The Commission on Presidential Debates on Friday announced the topics for the next presidential debate, which include race and fighting coronavirus.
“NEW: Kristen Welker, moderator of the Oct. 22 presidential debate at @BelmontUniv, has selected topics: Fighting COVID-19, American Families, Race in America, Climate Change, National Security, Leadership #Debates2020, according to the Twitter post.
The debate commission’s tweet comes after Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden and President Donald Trump’s competing town halls, which substituted for a canceled debate, Fox News reported. The commission canceled the debate after Trump said he wouldn’t participate after the organization announced that it would be virtual due to the president’s coronavirus infection.
Biden confirmed his attendance for the upcoming debate, but noted he thinks the president should get tested for the virus beforehand, Fox News reported. The debate is set for Thursday at 9 P.M. at Belmont University.
“It’s just decency,” Biden told ABC host George Stephanopoulos.
The Commission on Presidential Debates did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
