Moments after The Presidential Fee on Debates announced that “in order to guard the well being and security of all concerned,” the following presidential debate can be held just about, candidate Joe Biden and COVID-19 affected person Donald Trump’s campaigns reacted.
Joe Biden’s marketing campaign mentioned, “Vice President Biden appears ahead to talking on to the American individuals and evaluating his plan for bringing the nation collectively and constructing again higher with Donald Trump’s failed management on the coronavirus.”
And Trump’s marketing campaign? They’re opting for one other superspreader occasion:
That’s not what debates are about or how they’re performed.
