The University of Notre Dame refused to hold a presidential debate

This is the second time that the platform for the debate between President Donald Trump and his Democratic opponent, Joe Biden, has been moved.

The University of Notre Dame declined the opportunity to host the first presidential debate in 2020, explaining its decision to concern about the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
In this regard, the debate was moved to Cleveland, where it will be held on September 29, the Commission on presidential debates reported.

The first debate involving President Donald Trump and his Democratic rival, former Vice President Joe Biden, will be co-hosted by Case University of the Western Reserve district and the Cleveland clinic, the Commission said.

This is the second time the debate venue has been moved due to the pandemic.

In June, the University of Michigan declined to host the third debate, which is scheduled for October 15, and it was moved to Miami.

Other debates are scheduled to take place in salt lake city on October 7 and in Nashville on October 22.
