The US Commission on Presidential Debates has announced that the second scheduled face-off between President Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Joe Biden has been cancelled for good for security reasons, with no replacement date.
It’s now apparent there will be no debate on October 15, and the CDP will turn its attention to preparations for the final presidential debate scheduled for October 22,” the commission said on Friday.
The event was called off after Trump refused to participate in a virtual debate the CPD proposed, amid concerns that he still might be contagious after his Covid-19 diagnosis last week.
Trump insisted that he and Jesuit Catholic front runner Biden should spar in person, with his campaign suggesting that the debate might be shifted to a later date.
The CDP decided unilaterally, without any consultation whatsoever with either the RNC or DNC, that the next debate would be virtual.
This was refused by the Trump campaign because it allows Sloppy Joe to take major advantage from any number of aids (teleprompters, earplugs, live assistants with cue cards … ) to surrogate.
The CDP justified this because of Trump’s Covid-19 which, according to “science” (fiction), is not an issue after 10 days from a negative test.
On Thursday, the Trump campaign argued that the debate can take place on October 22 (the date earlier reserved for the third presidential bout), and the third one can be moved to October 29.
Biden’s campaign rejected that proposal, insisting that it’s up to the commission to decide. So be it, congratulations.
