Second Presidential Debate Officially Canceled After Trump Backs Out
President Trump won’t go head to head – face to face, anyway – as the second debate has been called off, which could be a win for your eyes and ears … if it were to be something like the first.
The Presidential Debates Commission on Friday ended the showdown scheduled for October 15 … after the President complained about the new virtual format and said he would not go. Of course, the CPD has moved on to virtual debate due to Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis.
His reaction to the change was, “I am not going to waste my time in a virtual debate. This is not the point of the debate.”
POTUS was also checked on being able to be muted by the moderator … a feature the CPD said they are considering in light of the constant interruptions and insulting during the first debate.
For what it’s worth, Biden’s team at the start approved new security protocols but after Trump hollowed out his heels … Biden pulled out as well. Instead, his team says he will be holding a town hall in Philly, hosted by ABC. George stephanopoulos.
Remember … the second debate was uncertain since Trump was diagnosed with coronavirus … in the same way more than a dozen White House staff. For now … a third and final debate is scheduled for October 22 … just 12 days before the election.
Our sincere thanks to
