Fox News anchor Chris Wallace said President Trump did not arrive in Cleveland ahead of the first presidential debate in time to get tested in Ohio before the event took place. Wallace, who served as the moderator for the event, said the president "didn't arrive until Tuesday afternoon" in Cleveland to face off against Democratic nominee Joe Biden. The time of the debate was Tuesday at 9 p.m.The timing of the arrival did not allow enough time for the president to be tested for the virus there and receive a result, according to the anchor. "The difference was I arrived on Sunday, you arrived on Monday,” Wallace told fellow Fox News colleague Bill Hemmer.“[The Trump family] didn’t arrive until Tuesday afternoon. So for them to get tested, there wouldn’t have been enough time to have the test and have the debate at 9:00 that night. They didn’t show up until 3:00, 4:00, 5:00 in the afternoon. There was an honor system when it came to the people that came into the hall from the two campaigns.”
