The Commission on Presidential Debates announced the six topics which President Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden will discuss in the final debate on Friday.

The topics included “Fighting COVID-19,” “American Families,” “Race in America,” “Climate Change,” “National Security” and “Leadership.”

Although the commission suggested that they might be implementing more rules after the last debate, they did not provide any further details.

In a statement released by the commission after the last, chaotic presidential debate, they wrote,  “The Commission on Presidential Debates sponsors televised debates for the benefit of the American electorate. Last night’s debate made clear that additional structure should be added to the format of the remaining debates to ensure a more orderly discussion of the issues.”
