Trump: NBC's Guthrie was 'going crazy'

Thursday night's town hall events replaced a presidential debate that was canceled after Trump's bout with coronavirus.

A combative Trump, sparring with moderator Savannah Guthrie on NBC, refused to condemn the bizarre conspiracy theory QAnon, reiterated his unsubstantiated assertion that the 2020 election was rife with fraud and questioned whether masks help fight the spread of COVID-19.

Biden delivered policy-heavy answers and focused his attacks on Trump's handling of the pandemic, which has killed 216,000 people in the United States and hammered the economy.

Biden won the TV ratings battle between the two events, according to Nielsen ratings data reported by CNN on Friday.
