Trump, Biden traveling to Tennessee for final presidential debate showdown

Dems’ debate strategy: Avoid Trump’s accomplishments?

Did Democrats want to skip questions on the economy and foreign policy to avoid two Trump strong suits? Reaction from Joe Concha, media reporter for The Hill.

President Trump and Democratic rival Joe Biden are preparing to face off for the second and final debate on Thursday night in Tennessee with the presidential election just 12 days away. 

Like the first debate, each candidate will be allotted 2 minutes of speaking time to answer the moderator's questions; but under a new plan announced Monday by the Commission on Presidential Debates, during that portion of the debate, the opposing candidate's microphone will be muted.

"I'll participate. I just think it's very unfair," Trump said Monday when asked by reporters about the change.

Here's what you need to know about the presidential campaigns and how they'll be spending Thursday, Oct. 22, 2020, just 12 days away from the Nov. 3 election.

President Trump

Trump is slated to travel to Nashville this afternoon ahead of the 90-minute presidential debate, which will be moderated by NBC News' Kristen Welker. 

Before the debate, which is being held at Belmont University, Trump will participate in a roundtable with supporters. 

The debate is scheduled to begin at 9 p.m. ET. 

Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden

Biden, who's been in Wilmington, Del., for most of the week preparing for the debate, is also scheduled to travel to Nashville on Thursday.

With less than two weeks to go until the Nov. 3 election, Biden is leading Trump in most national polls, but has a narrower advantage in battleground states that will likely determine the race. 

More than 44 million Americans have already cast their ballot, according to data compiled by the U.S. Elections Project.

Trump won Indiana soundly in 2016 and is widely expected to do so again. 

Democratic vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris

The California senator will participate in a virtual "Women for Biden" rally on Thursday.
