United States, Joe Biden considers that debates with Donald Trump should be postponed
Joe Biden, Democratic candidate for the White House, assured that the debate scheduled for October 15 with the president of the United States, Donald Trump, should not be held if the president continues to be ill with COVID-19. "I think if you still have COVID-19, we shouldn't have a debate," Biden told reporters.
Biden's words come after Trump has anticipated his participation in the face-to-face on Twitter this Tuesday: "I am waiting for the debate on Thursday night, October 15 in Miami. It will be great!" He wrote.
In addition to the debate in Miami on October 15, there is a final one scheduled for the 22nd in Nashville, Tennessee. Biden assured that he hopes to debate with Trump on those dates, but also that very strict protocols must be followed. Too many people have been infected. It is a very serious problem, so I will be guided by the protocols, said the democrat, whose campaign announced that he again tested negative in a new test he underwent this Tuesday.
Biden and Trump debated for the first time last Tuesday, a few hours before the president's positive. For his part, the Vice President of the United States, Mike Pence, and his Democratic rival, Kamala Harris, are scheduled to participate in a face-to-face tomorrow in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Although the vice president has tested negative on all the tests he has taken since Trump's positive, the Harris campaign has called for the installation of Plexiglas separating barriers.
