to open it up more. Why is he want to open it up? Why does he take care of the… You can’t fix the economy until you fix the COVID crisis. And he has no intention of doing anything about making it better for you all at home

Schools. Why aren’t schools open? Because it costs a lot of money to open them safely. They were going to give, his administration going to give the teachers and school students masks, and then they decided no, couldn’t do that because it’s not a national emergency. Not a 

national emergency. They’ve done nothing to help small businesses. Nothing. They’re closing. One in six is now gone. He ought to get on the job and take care of the needs of the American people so we can

open safely.

People want to be-safe 

[Laughed] [Laughed]

Show us your tax returns. Show us your tax returns.

Oh 

[Laughed]

Release your tax returns. Release your tax returns

When?  [uttered something]

[Laughed]

Yeah, I do want to respond. Look, the tax code that made him, that put him in a position that he pays less tax than on the money a school teacher makes–than on the money a school teacher pays–is because of him… He says he’s smart because he can take advantage of the tax code. And he does take advantage of the tax code. That’s why I’m going to eliminate the Trump tax cuts. I’m gonna eliminate those tax cuts, and make sure that we invest in the people who in fact need the help. People out there need help.  Because you weren’t President, screwing things up. You’re the worst President America’s ever had. Come on

Well, just take a look at what is the analysis done by Wall Street firms, points out that my economic plan would create seven million more jobs than his in four years, number one. And number two, it would create an additional $1 trillion in economic growth, because it would be about buying American. The federal government spends $600 billion a year on everything from ships, to steel, to buildings and the like. And under my proposal, we’re going to make sure that every penny of that has to be made by a company-  Oh, I–

By the way, I’m going to eliminate a significant number of the taxes. I’m going to make the corporate tax 28%. It shouldn’t be 21%. You have nineteen companies uh uh ninety one companies federal and um I mean fortune five hundereds who don’t pay a single penny in tax making billions of dollars.

Because-Because you in fact passed that,  That was your tax proposal.  Yeah, you got it done. And it’s…uh…The economy is busted. Let me finish–

Not lower taxes for the American people.

[uttered something]

Half of the companies–

Hardly any companies have poured in  [uttered something] 

Look–  … we inherited the worst recession, short of a depression in American history. I was asked to bring it back. We were able to have an economic recovery that created the jobs you’re talking about. We handed him a booming economy, he blew it.  He blew it.

Yeah, well, because, what he did, even before Covid, manufacturing went in the hole. Manufacturing went in the hole.  Number one.  And number two, number three

No.  This guy is something.

[uttered something]

I’m the guy that brought back the automobile industry. We brought back. I was asked to bring back Chrystler and General Motors, we brought em back right here in the state of Ohio and Michigan. He blew it, they’re gone. He blew it. And in fact they’re gone-

That is not true Not That did not happen.  And so, you take a look at what he’s actually done. He’s done very little.

His trade deals are the same way. He talks about these great trade deals. You know, he talks about the art of the deal. China’s made–perfected the art of the steal. We have a higher defecit with China now than we did before. We have the highest defi-trade deficit with Mexico.

[utters something]  Simply not true. Not true.

That is not true.  That is not true. None of that is true. None of that is true. 

None of that is true. It’s totally discredited totally discredited, and by the way– That is not true.  But my son–

There’s not a fact. It’s been totally discr-edited [uttered something].  My son–

did nothing wrong in Barisma, and The only guy that  He doesn’t want to let me answer because he knows I have the truth. He–his position has been totally thoroughly discredited. By everybody–well, by the media, by our allies-by the World Bank, by evr- By everyone–has discredited it. As a matter of fact, even the people Who testified under oath. [uttered something] Even the people under-

He testified. Testified. … testified under oath in his administration said I did my job and I did it very well. I did it honorably. Everyo-well, I’ll give you the list of the people who testified. I’m sure you’ve already fired most

of them because they did a good job. Well, here’s Well, it’s hard to get any word in with this clown. Excuse me, this person. That is simply not true.

He didn’t–look, here’s the deal, we want to talk about families and ethics, I don’t want to do that, I mean, his family, we could talk about all night. His family’s already–

And that’s such a– 4This is not about my family or his family it’s about your family, the American people. He doesn’t. That’s not true. It doesn’t want to talk about what you need you, the American people. It’s about you. That’s what we’re talking about here. He didn’t take that. Try to be honest

That is absolutely not true Yeah, good point.

[Laughs]

It’s about equity and equality, it’s about decency, it’s about the constitution, and we have never walked away from trying to quie-require equity for everyone, equality for the whole of America. But, we’ve never accomplished it. But, we’ve never walked away from it like he has done. It is true, the reason I got in the race is when those people close your eyes, remember what those people look like coming out of the fields carrying torches, their veins bulging, spewting, just spewing anti-semetic bile and accompanied by the Klu Klux Klan. A young woman got killed. And I asked the President what he thought, he said there were very fine people on both sides

No president’s ever said anything like that. Now, in the second. The second point I’d make to you is that when Floyd was killed, when Mr. Floyd was killed, there was a peaceful protest in front of the White House. What did he do? He came out of his bunker, had the military do use tear gas on them so he could walk across to a church and hold up a Bible. And then what happened after that? The Bishop of that very church said that it was a disgrace. The general who was with him said all he all he ever wants to do is divide people,not unite people at all. This is a president who has used everything as a dog whistle, to try to generate racists hatred, racist division. This is a man who, in fact, you talk about helping

African-Americans, one in 1000 African Americans has been killed because of the crona…coronavirus. And if he doesn’t do something quickly, by the end of the year, one in 500 will have been killed. One in 500 African Americans.

This man is as a savior of African-Americans? This man cares at all? This man’s done virtually nothing. Look, the fact is that you have to look at what he’s talks about. You have to look at what he did.

And what he did has been disastrous for the African-American community.

That’s not true. I never said that

Yes, there is. There’s sys..systemic  injustice in this country, in education and work and in law enforcement  

and the way in which it’s enforced. But look, the vast majority of police officers are good, decent, honorable men and women.  They risk their lives every day to take care of us, but there are some bad apples. And when they occur, when they find them, they have to be sorted out. They have to be held accountable.

They have to be held accountable. And what I’m going to do as President of the United States is call together an entire group of people at the White House, everything from the civil rights groups, to the police officers, to the police chiefs, and we’re going to work this out.

We’re going to work this out. So we changed the way in which we have more transparency, in when these things happen. These cops aren’t happy to see what happened to George Floyd. These cops aren’t happy to see what happened to Breonna Taylor. Most don’t like it,

but we have to have a system where people are held accountable when… And by the way, violence in response is never appropriate, never appropriate. Peaceful protest is, violence is never appropriate.

That is not peaceful protest. I did not say that

[uttered something]

Nobody’s doing that. He’s the racist.

Here’s the deal. I know a lot more about this-

The fact is that there is racial insensitivity. People have to be made aware of what other people feel like, what insults them, what is demeaning to them. It’s important people know. Many people don’t want to hurt other people’s feelings, but it makes a big difference. It makes a gigantic difference in the way a child is able to grow up and have a sense of self-esteem. It’s a little bit like how this guy and his friends look down on so many people. They look down their nose on people like Irish Catholics, like me, who grow up in Scranton. They look down on people who don’t have money. They look down on people who are of a different faith. They looked down on people who are a different color. In fact, we’re all Americans. The only way we’re going to bring this country together is bring everybody together. There’s nothing we cannot do, if we do it together.

We can take this on and we can defeat racism in American.

Oh my Lord. This is ridiculous Absolutely ridiculous

violent crime I’m in favor of law. You follow, and a little bit of order. Of course everyone’s in favor of law and order.  Law and order with justice, where people get treated  fairly And the fact of the matter is, crime went down seventeed–fifteen percent in our administration. It’s gone up on his watch. 

Republican cities. Republic- 6 [uttered something]

We would run it the way  suburbs  He wouldn’t know a suburb unless you took a wrong turn. I was raised in the suburbs. 

This is not 1950

All these dog whistles and racism don’t work anymore. Suburbs are by and large integrated. There’s many people today driving their kids to soccer practice and/or black and white and Hispanic in the same car as there have been any time in the past,

what really is a threat to the suburbs and their safety is his failure to deal with COVID. They’re dying in the suburbs. His failure to deal with the environment, they’re being flooded, they’re being burned out because his refusal to do anything. That’s why the suburbs are in trouble.

[uttered something]

Look, what I support are the police having the opportunity to deal with the problems they face and I’m totally opposed to defunding the police offices. As a matter of fact police, local police, the only one defunding in his budget calls for a $400 million cut in local law enforcement assistance. They need more assistance. They need when they show up for a 9-11 call to have someone with them as a psychologist or psychiatrist to keep them from having to use force and be able to talk people down.

We have to have community policing like we had before where the officers get to know the people in the communities. That’s when crime went down, it didn’t go up. It went down. And so we have to be…

That is not true. Look, that’s not true. Not true.

Look, we don’t have time to do anything except [uttered something] 

[uttered something]

I don’t hold public office. Now I am a former vice president. I’ve made it clear. I’ve made it clear in my public statements that the violence should be prosecuted. It should be prosecuted and anyone who committed it should be prosecuted.

They can in fact take care of it if he just stay out of the way.

Here’s the thing”

And by the way, his own former spokesperson said, 

And by the way his own former spokesperson said, “Riots and chaos and violence help he cause.” 3 I do 5 I think it–Kelly Anne Conway. She said that. And so, here’s the point. The point is that.

That’s what he is keeps trying to rile everything up. He doesn’t He doesn’t want to calm things down instead of going in and talking to people and saying, “Let’s get everybody together. Figure out how to deal with this.” What’s he do? He just pours gasoline in the fire constantly and every single solitary time.

Do it.

Say it, do it. Say it. Proud Boys

[Laughed] He’s own FBI Director said unlike white supremacist, Antifa is an idea not an organization, not a militia-

That’s what HIS FBI-

His FBI director said 6 Every body in your administration tells you the truth is a bad idea. You have no idea about anything.

[uttered something]

Under this president, we become weaker, sicker, poor, more divided and more violent. When I was vice president, we inherited a recession. I was asked to fix it. I did. We left him a booming economy and he caused the recession. With regard to being weaker, the fact is that I’ve gone head to head with Putin and made it clear to him we’re not going to take any of his stuff.

He’s Putin’s puppy. He still refuses to even say anything to Putin about the bounty on the heads of American soldiers. By the way, my son

He never keeps his word.

Can you get back 30 seconds? So thirdly, we’re poor. The billionaires have gotten much more wealthy by a tune of over $3- $400 billion more just since COVID. 

You in the home, you got less you’re in more trouble than you were before. In terms of being more violent. When we were in office there were 15% less violence in America than there is today. He’s President United States. It’s on his watch. And with regard to more divided the nation, it can’t stay divided. We can’t be this way. And speaking of my son, the way you talk about the military, the way you talk about them being losers and being and and and  just being suckers. My son was in Iraq. He spent a year there. He got the Brown Star. He got the Conspicuous Service Medal. He was not a loser. He was a Patriot and the people left behind

there were heroes. And I resent-

I’m talking about my son, Beau Biden, you’re talking about Hunter?

He was not dishonorably discharged.

Not true That is simply not true My son, my son, like a lot of people at home had a drug problem. He’s overtaking it. He’s fixed it. He’s worked on it. And I’m proud of him, I’m proud of my son. But he wasn’t given tens of millions of dollars, that was totally discre-

Totally discredited. Totally discredited. So do I

That is not true. That report is totally discredited Mitt Romney on that committee said it wasn’t worth taxpayer’s money. That report was written for political reason. So would I.

He’s absolutely wrong, number one. Number two, if in fact, during our administration in the recovery act, I was in charge able to bring down the cost of renewable energy to cheaper than are as cheap as coal and gas and oil. Nobody’s going to build another coal fired plant in America. No one’s going to build another uh uh coal fire plant in America. They’re going to move to renewable energy. Number one, number two, we’re going to make sure that we are able to take the federal fleet and turn it into a fleet that’s run on their electric vehicles.

Making sure that we can do that, we’re going to put 500,000 charging stations in all of the highways that we’re going to be building in the future. We’re going to build a economy that in fact is going to provide for the ability of us to take 4 million buildings and make sure that they

in fact are weatherized in a way that in fact will they’ll emit significantly less gas and oil because the heat will not be going out. There’s so many things that we can do now to create thousands and thousands of jobs. We can get to net zero, in terms of energy production, by 2035. Not only not costing people jobs, creating jobs, creating millions of good-paying jobs. Not 15 bucks an hour, but prevailing wage, by having a new infrastructure that in fact, is green. And the first thing I will do, I will rejoin the Paris Accord. I will join the Paris Accord because with us out of it, look what’s happening. It’s all falling apart. And talk about someone who has no relationship with foreign policy. The rainforests of Brazil are being torn down, are being ripped down. More carbon is absorbed in that rainforest than every bit of carbon that’s emitted in the United States.

Instead of doing something about that, I would be gathering up and making sure we had the countries of the world coming up with $20 billion, and say, “Here’s $20 billion. Stop, stop tearing down the forest. And If you don’t, then you’re going to have significant economic consequences. Well he hadn’t drawn a line, he

He wants to make sure that methane’s not a problem. You can now emit more methane without it being a problem. Methane. This is a guy who says that you don’t have to have mileage standards for automobiles that exist now. This is the guy who says that,

It’s all true. And here’s the deal-

I’m talking about the Biden plan

No.

That is not-

Not true-

Not true

Not true

That is simply not the case-

What it’s going to do, it’s going to create thousands and millions of jobs. Good paying jobs. He doesn’t know how to do that. The fact is, it’s going to create millions of good paying jobs, and these tax incentives for people to weatherize, which he wants to get rid of.

It’s going to make the economy much safer. Look how much we’re paying now to deal with the hurricanes, deal with… By the way, he has an answer for hurricanes. He said, maybe we should drop a nuclear weapon on them, and they may- Yeah he did say that Here’s the deal

… we’re going to be in a position where we can create hard, hard, good jobs by making sure the environment is clean, and we all are in better shape. We spend billions of dollars now, billions of dollars, on floods, hurricanes, rising seas. We’re in real trouble. Look what’s happened just in the Midwest with these storms that come through and wipe out entire sections and counties in Iowa. They didn’t happen before. They’re because of global warming. We make up 15% of the world’s problem. But the rest of the world, we’ve got to get them to come along. That’s why we have to get back into the Paris Accord.

for forty seven- 

That is not my plan The Green New Deal is not my plan. [uttered something]

That is not true. I-did not say that. Play it

The final question is, I can’t remember which of all his rantings

[uttered something]

The economy…

The Green New Deal will pay for itself as we move forward. We’re not going to build plants that, in fact, are great

Pardon me?

No, I don’t support it. I support the Biden Plan I support the Biden Plan that I put forward. The Biden Plan, which is different than what he calls the radical Green New Deal

Prepare to let people vote. They should go to iwillvote.com, decide how they’re going to vote, when they’re going to vote, and what means by which they’re going to vote. His own Homeland Security director, and as well as the FBI director, says that there is no evidence at all that mail-in ballots are a source of being manipulated and cheating. They said that. The fact is that here are going to be millions of people because of COVID that are going to be voting by mail-in ballots like he does, by the way. He sits behind the Resolute Desk and sends his ballot to Florida, number one. Number two, we’re going to make sure that those people who want to vote in person are able to vote because there are enough poll watchers are there to make sure they can socially distance. The polls are open on time, and the polls stay open until the votes are counted. And this is all about trying to dissuade people from voting because he’s trying to confu- to scare people into thinking that it’s not going to be legitimate. Show up and vote. You will determine the outcome of this election. Vote, vote, vote. If you’re able to vote early in your state, vote early. If you’re able to vote in person, vote in person.

Vote whatever way is the best way for you, because you will… He cannot stop you from being able to determine the outcome of this election. And in terms of whether or not… When the votes are counted and they’re all counted, that will be accepted. If I win, that will be accepted. If I lose, that’ll be accepted. But by the way, if in fact he says, he’s not sure what he’s going to accept. Well, let me tell you something, it doesn’t matter, because if we get the votes, it’s going to be all over. He’s going to go. He can’t stay in power. It won’t happen. It won’t happen

So vote. Just make sure you understand, you have it in your control to determine what this country is going to look like the next four years. Is it going to change, or are you going to get four more years of these lies?

There is no…no. There is no evidence for that. There is no evidence to that. In five states, we had…Five states have had mail-in ballots for the last decade or more. Five, including two Republican states. And you don’t have to solicit the ballot. It’s sent to you. It’s sent to your home. What they’re saying is that it has to be a postmark by  the time, by electiond day. If it dodent’ get in by the 7th, 8th, 9th, it still should be counted. He’s just afraid of counting the votes

I’m concerned that any court would settle this because because here’s the deal. When you m-m-when you get a ballot and you fill it out, you’re supposed to have an affidavit. If you didn’t know, you have someone say that, this is me. You should be able to, if in fact you can verify that’s you before the ballot is thrown out, that’s sufficient to be able to count the ballot because someone made a mistake and not dotting the correct I. Who they voted for, testify, say who they voted for, say it’s you. That is totally legitimate. [uttered something]

[uttered something] Yes

Yes. And here’s the deal. We count the ballots, as you pointed out. Some of these ballots in some states can’t even be opened until election day. And if there’s thousands of ballots, it’s going to take time to do it. And by the way, our military… They’ve been voting by ballots since the end of the Civil War, in effect. And that’s what’s going to happen. Why is it, for them, somehow not fraudulent. It’s the same process. It’s honest. No one has established at all that there is fraud related to mail-in ballots, that somehow it’s a fraudulent process.

He has no idea what he’s talking about. Here’s the deal. The fact is, I will accept it, and he will too. You know why? Because once the winner is declared after all the ballots are counted, all the votes are counted, that’ll be the end of it. That’ll be the end of it. And if it’s me, in fact, fine. If it’s not me, I’ll support the outcome. And I’ll be a president, not just for the Democrats. I’ll be a president for Democrats and Republicans. And this guy-

What Did His Words Amount To?

Former Vice President Joe Biden spoke a total of 6,915 words.

  • 2,803 of his words, or approximately 41% of what JB said was a policy attack against President Donald Trump.
  • 986 of his words, or approximately 14% of what JB said was a personal attack against the President.
  • 347 of his words, or approximately .05% of what JB said was about his record.
  • 1085 of his words, or approximately 16% of what JB said was a statement about his policies.
  • 692 of his words, or approximately 2% of what JB said was a personal value or belief statement.
  • I think it’s also important to note that almost 27% of what JB said in the debate did not add to the debate because it did not declare any policies, records, personal values, or even attacks.

To Sum Up His Policy Statements

Below is a list of what former Vice President Joe Biden declared he would do. This is not an analysis of what is true or false or of what each statement actually means. It’s only a list of what he said.

  1. He will expand Obamacare and increase it.
  2. He will allow for private insurance.
  3. Obamacare will only be for those who are so poor they can get Medicaid or Medicare (or one or the other, it was hard to tell what he was saying).
  4. He would give businesses money for PPE and sanitation.
  5. He is going to eliminate the Trump tax cuts and invest in people who “need” help with the tax money (redistributing wealth).
  6. His 3 trillion dollar Biden Green New Deal plan would create 1 trillion in economic growth and create 7 million jobs.
  7. He said the Green New Deal will pay for itself.
  8. He will strengthen our trade with China, especially since they perfected the art of steel.
  9. The 1 trillion economic growth would be because he would only buy American–every penny of the 600 billion America spends on steel ships and buildings will be from American companies only.
  10. Corporate tax will be 28%.
  11. He will gather civil rights leaders and police officers at the White House to work things out.
  12. He is planning to have psychologists or psychiatrists (he wasn’t sure which one) follow police on calls to talk people down.
  13. He won’t allow any more coal fire plants in America, they will move to renewable energy.
  14. The federal fleet will be all electric cars under his administration.
  15. He’s going to put in 500,000 charging stations for electric cars across the highways.
  16. He is going to have 4 million buildings torn down or re-structured to be energy-efficient.
  17. He will rejoin the Paris Accord.
  18. He will send $20 billion to Brazil for the rain forest.

Did President Trump Knock Down the Military in the First Debate?

After the September 29 Presidential Debate, I noticed people claiming that President Trump had spoken ill of the military that night. I didn’t remember any such behavior (though I did see plenty of other upsetting behaviors). It made me wonder if the claims were true, so I decided to study the transcript.

I found the entire transcript online, and I have pasted every word President Trump said about the military and the vets below. First, though, I would like to sum up what the transcript says.

What Did President Trump Say About the Military in the First Presidential Debate?

Note that these statements do not represent my opinions, nor have I fact checked these statements yet. This is simply a summation of what the President said in the debate:

  1. The Obama/Biden administration did not provide proper healthcare for the military, and 308,000 military people died on their watch.
  2. The military was “broken” and in debt when Obama/Biden left office, and Trump had to fix it.
  3. Two hundred and fifty military leaders and generals are supporting the Trump campaign.
  4. The 1619 Project/”Critical Race Theory” is racist and was being taught in our schools and to our military.
  5. Trump has re-built the military and Space Force.
  6. Trump fixed the VA, which was a mess under the Obama/Biden administration.
  7. People were dying because of the Obama/Biden administration.
  8. The Trump administration has fixed the VA to take care of our vets.
  9. The Trump campaign has a 91% approval rating from the vets.
  10. Hunter (Biden) got thrown out of the military for cocaine use.
  11. Biden spoke ill of the military and it is on tape.
  12. The military is all set up to deliver the COVID-19 vaccine when it is ready.
  13. Military ballots with “Trump” on them were found in a garbage can recently.

How Did He Knock Down the Military?

Perhaps saying that the military was “broken” under the Obama/Biden administration was knocking down the military? I think he was attempting to say that Obama/Biden did not take care of the military as they should have. (Again, I have not fact checked this, I am only stating what he said). I don’t personally think he was speaking ill of the military in this statement.

None of the press are talking about President Trump’s claims that he has a 91% approval rating among veterans. If this were a false claim and could be proven false, the media would be all over it. This means it is either true or cannot be proven untrue.

Overall, I don’t personally see any statements where he knocked down the military. If you disagree, please leave a comment and let me know. If you would like to read all of his exact words about the military that he spoke during the debate, you may do so below.

The Transcript (Everything President Said About the Military at the September 29, 2020 Debate)

Joe, you’ve had 308,000 military people dying because you couldn’t provide them proper healthcare in the military. So don’t tell me about this.

(regarding critical race theory and the 1619 Project)

44:03

“A rebuilding of the military, including Space Force and all of the other things. A fixing of the VA which was a mess under him, 308,000 people died because they didn’t have proper health care. It was a mess. And we now got a 91% approval rating at the VA, our vets. We take care of our vets. But we’ve rebuilt our military.”

47:44

“I don’t know Beau. I know Hunter. Hunter got thrown out of the military. He was thrown out dishonorably discharged.”

“For cocaine use.”

“He said it on tape.”

1:00

“Well, we’re going to deliver it right away. We have the military all set up. Logistically, they’re all set up. We have our military that delivers soldiers and they can do 200,000 a day. They’re going to be delivering-”

1:09

“Hey, they found ballots in a wastepaper basket three days ago, and they all had the name military ballots. There were military. They all had the name Trump on them.”
