Town halls with Biden and Trump: Live coverage and fact check

October 15, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

With the election just weeks away, President Trump and former vice president Joe Biden participate in competing town halls tonight. Here's the latest news on campaigns, voting and more.

President Trump is conducting a town hall tonight instead of a debate by his choice.

Biden implied that most of that change would focus on the corporate tax rate, something that was cut under Trump. “If you raise the corporate tax back to 28%, which is a fair tax, you’d raise over $1 trillion by that one act,” Biden said.

President Trump said he denounced White supremacy tonight during a town hall on NBC after he didn't do so during the first presidential debate.

Joe Biden opened his ABC town hall on Thursday night by describing how he would have handled the coronavirus differently, using the comparison to lambast President Donald Trump for his somewhat uneven response to the virus.

“He didn’t talk about what needed to be done because he kept worrying, in my view, about the stock market,” Biden said of Trump.

President Trump said he feels "good" after testing positive for Covid-19 weeks ago and couldn't recall whether he was tested on the day of the first presidential debate.

Meanwhile, a voter in ABC News' town hall asked Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden about Trump's coronavirus response and what policies he would implement if he were president.

President Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden's dueling town halls have just kicked off.

The plans for the two men to meet face-to-face at a town hall where they would take questions from voters evaporated after Trump's coronavirus diagnosis, amid fears that he could have exposed Biden and others to the virus during the chaotic first debate.

The Commission on Presidential Debates proposed a virtual debate, but Trump refused — leading Biden to make his own plans with ABC for a solo town hall.

Trump's campaign then arranged for the President to do his own town hall with NBC during the same hour.
