President Trump declared victory over former Wis. President B Biden after his first presidential debate, telling a rally in Duluth, Minnesota, on Wednesday evening that he and other Americans also won.
He told a crowd at Duluth International Airport on Wednesday, “I really enjoyed last night’s discussion with Sleepy J … There is a verdict and they say we, all of us, had a big win last night.”
In the controversial incident on Tuesday, the two candidates clashed over issues ranging from COVID-19 to violence in American cities. Biden responded in part on Wednesday To tweet: “Donald Trump showed the country last night how unfit he is to be president.”
At his rally, Trump continued considering the ratings he received from last night’s incident, arguing that he was responsible to Biden for his record.
“Last night, I did what the corrupt media refused to do. I blamed John Biden for his 47 years of lies, 47 years of betrayal and 47 years of failure. I blamed John for sending you jobs and dreams abroad, and violent mobs at home. To bow, ”he said.
His comments come just a mile from Minneapolis, which has been rocked by protests following the death of George Floyd, a black man who died while in police custody in the city. Minneapolis and other U.S. cities witnessed simultaneous protests and violent unrest during some summers.
He said, “Can you imagine these people? The way they occupy Democrat cities? I don’t even believe it.”
