The Final 2020 Presidential Debate
With eleven days to go, and early voting already in progress, the last presidential debate took place last night. The moderator, Kristen Welker, had more control of the debate, and to her credit, threw some hard balls to the former Vice President, however, there was little follow up when he deflected the questions and responded with unrelated answers.
Unfortunately, Joe Biden has a long history of embellishing the truth and even creating events that aren’t even close to being true. Why he wasn’t pressed into answering the allegations that continue to dodge him regarding Hunter Biden’s business deals is beyond comprehension. Voters have the right to know, if the man who looks right into the TV camera saying how you should trust his integrity, knowing how many times he stretched the truth in the past to serve his own agenda, what he knew and how involved he was with Hunter’s business arrangements, especially with Tony Bobulinsk pre-debate revelation.
President Trump consistently reminded viewers how he is looking out for America’s citizens. He has done more for the middle class, minority communities and those sent to prison under Joe Biden’s signature, draconian crime bill. Donald J. Trump is looking to get people back to work, has fast tracked COVID-19 remedies and a vaccine, is looking out for those employed in fracking and the oil industry, and will not rescind his tax cuts that let the working class keep more of their own money. As Thomas Sowell once said, “I have never understood why it is ‘greed’ to want to keep the money you’ve earned, but not greed to want to take somebody else’s money.”
The 2020 elections are trending toward record breaking numbers; it is my hope that people voting have all the facts. The debate last evening was helpful, but more certainly must be learned about what Tony Bobulinsk knows, before it is too late.

Lieutenant Colonel Lee Zeldin is a native of Suffolk County, who served his country in the US Army completing ROTC; Lt. Col. Zeldin served in different capacities, including as a Military Intelligence Officer, Prosecutor, and Military Magistrate.

He currently serves in the Army Reserve.
In 2008, Congressman Zeldin opened a successful law practice (he received his law degree from Albany Law School and was at the time the youngest attorney at age 23) in Smithtown, New York, which he operated full time until he was elected to the New York State Senate in 2010, representing New York’s 3rd Senate District. As a State Senator, Congressman Zeldin led the successful effort to repeal the MTA Payroll Tax for 80 percent of employers, a job killing tax that was hurting New York’s small businesses. He also created the PFC Joseph Dwyer Program, a peer to peer counseling program for veterans suffering from Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI); the program started in Suffolk County and quickly expanded across the state. After serving 4 years in the NYS Senate, Zeldin was elected to Congress in 2014 where he quickly became a leading advocate for Veterans and first responders and a strong voice for the quality of education, repairing our nation’s infrastructure, improving healthcare in America, and safeguarding our environment.
