Instead of debating President Donald Trump, Democratic challenger Joe Biden took part in a town hall on Thursday night in Philadelphia.

ABC News anchor George Stephanopoulos hosted Biden’s 90-minute town hall at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia.

Originally, Biden and President Donald Trump were supposed to hold their second of three debates.

However, after the president contracted the coronavirus, the debate was going to go virtual, but Trump announced he would not partake in a virtual debate.

Instead, Trump took part in a town hall of his own in Miami, also at 8 p.m.

After that, ABC News had a 30-minute post-show to provide an analysis of what happened.
