President Donald Trump will take questions from voters live and ABC News will be there to show his instant reaction.
The Walt Disney-owned news unit plans to air a live town hall with President Trump and undecided voters on Tuesday, September 15, at 9 p.m. just seven weeks before Election Day. The event will be televised by ABC and streamed by ABC News Live, and is the latest in a recent series of big gets by the news operation. George Stephanopoulos, the networks chief anchor, will anchor the proceedings, which will include voters both in person and on a virtual basis.
Such an event can be a tricky one for a news outlet to handle. NBC News in September of 2016 held a town-hall style forum in which former anchor Matt Lauer held forth separately with both Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton under time constraints in a broadcast put out via NBC and MSNBC. The event drew 14.7 million viewers across both networks, but Lauer and the news outlet drew criticism for the way the anchor questioned both candidates.

Don’t do it!
He might be planning it, but why would President Trump agree to this obvious setup... unless he just enjoys the challenge of bitch-slapping the libtard filth up close and personally.
don’t, unless Biden is there.
Biden says that’s COVID risk
It’s a trap!

Can someone post the Admiral Akbar “its a trap!”?
Let Larry Elder conduct the townhall
It’s a tarp.
(But for whom?)
Not a good idea.
We know George will pack the “independents” with Leftist committed ringers who will try to deliver loaded zingers to try to get the worst & least thought ought answers from Trump.
A TownHall wirh Hannity would be better.
He’s doing it to highlight the fact that Biden has done none of these.
“I’m not afraid to face a hostile interviewer, Joe. Are you?”
At your service..................
He asked Hillary Clinton substantive questions.
How does a field mouse cigared by cliton Trap a Lion of the greatest magnitude?
Biden’s town hall would have to be pre-recorded and done over and over again to get it right. And Biden would need a teleprompter and pre-screened and prepared questions, in a specific order, even in such an environment.
