NBC announced Wednesday that President Trump will take part in a socially-distanced Miami town hall this week.
The big picture: The decision comes after after the president balked at a virtual second presidential debate following his positive coronavirus diagnosis.Joe Biden will simultaneously join a town hall held by ABC News in Philadelphia.
- "Today" anchor Savannah Guthrie will moderate Trump's event. The audience will be required to wear masks, and Guthrie and Trump will remain 12 feet apart.
Worth noting: The network said that it had received a statement from NIH clinical director Clifford Lane, saying that he and Anthony Fauci had reviewed a PCR test collected from the president earlier this week and believe Trump is "not shedding infectious virus ... with a high degree of confidence."
