Trump is not pleased with the selections while Biden has called for live fact-checking in a crawler during the debates.
🚨 @JoeBiden says he’d like a real-time fact-checking service broadcast during the debates due to the volume of Trump’s lies: “I’d love to have a crawler across the screen, a fact-checker.”
