Events: Presidential Mock Debate: Trump vs. Sanders vs. Gary Johnson

The NYC Political Forum is hosting a mock debate next Saturday.

Volunteers will take on the roles of Donald Trump, Bernie Sanders and – no, not Hillary Clinton – libertarian candidate Gary Johnson.

“The debate will in a “townhall” format, allowing the meetup attendees, as the “townhall audience” members, to directly ask questions to any of the candidates.”
