Donald Trump addresses voters in town hall

By RADIO.COM

President Donald Trump will have a chance to address voters directly in a town hall on Thursday night.

The event, which is happening in Miami, will air on NBC News at 8pm ET on Thursday, Oct. 15.

Trump's town hall is happening instead of the originally scheduled second presidential debate, which was set to be a town hall in which Trump and opponent Joe Biden would have a chance to speak to voters directly.

The hour-long event will be moderated by “TODAY” anchor Savannah Guthrie and take place outside the Pérez Art Museum.

Trump and Guthrie will be seated 12 feet apart from one another, and the audience in attendance will also be socially distanced.

The original town hall debate was cancelled by the Commission on Presidential Debates after Trump refused to participate in the organization’s proposed virtual debate after he and First Lady Melania Trump tested positive for coronavirus in the beginning of the month. Many White House staff and Trump allies also tested positive for the virus at the time.

On Wednesday morning, NBC News confirmed the town hall would take place.

Former Vice President Joe Biden is holding a town hall of his own on Thursday night. The hour-and-a-half event will air on ABC News at 8pm.
