    Trump backs out of next presidential debate

    President Trump says he won't participate in a virtual town hall, after the independent commission that runs presidential debates announced that next week's scheduled event would be virtual for health and safety reasons.

    His decision set off a back-and-forth between the major-party presidential campaigns about the remaining debates, with the Democratic nominee, Joe Biden, scheduling a separate town hall.

    "I'm not going to do a virtual debate," Trump told Fox Business anchor Maria Bartiromo on Thursday morning, calling the format "a waste of time."

    His comments came soon after the Commission on Presidential Debates announced the format change, which it said was made "to protect the health and safety of all involved." The Oct. 15 town hall was set for Miami.

    Instead, Trump and Biden — along with all the town hall participants — would be in in separate, remote locations, the commission said.

    Thursday morning's interview was Trump's first since returning from the hospital Monday to receive the rest of his treatment for COVID-19 at the White House.

    Trump told Bartiromo that he had no advance notice of the change.

    Bill Stepien, Trump's campaign manager — who also has tested positive for the coronavirus — rebuked what he called the commission's "unilateral declaration."

    "For the swamp creatures at the Presidential Debate Commission to now rush to Joe Biden's defense by unilaterally canceling an in-person debate is pathetic," he said in a statement. "The safety of all involved can easily be achieved without canceling a chance for voters to see both candidates go head to head. We'll pass on this sad excuse to bail out Joe Biden and do a rally instead."

    The Biden campaign quickly fired back.

    "Joe Biden was prepared to accept the CPD's proposal for a virtual Town Hall, but the President has refused, as Donald Trump clearly does not want to face questions from the voters about his failures on COVID and the economy," Biden deputy campaign manager Kate Bedingfield said in a statement. "As a result, Joe Biden will find an appropriate place to take questions from voters directly on October 15th, as he has done on several occasions in recent weeks."

    You guys think he's scared? I just think he'd find it harder to try and bully Joe if they're not in the same room.
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    Sounds like you are describing a form of fear as well. He's scared his shady tactics won't fly (oof....tough callback for Pence) so well in a virtual format.

    well, I guess there's that...most bullies are actually scared of something and that's their reaction
    either way, bullying works better in person

    Covering up fear and spreading fear are definitely two things he's experienced at.

    I would probably say it's a bit of both. It will definitely make him look even worse if they're doing a virtual debate and he won't stop talking to let Joe answer than it did during the first debate.
    Prior to 11/1/19: if you were on my ignore list, I was sticking to ignoring you thanks to great advise.
    From 11/1/19 on: I will no longer be responding to comments back to people on my ignore list.

    Think long and hard about why you respond to nonsense. Please!
