ABC News Chief Anchor George Stephanopoulos will anchor the event — “The President and the People” — from the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia airing at 9 p.m. ET. The forum will provide uncommitted voters, the opportunity to ask the president their questions on issues affecting Americans from the coronavirus pandemic and economic recovery to protests for racial justice and climate change.

The town hall comes as both presidential candidates say they are counting on taking the Keystone State in November. Tump won Pennsylvania in 2016 by a margin of 0.7% — the narrowest difference in a presidential election for the state since 1840.
