Donald Trump dismisses "virtual" presidential TV debate as “waste of time” – BBC News

There are conflicting signals about the likelihood of a second presidential debate between President Trump and his Democratic challenger Joe Biden.

The plan was to hold a virtual debate because of Mr Trump’s treatment for Covid, but the President has said that would be a waste of his time.

The two sides are now considering the possibility of delaying the event by a week, to allow a second face-to-face encounter.

The Vice-Presidential debate has taken place between Mike Pence and Kamala Harris.

Huw Edwards presents BBC News at Ten reporting by north America editor Jon Sopel.

    Glad that Trump realize what the Democrats did to him without consultation with him, they change the rules whenever they like. Trump doesn’t need to debate with Biden, this is insult to Trump! If Trump is good enough to go come that means he is good enough to debate in person! If they don’t like, Biden can debate to himself! Dems. cannot change the rule whatever they like or whenever they want; sorry don’t work that way! Don’t try to bully Republicans all the time!

    Tesla could sell much again in september without normally one month less deliveries but succesfull Ford Kuga hybrid could likely not deliver more also for gettng high subsidy before pot out limited to 2 billion € 2020-2025 means about 6600 • 5000€/month for e-cars and plugin hybrids in Q4 with ID 4, Golf and Tiguan GTE awaited more in numbers than Passat GTE already Nr. 1 hybrid
    Tesla Nr 2 VW ID 3 Nr 3 but still much e-golf and e-up in norway ID 3 Nr 1 also the taycan buyed.
    600mio. € set already for subsidies likely limited also annually until 2025 2 billion €.

    How to sell 500 000cars/a in EU if tesla gigafab is finished 2021 ?
    Giga means less VW planning 900 000-1.5mio. VW ID cars.

    All together about 3.3 mio. new cars/a in BRD in world 100mio.

    Joe is getting weak. The tour stops are too much for him. This is why The Commission on Presidential Debates announced on Thursday that next week’s presidential debate will be held virtually.

    Lets be honest all of those wanting to make the debates virtual are all biased Democrats for Democrats who want this country to be a Socialist country. This is a rigged debate.

    Joe Biden – " I don't know what I'll do " Yes no policy Joe, we know… You never know what to do because you are the real clown puppet.

    Besides, anyone who has been on a zoom meeting can appreciate why Trump doesn’t want a virtual debate.

    …that's an interesting perspective by the President, considering his entire last 4 yrs on office have been a waste of everyone's time.

    There's nothing sleepy Joe would like better than to be reading his teleprompter and receiving messages in his earpiece. The President is absolutely right for rejecting this ridiculous idea.

    Trump is afraid of the next debate because it's a town hall where average Americans will be asking the questions.

    What's wrong with a virtual debate? Even international conferences are held virtually during the pandemic. Trump is both anti-science and outdated. He is also very evil. He wants to drag everybody to graves.

    Crooks get involved in politics. No empathy for the poor… just taking advantage of them. This is a sad time in history…so sorry to see that people had to die because of these fools. Politicians are all worthless..too much money on top and nothing at the bottom. Pathetic.

    All three debate moderators are left supporters, the left keeps changing the rules, there's photographic and video evidence "i don't want my kids going to JUNGLE schools " Biden was wearing a wire and cheating in the last debate, Bidens side literally refuse Trumps teams request both sides be checked for communication devices during the debate … The evidence is stacked so high against the Democrats cheat including ballot harvesting being caught on camera by Project Veratas, that Trump is well within his right to refuse them anymore opportunities to CHEAT during this election.
