Trump says a Fox report about people on the terror watchlist crossing the border is "beautiful" from his standpoint
Baier asks Trump about revelations he received money from foreign governments while in office and asks him if he will divest from his businesses during a second term. Trump dodges the question, which means no, and does a promo for his private clubs.

Biden tells Lester Holt he had cordial conversation with Trump and told him he was praying for him
HOLT: What can you and will you do to lower down the temperature?

BIDEN: Continue to talk about the things that matter to the American public. It matters whether you accept the outcome of elections.
Biden: "When you say there's nothing wrong w/going to the Capitol, breaking in, threatening people, a couple cops dying, putting up a noose & gallows for the former VP, & then you say you're gonna forgive people for that, you're gonna pardon them?...violence is never appropriate"
