President Donald Trump and Joe Biden take part in the first presidential debate at Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic in Ohio, on Sept. 29, 2020.

Trump talked constantly through the 90-minute debate, sometimes incoherently and other times rattling off unfounded and baseless attacks against Democrat Joe Biden while refusing to let the moderator even ask questions.

Pressed repeatedly, Trump refused to condemn extremist supporters or urge them to stay peaceful in the event of a disputed election while once again suggesting, without evidence, that it might be "rigged."
