Live updates: Trump, Biden to compete in first 2024 presidential debate

President Biden and former president Donald Trump face off in a highly anticipated debate Thursday night hosted by CNN in Atlanta. The stakes in the debate, which is being held unusually early in the election cycle, are enormous for both men as they try to shape the narrative of the race and sway undecided voters. Biden and Trump have agreed to a second debate on Sept. 10, bypassing a decades-old tradition of three fall meetings organized by the bipartisan Commission on Presidential Debates.
