Trump: ‘I’m not gonna waste my time on a virtual debate’

President Donald Trump said he wouldn’t participate in a virtual debate after the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) announced that next week’s second presidential debate would be held virtually, in an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo.

“I beat him easily in the first debate, according to the polls that I’ve seen. But, I’ve beat him easily, I felt I beat him easily, I think he felt it too. He wouldn’t answer any questions and he had the protection of Chris Wallace all night long. I thought Chris Wallace was a disaster,” Trump said.

“But I beat him in the first debate. The second debate we have a never-Trumper as a host, but that’s ok because I’ll beat him in the second debate also, but I’m not gonna do a virtual debate.”

The CPD cited health and safety concerns led to their decision. The President tested positive for COVID-19 last Thursday and received treatment over the weekend at Walter Reed Military Medical Hospital. He returned to the White House on Monday and his doctors say he’s on the mend and has been asymptomatic for days.

“I’m not gonna waste my time on a virtual debate,” Trump said. “That’s not what debating’s all about. You sit behind a computer and do a debate. It’s ridiculous and then they cut you off whenever they want.”

Mavericks Owner Mark Cuban Buys Entire Texas Town

‘No Plans Yet’, Cuban Says About His Purchase of Abandoned Texas Town of Mustang

Forget becoming Mayor of a town, Dallas Mavericks owner Mark Cuban is now the owner of a town.  Cuban reportedly purchased the entire town of Mustang, Texas. The town is virtually abandoned with no current residents, “and it’s been several years since the last two businesses, Wispers Cabaret strip club and Lion’s Den adult bookstore, operated” reports NBC News.

In a brief email explaining the purchase to NBC News on Friday, Cuban wrote “did it to help out a friend. No plans yet!” The town of Mustang is roughly 65 miles south of American Airlines Center, the home of the Dallas Mavericks.

According to Mike Turner, president of Dallas real estate firm J. Elmer Turner, the town had been for sale on the market about four years, listed after the principal owner Marty Price became ill and decided to sell.

Price was an attorney who died this past August; a devoted basketball fan with Mavericks floor seats. “Mark Cuban stepped up, and it was a natural for him to buy it” Turner told NBC News. “With his resources and imagination, I’m sure there are endless possibilities.”

Turner did not reveal the final sales price but admitted it closed last month for less than the $4 million asking price. Jerry Newsom, chief of the volunteer fire department in the neighboring town of Angus, told NBC Dallas-Fort Worth “we’re excited to have him as our neighbor here, and we’re excited for the growth and the potential it has.”
