Joe Biden jabs Donald Trump for comparing himself to Abraham Lincoln during debate exchange

The final presidential debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden on Thursday night created quite a buzz. The special thing which is the highlight of the debate is the mention of Abraham Lincoln's name. It became one of the most memorable exchanges in  As the debate turned to a discussion of the Black Lives Matter movement. Biden take a dig at Trump for his earlier boast that no president since Lincoln has helped Black people more than he has.

During the debate, Biden said, "Abraham Lincoln here is one of the most racist presidents we've had in modern history,” Biden said of Trump. “He pours fuel on every single racist fire. Every single one. Responding it Trump said,  "He made a reference to Abraham Lincoln, where did that come in? "You said you're Abraham Lincoln," Biden responded. "No, no. ... I didn't say 'I'm Abraham Lincoln.'" Trump said. "I said, 'Not since Abraham Lincoln has anybody done what I've done for the Black community.'"

Let us tell you that Trump has a history of comparing himself to Lincoln, the country's 16th president. His remark during debate echoed ones he made earlier this year, when he said he had done more for the Black community than any president, before adding, "Let's take a pass on Abraham Lincoln." Last year, Trump claimed no other president had been treated as badly by the press as he has, including Lincoln.  In 2017 also  Trump said that that he can be more presidential than anyone else who has been president, “with the exception of the late, great, Abraham Lincoln.”
