The debate debate is one of the most important moments of the day and a big part of the reason why debates are so important to the country.
However, the debate has been slow moving.
The US Presidential debate, for instance, was held on August 9 and 10, and debates in the US had been held since January 2017.
Now, the debates are taking place on August 13, with the next one on August 15.
Here is a look at the debate speed-reading timeline.
October 15, 2020 – The US President begins his debate against Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders.
The debate takes place in the small town of Charleston, South Carolina.
The two candidates spar over trade and immigration issues.
October 19, 2020 – The debate begins.
In the US, there is no pre-debate debate.
The debate is broadcast live by the networks NBC and CBS.
During the debate, both candidates are asked questions and debate moderator Lester Holt questions each candidate individually.
“How would you deal with the opioid crisis?”
Holt asks each candidate, asking questions that span the range of political views and policies.
Bernie Sanders responds: “We have a lot of work to do.
I’m proud to say we have the most advanced and most compassionate system in the world.”
“I am going to make sure that we have a national conversation about how to end our opioid crisis, and I’m going to focus on jobs, economic growth, protecting our children, protecting seniors, making sure that our infrastructure is strong, protecting families, making childcare available, making college affordable, making it affordable for young people, and so much more.
Donald Trump responds: “We need to deal with drugs.
I’ve seen the evidence.
I have been very proud to be able to lead our country and fight for a compassionate system.
We’re going to be a great country and we are going to win a lot, I think, with compassion.”
October 26, 2020 – The debate ends.
Following the debate Holt asks a series of questions about the candidates.
On stage, both Democrats and Republicans are asked to share their views on some of the issues that were raised during the debate.
The questions focus on whether or not the candidates have policies or positions that align with their views.
Trump responds: “I think we have got to deal, frankly, with drugs, but we have to deal very much with terrorism.
I think we can have a real discussion about how we deal with terrorism.”
Hillary Clinton responds: The drugs have been out there for a long time, and we need to get a grip on it, and they’re a major cause of the problem.
Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush responds: You know, it is a big mistake to try to put a lot into drug use.
Clinton responds: I think it’s an issue that’s going to get much more attention.
Senator Ted Cruz responds: Drug use is a major problem, and it’s a big reason why our country is in the hole.
Jeb Bush responds to the first question: I will have a very strong stance on drug use because it’s going up exponentially and because of what we’ve been doing.
Cruz responds to a question about the opioid epidemic: I believe that we should have a much stronger enforcement effort.
Hillary responds to questions about her stance on the opioid issue: I believe we need a strong federal response to the opioid problem.
I will fight for strong enforcement and to expand health care to those who are most in need.
Sanders responds to another question about drug use: I know the debate is very important, but I want to make it clear that it’s not about me.
Drug use, whether it’s marijuana or other drugs, is a very real issue that is devastating people’s lives and that I will tackle in a very serious way.
After the debate the candidates are joined by moderator Lester Dickerson, and Holt.
Holt asks each of the candidates a series for a question.
He then asks each one to give a brief response.
One question: What’s your position on marijuana?
The other: We have been successful in reducing the number of people dying in the United States from opioids.
Another question: What are your views on the war on drugs?
Clinton replies: We have a problem.
We have an epidemic.
The war on terror is the biggest problem that we face.
We’ve had a tremendous amount of success fighting the war, but it is absolutely essential that we address the opioid and drug epidemic.
Bush responds to one question: How would you solve the opioid addiction crisis?
Trump: We need to have a strong national conversation.
I believe in the war against terrorism, we need people in uniform and in uniform, but not with the drugs.
Ted Cruz responds to two questions: Are you against the war in Afghanistan?
What are your plans to address the epidemic
