The first presidential debate between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump kicked off in Atlanta Thursday night with a question from CNN moderator Jake Tapper on voters’ top issue— the economy.

Biden took the question first, saying he grew up in Scranton, Pennsylvania and grew up dealing with kitchen table issues like the cost of food and housing. “That’s why I’m working so hard to make sure I deal with those problems,” Biden said.

Trump responded by saying he had created “the greatest economy in the history of our country” until the COVID-19 pandemic disrupted it. Even then, Trump said the stock market was roaring by the time Biden tool over.

“He has not done a good job, he has done a poor job,” Trump said.
