By Fox News. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign launched a Twitter account for the purpose of fact-checking President Trump ahead of the first of three debates between the two contenders.
The Biden campaign launched the account, @Truth, in partnership with the Democratic National Committee. The account will share updates in real time based on topics discussed during the debates.

“The American people deserve to remember what it’s like to have a president who tells the truth again,” Biden campaign spokesman Andrew Bates said in a statement.
In its first tweet, the account shared a clip of Biden responding to a question from a reporter who asked what he could have to accomplish in order to have a successful debate performance. In response, Biden said he would “just tell the truth.” (Read more from “Biden Campaign to Fact-Check Trump With New Twitter Account During Debate” HERE)
Biden and Trump Prepare for a Debate That Could Turn Personal
By CNN. Inside the map room of the White House, a small group of advisers sat around a table and peppered the President with accusations and criticisms about everything from lying to incompetence. The team, led by former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, was getting Donald Trump prepared for the onslaught they expect from Joe Biden on the debate stage Tuesday night.
About 100 miles north in Wilmington, Delaware, a similar scene played out with Biden and his team, led by longtime Biden aide and debate expert Ron Klain. Biden’s prep has been more traditional — putting on mock debates with veteran Democratic attorney Bob Bauer playing the role of Trump in at least one session.
For two very different men with polar opposite temperaments and divergent governing philosophies, their debate objectives have some fundamental things in common: Put their opponent on the defense and make it as much a referendum on the other as possible. In conversations with multiple sources familiar with both candidates’ prep, each is practicing ways to get under the other’s skin, while also avoiding blowing up and going off script if the debate turns personal.
Advisers to both candidates are expecting one of the night’s biggest flash points to be about each man’s children. (Read more from “Biden and Trump Prepare for a Debate That Could Turn Personal” HERE)
