The Trump re-election campaign has made an astonishing request of Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, the moderator of Tuesday night’s first presidential debate, just hours before the event is set to begin.
No coronavirus death statistics.
The number of coronavirus deaths in the United States is now well over 200,000. Monday night the total number of coronavirus deaths broke one million.
The Trump campaign does not want the American people to be told this.
The Atlantic’s Edward-Isaac Dovere, citing remarks from the Biden campaign’s Kate Bedingfield, was the first to report the news.
.@KBeds of the Biden campaign says that the Trump campaign asked as a condition that Chris Wallace not mention the number of COVID deaths in the debate tonight
