Instead of taking part in a virtual debate with challenger Joe Biden, President Donald Trump participated in a town hall on Thursday night in Miami.

The president was at the Pérez Art Museum in Miami.

Originally, the two presidential candidates were supposed to have their second of three debates; however, after the president contracted the coronavirus, the debate was going to go virtual, but the president announced he would not partake in a virtual debate.

While Trump had his town hall, Biden was in Philadelphia for a town hall, also at 8 p.m.

Today anchor Savannah Guthrie hosted the hour-long town hall.
