On Thursday morning, Trump called into Fox Business to speak with Maria Bartiromo about his coronavirus symptoms, quarantine, and his upcoming debate with Joe Biden, which is scheduled for October 15.

The Trump campaign said they were open to two more debates, while the Biden campaign only wants one more debate.

The debate was due to be hosted by the Adrienne Arsht Centre for the Performing Arts in Miami on October 15 at 9pm ET (2am in the UK).

An internal FEMA memo leaked yesterday has indicated that 34 people linked to the White House have now tested positive for the coronavirus.
