    Hopefully Biden will be drugged up with the right assortment of lollies and won’t have a senior moment.

    Only to get wider as 4 Nov approaches. Still a big bunch of fence sitters who voted Trump in 2016 will move to Biden.

    The hard core Trump can do no wrong folks are relatively small in number.

    Prez bonespurs the coward is gonna take a major ass kicking and being the coward he is will blame everyone else for the loss.

    Don't buy into the fear he is generating re rigged elections. He knows he is dust and so does his campaign team. He will slink away into obscurity come Jan 20, 2021. Cowards are like that don't ya know.
    Whenever you find yourself on the side of the majority, it is time to pause and reflect.

    Nope. As long as there is no real-time fact checking there's no point as Joe may have the facts and the demeanour to outline them Trump will do as he always does - be arrogant, create his own agenda, lie, be abrasive and insulting.

    His fans will love it.

    TV ratings are the reason it's being done.

    It's all bullshit.

    The whole system in the US is bullshit and anti-democratic.

    He avoided Vietnam so prison shouldn’t be a hazard.

    Nah you pay expensive lawyers and bribe prosecutors and attorneys for that.
    Lots of evidence can be disappeared or endlessly argued over for the right money or connections.

    Helio Castroneves probably feels like dancing. The racecar driver and former Dancing with the Stars winner has been acquitted on six counts of tax evasion.

    Lets also not forget that the Times report is only the first in a series of potentially damaging reports to come out.

    Heard, and dunno if it's true, that there are two more pieces to come and it fits in with Brad Parscale's meltdown the other day.

    Does an absence in a murderous war create a negative or positive consideration? Just curious...

    Well, takes bunches on bucks but Mr Bonespurs appears to be a bit light in that category.

    Let the Debates Begin...

    US election 2020: When is the Trump v Biden presidential debate? - BBC News

    When - and where - are the Trump v Biden debates?

    There are three presidential debates on the agenda:

    29 September in Cleveland, Ohio
    15 October in Miami, Florida
    22 October in Nashville, Tennessee

    Vice-President Mike Pence and Senator Kamala Harris will also go head-to-head:
    7 October in Salt Lake City, Utah

    They all take place from 21:00-22:30ET (02:00-03:30BST), with no commercial interruptions.

    How can you follow the debate?

    On our live page from 08:00 EST (13:30 BST) on Tuesday which you will be able to find here.

    That's a one-stop shop for pre-debate commentary, a livestream of the action from Cleveland, and all the reaction and analysis from BBC experts across the US and our panel of voters.

    All the latest developments will also be tweeted @BBCNorthAmerica while you can also see the main speeches and get analysis on BBC World News (global) and the BBC News Channel (UK).

    What's the format for the first debate?

    Six questions in six segments, 15 minutes each. The segments are:

    - Trump and Biden's records
    - Supreme Court
    - Coronavirus pandemic
    - Race protests and violence in cities
    - Election integrity
    - Economy

    Mr Trump and Mr Biden will get two minutes apiece to respond to the question initially before the back-and-forth begins.

    What should people watch out for in the first debate?

    Donald Trump is a known quality. He seeks out and dominates in the public spotlight, and his strengths and weaknesses are familiar to most Americans. That's why the presidential debates will be much more focused on how Joe Biden performs in the spotlight.

    Biden's task will be to post a sure and steady performance. He needs to make Americans, at least enough of them to win in November, comfortable with the thought of him in the Oval Office. He needs to dispel concerns about his age and mental alacrity and avoid the kind of verbal stumbles that have bedevilled him in the past.

    Trump's job, on the other hand, will be to trip his opponent up. As Hillary Clinton and his primary opponents can attest, he is a destabilising, unpredictable presence on the stage - and if he can fluster Biden, it might sow the seeds of doubt in the minds of the Democrat's less devoted supporters. While doing so, he will also have to be prepared for Biden's counterattacks - including criticisms about how he has handled the coronavirus pandemic, the economy and the duties of the presidency.

    It has the makings of a raucous encounter.

    Nothing about the environment (the newsfeed I get has a lot about the West Coast fires).

    There rarely ever is. Almost all the battleground states are back east. The west coast is pretty predictably democratic in it's voting.
