President Trump panned Sunday evening’s Democratic presidential debate between Joe Biden and Sen. Bernie Sanders, declaring it “VERY boring.”
“I must say, that was a VERY boring debate,” Trump posted on Twitter after the debate.
He also accused the former vice president of lying about him wanting to cut Social Security and Medicare.
“That’s what they ALL said 4 years ago, and nothing happened, in fact, I saved Social Security and Medicare. I will not be cutting, but they will. Be careful!” he added.
The debate was the first in which just Biden and Sanders were on stage without any other presidential hopefuls after the field narrowed following the primary elections earlier this month.
The contest also took place without a live studio audience.
It had initially been scheduled for Arizona but was moved to Washington, DC, to cut down on travel for the campaigns and to protect potential audience members from spreading the coronavirus.
The outbreak dominated much of the contest as both candidates criticized Trump for his handling of the crisis, including failing to release enough testing kits to hospitals and health-care centers.
The debate came days before voters go to the polls in four states — Arizona, Florida, Illinois and Ohio — on Tuesday.
Biden leads Sanders by more than 150 delegates with 577 delegates up for grabs Tuesday.
