US President Donald Trump has refused to take part in a virtual TV debate with his Democratic rival Joe Biden.
Earlier the commission deciding the 15th October Miami debate’s format said it would have to take place remotely.
It made the decision after Mr. Trump was treated for Covid-19.
He has no current symptoms but the White House is tackling a cluster of positive tests.
He said the move to virtual was to protect his rival.
Mr. Biden said Mr. Trump changed his mind every second.
The first presidential debate had descended into insults and interruptions.
The election will be held on 3rd November this year. ENDS.
