The second debate between two rival candidates, Donald Trump and Joe Biden, has been canceled before the US presidential election. The debate was scheduled to take place next Thursday (October 15). According to The Commission on Presidential Debates, the debate was called off because Trump refused to participate in the debate. However, the third debate will take place on schedule.
It was the day before the second debate between the two presidential candidates. However, after the first debate, Donald Trump was attacked by Corona. After three days in the hospital, he is now receiving treatment at the White House. Meanwhile, the commission on Thursday announced its decision to virtually hold a second debate. In an interview with Fox Business Channel the same day, Trump accused the commission of taking advantage of his rival Joe Biden. “I personally don’t want to waste time arguing,” he said. “I’m not involved in this virtual debate,” he said.
“It is clear that there will be no debate on October 15,” the commission said in a statement on Friday. CPD will pay full attention to the final debate to be held on 22 October. The statement said the debate would take place at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee, to follow other rules including adequate testing, mask use and social distance.
The final Trump-Biden debate will be divided into six parts of 15 minutes each. NBC News host Kristen Welker will announce the theme of each episode. Organizers said both candidates agreed to participate in the October 22 debate.
