The town hall, which NBC News said would be outside and socially distanced, will take the place of the previously scheduled debate between Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden. Biden is scheduled to appear in a separate town hall event at the same time.
The Commission on Presidential Debates canceled last week’s debate after Trump refused to participate in a virtual version of it.
ABC News announced last week that it would host a town hall event with Biden in Philadelphia on Thursday. It will be hosted by ABC’s George Stephanopoulos.
NBC’s Savannah Guthrie will moderate the town hall with Trump.
