Fox News Channel gives Axios readers this look behind tonight's virtual town hall with President Trump, "America Together: Returning to Work" — 7–9pm ET from the Lincoln Memorial, with Trump answering viewer questions from 7:15 to 8:45.

What to expect: President Trump and the co-moderators, Martha MacCallum and Bret Baier, will be socially distanced, with a virtual audience. Fox says 1,000+ viewer submissions have come in by email, Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

MacCallum, anchor and executive editor of "The Story," said:

  • "We will hear from Americans across the country, who want answers about their businesses, their jobs, and what the future holds. From medicine and vaccines to our relationship with China, COVID-19 has forced big questions."

Baier, chief political anchor and anchor and executive editor of "Special Report," said:

  • "Our last town hall with President Trump [in March] in Scranton, Pennsylvania, had solid audience questions. ... If we can again cut through the noise and get to substance with tough but fair questions, we will be successful again."
