The Presidential Debate Committee has unveiled the final presidential debate between President Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, which will take place next Thursday in Nashville, Tennessee.
The debate will start at 21:00 European time and will last 90 minutes without commercial breaks.
- “Fighting COVID-19”
- “American Families”
- “Racing in America”
- “Climate change”
- “National security”
The format is the same as the first debate: each segment will last about 15 minutes, and candidates will have two minutes to answer after the moderator, Kristen Welker of NBC, opens each segment with a question. Welker will then use the rest of the time in the segment to facilitate further discussion on this topic.
In a statement Friday, the commission did not explain further changes to the rules of the final contest, which it said will be done after the first debate between the presidential candidates escalated into a chaotic affair with the president, which violates the rules and repeatedly interrupts the former vice president. .
Remember: Trump and Biden were scheduled to discuss last Thursday, but the debate was called off after Trump refused to participate in the virtual debate. The commission changed the format to a virtual discussion due to the president’s positive diagnosis of coronavirus earlier this month, which left him in hospital for three days.
Instead, both candidates took part in town halls on the night of the first debate. Biden appeared on ABC for an hour and a half at City Hall, and Trump appeared on NBC for half an hour.
