Trump and Biden to take part in separate town hall events instead of a presidential debate
NBC News confirmed on Wednesday that it will host a town hall with President Trump on Thursday evening in Miami, moderated by Today host Savannah Guthrie. It will air at 8 pm ET – the same time as former VP Joe Biden’s town hall event on ABC. The two events will be held on Thursday in place of the previously scheduled second presidential debate.
Calls to Boycott NBC for Airing Donald Trump Town Hall at Same Time As Joe Biden’s
By: Sophia Waterfield, Newsweek, October 14, 2020:
Members of the media and activist community have taken to social media to voice their dismay at NBC News hosting a town hall for President Donald Trump during the same time slot as Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden, with some calling for a boycott.
Kurt Eichenwald, a New York Times bestselling author, took to Twitter to demand people boycott Savannah Guthrie, the host of the town hall. “Get this trending. Make it hurt. She thinks harming democracy with the Trump town hall held simultaneously as Biden will help her career. Let her know – she does this, it’s wrecked.”
Another author, Tomi T Ahonen, who has changed his name on Twitter to include “boycott,” writes: “R.I.P. NBC The National Broadcasting Company died suddenly in 2020 after committing commercial suicide rewarding Donald Trump for canceling on a scheduled Presidential debate. At its peak NBC was known for stars like Johnny Carson & Tom Brokaw. There were no mourners #BoycottNBC.”
The town hall replaces the second debate for the U.S. presidential candidates, which Trump pulled out of after organizers said it would be conducted virtually due to the president having positive for the coronavirus. Biden is hosting his own town hall meeting in Philadelphia, which will be broadcasted by ABC News.

David Rothkopf, host of Deep State Radio and author of Traitor: A History of American Betrayal from Benedict Arnold to Donald Trump wrote: “So @NBCNews is presenting a Trump town hall opposite a Biden town hall? Do I have that right? They are forcing audiences to choose which candidate to watch? Isn’t that serving Trump’s agenda? Couldn’t they have chosen a different time?”
