School Cancels Presidential Debate

School Cancels Presidential Debate

(NewsReady.com) – COVID-19 is impacting everything from employment to airline travel. This week, it also affected the 2020 presidential race.

There are currently three debates scheduled between President Donald Trump and his presumed opponent, Democrat Joe Biden. One of those head-to-heads was going to take place at the University of Michigan. Those plans changed this week when the school decided to cancel the event.

The Commission on Presidential Debates wasted no time in finding a new location, so now it’s set to be held in Miami. The other two events will take place in Indiana and Tennessee during the fall. President Trump would like to have more debates, but so far, Biden has not agreed to this request.

  1. COVID is real… but extreme liberals have figured out how to “weaponize” it… and how to resurrect the racist reality to their advantage. With the following accomplishments under Trump’s belt… their goal is two-fold: First, destroy any or all of his great accomplishments for people like us who couldn’t find a job under Obama. And second: create a panic to act as an excuse to keep Trump on the ropes and Biden hidden safely in the basement. Nevertheless, this is why we are better off now than under Obama/Biden:

  2. Janet, America is NOT operating on a Socialist System!!
    Although the Democrats are trying hard to put Americans totally dependent on the government.
    We have some socialized programs, welfare and Medicaid. Thanks Democrats. These are only surviving because they are fueled by our Capitol Economy!
    Apparently you do not know, as it is true for most Dems, what a Socialist System actually involves!
    Trust that your entire existence would be quite different and less than it is now!

  3. What moderates are left in the Democrat Party will sell their sole to Socialism. At least Trump is a STATESMAN! Conservative he is not but he has my vote in November.

    • In many instances, the COVID threat is as real as the Racial Injustice Problem. But when those calamities are hijacked for political leverage, the true cause is lost in the uproar. Of all the fuss over hospitals being understaffed, that situation only occurred in a few locations. For the most part, important surgeries were cancelled, but hospitals were also empty. Now… after a four month “panic” and “public-control” test run, it’s obvious that either COVID or BLM or both will be “weaponized” by the extreme left to provide Biden with an excuse not to appear in debates, voter fraud opportunities, and the continued destruction of small businesses and the economy.

  4. Funny how the Trump supporters can fine any and all dim light on his opponent. But Let’s not give Trump that much credit. Never has there been a bigger fool to lead our nation and those that follow him. Well. A fool shall lead and may will follow . When this nation ends.

    • Well summer, try practicing your grammar before you bore better-informed readers with your righteous nonsense.

    • As usual Summer… no facts… just a lot of name-calling. Here are some facts for you. Trump accomplishments in the past 3 years. Go ahead… fact check them with an unbiased source:

    • The nation will end if the extremists from the left get the chance to convert this great nation into a Socialism Cess Pool, that will be the beginning of the end. Apparently they they’re unable to see what it has done to other places like Venezuela!

  5. Funny thing happened, Minneapolis requested Federal funding to help clean up the Holocaust that occured in there city Really ?? They should of called the police.

    • The rest of the demoncrap cities will do the same. Thats’ why pelosi is still touting the heroes act, more pork for the demoncraps and a stipend for the taxpayers that is paying for their mismanagement.

    • When I read the headline I knew I had to go straight to the comment section.
      Of course they cancelled the debate in Michigan, if the get the opportunity they will use the COVID excuse to cancel all of the debates between the candidates. After all Biden can’t remember what state he is even campaigning in when he attempts to make a speech. Let’s not forget one of his more recent gaffes that we have had 120 million die from COVID. Dude that is more like 120,000!
      🤦‍♀️

  6. I’d pay money to watch Trump destroy that mumbling fool! They’re already circling the wagons to try to prevent that from happening! When they suggest a “virtual” debate, you better shoot it down quick Mr. President!

    • No surprise here, UofM is a hotbed for liberals/dems/socialists and must realize that old china joe would be a bumbling fool if he debates Trump and who would want that on their own turf…

    • Don’t you know it! Biden couldn’t debate his way out of a brown paper bag and I don’t know how they could cover his ass during the debate when he forgets where and what state he’s currently at while he spews his misinformation of 120 million deaths in this country due to the COVID virus! 🤦‍♀️

  7. I hope the whole country can see this Democrat party is wanting socialism to take over our country. Please AMERICAN citizens go out vote our best President back into office November 3 2020 vote Trump for President

  8. All this modern technology and no one can figure out how to get Joe safely out of the basement for a debate. Is anyone surprised?

  9. Why did they cancel it? It sure wasn’t COVID 19, More like, we don’t want to see the floor moped with Joe Biden. Typical liberals and democrats are afraid that Biden will be seen for what he really is. A mealy mouthed know nothing with half a brain who can’t function withouit a tele-prompter

    • What amazes me is that Biden is a career politician and hasn’t made any type of significant contribution to this country in 40 years yet that’s the best they’ve got. If you look back at his voting record he is one of the biggest racists in our government history by being opposed to interracial bussing in schools and longer/stiffer jail sentences a few decades back.

  10. An attempt to leave their candidate in his basement!
    Who wouldn’t do that to keep their ‘candidate’ from continuing to expose himself and being an embarrassment to the party.

  11. The State or Whitlessmer what did you expect. No bailout for that group of lefts. Wallow in your selfdebt!!!

  12. Does this surprise anyone? The last thing the left-wing liberals want is a debate. With Michigan’s over reaching governor I’m surprised living hasn’t been cancelled. Wake up America this is your first what you are experiencing is socialism.

  13. Biden needs to step up and except these debates. He’s very scared of what he will say because he makes no sense at all. All you democraps should realize he’s got dementia. If he gets in, I’m sure he will be examined by a doctor who will find him incompetent to hold the job of President. SO WISE UP DEMOCRAPS!!!

    • That’s why the Dems are real concerned over who will be asked to step in as Vice President.

    • Democrats wanted Pres. Trump to be tested physically and mentally, so should Biden. They can’t find a VP that can stand up to the heat.Nor intelligent .

  14. Biden WON’T agree to more DEBATES . . . Or, maybe he FORGOT the QUESTION. Either way, he’ll lose ANYWAY. One Humored Patriot. Team Trump and his allies 2020.

    • Amazing. Not really. President Trump is ready to go head to head with more debates and Biden has to be carried kicking and screaming out of his basement for just the bare minimum of three.

  15. No good Democrat wants to see President Trump debate this mentally impaired crook. The longer they can stall the better it is for the crook a.k.a. Joe Biden.
