Prospects for 2nd United States presidential debate uncertain

The Biden campaign attacks Trump and refuses to carry the third

Despite the suspicious likelihood that Trump still has covid-19, he's all but denied that he inhabits a puny human body, speculating earlier this week that he's "immune", telling the public not to let covid "dominate" them, and insisting that staying in the hospital is not very leader-like.

To help sort through the noise, we've outlined the views of Republican nominee and incumbent President Donald Trump and his challenger, Democratic nominee and former Vice President Joe Biden, on two of the major issues in this cycle amid the ongoing pandemic.

The Commission of Presidential Debates announced on Thursday that the planned October 15 debate would go virtual to "protect the health and safety of all involved" in the event.

"And then they cut you off whenever they want", complained Trump, who rendered the first presidential debate almost unwatchable with constant interruptions.

Trump's refusal to partake in a virtual debate comes less than a week after his positive COVID-19 diagnosis was announced. However, Trump's positive coronavirus test and subsequent quarantine have put the status of this debate in question.

In the comparable quarter of a year ago , it had reported a lower £1.68 billion of net income or 98 pence per share. Like other investment banks, Morgan Stanley benefitted from markets that generally moved higher through the summer.

The Trump campaign argued that the debate commission was trying to "hide" Joe Biden from the people.

The debate was due to be hosted by the Adrienne Arsht Centre for the Performing Arts in Miami on October 15 at 9pm ET (2am in the UK). The campaign said Biden would listen to science, ensure public health decisions are informed by public health professionals and restore trust, transparency, common objective and accountability to the government.

The debate commission said in a statement: "The second presidential debate will take the form of a town meeting, in which the candidates would participate from separate remote locations".

Vice President Pence's team had reportedly fought the decision to install plexiglass barriers at last night's vice presidential debate. As he campaigned in Arizona, Mr Biden said he would indeed attend the October 22 debate, scheduled for Nashville, Tennessee. "But I just hope all the protocols are followed, what's necessary at the time".

The US President returned to the Oval Office on Wednesday, and described his coronavirus illness as a "bless from God". "This was China's fault".
