IT’S ON: Trump & Biden Agree to Two Debates

Former President Donald Trump and current President Joe Biden have agreed to hold two campaign debates. The first, scheduled for June 27, will air on CNN, while the second, scheduled for September 10, will be hosted by ABC. The agreement follows months of prodding by Trump, who has repeatedly insisted that he would meet “anytime, anywhere, anyplace” for the showdown. Biden, who previously cast doubt on the debates, now says he will attend.

“Crooked Joe Biden is the worst debater I have ever faced – he can’t put two sentences together,” Trump said in a statement to Fox News on Wednesday. “Crooked is also the worst president in the history of the United States, by far.”

The agreement breaks from more than thirty years of tradition. The two candidates decided their own timetable for the debates rather than adhering to the terms set by the Commission on Presidential Debates.

“It is time for a debate to take place – even if it has to be held through the offices of the Commission on Presidential Debates, which are totally controlled by Democrats and who, as people remember, got caught cheating with me with debate sound levels.”

In a letter sent to the commission Wednesday morning, the Biden campaign outlined a series of demands, including that the debates have no live audience, no third-party candidates, and that the debaters’ microphones be muted after their time expires.

“The debates should be conducted for the benefit of the American voters, watching on television and at home — not as entertainment for an in-person audience with raucous or disruptive partisans and donors, who consume valuable debate time with noisy spectacles of approval or jeering,” the Biden campaign wrote.

“As was the case with the original televised debates in 1960, a television studio with just the candidates and moderators is a better, more cost-efficient way to proceed: focused solely on the interests of voters,”

Both Biden and Trump have voiced dissatisfaction with the commission, but the two later agreed to allow the news networks to organize the debates.

Following the proposal, Biden said he had accepted an invitation from CNN to debate on the network before daring Trump to join him on the left-wing network. “Over to you, Donald,” he said.

Trump replied shortly after on Truth Social: “Let’s get ready to Rumble!!!”

The two candidates exchanged jabs ahead of next month’s planned debate, with Biden writing on X, “Trump says he’ll arrange his transportation. I’ll bring my plane, too. I plan on keeping it for another four years.”

Trump retorted,

“I’m ready to go…The dates that they proposed are fine…Let’s see if Joe can make it to the stand-up podium… The proposed June and early September dates are fully acceptable to me. I will provide my own transportation.”
