NBC was reeling heading into Thursday’s town hall with President Trump, under widespread criticism for scheduling it at the same time as ABC’s town hall with Democratic opponent Joe Biden. NBC was accused of rewarding Trump for rejecting the debate commission’s plan to do the second debate virtually. That was quickly forgotten when the president sat opposite Guthrie, who questioned him specifically on when he last tested positive for COVID-19 (he said he didn’t remember), whether he had pneumonia (didn’t say) and his personal finances.
NBC News Group chairman Cesar Conde says in a statement that “we share in the frustration that our event will initially air alongside the first half of ABC’s broadcast with Vice President Biden,” adding that “Our decision is motivated only by fairness, not business considerations.”
Donald Trump will do a town hall for NBC News on Thursday, after an agreement was reached between the network and his presidential campaign on the details for the event. That means that Trump and Joe Biden will each participate in separate town halls on the same evening, after plans for a presidential debate with a similar format were scrapped.
