U.S. President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden participate in their first 2020 presidential campaign debate in Cleveland. (Reuters)Democratic presidential challenger Joe Biden called Republican incumbent Donald Trump a “clown” on Tuesday as tension boiled over in the pair’s first televised debate ahead of the November election.

“It’s hard to get any word in with this clown -- excuse me, this person,” said Biden, moments after Trump was warned by moderator Chris Wallace not to interrupt.
President Trump and former VP Biden also traded barbs about each other’s relatives.

While Biden was making a point during the first presidential debate in Cleveland about the Trump administration’s trade deals with China not having the desired effect, Trump jumped in. He resurrected past claims about the former vice president’s son Hunter working overseas.

Trump said Hunter Biden reaped millions in ill-gotten profit from China and other overseas interests, accusations that have been repeatedly debunked. Biden shot back, “None of that is true.” He then added of Trump, “His family, we could talk all night.”
