We verify live the last presidential debate


The T Verifica team reviews the true and false statements from the latest debate between candidates Donald Trump and Joe Biden.

By Andrea López and Ronny Rojas

The president, Donald Trump, and the Democratic candidate, Joe Biden, face tonight in the last debate of the race for the presidency. 

His claims are being analyzed live by T Verifica, the data verification platform of Noticias Telemundo, with the support of the PolitiFact organization.

[We verify what Trump and Biden said in their simultaneous forums]

Here are the most important checks of the night: 

  • FALSE.

    Biden "will destroy protections for pre-existing conditions"

During the political campaign we have verified numerous false claims of the candidates, with the help of the Politifact organization.

One of them, from President Trump, points out that Biden seeks to end these protections.

This is not true.

Biden says he supports and defends Obamacare, or the Affordable Care Act (ACA), the law enacted by former President Barack Obama that created strict protections for people with pre-existing conditions.

In fact, Trump is the one who wants to abolish the law and, although he issued an executive order without major effects on which those protections were supported, the president has not proposed a replacement that will keep them intact.

This data verification was carried out by T Verifica thanks to the FactChat agreement, coordinated by the 

International Fact-Checking Network (IFCN)

 with the support of WhatsApp.

The objective of the project is to bring better information in Spanish during the US presidential elections in 2020. This and other political checks can be received directly by WhatsApp
