First presidential debate in Cleveland, Ohio

WASHINGTON (AP) — After more than a year of circling each other, Republican President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden met on the debate stage Tuesday night in Ohio. 

The 74-year-old president and the 77-year-old former vice president are similar in age, and they share a mutual dislike.

But they differ starkly in style and substance.
