Washington, D.C.— Following tonight’s final debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden, People For the American Way President Ben Jealous released the following statement:
“If there was any doubt left about Donald Trump’s unfitness for office, he removed it with his whining and dishonest performance tonight — including his deeply offensive remark suggesting migrants have ‘low IQs.’ Kudos to Joe Biden and to moderator Kristen Welker for showing respect for the American people in the way they addressed the issues that really matter in this election, like health care, the pandemic, and our national reckoning with racial inequity. Biden was the clear winner tonight on the issues and demonstrated his integrity, honesty and commitment to our democracy. The only thing that remains is for us to get out and vote for Biden and Kamala Harris, and take the first step toward healing our country after four disastrous years of the Trump administration.”
