The Commission on Presidential Debates said Friday it has cancelled next week's showdown between Donald Trump and his challenger Joe Biden, after the president said he would not participate in a virtual format. "Each (candidate) now has announced alternate plans for that date," the commission said in a statement, adding "it is now apparent there will be no debate on October 15."

As per news report of NDTV, the move leaves just one more debate on the schedule -- October 22 in Nashville, Tennessee -- before the November 3 election. Debates have been a feature of every US presidential election since 1976, with three debates near the end of a campaign the standard since 2000. The commission had announced Thursday it was converting the October 15 town hall debate to a virtual affair out of an abundance of caution because Trump had tested positive for the coronavirus.
