The 2020 United States presidential debates between the major candidates in the 2020 United States presidential election are being sponsored by the Commission on Presidential Debates. Three debates between  the presidential candidates are scheduled to take place on September 29, October 15 and October 22, 2020.First presidential debate with Trump vs. Biden is next week: What to know, how to watch - al.com


The first presidential debate between President Trump and former vice president Joe Biden is scheduled to take place in Cleveland, Ohio. Two more presidential debates are set for Oct. 15 and 22. The vice-presidential debate between Vice President Pence and Sen. Kamala D. Harris, is slated for Oct. 7.

This is a real Cliffhanger!

What we will witness tonight in Cleveland will reveal the debate that could have a huge impact on the election.

The candidates will appear onstage, but far apart and won’t shake hands. And the audience will be smaller in years past. The first debate will have about 80-90 people in the audience, all tested for COVID-19. The nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates said it will follow all Centers for Disease Control and Prevention guidelines and that it has retained Cleveland Clinic as a health security adviser for the debates.

How each candidate is preparing: Trump isn’t doing much. He has not held a mock debate and has no plans to, relying instead on his experience as president and testing out attacks with his advisers and at rallies. Biden is doing more traditional prep. He will fact-check the president when he feels it’s warranted, but he is more focused on not getting pulled into a personal fight on issues like family that could make him appear angry onstage.  Trump plans to go after Biden’s son, Hunter Biden, which has proven to get the vice president riled up on the campaign trail. “I hope I don’t get baited into a brawl with this guy, because that’s the only place he’s comfortable,” Biden said at a fundraiser, adding: “I know how to handle bullies.”
