US president Donald Trump mocked former Vice President Joe Biden after he turned directly to the camera to address American families during the final presidential debate.
"Just a typical politician when I see that," Trump said. "I'm not a typical politician — that's why I got elected."
Biden pivoted to address viewers at home during debate segment about national security that had shifted into a discussion about the president's taxes and Biden's son Hunter's business dealings.
"There's a reason he's bringing up all of this malarkey," Biden said. "He does not want to talk about the substantive issues. It's not about his family and my family. It's about your family and your family is hurting badly."
Biden: â€œThis isnâ€™t about my family or his family. Itâ€™s about your family â€¦ if youâ€™re a middle class family, your family is hurting badly.â€
Trump: â€œThatâ€™s a typical political statement. Letâ€™s get off this China thing â€¦ Iâ€™m not a typical politician.â€ https://t.co/HR9MFfjFDv pic.twitter.com/ei0DctO7BJ — ABC News (@ABC) October 23, 2020
