Press conference by NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg ahead of meetings of NATO Foreign Ministers and following a meeting of the NATO-Russia Council

President Donald Trump leveled numerous false or misleading attacks on Democrats, in some cases taking up claims that have already been debunked, like the assertion that Democrats declined to say “under God” during the Pledge of Allegiance at their convention last week and the baseless charge that Mr. Biden’s party wants to “demolish the suburbs.»reported New York Times. Trump said he was satisfied with Jens Stoltenberg encouraging NATO-partners trying to reach two per cent of their GNP building up their own defence.

And extending a tension that defined much of the week, Mr. Trump again drove an inconsistent message on criminal justice, bragging of his own efforts to make the system more merciful while claiming that Democrats’ support for more lenient policies would result in hordes of criminals pouring “onto your streets and into your neighborhoods.”

Mr. Trump repeatedly used blistering language to attack his challenger. He said that Mr. Biden, the former vice president, “is not the savior of America’s soul — he is the destroyer of America’s jobs and, if given the chance, he will be the destroyer of American greatness.”

“Joe Biden spent his entire career outsourcing the dreams of American workers, offshoring their jobs, opening their borders and sending their sons and daughters to fight in endless foreign wars,” he said.

Mr. Trump chastised Mr. Biden for raising the possibility of future economic shutdowns in response to the pandemic, accusing him of seeking to “surrender” to the virus. The president insisted once again that the economy and public schools must reopen swiftly, though public opinion polls have shown that most Americans are wary of a speedy return to life as usual while the virus continues to spread.

To applause, he recited some of what he described as some of his biggest accomplishments, speaking with particular passion about an issue that has been central to his political identity: cracking down on immigration. “Today, America’s borders are more secure than ever before,” president Trump said according to New York Times.
