When asked about these policies and the children who have been separated, Trump said, "Yes, we are going to unite them."

However, Biden was not convinced with the answer and calling these policies "criminal", Biden slammed Trump administration's actions and said, "People were ripped from their arms and separated and those children have nowhere to go and it's criminal."

When the moderator asked "Do you understand why black parent's give their children 'the talk?", Trump stressed about how "Nobody's done more for black Americans than Donald Trump."

"We now have as strong of a border as we've ever had," Trump boasted, with Biden still in disagreement about the tough and inhumane immigration policies.
