Will President Trump participate in another debate next week? | States of America

The Commission on Presidential Debates announced on Thursday their decision to move the second Presidential Debate, between Joe Biden and Donald Trump, to a virtual town hall format due to Donald Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis and continuing convalescence. But moments after the press release went out, Donald Trump did an interview on Fox Business saying that he would not take part if the debate became a virtual event.

What did we learn from the Vice Presidential Debate? California Senator Kamala Harris and Vice President Mike Pence took the stage on Wednesday for a more substantive discussion on many issues, but there were still some interruptions in the process. USA TODAY’s own Susan Page moderated the debate, and we hear a little bit from her about her attempts to crack down but keep the conversation focused on what voters are interested in.

    I will say he won't participate. He would rather be at his own rally where he knows everyone in a crowed worships him and blindly believes everything he says rather than face a town hall debate where people will ask him tough questions he doesn't want to answer.

    It's best Trump doesn't participate. Listening to him scream at debates is rather disconcerting. You never know when he's lying anyway.

    He should base that rally on the fact that it is INSTEAD of the debate which Biden opted out of because he lost last time.
    The president should say that this is that debate without biden who has defaulted it. And he should expose biden without any loopholes this time, also because many dems will be watching this time!

    It was stupid for the commission to announce changes to the debate set up without first consulting with the campaigns. Nobody wants a virtual debate.

    Trump needs to yell and scream and interrupt. If hes not there edits virtual that he has no way to interrupt.

    Kamala not only lies, also use her gender to be nasty, this is a odd form to be authoritarian. Beware of populism

    Biden got quite scared, little concerned, much worried, and fully terrified because of Trump's wit, so He's put forward this virtual debate.😆
