The Commission on Presidential Debates has announced the issues for the final presidential debate between President Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, which will take place next Thursday in Nashville, Tennessee.
The discussion will begin at 9:00 pm ET and will last 90 minutes without a business break.
There are six topics:
- “Fight Kovid-19”
- “American Families”
- “Race in America”
- “Climate change”
- “National Security”
The format is similar to the first discussion: each segment will last about 15 minutes, and candidates will have two minutes to answer after NBC’s Kristen Welker, moderator, will open each section with a question. Welker will then use the rest of the time in the segment to discuss the issue further.
In Friday’s announcement, the commission did not elaborate on any changes to the rules for the final contest, saying something like the first discussion between the presidential candidates had turned into a matter of chaos with the president and would violate the rules and repeatedly disrupt the former vice president. .
Remember: Trump and Biden were scheduled to discuss last Thursday, but the discussion was canceled after Trump refused to participate in the virtual discussion. The commission turned the constitution into a virtual debate earlier this month following a positive coronavirus diagnosis from the president, which led to him being hospitalized for three days.
Both candidates instead attended the town hall which was to be debated at night. Biden appeared on ABC for an hour and a half townhall, and Trump appeared on NBC for an hour-long townhall.
