More on the Trump Town Hall format
This town hall event essentially started with President Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis earlier this month. His team refused to participate in an online version of the planned Oct. 15 town hall format debate, organized by the Committee on Presidential Debates. And then, the candidates moved to do their own things.
Last week, Biden coordinated with ABC on airing a town hall event on the designated date. Earlier this week, NBC and Trump worked out a deal, but scheduled the Trump Town Hall as counter-programming.
Today host Savannah Guthrie will host the town hall event, at Miami’s Perez Art Museum—reportedly in an outdoor setting. The Trump town hall is expected to last an hour, meaning that viewers could switch to ABC or ABC News Live and catch the tail end of the Biden event.
Will it last just an hour, though? It’s Trump; it’s 2020—there are no rules.
Trump and Biden still are scheduled to come together one last time, for a debate scheduled for Oct. 22 in Nashville. Assuming it goes as planned, it will be hosted by Kristen Welker of NBC News.
