Biden campaign lodges 'health and safety' objection over VP debate

Later Friday, Trump campaign spokesman Tim Murtaugh told POLITICO the campaign would work to find middle ground.

“We are open to more space between the candidates, which we will be happy to negotiate,” Murtaugh said.

Several members of the Trump family who were in the audience for the first debate did not wear masks even though they were supposed to do so inside the venue. When a doctor from the Cleveland Clinic approached the Trump family, offering them masks, they declined and no further action was taken.

Trump, first lady Melania Trump and senior aide Hope Hicks have since tested positive for the virus and are in quarantine. The positive tests came after Trump chided Biden during the debate for wearing a mask.

The Biden campaign has taken extraordinary measures to keep its candidate and campaign staffers virus-free. Those who traveled to the debate with Biden earlier this week underwent Covid-19 testing on Friday after learning of the president’s positive test results.
