LA PAZ, Sept. 27 (Xinhua) — Bolivian President Evo Morales on Tuesday called the TV debate between U.S. presidential candidates "only a show" and said the November elections would not affect Bolivia-U.S. ties.

"Whoever wins doesn't change anything for me, the elected presidents do not govern, the bankers and businessmen govern. The debates are just a show for someone to get more votes," Morales said during a public appearance in the city of Santa Cruz.

Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump faced off for the first time on Monday night in the chaotic 2016 election cycle, bombarding each other with critical remarks and even insults.

Morales repeatedly lashed out at the "double morality" of the United States in issues related to democracy and human rights, referring to the wealthy dominating American politics and the country pursuing wars which kill thousands.

"The United States only has one policy, that is intervention. This will not change with presidents and governments," he said.
