Moderator Chris Wallace of FOX News has shared the preliminary list of topics for the first presidential debate in Cleveland, Ohio. Former Vice President Joe Biden and President Donald Trump will tackle a number of topics including the state of the economy, a possible U.S. Supreme Court nomination, their political records, election security, police brutality and the COVID-19 pandemic.
In recent weeks, all of these topics have been talking points for both candidates. Most recently, the two parties went head-to-head regarding a possible U.S. Supreme Court nomination. Before passing away, former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg reportedly asked that her seat not be filled until after November's election. However, it appears that the Republican party will do so anyway.
"I think it'll be on Friday or Saturday and we want to pay respect," Trump said when asked about when he would unveil his selection for the U.S. Supreme Court.
"And I think the respect we should wait for the services to be over for Justice Ginsburg. So we're looking at probably Friday or maybe Saturday."
Among the list of potential nominees is Kentucky State Attorney General Daniel Cameron. Cameron is currently at the center of one of the nation's most high-profile cases. Today, he is expected to provide an update regarding possible charges against the officers involved in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor. With this announcement looming, the topic of police violence will likely be a hot button issue at next week's debate as well.
Trump and Biden will have a total of 90 minutes to discuss the U.S. Supreme Court, police brutality and much more with Wallace on September 29 at 9 p.m. ET in Cleveland, Ohio.
