Former Vice President Joe Biden said at a town hall Thursday night that President Donald Trump’s policies have put Iran closer to obtaining a nuclear weapon. The two candidates continue to argue over Middle East policy as the Nov. 3 election nears.

Biden, who is the Democratic Party presidential nominee, mostly spoke about domestic issues at the event hosted by ABC’s George Stephanopoulos. The US election is dominated by talk on the COVID-19 pandemic, the economy, police and race issues and other domestic concerns.
