Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden said that the second presidential debate should not be held
if President Donald Trump is still infected with COVID-19,
but that he would base his participation in the debate upon recommendations from medical experts.
Well, I think if he still has COVID-19, we shouldn’t have a debate,” Biden told reporters in Maryland.
“I think we’re gonna have to follow very strict guidelines. Too many people have been infected and
it’s a very serious problem.
Joe Biden continued: “And so I’ll be guided by the guidelines of the Cleveland Clinic, and what the docs say is the
right thing to do — if and when he shows up for debate.”
The former vice president also said he looks forward to the debate, which is set to take place next Thursday
“I’m looking forward to being able to debate him. But I just hope all the protocols are followed,
what’s necessary at the time,” he said.
