Peaceful transfer, I absolutely want it, says Trump at town hall meeting

Trump made the claim Thursday under questioning during an NBC News town hall event in Miami.

The US president downplayed the importance of masks with the US reeling under coronavirus pandemic, saying that there are two opinions on it.

Despite the $180 million disadvantage, the Trump campaign said it is confident they will have enough resources to sustain the effort to reelect the President. The TODAY host pointed out that Trump had retweeted an insane claim that Joe Biden, allegedly tried to have SEAL Team Six murdered, which is reckless at best. "We did the right thing", adding, "You can not continue to let this go on with the lockdowns".

"I know nothing about QAnon", Trump responded.

Guthrie asked Trump about denouncing white supremacy after the president balked at the opportunity during the debate with Biden in Cleveland.

"On his much-touted 'fraud" in mail-in ballots, Trump said: "If the Federal Bureau of Investigation director doesn't think there's a tremendous problem with mail-in ballots, then he's not doing his job". "They fight it very hard". "It's a tiny percentage of my net worth".

He insisted that he didn't owe any money to Russian Federation or any "sinister people". "I know about Antifa and I know about the radical left and I know how violent they are and how vicious they are".

The town halls offered a different format for the two candidates to present themselves to voters, after the pair held a chaotic and combative first debate late last month.

Haeck said she raised her question in response to recent "attacks" on transgender rights, such as bans on military service, weakened protections, and removed transgender terms from government websites.

Biden vowed to say before Election Day whether he will support expanding the number of justices on the Supreme Court if Democrats win the presidency, the Senate and hold the House after November.

"It could say that I'm a lousy candidate, that I didn't do a good job", Biden said.

Trump also defended his efforts, and those of Senate Republicans, to quickly confirm Barrett to the U.S. Supreme Court.

The town hall took place outdoors at the Pérez Art Museum.

Thursday's scheduled debate was canceled after Trump, while he was being treated for COVID-19, said he would not agree to an event where he and Biden appeared remotely.
