The network announced the news on Thursday about the Oct. 15 event after President Trump said that he would not be willing to participate in a virtual debate.
“The second presidential debate will take the form of a town meeting, in which the candidates would participate from separate remote locations,” it said in a statement.
Trump told Fox Business that he was unwilling to participate in a debate with that format.
“No, I’m not going to waste my time on a virtual debate,” he said. “That’s not what debating is all about. You sit behind a computer and do a debate. It’s ridiculous, and then they cut you off whenever you want.”
