US President Donald Trump has said that he will not take part in a virtual debate with his election rival Joe Biden.
Mr Trump, who represents the Republican party, is aiming to be re-elected as president in November.
He was scheduled to debate Democratic party candidate, Mr Biden on Thursday 15 October in Miami.
However, the format of the debate has been changed after Trump was diagnosed with COVID-19.
The Commission, which make decisions on how the presidential debates work, said the change to a virtual discussion was to “protect the health and safety of all involved”.
However, Mr Trump spoke to a TV station shortly after the announcement and said, “I’m not going to do a virtual debate.”
He followed that up by saying, “you sit behind a computer and do a debate? That’s ridiculous. And then they cut you off whenever they want.”
The first debate was described as ‘chaotic’ when the two rivals argued and shouted over each other.
