Donald Trump accepts Joe Biden’s debate challenge ahead of the US election.


Donald Trump accepts Joe Biden’s debate challenge:

On Wednesday, Republican opponent Donald Trump agreed to participate in two televised debates in June and September, responding immediately to US President Joe Biden’s appeal to “make my day”.

Instead, Biden chose two audience-free debates hosted by journalistic groups over the three debates suggested by the bipartisan US Election Debates Commission.

“Donald Trump lost two debates against me in 2020. Since then, he has not appeared for a debate. Now he acts as if he wants to debate me again. “So, make my day, pal,” Biden said in a video on X.

“I’ll even do it twice.”

Adding, “So let’s pick the dates Donald,” Biden mocked Trump’s current criminal hush money trial in New York, which includes a midweek break. I’ve heard Wednesdays are your free days.

Debates are a standard feature of every US presidential election campaign, and Democrats and Republicans have been arguing about them for months. However, there is some doubt over whether they will take place.

Trump declared that he was “ready to Rumble!!!” after dodging debates with his Republican primary opponents this year.

“I am ready and willing to debate Crooked Joe at the two proposed times in June and September,” Trump stated on his TruthSocial platform.

Trump labeled Biden “the WORST debater have ever faced,” and demanded “very large venue, despite Biden’s alleged fear of crowds.” In letter delivered concurrently, Biden’s team informed the US Election Debates Commission that its proposal for three debates in September and October had been rejected. In contrast, Biden “plans to participate in debates hosted by news organizations,” according to Jen O’Malley Dillon, the campaign’s chief of staff. She went on to say that the decades-old system is “out of step with changes in the structure of our elections and the interests of voters.”

The first one-on-one debate was set for late June, “after President Biden returns from meeting with world leaders at the G7 Summit and Donald Trump’s criminal trial in New York is likely to be over,” according to the Biden campaign.

The Biden campaign indicated that the second event, slated for early September, would take place in time to influence early voting but would not prohibit candidates from campaigning during the “critical late September and October period.”

To prevent candidates from talking over one another during debates, the letter proposed tight guidelines, such as candidates’ microphones being switched off after the allotted time had gone.
