During the debate, US President Donald Trump criticized his rival in the upcoming elections, Joe Biden, for the fact that he, as vice president in 2014, could not prevent the annexation of Crimea to Russia.
“It was under him that Russia took part in Ukraine for itself,” Trump recalled at the televised debate.
The US President noted that he supplied Ukraine with weapons, while the previous administration “sold her pillows.” Speaking about the confrontation with Russia, Trump stressed that he imposed sanctions against it and strengthened NATO’s military capabilities.
Biden, during the words of his opponent, showed by his appearance that he did not agree with Trump’s arguments. Speaking about Russia, he suggested that Trump did not even discuss with the Russian leadership the inadmissibility of foreign interference in the American elections.
According to Trump, he was forced to become president because ex-President Barack Obama and Biden did not work well.
“I was running for president then because you and Obama did not work well,” he told Biden during a televised debate.
Biden called on Americans on election day to compare his characters and reputation with Trump, and only then make a choice.
Trump, developing the idea of Biden’s reputation, once again accused him of receiving money from other states, including from Russia. Biden assured that he never received money from representatives of other countries.
In the American Nashville on Friday night, the final debate of the candidates for the presidency of the United States was held. Both Trump and Biden have expressed confidence that Russia is opposed to their election victory. Also, the candidates, among other things, accused each other of receiving funds from abroad.
Russia annexed Crimea in 2014 following a referendum on the peninsula. Ukraine does not recognize its results and considers Crimea to be its temporarily occupied territory.
In 2009-2017. Biden served as vice president of the United States during the administration of the 44th American President Barack Obama.
