Trump, Biden To Face off in Final Round of Presidential Debates

U.S. President Donald Trump and his Democratic rival Joe Biden are to face off on Thursday for the final round of presidential debates ahead of the Nov. 3 Election Day.

The final debate will begin at 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time in Nashville (Tennessee) and can cover six topics — combating COVID-19, U.S. households, race within the U.S. climate change, nationwide security, and leadership. NBC journalist Kristen Weaker would be the moderator.

The U.S. Commission on Presidential Debates on Monday introduced a brand new rule round muting the microphones of Trump and Biden to offer them every two uninterrupted minutes originally of each debate section within the upcoming closing presidential debate.


“Each campaigns this week once more reaffirmed their settlement to the two-minute, uninterrupted rule,” the commission mentioned in an announcement.

“For the stability of every section, which by design is meant to be devoted to open dialogue, each candidates’ microphones shall be open,” it added.

The first presidential debate, held on Sept. 29, descended into chaos after heated exchanges and personal attacks bulldozed the 90-minute-plus debate between the two candidates.

Former U.S. President Barack Obama on Wednesday hit the campaign trail for his former vice president Biden, saying that the nation “cannot afford” one other four years of Trump within the White House and blasted Trump’s dealing with of the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The pandemic would have been robust for any president; we have not seen something like this for 100 years … However the diploma of incompetence and misinformation, the quantity of people that won’t have died had we simply completed the fundamentals,” Obama mentioned at a roundtable with black group organizers in Philadelphia in the battleground state of Pennsylvania.

Obama additionally warned that Democrats should vote in record numbers to make it possible for Biden wins a decisive victory. “We have to prove like by no means earlier than… We can’t go away any doubt on this election. We cannot have any doubt.”

Pennsylvania is extensively seen as a pivotal swing state that might show decisive in figuring out the election’s outcome. And in line with the RealClearPolitics website, Biden has a 7.9 level lead over Trump in an average of national polls.

Trump and Biden have been initially scheduled to face off on Oct. 16 in Miami on the now-canceled second presidential debate. The commission determined to stage the event nearly after Trump examined optimistic for COVID-19 on Oct. 1, however rejected the arrangement.
