The United States witnessed the first personal confrontation between the US presidential candidates, current President Joe Biden, and former President Donald Trump, in a debate organized by CNN, with the start of the countdown to the presidential elections, scheduled for November 5, 2024.

This is the first debate to be held without the organization of the Committee on Presidential Debates, which has been supervising these events since 1988. This is also the first debate in American history to bring together a current president and a former president.

The debate witnessed an exchange of accusations between the candidates, focusing on issues such as abortion, economic management, immigrants, in addition to the conflicts in Ukraine and Gaza.

The debate began without a handshake between the candidates, and was held in Atlanta, Georgia, which is expected to play an influential role in the elections. President Biden arrived in Atlanta with his wife, while Trump’s wife was absent.
