2020 Presidential debate – Watch LIVE as Trump and Biden face-off for final time before election – how to watch TONIGHT

DONALD Trump and Joe Biden will face-off for the last time tonight at the final presidential debate before next month's election.

The pair were scheduled to meet on October 15 days after the President's coronavirus diagnosis, but he pulled out after being told the head-to-head would have to be held virtually.

Tonight's clash will therefore be the second and final debate the pair take part in before Election Day on November 3rd.

Looking to avoid the the kind of interruptions that marred the chaotic first meeting between the pair, tonight's NBC hosted debate in Nashville will feature mute buttons that stop each candidate talking outside the two minutes they are allotted to respond to questions.

We'll see how that goes…

You can watch the debate here, LIVE on this page, by clicking on the video link above when it begins at 9pm Eastern time (2am UK time).

We will also be live blogging all the build-up to the debate, as well as the debate itself, which you can follow in real time below.

    TWITTER SAYS 'NO EVIDENCE' OF HACK ON TRUMP'S TWITTER

    Twitter have said that there is “no evidence” of a hack on President Trump's Twitter account.

    Security expert Victor Gevers claimed he accessed the President's Twitter account, after guessing that his password was “maga2020!”.

    However, Twitter said in a statement: “We've seen no evidence to corroborate this claim, including from the article published in the Netherlands today. 

    “We proactively implemented account security measures for a designated group of high-profile, election-related Twitter accounts in the United States, including federal branches of government.”

    NYC TO JOIN SEATTLE, PORTLAND IN SUIT OVER FEDERAL FUNDING

    New York City will join Seattle and Portland, Oregon, in filing a lawsuit over President Donald's Trump's threatened withdrawal of federal funds from cities that permit anarchy,” city officials said Thursday.

    In a couple of hours in Seattle we will file a complaint that is pushing back on and seeks the courts judgment on the Trump administrations decisions to withhold funding from cities that they have without cause and without law determined to be anarchist cities, New York City Corporation Counsel Jim Johnson said.

    The Justice Department last month identified New York City, Portland and Seattle as three cities that could have federal funding slashed under a memorandum by Trump that sought to identify localities that permit anarchy, violence and destruction in American cities.

    Officials in all three cities criticized the designation at the time.

    DEMOCRATS BOYCOTT BARRET VOTE

    Senate Judiciary Democrats have decided to boycott the committee meeting to confirm Trump's Supreme Court nomination, Amy Coney Barnet.

    They put posters of people who have been helped by the Affordable Care Act in their place.

    It has been widely suggested that the Supreme Court pick will cast the deciding vote to end the policy.

    Donald Trump's Twitter account was allegedly hacked by a researcher who claimed he guessed his “maga2020!” password.

    BIDEN PROPOSES PANEL TO STUDY REFORMING US JUDICIARY

    Joe Biden said that if elected he would put together a bipartisan commission of scholars to examine reforming a federal judiciary he called “out of whack”.

    The Democraticpresidential nominee noted there are alternatives to consider besides expanding the Supreme Court.

    The former vice president said he would create a bipartisan commission of constitutional scholars including Democrats, Republicans, liberals and conservatives to review the US judiciary.

    “I will ask them to, over 180 days, come back to me with recommendations as to how to reform the court system because it is getting out of whack, the way in which it's being handled and it's not about court-packing,” Biden added.

    “There's a number of alternatives that … go well beyond packing,” Biden said.

    MUTE BUTTON

    President Donald Trump and Democrat Joe Biden will have their microphones cut off in Thursday’s debate while their rival delivers their opening two-minute answer to each of the debate topics.

    The final debate features a mute button, say organizers CPD.

    This is to stop the debate degenerating in to a pointless shout-fest like the first one.

    60 MINUTES FURORE

    Donald Trump has threatened to release what he claims is a “full, unedited” interview by “vicious” Lesley Stahl to combat the alleged 60 Minutes “takeout” attempt.

    This morning Trump said “I will soon be giving a first in television history full, unedited preview of the vicious attempted “takeout” interview of me by Lesley Stahl of @60Minutes,” the president tweeted.

    “Watch her constant interruptions & anger. Compare my full, flowing and “magnificently brilliant” answers to their “Q’s”.”

    The president sat down with Stahl for 45 minutes on Tuesday – but suddenly ended the interview after being infuriated by her tough questioning, according to reports.

    Trump also threatened to post the White House's own video of the interview earlier this week, before the CBS News program is scheduled to air on Sunday night.
