Second debate canceled as Trump refused virtual event

Среда, 14 Окт, 2020

The widely anticipated announcement comes after Trump, who tested positive for COVID-19 on October 1 and is expected to resume campaigning as of Saturday, rejected the option of holding a virtual debate.

Biden said Trump will be the first president in modern American history to "leave office with fewer jobs than when it began". And they did exactly that when ABC News announced, later in the day, that they would be hosting a town hall with the former vice president.

On Sunday, Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield in a TV interview declined to be more definitive, saying, "I am not going to play Donald Trump's game". However, Donald Trump seems to have a problem with the online format.

This announcement was made after President Donald Trump tested positive coronavirus, and numerous viewers on sets came without a mask.

Mr Trump says he's seeing another series of polls that show he's fine and that he feels the momentum behind him is even greater this time than it was four years ago. Dr. Sean Connelly has authorized him to travel, the committee must take the discussion to a personal location. This will consist of a temperature check and a brief questionnaire, according to a source familiar with the preparations. "Both candidates have agreed to participate in the October 22 debate", the commission noted. Now the eyes will be on the third presidential debate that is all set to take place on October 22. His campaign on Friday called the CPD "biased", accusing it of "protecting Biden and preventing voters from hearing from the two candidates for president".

Commissioner Newton Minow, sometimes referred to as the father of television debates, told the New York Times: "In seven decades of presidential televised debates, this is the first to be canceled".

The Republican, who is trailing Biden in national polls, is reportedly scheduled to hold an in-person event at the White House on Saturday.

Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance wants the returns, which cover 2011 to 2018, as part of an investigation into Trump's business affairs.

That's because NBC will simulate Trump's City Hall on its MSNBC and CNBC cable properties, just as it aired its October 5th event with Biden.

"The Cleveland Clinic would have to clear it", Fahrenkopf said.

Suburban women favor Biden by a wide margin, 62% to 34%, while suburban men back Trump by 54% to 43%, the poll showed.

Trump's support has declined in suburbs across OH this year, notably in and around Cincinnati, according to surveys by Republican legislative strategists, worrying them about whether Trump's plan to turn out more voters than 2016 in the rural parts of the state can compensate for the losses. "It doesn't look good unless the Biden campaign changes their mind". Last week he said: "They'll know my opinion on court packing when the election's over". "I don't think there is any movement on either side that will make Miami happen".
