The first presidential debate between Trump and Biden may just be their last. The debate went largely off-script and featured President Trump frequently interrupting a sputtering Joe Biden. Chris Wallace frequently had to shout over the two to try and regain control of the debate. Now the future of the 2020 debates is in question with Trump contracting COVID-19 and the disaster that the first debate proved to be.

Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris are still on for their vice presidential debate on Wed. Oct 7 at Kingsbury Hall, Salt Lake City, Utah.
