Urge Harris not to discourage the American people’s confidence in the successful development of a new coronavirus vaccine.
Harris’ attacks on Pence also included the issue of Trump’s tax records, the Trump administration’s tax cuts that “benefit the rich and big companies” and the US fiscal deficit soared, and the Trump administration’s unilateral foreign policy made the United States.

Trump has indicated that he looks forward to participating in the debate. Although Biden expressed his willingness to participate in the second debate on the premise of observing the epidemic prevention measures, he believes that if Trump has not recovered by then, the second debate should not be held.
