Joe Biden Tells Donald Trump To 'Shut Up' During US Presidential Debate

Donald Trump and Joe Biden's encounter during the first US Presidential debate was, predictably, anything but amicable - which came to a head as the Democrat candidate told his opponent to 'shut up'.

On the subject of leadership in the coronavirus pandemic, incumbent President Trump told the moderator - Fox News' Chris Wallace - that his administration has done a 'great job', and accused his Democratic rival of being unable to handle what has unfolded during 2020.

The United States continues to lead the world in both total coronavirus infections and deaths, with 7.27 million cases and 209,000 deaths.

The two candidates argued back and forth from the moment the debate began, with both people often speaking over each other and the moderator - Trump's interruptions in particular came thick and fast.

However, at one stage Biden seemed to get to breaking point as Trump once more butted in to his attempts to answer a question, and snapped at the President: "Will you shut up, man?"

The outburst prompted a massive flurry of messages on Twitter.

In an earlier answer, the Democratic nominee said to the President: "Keep yapping."

The debate covered the topics of the US Supreme Court Justice pick, the US economy, race and violence across the country, and the integrity of the election.
