Spot gold tried to gain a foothold above 1880 in the Asian session on Tuesday, breaking through $1,885 earlier and hitting as high as 1887.
Gold rallied strongly yesterday, rising $20 to break through the key 1,880 level as the dollar retreated from a two-month high ahead of this week’s US presidential debate, although a rebound in equities capped gains.
The first presidential debate of the 2020 presidential election will be held at Case Western Reserve University in Ohio from 9 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. local time on Sept. 29. President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden will go head-to-head.
The first presidential debate will focus on six topics, including the past of Trump and Biden, novel Coronavirus pandemic, Supreme Court Appointment, racial discrimination, economy and integrity elections. The six topics correspond to six debate sessions, each of which lasts 15 minutes. In each session, the moderator will first ask questions about the topic of the debate. Trump and Biden will each have two minutes to answer questions, with the remaining time for free debate.
Analysts say the exchange over tax avoidance is expected to be one of the inevitable issues.
The New York Times earlier reported that the Trump family has lost money in several businesses and is under severe financial pressure with more than $400 million in debt, most of which is due in four years. The report also noted that Mr Trump paid $750m in federal income taxes in his first year in office. In the previous 15 years, he had paid no personal income tax for 10.
The data also show that since becoming a presidential candidate, Trump has received large sums of money from lobbyists, politicians and foreign officials, benefiting his personal business operations.
According to the Hill on September 28, Nancy Pelosi, speaker of the US House of Representatives, launched a scathing attack on Donald Trump.
In an interview with MSNBC, Pelosi described Mr. Trump’s large payments to foreign governments as puzzling.
Pelosi added that it was unclear who Mr. Trump’s creditors were and whether the debt involved other countries, which could have implications for Mr. Trump, and that the issue should be viewed in a national security context.
Trump took to Twitter on September 28 to respond to a report in the New York Times that he had paid no federal income tax for most of the past two decades, saying he had paid millions of dollars in taxes and had little debt.
