The debate was scheduled to be held in Miami on October 15, but Trump’s recent COVID-19 diagnosis led to speculation that it might be canceled.
Trump has said that he was going to take part in the debate, even if it were in person, but Biden said that he would only do so if scientists said it was safe.
