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.”

The moment came during the first presidential debate Tuesday in Cleveland, Ohio.

“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.

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.”
