Biden, Trump Town Halls Host Live Stream of Town Halls
Former Vice President Joe Biden hosts a town hall on health care at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst on Monday evening, while President Trump goes to New Hampshire for a town hall with Republican congressional candidates.
Biden will talk about the 2016 presidential election.
He’ll also announce a new campaign for opposing “areas of non-enforceable voter suppression laws that come through at the state level.”
On Friday, Biden joined a chorus of Democrats who said “monkey this up” by reprising a debate moment from the final presidential debate: asking Donald Trump if he knew whether or not Trump University cheated students. But he threw in a layer of drama when he reminded Trump that the question had come up during their debate.
“You said your students came from the top of society and they were the best and the brightest and it turns out, many of them didn’t,” Biden said, mentioning Trump’s “top of society” claim. He then pressed: “Is that a fact?”
Trump attempted to play down any connection. “I don’t remember that one,” he said, adding: “I think a lot of the people paid.”
“See, he’s an experienced debater,” Biden said as the debate concluded.
The last leg of Biden’s two-stop tour comes at the UMass campus. He’ll meet town hall-style with voters, and the events will be live-streamed.
Also live-streaming the event will be the local WMUR-TV affiliate, which will tout the town hall event on its 6:30, 11:30 and 11:30 PM newscasts in the area. It will also have live coverage on its Facebook page.
Trump is scheduled to be back in New Hampshire for two more town halls, at 2 and 7 PM Eastern (No TV coverage on Fox News Channel) before finishing his day in Kentucky.
He’ll hold his first two interviews since the election — today on Tucker Carlson’s Fox News Channel show and again on ABC’s “This Week” — while pressing the White House for a new investigation into Clinton’s private email server.
At both the town halls, he’ll chat with supporters about his plans for health care, taxes, infrastructure, trade and other issues. The town halls are part of his strategy to tout the actual economic progress his administration has made.
