Moderator announces topics for 1st Trump-Biden debate

This came after a heated interview he had with President Trump earlier this year.

Cindy McCain joins a growing list of Republicans who have offered their support to Biden - including former Arizona Sen.

Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden said Wednesday that he has started getting ready for the first of three presidential debates - set to kick off next week - and will dig deeper into those preparations on Thursday. "Joe Biden was John McCain's lapdog". He will lead us with dignity. "He will be a commander in chief that the finest fighting force in the history of the world can depend on, because he knows what it is like to send a child off to fight".

Ms McCain's backing could help Mr Biden appeal to Republicans disaffected with the President and give the former Democratic vice-president a boost in Arizona, a crucial swing state that Mr McCain represented in Congress for 35 years.

But Democrats are also fired-up against what they see as Trump stealing another court seat, as Democratic leader Chuck Schumer puts it.

"We'll make a decision probably Saturday, maybe Friday", Trump told reporters as he campaigned in the U.S. state of Ohio. "And I was in disbelief with it for a long time".

A navy pilot, Mr McCain was shot down over North Vietnam in 1967.

During the 2016 campaign, Trump said of McCain, "He's not a war hero".

In another potential warning sign to gung-ho Republicans, the Democratic fundraising group ActBlue reported Sunday that small donors had given a total of $100m since Ginsburg's death. It transcends that. It transcends everything that has occurred. "We've been great friends for many years, but we have a common thread in that we are Blue Star families". We are Republicans, yes, but Americans foremost.

McCain said she thought her late husband would be disappointed with the lack of civility and the vitriol in politics today. I think it's going to be very important.

"I always thought of John as a brother", he added. "You know, he said they're 'losers, suckers'".

"My name is Joe Biden. And I've got to believe that he's somehow watching all of this right now".

Ms McCain announced her support for Mr Biden late on Tuesday evening, nearly a month after appearing in a video at the Democratic National Convention.

Biden and John McCain shared a bipartisan friendship throughout their long political careers that included facing off against one another in the 2008 presidential election. So many BAD decisions on Endless Wars & the V.A., which I brought from a horror show to HIGH APPROVAL. "Cindy can have Sleepy Joe!"

"My husband John lived by a code: Country first", she said.

Trump has repeatedly disparaged John McCain, both before and after his death. She delivered a powerful eulogy of her father in 2018, rebuking Trump himself - who was not invited. Biden consoled Meghan McCain on an appearance on "The View" after her father was diagnosed with the cancer that eventually took his life. "I like people who weren't captured".
