Debate Takeaways: An acrid tone from the opening minute
By BILL BARROW and ZEKE MILLER Associated Press
WASHINGTON (AP) — Republican President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden met on the debate stage for the first time Tuesday night in Ohio. Their mutual dislike was evident from the outset. Trump wasted no time going on offense, and his pugilistic approach left Biden fighting to complete a sentence. But Biden came with a few retorts of his own. For voters still undecided about who would better handle the multiple crises that have beset the nation, the debate may not have offered anything new. There is little doubt that it was the most acrimonious debate since they have been televised.
