THE FIRST PRESIDENTIAL debate between Donald Trump and Joe Biden kicks off Tuesday, September 29, from Cleveland. With only 36 days until Election Day, it’s the first chance to see the two nominees square off on a range of issues. The timing is auspicious: In the past few days, Trump nominated conservative judge Amy Coney Barrett to the Supreme Court just weeks before the election, and The New York Times obtained and detailed two decades of the president’s tax information. Expect to hear plenty about both.
The debates will air live starting at 9 pm ET, with Fox News anchor Chris Wallace moderating. Wallace has announced the six topics he plans to cover over 90 minutes: the Trump and Biden records, the Supreme Court, the coronavirus, the economy, electoral integrity, and “race and violence in our cities.”
