It’s now official: The debate between US presidential candidates Donald Trump and Joe Biden is canceled next week. So, the October 22 debate will be the last TV duel between the two.
The second election debate, normally scheduled for next Thursday, has been canceled. The organizing committee announced this on Friday.
After it became known that President Trump tested positive for the coronavirus, the committee had already turned the debate into a virtual meeting. However, that was refused by Trump. “That’s not a debate,” his campaign team said. “We’re fitting for this sad excuse to help Biden out of need.”
Trump then suggested moving the debate to October 29. But a TV duel so short before the election date itself (November 3), Biden refused. Therefore, the organizing committee has simply canceled the second debate on October 15. During that meeting, voters could ask questions to both candidates.
Another debate between the two candidates is scheduled for October 22, in Nashville. That will immediately be the last thing between the two candidates. Both seventies have already verbally crossed swords on September 29. That went very chaotic and bit.
Meanwhile, Trump himself is planning new campaign moments such as a speech in the White House itself on “law and order” today (Saturday) and a rally in Florida on Monday, although he could still be contagious. He avoids asking if he is now permanently virus-free.
