Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Theblaze.com: “Debate recap: More presidential Trump hits Biden as 'corrupt,' 'all talk, no action' politician in final effort to turn election”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

In the last debate Thursday night before the Nov. 3 election, a much more reserved and presidential Donald Trump set out to label Democratic challenger Joe Biden as a corrupt, do-nothing politician in an appeal to the American people to grant him four more years.

During the debate in Nashville, Tennessee, moderated by NBC News' Kristen Welker, Trump routinely hit Biden for being "all talk, no action" and pressed him on why he didn't accomplish reforms while he was the vice president or in the Senate. At one point, he looked at Biden and said, "I ran because of you ... because I thought you did a poor job."

Biden weathered the attacks and shot back characterizing Trump as a president unfit for office and unable to handle the responsibility of leading a nation.

On the coronavirus: The first question of the night predictably was about the coronavirus pandemic, which Welker described as entering a "dangerous new phase."

Though usually a weak point for Trump, the president seemed to handle himself ably on the topic, even getting in a good dig on Biden regarding shutdowns, saying, "We can't lock ourselves up in a basement like Joe does." Biden espoused a grim tone on the topic, warning that America is heading into a "dark winter" and that, contrary to Trump's suggestion that Americans are "learning to live with" the virus, under Trump's leadership, they are actually "learning to die with it."
