Donald Trump commented Friday on the democratic presidential debate at the G20 summit in Japan and criticized Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders for a bad night.
He went after the democratic frontrunners in a tweet and gave them mocking monikers, but did not mention Kamala Harris, the night breakthrough.
& # 39; I'm in Japan on the G-20 and represent our country well, but I heard it wasn't a good day for Sleepy Joe or Crazy Bernie. One is exhausted, the other is crazy – so what's the problem ?, & he tweeted.
President Donald Trump weighed up the democratic debate at a press event with German Chancellor Angela Merkel
Trump mocked Joe Biden and Bernie Sanders because they had bad nights
Earlier, he told German Chancellor Angela Merkel, with whom he met at the world leadership conference, that he would rather spend time with her than look at Democratic presidential candidates.
& # 39; I look forward to spending time with you instead of watching the debate, & # 39; he told her.
The president had complained that Wednesday evening – the first night the candidates had debated – & # 39; boring & # 39; was on his way to Japan, as he wrote in an Air Force One tweet.
He also weighed it up again during his time with Merkel.
& # 39; You know there was a debate going on. They had the first debate last night. It was not very exciting. I can tell you that, & he said.
Biden was seen as a bad night in Thursday's debate after California Sen. Kamala Harris toasted him for his recent nostalgia about a few segregationist democratic senators, and reproached him for having thwarted federal intervention decades ago to school America & # 39; s schools. desegregate via forced busing.
& # 39; It was painful to hear you talk about the reputation of two senators from the United States who built their reputation and career on the segregation of the race in this country, & # 39; she said, referring to Biden's memorable memories of Mississippi Sen. James Eastland and Georgia's Herman Talmadge.
& # 39; And that was not only the case, but you also worked with them to resist traveling, & # 39; she continued and revealed that she was part of second-class black students to integrate public schools in Berkeley, California.
Biden insisted that the Berkeley City Council, not the US Senate, be responsible – but stammered to explain why he was opposed to federal government intervention at the time.
While defending his half-century record on voting rights, a confused Biden finally threw up his hands and blurted: & My time is up. I apologize. & # 39;
Kamala Harris & # 39; attacked Joe Biden in Thursday night's debate
Ten candidates were on stage for part two of the first democratic debate on Thursday in Miami, Florida. From left to right are: self-help author Marianne Williamson, former Colorado Gov John Hickenlooper, businessman Andrew Yang, Indiana Mayor Pete Buttigieg, former vice president Joe Biden, Vermont Sen Bernie Sanders, California Sen. Kamala Harris, New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, Colorado Sen. Michael Bennet and California Rep Eric Swalwell
Asked about the debate about whether Harris had misunderstood his views, a grinning Biden interrupted a selfie session with supporters to ask: & # 39; About which of the topics? & # 39;
& # 39; Yes, she translated it incorrectly, & # 39; he insisted, and rattled a legislative history of times in the Senate when he had defended the power of federal courts to step into desegregation fighting.
Meanwhile, Sanders used the debate to support his liberal health policy and to attack the president.
In exchange for a health care system & # 39; Medicare For All & # 39 ;, Sanders admitted that most Americans pay & # 39; more taxes & nbsp; but insisted that they spend less on health care once the dust was dissolved.
Sanders said that Americans would eventually demand a single-payer system by telling insurers and pharmaceutical manufacturers that their day is over, that health care is a human right and not something to make big profits out of.
He also launched one of the fiercest attacks against Trump of the night when he called the president a & # 39; fake & # 39 ;, a & # 39; pathological liar & # 39; and a & # 39; racist & # 39; on Thursday accused and said & # 39; he lied to the American people during his campaign & # 39; .
