For more: https://www.cgtn.com/video U.S. President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden are set to go head to head in their last scheduled debate this Thursday. With their first encounter marred with constant interruptions, this time the two candidates will have their microphones muted to allow the other to speak without being interrupted. The decision was made after the White House physician’s announcement that Mr. Trump tested negative for COVID-19, 10 days after he contracted the coronavirus. With two weeks to go until election day, after some 27 million Americans have already voted, both men are pushing to capture swing states and galvanize last-minute support. What can we expect from their final face-off? Will hot button issues such as race, law and order, and the pandemic still take center stage?CGTN YouTube Channel
