Biden Agrees To Two Debates With Trump Under Certain Conditions

President Joe Biden has finally agreed to debate Donald Trump after the former president goaded him for months, with Biden’s campaign making the announcement on Wednesday.

In a video posted on social media, Biden not only accepted Trump’s challenge but also mocked him over his ongoing legal problems.

“Donald Trump lost two debates to me in 2020, since then, he hasn’t shown up for a debate,” Biden said in a post on Twitter. “Now he’s acting like he wants to debate me again. Well, make my day, pal. Let’s pick the dates, Donald. I hear you’re free on Wednesdays,” Biden said.

Later Wednesday morning, Trump accepted Biden’s challenge.

His full statement:

“Crooked Joe Biden is the WORST debater I have ever faced – He can’t put two sentences together! Crooked is also the WORST President in the history of the United States, by far. It’s time for a debate so that he can explain to the American People his highly destructive Open Border Policy, new and ridiculous EV Mandates, the allowance of Crushing Inflation, High Taxes, and his really WEAK Foreign Policy, which is allowing the World to “Catch on Fire.” I am Ready and Willing to Debate Crooked Joe at the two proposed times in June and September. I would strongly recommend more than two debates and, for excitement purposes, a very large venue, although Biden is supposedly afraid of crowds – That’s only because he doesn’t get them. Just tell me when, I’ll be there. ‘Let’s get ready to Rumble!!!’ “

The first debate will be held in Atlanta and hosted by CNN. A second debate will take place in September and be hosted by ABC News.

Biden’s campaign chair, Jennifer O’Malley Dillon, explained the “conditions” under which Biden agreed to debate, The New York Times reported. Two debates before early voting begins, with no crowds, no Robert F. Kennedy Jr., no interruptions, and with normal broadcast network anchors.

“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,” she said. “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.”
