The Sky News host noted Joe Biden had also failed to be accurate when going head to head against President Donald Trump during the first presidential debate in Cleveland. Kay Burley pointed out the former vice-president would need to ensure he remains precise when facing off his opponent. She said: “He wasn’t always accurate with his case as well.

“When he was criticising the president he needs to be accurate and he wasn’t.

“He said that manufacturing had gone into a hole as a result of President Trump. Before of COVID, in fact, the President added nearly half a million jobs.”

Moe Vela, who worked in both the Clinton and Obama Administrations, however said Ms Burley’s facts were also not precise, saying: “Actually, CNN was fact-checking that this evening and I’m not sure that’s factually correct either.

“I’m not suggesting the vice-president was exactly right.”

Mr Vela proceeded to have a go at President Trump over his failure to condemn white supremacists and militias heightening tensions during the widespread anti-racism protests that have taken part across the US since May.

But Ms Burley cut him short: “You are here to talk to me about the guy who would be president.

“We saw that he was certainly tetchy, I’m putting to you that he wasn’t always accurate with his facts, your man.

“He also said that drug prices had increased. In fact, prescription drug prices have fallen under this president.”

Mr Vela hit back: “I don’t know about the exact figures to be honest.

“But I will tell you, anecdotally, that drug prices I pay for my medications have not increased nor decreases.

“If you want to get into numbers, bring a number cruncher on. I’m here to talk about the fact that Joe Biden showed the United States, and the world, there’s hope again we will get our country back.

“That we will save our democracy, that we still believe in equality and inclusion and respect.”
