The Commission on Presidential Debates has released topics for the final presidential debate between President Trump and Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden, which will take place next Thursday in Nashville, Tennessee.
The debate will start at 21:00. ET and run for 90 minutes without commercial breaks.
The six topics are:
The format is the same as the first debate: each segment will last approximately 15 minutes and candidates will have two minutes to respond after the moderator, Kristen Welker of NBC, opens each segment with a question. Welker will then use the rest of the time in the segment to facilitate further discussions on the topic.
In Friday’s announcement, the committee did not explain further changes to the rules for the final contest, which it said it would do after the first debate among the presidential candidates turned into a chaotic relationship with the president breaking the rules. rules and repeatedly interrupts the former vice president. .
Remember: Trump and Biden were supposed to have discussed last Thursday, but that debate was canceled after Trump refused to participate in a virtual debate. The commission changed the format in a virtual debate due to the president’s positive coronavirus diagnosis earlier this month, which left him hospitalized for three days.
Instead, both candidates attended city halls on the night that the debate was originally scheduled. Biden appeared on ABC for an hour and a half in the city hall, and Trump appeared on NBC for an hour and a half in the city hall.
