A slightly strange moment came during Wednesday night's vice presidential debate between Vice President Mike Pence and vice presidential nominee Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.). 

Harris seemed at a loss when pressed by Pence about Biden wanting to repeal the Trump tax cuts. The economy was the focus at this juncture in the debate.

Pence had been talking about how the Biden campaign, if elected, would raise taxes on Americans, to which Harris stuck to her continuous tactic of calling the Trump administration a bunch of liars by saying that she thought "this was supposed to be a debate based on fact and truth." That's when Pence reminded Harris that her running mate would repeal the tax cuts.

"The important thing, you said, is the truth," Pence said after being reprimanded by Harris for interrupting. "Joe Biden said it twice in the debate last week that he's going to repeal the Trump tax cuts. That was tax cuts that gave the average working family $2,000 in a tax break every single year."

After a brief exchange in which Harris scolded Pence for speaking again, things calmed down and the debate resumed. Harris never answered whether a potential Biden administration would repeal the Trump tax cuts, only that Biden won't raise taxes on people making more than $400,000 a year.
