US President Donald Trump and his opponent Joe Biden are arguing over strategies for their final TV debate for the US election 2020.

Trump’s campaign accused organizers of helping the Democrat this week by neglecting out foreign policy as a topic.

Joe Biden’s campaign accused Trump of trying to avoid queries regarding the coronavirus pandemic.

About Donald Trump’s campaign

The President’s camp sent a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates in which it demanded topics to be finalized for the final primetime duel this Thursday.

In the letter, Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien mentioned that the campaigns had already agreed foreign policy would be the focus of the third debate.

Moderator and NBC News correspondent Kristen Welker announced these topics last week: American families, race in America, climate change, national security, and leadership.

Republican Trump described Ms. Welker as a “radical Democrat” during a rally on Monday afternoon in Prescott. He said that she would be “no good”.

Mr. Stepien accused Mr. Biden of being “desperate to avoid conversations about his own foreign policy record” and the commission of trying to “insulate Biden from his own history”.

“The Commission’s pro-Biden antics have turned the entire debate season into a fiasco and it is little wonder why the public has lost faith in its objectivity,” he wrote.

He also accused Biden of attempting to avoid questions regarding purported emails from his son, Hunter.

About Joe Biden’s campaign

On the other hand, Democratic challenger Joe Biden’s camp shot back at Trump.

“The campaigns and the Commission agreed months ago that the debate moderator would choose the topics,” said national press secretary TJ Ducklo.

“The Trump campaign is lying about that now because Donald Trump is afraid to face more questions about his disastrous Covid response.

“As usual, the president is more concerned with the rules of a debate than he is getting a nation in crisis the help it needs.”
