After getting cut off by US President Donald Trump repeatedly over the first 20 minutes of Monday night's debate, Democratic nominee Joe Biden finally had enough.

"Would you shut up, man?" Biden told Trump. Moderator Chris Wallace eventually had to move on to a new subject with 70 minutes to go, and Biden quipped that not much got done with all of the cross talk to start out.

"That was a really productive segment. Keep yappin', man," Biden said.

Minutes later, Biden told Trump to "just shush" after the president kept interjecting despite Wallace trying to keep things orderly.

The debate between Trump and Biden was a chaotic and tense hour and a half affair.

The two nominees went back and forth and clashed on a number of topics, including Republican efforts to fill Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg's Supreme Court seat before the election. 

Biden argued that it is undemocratic to vote in Trump's conservative nominee, Judge Amy Coney Barrett, during the election period. Biden called Trump the "worst president that America has ever had".
