After Biden Fires 1 Demand at Trump – Donald Calls Joe’s Bluff and America Cheers

Donald Trump has repeatedly called on Joe Biden to debate him. Trump avoided debating Republicans during the GOP primaries. His lead was so strong, that he spent the time reaching more voters instead.

With the general election fast approaching, Trump said he’d debate Biden “anytime, anywhere.”

It was unknown whether Biden would take the bait. Many believe Joe is suffering enough cognitive decline that he’d struggle in a head-to-head fight with Trump. Biden said he was willing to have two debates with the Republican. But the requirements might have tipped Joe’s hand.

From Daily Caller:
President Joe Biden proposed two dates to debate former President Donald Trump Wednesday morning, with a list of guardrails including no live audience, according to The New York Times…

Later Wednesday morning, Biden said that he “received and accepted” a debate invitation from CNN scheduled for June 27, before telling Trump, “anywhere, any time, any place.” Trump accepted the invitation as well, setting the stage for the first debate in the general election.

Biden is only willing to debate Trump, so long as there are no live audiences and only on news networks that favor the Democrat. Why would Biden want this, unless he is hoping to avoid looking foolish in the face of Trump’s jabs? Or perhaps he is hoping CNN or other liberal networks will edit the broadcast, using the delay in live broadcasts.

In either case, it is possible that he put these requirements in place to scare away Trump. Maybe Biden doesn’t want to debate Trump, so he is making the prospect unattractive to the former president.

But it seems like Trump is not scared of anything Joe can throw at him.

From Fox News:
Former President Trump accepted President Biden’s offer to debate him on television in June and September.

After Trump said he was in, Biden said in a post on X that he “received and accepted an invitation” from CNN for a debate on June 27…

When asked for comment, Trump told Fox News Digital that he will accept and “will be there.” The Republican added that he is “looking forward to being in beautiful Atlanta.”

Despite possible attempts by Joe to sour Trump on debates, the Republican accepted the offer of two debates. The two candidates will tentatively debate each other in June and September of this year.

These debates might defy historical norms, especially if audiences are not allowed to attend. It is unknown how Biden will perform, even without a live audience. Biden frequently fumbles with pre-written statements and speeches. It is likely his handlers will have the questions ahead of time, so they can write his responses.

Otherwise, there is no way Joe will be able to survive these debates.

Key Takeaways:

  • Biden challenged Trump to debates, with specific conditions.
  • The Democrat wants no live audience and will debate on liberal networks.
  • Despite these requirements, Trump agreed to debate Joe twice.
