President Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden meet for the final debate on Thursday, October 22 at Belmont University in Nashville, Tennessee. The two candidates will appear on the same stage in person and socially distanced from each other and the moderator.
The presidential debate grants voters a final chance to see the differences between the two candidates on the same stage. The announced topics for the debate are COVID-19, race, climate change, national security, leadership, and American families.
The two candidates met for their first debate on September 29. A little over 48 hours later, Mr. Trump announced that he had tested positive for COVID-19. He was hospitalized from October 2 until October 5.
Belmont University in Nashville will host the debate at the college's Curb Event Center. The university said it would adopt the coronavirus health and safety guidelines used for the presidential debate at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. Belmont University leaders partnered with Nashville-based healthcare group HCA Healthcare to help implement the Cleveland event's coronavirus mitigation strategies.
On Oct. 12, the president's physician, Dr. Sean P. Conley, said Trump had tested negative for the coronavirus and was no longer a threat to spread the disease. Trump has since resumed holding campaign events.
