Dueling town halls for Trump, Biden after debate plan nixed

WASHINGTON (AP) — Addressing supporters separately before their dueling town halls, President Donald Trump and Democratic challenger Joe Biden are agreeing on one big thing: The other guy is lying all the time.

The two will compete for TV audiences from afar Thursday night instead of meeting face-to-face for their second debate as originally planned.

They’ll take questions in different cities on different networks — Trump on NBC from Miami, Biden on ABC from Philadelphia.

Trump backed out of plans for the originally scheduled debate after organizers shifted the format to a virtual event following Trump’s coronavirus diagnosis.

During the day, Trump spoke at a midday rally in North Carolina, while Biden addressed a virtual fundraiser.
