Using caution and good judgment …..
The Commission on Presidential Debates hasn’t decided that next weeks debate can only be held on-line…
Donald Trump IS sick….
He has the Covid-19 virus….
We do NOT know what his actual health status is….
He and his doctors have been evasive about it….
One COULD see a situation like the one that just occurred at the nation’s White House were Trump helped spread the virus among his staff …Could he show up and infect Joe Biden in the last weeks of the campaign?
Trump has been trying to sell the world that he’s Superman….
No virus is going to hold him back although he’s been on a mix of several high strength drugs ?…..Some of which have not even been approved for general use yet…We do not know how the drugs have affected Trump….
Joe Biden does NOT need another the debate …
He is holding a sizeable lead in national polls and now is pulling away from Trump even in state polls…
We are now in for a round of Trump & Co. attacking the committee and everyone else except Donald Trump himself….
Gonna be even more interesting for the next few weeks before the election as Donald Trump tries anything and everything (another mask take off show?) to get attention with his re-election chances diminishing by the day…
President Trump said Thursday that he would not participate in a virtual debate, minutes after the organizing commission announced that next week’s event would be virtual to protect the health of those involved.
“I’m not going to do a virtual debate,” Trump, who was diagnosed last week with the coronavirus, said in an interview on Fox Business, claiming the Commission on Presidential Debates is “trying to protect” Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
“I’m not going to waste my time with a virtual debate. That’s not what debating is all about. You sit behind a computer and do a debate, that is ridiculous,” Trump continued. He indicated that his campaign was not informed of the decision before it was announced….
Biden’s campaign indicated that the former vice president would participate.
“Vice President Biden looks forward to speaking directly to the American people and comparing his plan for bringing the country together and building back better with Donald Trump’s failed leadership on the coronavirus that has thrown the strong economy he inherited into the worst downturn since the Great Depression,” campaign spokesperson Kate Bedingfield said in a statement.
Trump was diagnosed with COVID-19 on Oct. 1, about a week ago.
Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien, who also was diagnosed with COVID-19 last week, issued a statement later Thursday morning, describing the decision by the commission as a “pathetic” effort to “rush to Joe Biden’s defense.” He said that Trump would hold a campaign rally instead.
Trump’s comments seem to guarantee, for now, that next week’s debate will not happen, and they inject uncertainty into the final debate, scheduled for Oct. 22. Trump has insisted that he won the first debate last week, but his aggressive performance has been criticized by Republicans as a missed opportunity that may have turned away some voters….
