Nine days before Election Day, President Trump and Joseph R Biden Jr offered radically divergent visions for the country – including the coronavirus pandemic, the economy, and foreign policy ???? in high-profile 60-minute interviewsâ € ”

Mr. Trump was combative and irritable during his interview with the â ???? 60 Minutesâ ???? correspondent Lesley Stahl, insisting, as he has done on several occasions in recent days despite the surge in coronavirus cases, that the country is ‘turning the corner’ on the pandemic
– We did a very, very good job, â ???? he said at one point, mistakenly claiming that the increase in cases was due to the fact that we are doing so much testing…
Speaking at a time when family, business and government finances have been strained by the pandemic, the president also painted an optimistic picture of the country’s economy, which he said was already booming ???? In a hurry to clarify his top national priority, Mr. Trump replied it was to ‘get back to normal’ and â ???? have the economic rage and be awesome with the jobs and everyone be happy…
But perhaps the biggest headline that comes out of his interview is his demeanor.As he grew increasingly irritated by the interrogation, he interrupted his interview with Ms Stahl, then taunted her on Twitter, and posted a 38-minute excerpt from the interview on Facebook
– Watch the prejudice, hatred and rudeness from 60 Minutes and CBS, – Mr. Trump tweeted Thursday with a link to the clip

As he has done before, he also rejected M’s suggestion Trump and the Republicans that he was a « Trojan horse » for the left wing of the Democratic Party
– M President You Are Running Against Joe Biden Joe Biden has a deep, stiff, and successful record over a very long period of time, â € “ he said
In response to a question whether M Trump could still win the election, M Biden said he could
– It’s not over until the bell rings, – he said saying M Trump could win because of the way he plays ???? Mr. Trump, he added, is trying to somehow delegitimize the election in a way that is – designed to get people to question whether or not they should – whether it’s worth going to voteâ ????
Mister Biden’s newest response was about the Supreme Court He was asked if he would increase the number of justices of the country’s highest court if elected a question he has faced on several occasions since the death of Judge Ruth Bader Ginsburg last month Mr Biden gave his clearest answer in a matter of weeks, saying he would create a bipartisan commission of academics to study a possible overhaul of the justice system
– I will ask them, for 180 days, to come back to me with recommendations on how to reform the justice system, because it is going out of order, â ???? m Biden said
For – 60 minutes, – the episode continued its tradition of interviewing the top U.S. presidential candidates ahead of the presidential election It also featured interviews with Vice President Mike Pence, who is Mr. Trump’s running mate and Senator Kamala Harris, M Biden’s running mate
The interviews aired on a day when candidates had very different schedules, reflecting their different approaches to campaigning during the pandemic
