Second Presidential Debate Canceled

No decision yet on other possible debates before the election

On Friday, the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) canceled the second presidential debate scheduled for next week. CPD had decided just the day before to make the event virtual due to President Trump having been ill with COVID-19. The decision was made without consulting the campaigns.

President Trump and his campaign declined to participate in a virtual debate, requesting alternate later dates in October. The Biden campaign has so far not agreed to the substitution of an additional date.

Bill Stepien, campaign manager for President Trump, said the president has been “medically cleared for ‘safe return to public engagements’” five days prior to the scheduled debate and there was “no medical reason why the Commission on Presidential Debates should shift the debate to a virtual setting.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That the presidential debate schedule would be worked out for the candidates’ and the country’s best interests.
  • For the Lord to lead the American people in who to elect.
  • That God would give the president’s administration wisdom to serve the American people.
