The topics for the first presidential debate between Republican President Donald Trump and former Vice President and Democratic nominee Joe Biden were posted Tuesday. They were selected by Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, who will moderate the debate next week.

The Commission on Presidential Debates, the nonprofit and nonpartisan group that sponsors presidential debates, posted the selected topics to be discussed at the debate, which will be held Tuesday, Sept. 29, at Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland. The topics include:

  • The Trump and Biden Records
  • The Supreme Court
  • COVID-19
  • The Economy
  • Race and Violence in our Cities
  • The Integrity of the Election
Each of these topics will be discussed in six 15-minute segments, “to encourage deep discussion of the leading issues facing the country.” There is no particular order of discussion, and the debate may begin with any of these topics.

The debate will begin at 6 p.m. PT and continue for 90 minutes without commercial breaks.

The selected topics reflect recent polling on what Americans view as the the top issues facing the country.
