NEW YORK, New York (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Americans looking forward to the 2016 presidential debates may not see one at all — at least not on television.
As previously announced by the Commission on Presidential Debates, the schedule for three 2016 presidential debates is as follows:?
- First presidential debate: Monday, Sept. 26, 2016, at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y.
- Second presidential debate: Sunday, Oct. 9, 2016, at Washington University in St. Louis.
- Third presidential debate: Wednesday, Oct. 19, 2016 at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas
Today, the Trump campaign indicated that their candidate would rather have all three presidential debates done via Twitter because “he has millions of followers on social media and he’s good at one-liner tweets.”
However, the lone vice presidential debate will still be held on Tuesday, Oct. 4, 2016, at Longwood University in Farmville, Va., which will be televised live.
The Clinton campaign has yet to respond to Donald Trump’s proposal.
