Primetime Battle NBC and ABC News: Trump and Biden will participate in separate town halls at the same time

President Trump will participate in an NBC News town hall held outdoors in Miami on Thursday, the network announced, setting up an evening of competing events featuring the Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden.

Biden previously announced that he would take part in an ABC News town hall the same evening in Philadelphia, which will air at the same time as Trump’s town hall and will run for 90 minutes.

Members of the media and activist community have taken to social media to voice their dismay at NBC News hosting a town hall for President Donald Trump during the same time slot as Democratic Presidential Candidate Joe Biden, with some calling for a boycott.

The president is holding rallies daily this week, including an event in Iowa on Wednesday evening. He will also be in North Carolina for a campaign event in the afternoon on Thursday prior to the town hall.

Biden recently traveled to Pennsylvania over the weekend and made stops in Ohio and Florida at the beginning of this week.
