Crime-ridden city watches NYPD lose $1 billion
It’s really going to happen: New York City is planning to pull $1 billion from its police department in the crime-ridden city of 8.3 million.
The Biden campaign has agreed to three debates with President Donald Trump leading up to the November presidential election.
Biden Campaign manager Jen O'Malley Dillon agreed to the three meetings, but apparently trying to cover all her bases did two things: (1) fretted in a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates that President Trump might "make excuses for a refusal to participate"; and (2) complained Trump's push for more than three debates "create(s) a distracting 'debate about debates."
Most conservative pundits think Trump would like to give Biden all the rope he needs, no matter how many debates. Scott Whitlock of Media Research Center tells OneNewsNow there's a reason the former vice president and presumptive Democratic candidate has been out of the public eye for months – and it isn't all due to the coronavirus.
"A lot of these things that they've been trying to hide by not having Biden do a lot of public events are just going to be put out in the light [during the debates]," he predicts.
The debates are scheduled for September 29 at the University of Notre Dame in Indiana; October 15 at Miami's Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts; and October 22 at Belmont University in Nashville. A vice presidential debate is scheduled for October 7 at the University of Utah in Salt Lake City.
Despite arguments to the contrary, Whitlock argues the presidential debates are important because there are always people who are going to look at the debates and ask: Does this person look fit to be president?
"It does matter [to have these debates] because it's going to be a very close election," he continues, "and to that small … group of people who are persuadable, this could be the thing that helps them make up their minds."
All the debates will air from 9:00-10:30 p.m. (Eastern) and will be broadcast live on all major networks and cable news channels. All the major news networks will offer a free live stream, as will YouTube and Twitter. Details such as moderators and the specific format of each debate will be announced later.
