Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “Trump campaign cries foul on final debate topics” – below is their description.
Donald Trump and his Democratic rival Joe Biden are preparing for the final US presidential debate later on Thursday. Organisers in Nashville in the US state of Tennessee have made changes to the format aimed at avoiding a repeat of the first debate, during which Trump repeatedly interrupted Biden as he was speaking. Trump is not happy about the change and has repeatedly attacked the debate commission and the next moderator as biased against him. Earlier this week, the Trump campaign sent out a letter to the debate commission complaining they changed the focus of the debate from foreign policy, adding more domestic issues like COVID-19 and racial injustice.
