Trump Campaign Demands In-Person Presidential Debate on October 15

President Trump’s campaign is presently requesting an in-person debate, referring to his doctor’s note that he has finished treatment for Covid-19.

“I fully anticipate the President’s safe return to public engagements.”

Initially, the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) declared that the second debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden would essentially set off a chain of public negotiations concerning the rest of the debate plan’s status.

On Thursday morning, the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) said that the following official discussion, due on October 15, would be a virtual issue, with the candidates showing up distantly. Donald Trump added more problems to the U.S. presidential race by declining to participate in the October 15 debate with Joe Biden after it was changed to a virtual discussion to mitigate the spread of Covid-19, provoking the two campaigns to propose delaying it seven days.

The virtual setup was likely made considering health, as Trump contracted COVID-19 a week ago may still be contaminated next Thursday. However, Trump’s doctor Dr. Sean Conley said he expects Trump to continue public activity on Saturday following a 10-day confinement period from the COVID. The Trump campaign said an in-person debate must push ahead on October 15.

It incited Bill Stepien, Trump’s campaign administrator and one of the numerous who contracted Covid-19 from the White House, to deliver an announcement.

“[There is] no medical reason why the Commission on Presidential Debates should shift the debate to a virtual setting, postpone it or otherwise alter it in any way.”

Following Trump’s refusal to partake in the presidential debate before the day, Biden reported plans to hold a town hall with ABC News on October 15. The two sides are consenting to October 22 as the date for the second official discussion.

As it currently stands, both parties have consented to hold a town hall discussion on October 22, which is the day that the CPD initially set as the third and last date of the presidential debate. The Trump campaign proposes rescheduling the final debate on October 29, which the other party declined.
