After President Donald Trump asked him if he supports “law and order,” Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said he supports law “and a little bit of order.”
“Democrats,” Trump said, “don’t want to talk, like you, about law and order.”
“Are you in favor of law and order?” the president asked.
“I’m in favor of law, you following it, and a little bit of order,” Biden replied.
The remark garnered quite the reaction on social media:
Biden just said he believes in Law and a little bit of order…Riots and burnings are acceptable.. #PresidentialDebate

Joe is letting himself get played. What is law if you follow it and a little bit of order? pic.twitter.com/fgdCF3Q9EB

‘I’m in favor and a little bit of Order’ — man, as a guy who has family and friends with police ties, that’s insulting

Biden later tried to claim he does, in fact, support law and order.
He said he supports “law and order with justice, where people get treated fairly.”
