(ASdN with AFP) – No. This is a categorical refusal on the part of Donald Trump. The US president announced Thursday that he did not wish to participate in a debate in virtual form with his Democratic opponent Joe Biden. “This is not acceptable,” he told Fox Business.
The organizing committee indeed announced Thursday the maintenance of the next debate, but at a distance. Scheduled for October 15, it provided that the candidates should be in separate places.
These new rules issued by the independent commission responsible for organizing the presidential debates come a week after the announcement of Donald Trump’s contamination with covid-19.
