The final presidential debate between Democratic nominee Joe Biden and President Donald Trump was a tame fare compared to the first one, but things got a little testy when the topic turned to the contentious topic of immigration.

When moderator Kristen Welker asked Trump about the recent reports that more than 500 children separated from their families at the border, the president defended the policy and began bragging about building a wall along the nation’s southern border. Welker asked Trump twice asked how his administration would reunite the kids with their families as the president repeatedly pointed to the cages in which the children were being held that he said were built under Barack Obama’s presidency in 2014.

In doing so, Trump parroted one of his familiar refrains that he can’t be held responsible for using cages for kids when they were built on Biden’s watch.

“Who built the cages, Joe? Trump repeated.

That led Welker to ask Biden how Americans can trust him on immigration.

“I’ll be president of the United States, not vice president of the United States,” Biden said, seemingly suggesting that he had nothing to do with Obama’s controversial immigration p[olcy that earned him the unfortunate nickname of Deporter in Chief.

That comment from Biden prompted an outpouring of tweets wondering if he just threw Obama under the bus one day after Obama campaigned on his behalf with arguably one of his strongest speeches ever.

This is a developing story that will be updated.
