USA election: 'Unhinged' Donald Trump unleashes on journalist

Savannah Guthrie was completely baffled when Donald Trump insisted retweeting a conspiracy theory was fine, telling the president at the NBC Town Hall that he can't act like a 'crazy uncle'.

"I will flat-out just change the law and eliminate those executive orders [that threatened LGBTQ rights]", Biden said.

'Whether I am a defeated candidate for president back teaching or I'm elected president, it's a major element of everything that I'm about because it reflects who we are as a nation, ' Biden said.

On the other hand, a survey has found that while nearly half of Indian Americans approve of Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi's performance, they remain steadfastly Democratic despite the apparent courtship between Modi and US President Donald Trump - 68 per cent plan to vote for Joe Biden and 22 per cent for Trump. Guthrie then mentioned that even Republican Sen.

The president squared off against the esteemed journalist on Thursday night (local time) as she grilled him over white supremacy, his handling of the coronavirus pandemic and QAnon.

An exchange over QAnon produced a rather startling moment, when the president declined to denounce it after Guthrie briefly explained the baseless conspiracy theory: that Trump is battling a "deep state" child sex trafficking ring run by Democrats.

Cesar Conde, chair of the NBC Universal News Group, said the network shared the frustration of critics of the dueling town halls. The rivals spoke in simultaneous town halls broadcast on separate television networks after a debate originally scheduled for Thursday was called off following Trump's COVID-19 election.

"Trump, from the outset, was predominantly confronted with hard questions and little time that did not give him much opportunity to discuss policies", he says.

President Trump's team accused George Stephanopolous of tossing softball questions at Mr. Biden on ABC, while Savannah Guthrie assumed more of an attack dog role against Mr. Trump over on NBC. The number of voters tuning in to each of the town halls could give an unscientific indication of whether people prefer one candidate over the other, with under three weeks to go before Election Day.

Mr Trump said: "You just told me but what you told me doesn't necessarily make it fact".

"I'm open to considering what happens from that point on", Biden said at the town hall. "I'll put it out there, people can decide for themselves", the president said. "While Republicans are more bullish on Modi, it is worth pointing out that Democrats still largely view him favourably".

'Instead of being chastened by being one of the few presidents, the only president to be impeached and have a member of his own party vote to expel him, it emboldened him, ' Biden said.

The debate's rules required that each candidate, using the honour system, had tested negative prior to the Cleveland event. A final debate is still scheduled for October 22 in Nashville, Tennessee.

He said the U.S. was expected to lose more than two million lives from the COVID-19 pandemic.
