COVID-19, Economy, Violence in Cities Among Topics for First Trump-Biden Debate

The COVID-19 pandemic and the violence that’s taken place in cities across the country this year are among the topics chosen by Fox News moderator Chris Wallace for the first debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

Biden and Trump are scheduled to face off on Sept. 29 at Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio.

Wallace chose COVID-19, “Race and Violence In Our Cities,” the candidates’ records, “The Integrity of the Election,” the economy, and “The Supreme Court,” as the six topics the candidates will answer questions on.

Each topic will be tackled for 15 minutes.

The debate is slated to go on for 90 minutes.

The Commission on Presidential Debates, a self-described nonpartisan commission that arranges the debates, announced the topics on Tuesday.

The topics are announced ahead of time “in order to encourage deep discussion of the leading issues facing the country,” the commission stated.

The topics could change “because of news developments,” it added.

Wallace was chosen by the commission to moderate the first debate.

The second debate, slated for Miami on Oct. 15, will be moderated by Steve Scully, an executive producer for C-SPAN.

Kristen Welker, a White House correspondent for NBC News, was tabbed to moderate the third debate, scheduled in Nashville, Tennessee, on Oct. 22.

USA Today’s Washington bureau chief Susan Page is marked down to moderate the sole debate between the vice president and the Democrat nominee.

Vice President Mike Pence and Biden’s running mate, Sen. Kamala Harris (D-Calif.), will debate in Salt Lake City, Utah, on Oct. 7.
