NBC, MSNBC to Host Military Forum With Trump, Clinton

By Mark Joyella 

NBC has announced plans for a national security forum with Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, to air on both the broadcast network and MSNBC in prime time on Sept. 7. The event will be hosted in New York City by IAVA, the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America.

“IAVA is proud to lead this historic event for our veterans community and all Americans,” said IAVA founder and chief executive Paul Rieckhoff. “On the cusp of the 15th Anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, New York is a fitting stage to give voice to American veterans and service members that are all too often shut out of our political debate.”

The candidates will appear back-to-back, and will each address issues of national security, the military and veterans affairs. The candidates will take questions from an audience of military veterans and active service members.
