Debate Commission Under Fire After Canceling Second Presidential Debate


After the debate commission’s cancellation, former Republican Sen. Bob Dole came out and stated that not a single member of the commission supports President Trump. On Sunday, RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel shared her own concerns about the Commission on Presidential Debates.

McDaniel ultimately criticized the debate commission for “unilaterally” terminating the October 15 debate. The RNC chairwoman then went on to note that the Commission on Presidential Debates never once consulted the presidential candidates before nixing the second contest.

Finally, McDaniel asserted that the debate commission is in the “pocket of Joe Biden” and wrong for blocking the second Trump vs. Biden debate.

Moving forward in the 2020 election

The second presidential debate may be off the table but this is not slowing down the president’s re-election campaign by any means.

This week, Trump is set to appear in Florida, Iowa, and Pennsylvania. During these stops, the commander-in-chief will rally with supporters. These rallies will furthermore mark Trump’s return to the campaign trails since recovering from coronavirus.
