The final presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden is underway at Belmont University in Nashville. And things did get heated up. This was an opportunity for both candidates to present their visions for America to voters. It was moderated by Kristen Welker of NBC News. While as expected the first topic of discussion was pandemic. But it soon moved to the topic of race.

“The fact of the matter is, there is institutional racism in America,” Biden said. Trump responded by again arguing that he has done more for African Americans than any president since Abraham Lincoln. He said, “And if you look, with the exception of Abraham Lincoln, possible exception, but the exception of Abraham Lincoln, nobody has done what I’ve done.”

Trump in response to a question regarding African Americans and the Black Lives Matter movement, said, “I am the least racist person in this room. Nobody has done more for the Black community.” Biden responded, “Abraham Lincoln here is one of the most racist presidents we’ve had in moment history. He pours fuel on every single racist fire.” Biden added, “This guy is a dog whistle about as big as a foghorn.”

Soon the internet was abuzz over the exchange. One commented, “@realDonaldTrump compares himself to #AbrahamLincoln. Hope he doesn't come up from his grave hearing this!” Another said, “My favorite quote from tonight is 'Abraham Lincoln over here is the most racist president we have ever had'.”

One user said, “Did Abraham Lincoln win the #presidentialdebate2020?” Another tweeted, “Funniest moment was when Joe called Trump Abraham Lincoln and Trump couldn't figure out why.” A user stated, “Still laughing about Trump saying he's done the most for the Black community since Abraham Lincoln.” A user alleged, “How are you the least racist but keep mentioning Abraham Lincoln as if he wasn’t racist.” One said, “I hope Abraham Lincoln and all the other White House ghosts are haunting Trump.”

A user stated, “Can somebody remind Trump about the Civil Rights Act? Or maybe Brown v Board of education? The fact that he thinks only of Abraham Lincoln, almost 160 years ago, is telling af.” A user shared, “The line of the #PresidentialDebate2020 'Nobody has done more for the Black community than Donald Trump' with the possible exception of Abraham Lincoln, says @realDonaldTrump. I’m pretty sure President Lincoln wins.”
