Reactions from the 2020 Vice Presidential Debate


Vice President Mike Pence and Democratic challenger Kamala Harris traded barbs through plexiglass shields Wednesday night in a debate dominated by the coronavirus pandemic. Harris said President Donald Trump's handling of the pandemic, which has killed more than 210,000 Americans is “the greatest failure of any presidential administration." Pence said Trump has constantly put the American people first. The 21st digs into the vice presidential debate and took calls from listeners.
