Trailing Trump Tweets End to Stimulus Talks

With opponent Joe Biden leading polls by 14 points, President Donald Trump tweeted his determination to attend a scheduled Oct. 15 debate, despite the fact that he could still be contagious with COVID-19. Trump, who was hospitalized for three days, also sent stocks tumbling by 2 percent yesterday when he abruptly ended talks on any new pandemic stimulus until “after I win” the election — though he later promised to immediately approve another round of $1,200 checks for Americans. Meanwhile, Vice President Mike Pence and Sen. Kamala Harris will debate tonight after Pence agreed to precautionary plexiglass barriers.
