The second presidential debate between President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden was canceled last week, but both candidates will still face off in dueling town hall events Thursday night.
President Trump will participate in a town hall from Miami with NBC News.
President Donald Trump will take part in an NBC News town hall event in Miami on Thursday, the network announced Wednesday, after Trump produced a Covid-19 test showing he is not contagious.
The town hall, moderated by "TODAY" anchor Savannah Guthrie, will take place on the same evening — and at the same time — that Joe Biden is doing his own town hall event in Philadelphia on ABC News at 8 p.m. ET.
During the one-hour town hall with Trump on Thursday, Guthrie will moderate a conversation between Trump and a group of Florida voters.
It will take place outdoors at the Pérez Art Museum in accordance with guidelines set forth by health officials and consistent with all government regulations.
Joe Biden will participate in a town hall with ABC News from Philadelphia.
Democratic presidential nominee and former vice president Joe Biden on Thursday, Oct. 15, allowing voters to ask questions to the former vice president less than a month before Election Day.
ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos will moderate the prime-time event in Philadelphia.
Biden's town hall was scheduled last week. President Trump's town hall was announced today. The left is losing thier minds over the conflict.
The decision by NBC News to run a Trump town hall directly opposite ABC's Biden town hall is indefensible.— Jeff Greenfield (@greenfield64) October 14, 2020
The cynicism of NBC execs, who gave us The Apprentice and thus this President, is stunning and shameful. ABC should call their bluff and move Biden so he talks after Trump. https://t.co/XSItenQNaz— Sue Halpern (@suehalpernVT) October 14, 2020
It's asinine that @nbc would allow @realDonaldTrump to dodge a direct debate with @JoeBiden and give him a platform at the same day and time, not allowing undecided voters to see the contrast between them in real-time. It's reckless and irresponsible.— John Pavlovitz (@johnpavlovitz) October 14, 2020
You know what? Boycott NBC.— Jennifer Hayden (@Scout_Finch) October 14, 2020
