Second US presidential debate Cancelled between Trump and Biden

Vastavam web: The second presidential debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden has been cancelled, the Commission on Presidential Debates has said in a statement. “It is now apparent there will be no debate on October 15, and the CPD will turn its attention to preparations for the final presidential debate scheduled for October 22,” the commission said in an emailed statement. Mr Trump announced last Friday he had tested positive, and spent three days receiving treatment in hospital before being released on Monday.

After his release he refused to take part in a virtual debate, declaring it a “waste of time”.Mr Trump’s team later countered with a call to hold the debates as scheduled, once the President’s doctor said he would be cleared to hold public events from Saturday. It would not have been the first time two presidential hopefuls faced off in a televised debate from different locations.
