Look for the eel-like smarmy Clinton campaign to cancel as many if not all debates between Donald J.Trump and the presumptive nominee for the Democrats, Hillary Clinton.
The Clinton machine will try to stack the deck with pro-Clintonista debate moderators, it will make little difference.
Hillary’s record is one of total failure, while Mr. Trumps is one of success.
Hillary will not have an economic plan that will create jobs while Trump has spent most of his adult life doing so.
Does anyone seriously believe Hillary can hold her own against Donald Trump?
Hillary Clinton will forever be known as the “Butcher of Benghazi,” and Obama’s dupe for following his illegal treasonous directions.
Not to worry, there will be debates no matter how badly Mrs. Clinton wants to avoid them.
If Hofstra University decides to follow suit, it’s simply a matter of Mr. Trump opening up one of his myriad luxury properties, and the show will go on !
Four debates are scheduled: Three for the presidential candidates and one for the vice-presidential candidates.
The first debate will be divided into six time segments of approximately 15 minutes each on major topics to be selected by the moderator and announced at least one week before the debate.
*Wayne State University in Ohio has withdrawn from holding the First Presidential debate due to budget issues.
Location: Longwood University, Farmville, VA
The Vice Presidential debate will be divided into nine time segments of approximately 10 minutes each.
Second presidential debate
The second presidential debate will take the form of a town meeting, in which half of the questions will be posed directly by citizen participants and the other half will be posed by the moderator based on topics of broad public interest as reflected in social media and other sources.
The format for the third debate will be identical to the first presidential debate.(Source)

A university in Ohio is withdrawing as the host of the first presidential debate of the general election season over safety concerns, according to Dayton Daily News.
Wright State University President David Hopkins said that fears in the wake of recent terrorist attacks and the rising cost of security prompted the school to drop out from hosting the Sept. 26 debate.
“I can’t assure the safety of our students and the community,” Hopkins said.
Hopkins noted that the local community and state weren’t able to raise the funds to cover the $8 million needed to put on the debate.
The Commission on Presidential Debates said the debate will instead be held at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y.
Hofstra had been chosen as an alternate location for the upcoming debate cycle.
It hosted presidential debates in both 2008 and 2012.
The Sept. 26 debate, the first of this year’s cycle, will be the highly anticipated first in-person showdown between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton.
