President Donald Trump said Thursday that he would not participate in a virtual debate, minutes after the organizing commission announced that next week's event would be virtual to protect the health of those involved.

"I'm not going to do a virtual debate," Trump, who was diagnosed last week with the coronavirus, said in an interview on Fox Business, claiming the Commission on Presidential Debates is "trying to protect" Democratic nominee Joe Biden.

"I'm not going to waste my time with a virtual debate. That's not what debating is all about. You sit behind a computer and do a debate, that is ridiculous," Trump continued. He indicated that his campaign was not informed of the decision before it was announced.

Biden's campaign indicated that the former vice president would participate.

"Vice President Biden looks forward to speaking directly to the American people and comparing his plan for bringing the country together and building back better with Donald Trump's failed leadership on the coronavirus that has thrown the strong economy he inherited into the worst downturn since the Great Depression," campaign spokesperson Kate Bedingfield said in a statement.

France is holding a national tribute to Samuel Paty, the history teacher murdered outside his school because of a class he gave on freedom of speech in which he showed cartoons of the Prophet Mohammed. We spoke to Gabriel Lattanzio, an English teacher at a secondary school on the outskirts of Paris. For him, the fact that some people including parents felt they could speak out against Paty shows that teachers are "discredited". Lattanzio says the government vowing full support for teachers is not enough. "I feel like I'm on the frontline of making kids better," he told us.
