The first of three presidential debates between Donald Trump and Joe Biden is Tuesday, Sept. 29, at Case Western Reserve University and Cleveland Clinic in Cleveland, Ohio. The 90-minute debate begins at 8 p.m. CT with moderator Chris Wallace, a FOX News anchor.

The debate will include six 15-minute segments “dedicated to topics announced in advance in order to encourage deep discussion of the leading issues facing the country,” according to the Commission on Presidential Debates. Those topics are: Trump’s and Biden’s records, the Supreme Court, COVID-19, the economy, race and violence in U.S. cities and the integrity of the election.
