Chris Wallace chooses topics for presidential debate – Deadline


Fox News Sunday Presenter Chris Wallace, moderator of the first presidential debate of the season on September 29, has selected the six topics that will face President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden.

The subjects are the Trump and Biden cases, the Supreme Court, COVID-19, the economy, race and violence in our cities and the integrity of the election. Topics may not be in the order in which they are listed.

The Presidential Debates Committee said the debate will consist of six 15-minute segments, for a total of 90 minutes.

The first debate will take place at Case Western Reserve University and the Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland.

The choice of topics to exclude climate change has been criticized, also barely addressed during the debates of the 2016 legislative elections.

“This is unacceptable – the climate crisis cannot be ignored,” Tom Steyer, Democratic candidate in 2020, wrote on Twitter. He included a link to a petition for it to be included.

But the Presidential Debates Commission leaves the choice of subjects and questions to the moderators. There will be other opportunities: Steve Scully of C-SPAN will host a presidential debate on October 15 with a town hall format, and Kristen Welker of NBC News will host the final debate on October 22.
