The first US presidential debate of the 2020 campaign, which took place week, made the usage of a particular word quite viral as Joe Biden used the term ‘Inshallah’, when the American public would get to see his long-anticipated tax returns.
There were quite a few opinions around the word, while some might have taken offense others found humor in the statement.
With a mixture of sentiments from the listeners, below are some tweets on the comment made by Joe Biden.
It's so disheartening that the best thing the Biden campaign seems to be able to offer Muslim Americans in the midst of an uptick in islamophobic violence is an offhand, completely inappropriately applied "inshallah" in the debate.

The phrase's original spiritual purpose is for when people try to fulfill their goal, there could be God-like circumstances that may get in the way. Hence, many believed that the phrase must be used in the correct sentiment without it loosing its purpose.
The debate is divided into parts: the records of the two presidential candidates; the Supreme Court; the pandemic; the economy; election integrity; and "race and violence” all of which is swept across the US cities.
