US Final Presidential Debate: When Donald Trump called India filthy
US President Donald Trump and Joe Biden clashed over the issue of climate change during the final presidential debate. Defending his decision to withdraw from the Paris accord, Trump said that it would have made the US a non-competitive nation. Look at China, how filthy it is. Look at Russia. Look at India. The air is filthy. I walked out of the Paris Accord as we had to take out trillions of dollars and we were treated very unfairly,’ Trump said during the debate. Joe Biden argued that tackling climate change is among the most important moral obligations of contemporary leaders and added that another term of Trump’s presidency would do more harm to the battle against climate change. Trump’s remarks come days before Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Defense Secretary Mark Esper visit New Delhi for talks on building the growing US-India partnership. Trump had also been critical of India’s data on Covid cases in the first US presidential debate. Watch the full video for more details.
