Today would have been Forum Day

Today, Sunday, April 26 would have been Irish American Presidential Forum day at Fordham University in Manhattan. But of course the world was turned upside down by the Covid-19 pandemic. A series of questions were prepared some months ago for presidential candidates. At that early stage there was still a large group of Democratic hopefuls but the field has since been whittled down to who is now the actual Democratic Party presidential candidate, former vice president Joe Biden. President Trump will carry the Republican banner into the November election. Forum organizers remain intent on presenting their questions to both candidates at some point, and in some form, between now and November.
