After we wrapped our heads around the first presidential debate on Septemebr 29, Democrat’s presidential candidate Joe Biden took to Twitter to tell voters and followers what they must take home from the much publicized debate. Biden tweeted on September 30, a day after the debate, saying that the event strengthened his resolve to fight in elections. He tweeted, “Last night reinforced why I got into this race: We are in a battle for the soul of this nation — and it’s a battle we must win.” 



Reading his cry to rally, people on the Internet started to slam Biden alleging that he could not even answer questions on law and order and court-packing properly. Others wanted more policies supporting the working class and wanted to hear from him on that. In the US Presidential debate, Biden and Trump disagreed on Judge Amy Coney Barrett’s Supreme Court nomination to SCOTUS. While POTUS argued that he had every right to choose a replacement for late Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Biden claimed that Trump’s nominee would end health coverage for millions of Americans.
Both Trump and Biden differed on the matter of law and order and social unrest in American cities due to racial injustices in the debate.Trump alleged, “During the Obama-Biden administration, there was tremendous division.” He asked Biden, “You still haven’t mentioned, are you in favor of law and order?”

To this Biden replied in affirmative, “Law and order with justice where people get treated fairly. And the fact of the matter is violent crime went down 17%, 15% percent in our administration. It’s gone up on his watch.” Further moderator Chris Wallace also asked Biden about law and order, policies related to Black Lives Matter and control of policing. To this Biden replied, “Look, what I support is the police having the opportunity to deal with the problems they face. And I'm not totally opposed to defending the police officers. Matter of fact, police, local police, they only want defunding in his budget calls for a $400 million cut in local law enforcement assistance. They need more assistance. They need when they show up for a 911 call to have someone with him as a psychologist or psychiatrist to keep them from having to use force and be able to talk people down.”

On the question of why the voters must support him and not the opponent candidate, Biden said it was about 'defending the constitution', “It's about equity and equality. It’s about decency. It's about the Constitution. And we have never walked away from trying to quite require equity for everyone, equality for the whole America. But we've never accomplished it, but we've never walked away from it like he has done.” He then cited examples of victims of racial injustice and police brutality and how Trump ignores such issues. 
After Biden’s comments on law and order and constitution from the debate and recent tweet on saving the “soul of this nation”, the Internet was not pleased. People alleged on Twitter that he had not answered questions sufficiently well on these matters in the debate. Legal advisor Jenna Ellis wrote, “The soul of this nation is our Constitution and rule of law. You wouldn’t even answer questions about court-packing and law & order. You want to DESTROY this nation. Note—your tweet doesn’t say you want to save America’s system. YOU DON’T.” 



Another user wrote on policies for the working class, “How about a battle about POLICIES THAT WILL HELP THE WORKING CLASS AND SAVE THE PLANET!” Some went as far as writing, “Polite corruption and war crimes instead of whatever Trump's doing.” A user bashed Biden for being passive, “I don’t hate you. I’m not political. But I can’t vote for you. I’m afraid you’re too passive about how our country is crumbling and why. Our structure is good not great. Let’s improve upon it... not tear it down.” 







Another lashed at Biden, “You can't win a war of words, let alone a battle for the soul of the nation. Difficult things don't get changed because you can't do it with the circumstances at the time.” A user bashed Biden as being greedy for power. “Sounded like you want power. “I am the Democratic Party” right joe.” Some came in support of Biden though and wrote, “Bravo Mr. Biden!!! Bravo! Godspeed to you and Ms. Harris and the entire campaign team. America's democracy and our freedoms depend on you! Dios lo bendiga!”
