(TheFreedomFlag.com)- After the Commission on Presidential Debates canceled the second presidential debate, President Donald Trump organized a town hall discussion with NBC to speak directly to American voters. The Thursday event is scheduled to go ahead, but on Wednesday it was revealed that the director of the National Institutes of Health, Dr. Anthony Fauci, will be expected to sign off on the President’s health beforehand.
The second presidential debate was initially changed to a virtual format following President Donald Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis, however, the president refused to agree to the new terms as he quickly recovered from the virus and knew he would test negative by the time the debate came around.
Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden refused to agree to the format being changed from a virtual town hall, and the Committee on Presidential Debates also refused. President Trump first promised that he would host a rally, but instead agreed to a “socially distanced” discussion hosted by NBC in the Perez Art Museum in Miami, Florida.
The town hall will be an outdoor event where attendees follow social distancing guidelines. President Trump, who is no longer infectious and now has antibodies that protect him from COVID-19, will be position 12 feet apart from NBC News anchor Savannah Guthrie.
Before agreeing to host the town hall with President Trump, NBC approached Dr. Anthony Fauci to confirm that President Donald Trump is no longer infectious and is not shedding the virus.
The decision was made to bring Fauci on board with the plans despite White House physician Dr. Sean Conley announcing at the beginning of the week that President Trump had tested negative for COVID-19 on consecutive days and was no longer infectious.
As a result of his recovery from the virus, President Trump hosted a large outdoor rally in Florida on Monday, and another in Pennsylvania on Tuesday.
Forbes reported how NBC was reluctant to believe the White House doctor, but Dr. Fauci has since confirmed that President Trump is testing negative.
That means the scheduled town hall is expected to go ahead and no, it won’t be virtual.
