Biden and Trump agree to presidential debates in June on CNN and in September on ABC

83 Comments
By ZEKE MILLER, JILL COLVIN and JOSH BOAK

President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump on Wednesday agreed to hold two campaign debates — the first on June 27 hosted by CNN and the second on Sept 10 hosted by ABC — setting the stage for the first presidential face-off in just weeks.

The quick agreement on the timetable to meet followed the Democrat's announcement that he will not participate in fall presidential debates sponsored by the nonpartisan commission that has organized them for more than three decades. Biden's campaign instead proposed that media outlets directly organize the debates with the presumptive Democratic and Republican nominees, with the first to be held in late June and the second in September before early voting begins. Trump, in a post on his Truth Social site, said he was “Ready and Willing to Debate” Biden at the proposed times.

Hours later, Biden said he accepted an invitation from CNN to a debate on June 27, adding, “Over to you, Donald. As you said: anywhere, anytime, any place.” Trump said on Truth Social he'd be there, adding, “Let’s get ready to Rumble!!!”

And soon after they agreed to the second debate on ABC. Trump said on Truth Social it was his “great honor" to accept the debates.

Biden said he, too, had received and accepted the invitations. “Trump says he’ll arrange his own transportation. I’ll bring my plane, too. I plan on keeping it for another four years,” he wrote on X.

Still, the two sides appeared to be hold some differences on key questions of how to organize the debates, including agreeing on moderators and rules — some of the very questions that prompted the formation of the Commission on Presidential Debates in 1987.

Biden's campaign had proposed excluding third-party candidates, such as Robert F Kennedy Jr, from the debates outright. Under the debate commission’s rules, Kennedy or other third-party candidates could qualify if they secured ballot access sufficient to claim 270 Electoral Votes and polled at 15% or higher in a selection of national polls.

CNN said that the debate would be held in its Atlanta studios and that “no audience will be present.” It said moderators and other details would be announced later. The network held open the door to Kennedy's participation if he or any other candidate met polling and ballot access requirements similar to the commission's.

As recently as Wednesday morning, Trump expressed his desire for a large live audience.

“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,” Trump said. “Just tell me when, I’ll be there.”

Trump has been pushing for more debates and earlier debates, arguing voters should be able to see the two men face off well before early voting begins in September. He has repeatedly said he will debate Biden “anytime, anywhere, any place,” even proposing the two men face off outside the Manhattan courthouse where he is currently on criminal trial in a hush money case. He also has been taunting Biden with an empty lectern at some of his rallies.

Biden’s campaign has long held a grudge against the nonpartisan commission for failing to evenly apply its rules during the 2020 Biden-Trump matchups — most notably when it didn’t enforce its COVID-19 testing rules on Trump and his entourage — and Biden’s team has held talks with television networks and some Republicans about ways to circumvent the commission’s grip on presidential debates.

Biden campaign chair Jen O’Malley Dillon on Wednesday sent a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates to say that Biden’s campaign objected to the fall dates selected by the commission, which come after some Americans begin to vote, repeating a complaint also voiced by the Trump campaign. She also voiced frustrations over the rule violations and the commission's insistence on holding the debates before a live audience.

“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."

There was little love lost for the commission as well from Trump, who objected to technical issues at his first debate with Democrat Hillary Clinton in 2016 and was upset after a debate with Biden was canceled in 2020 after the Republican came down with COVID-19. The Republican National Committee had already promised not to work with commission on the 2024 contests.

The commission did not immediately respond to a request for comment on Wednesday.

The Trump campaign issued a statement on May 1 that objected to the scheduled debates by the commission, saying that the schedule “begins AFTER early voting” and that “this is unacceptable” because voters deserve to hear from the candidates before ballots are cast.

O’Malley Dillon said the debates "should be one-on-one, allowing voters to compare the only two candidates with any statistical chance of prevailing in the Electoral College – and not squandering debate time on candidates with no prospect of becoming President.”

Kennedy, in a statement, said Trump and Biden were “colluding to lock America into a head-to-head match-up that 70% say they do not want.”

“They are trying to exclude me from their debate because they are afraid I would win,” he said. "Keeping viable candidates off the debate stage undermines democracy.”

In teeing up the debates, both Biden and Trump traded barbs on social media — each claiming victory the last time they faced-off in 2020.

“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 X, the site formerly known as Twitter. "Now he’s acting like he wants to debate me again. Well, make my day, pal.”

Trump called Biden was the “WORST debater I have ever faced - He can’t put two sentences together!”

The Democratic president first indicated he would be willing to debate Trump during an interview with the radio host Howard Stern last month, telling him that “I am, somewhere. I don’t know when. But I’m happy to debate him.” He indicated again last week that he was preparing to debate, telling reporters as he was leaving a White House event: “Set it up.”

I think Biden has just given Trump the win. On his own, live mic? This should be fun.

Trump is also gaff prone but his supporters don't care what he does.

I don't understand the "No audience" rule. I can't remember that EVER being done since I've been watching presidential debates. Clearly, it's a fear based requirement. The Biden campaign is afraid of President Biden being in front of a live audience for a debate? What are they afraid of?

“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,"

Absolutely. It's not pro wrestling.

Trump can't win on substance because he's a dolt. It's all just nonsense pre-packaged throwaway lines like "Biden crime", "Crooked Joe", "Sleepy Joe", "witch hunt", or "radical Marxists". And made-up anecdotes.

Trump called Biden was the “WORST debater I have ever faced - He can’t put two sentences together!”

Totally false.

From the guy who can't remember Jimmy Carter's name, admires Hannibal Lecter, and who fantasizes that Sinatra advised him on his political career.

Looking forward to seeing Biden wipe the floor with this clown.

The Q-anon ppl, the Proud Boys, the KKK, etc., are wild about Trump. Add all of these odd balls together along with the Moral Majority, and you have to ask yourself if the U.S. is mentally competent enough to choose an effective leader.

When you think about it, candidates need to be more focused on enticing the mentally ill to vote for them, something which Trump (and the likes of Marjorie Taylor Greene)understands very well.

Unlikely. Trump does terrible in debates. Why do you think he declined to debate in the primaries.

On his own, live mic? This should be fun.

It certainly should be. Biden came out on top in the last debates, and I can't imagine things changing.

Trump is also gaff prone but his supporters don't care what he does.

He doesn't need to capture his supporters. He needs independents.

That's not obvious. You're just making up an excuse

Not me, Biden.

Read the transcript of his Time interview. He's all over the place.

Biden is, but he does have abortion and that’s all he has. Should be a breeze for Trump.

I hope, they keep Biden focused and to answer the questions that are most concerning to Americans. I have my doubts though.

Trump rambling about imaginary conspiracies, lying about known facts, and talking into a muted Mike should make quite the impression upon the undecideds.

they’ll be reminded that he lies like most mammals breathe: habitually and without conscious thought. They’ll be reminded that he knows not one fig about any kind of policy foreign, domestic, economic or trade. They’ll be reminded that although Biden might not be their cup of tea on Gaza, Trump is an avowed Islamophobic (and a xenophobe in general).

Oh and he’s very likely to be a convicted felon. So there’s that.

I’m sure it will go about as well as anything else he does…

I wouldn’t be surprised if Trump sites some imagined bias or non-sequitor “legal” excuse and pulls out.

Ok, so you’re saying that Biden will just lie and do his usual Trump baseless attacks. That helps Trump, let old Joe ramble on and then Trump’s retort, talk about all the issues he accomplished all 280 and talk about the issues now and put Biden on Indisputable and facts record.

Are you comfortable with additional inflation?

Trump: No, I've seen. I've seen—I don't believe it'll be inflation. I think it'll be lack of loss for our country. Because what will happen and what other countries do very successfully, China being a leader of it. India is very difficult to deal with. India—I get along great with Modi, but they're very difficult to deal with on trade. France is frankly very difficult on trade. Brazil is very difficult on trade. What they do is they charge you so much to go in. They say, we don't want you to send cars into Brazil or we don't want you to send cars into China or India. But if you want to build a plant inside of our country, that's okay and employ our people. And that's basically what I'm doing. And that’s—I was doing and I was doing it strongly, but it was ready to really start and then we got hit with COVID. We had to fix that problem. And we ended up handing over a higher stock market substantially than when COVID first came in. But if you look at the first few years of what we did, the numbers we had were breathtaking.

Examples, please.

Examples, please.

All of them with the exception of abortion.

This is what Trump and his MAGA cult would consider a fair debate question:

”Mr President, sir, many are saying you were the greatest president of all time. In your second term, do you expect to surpass your record 280 accomplishments? And how will you deal with the radical woke Marxists who hate our country? 10 minutes, uninterrupted.”

I understand. You can’t back up your assertion of liberal bias.

There are no valid reasons for anyone to be a tosser.

Yes

And how will you deal with the radical woke Marxists who hate our country?

More bad news for Joe.

Just calling it for what it is. Facts, hate game, don’t hate the player.

Biden didn’t apparently get that memo.

One person coward Trump is deathly afraid of debating is Bernie Sanders.

Trump would get roasted worse than Obama did to him at that press event.

Only if it’s “person, woman, man, camera, tv” level. 

Otherwise prep for word salad with slurred words.

Biden has always had these problems 

Like the time he said (repeatedly) Nikki Haley turned down extra protection for the capital (Itvwas Nancy and she didn’t).

Or the time he accused his rival of starting “WWII”.

Or the time he said he beat a candidate who wasn’t running.

Oh wait. Those were all the orange blob.

CNN and ABC, eh?

Trump will have two opponents at those debates.

One opponent, of course, will be Biden. (Although between his cognitive decline and his lousy job performance, he probably won't be a very formidable one.)

The other opponent will be the so-called "moderator."

Speaking of whom, I wonder if they'll ask Biden about his daughter's diary -- which is undeniably authentic as confirmed by the woman herself, and which clearly details sexually inappropriate conduct by Biden with her.

I doubt it. The CNN and ABC moderators will probably participate in the same cover-up of likely sexual abuse of a child that the rest of the media are participating in.

Are you kidding me, now I would pay to see Trump stomp a muddle puddle in that Socialist. I wish, God I wish….

By a Socialist? That’s like Nadler getting in a ring with Tyson, the visual would be too gruesome to show on TV. Lol

Of course. It is a matter of intellect like in these interactions.

It is obvious isn't it?

Trump the ignorant alt-rightist would get roasted like like a socialist historian did to Tucker Carlson.

Give me a break.

Nice try as usual, there is a reason why Socialism continues to fail, now if Bernie gave everything that made him rich…Capitalism, then I won’t say anything. Give all the money, donations and everything back that made him money.

Trump first.

Sanders mad his money by his pen and great speeches.

Not cheating blue collar workers and selling out the American government to foreign interests and corporate carpetbaggers.

He’s a Socialist, he should do them for free.

Not cheating blue collar workers and selling out the American government to foreign interests and corporate carpetbaggers.

He is definitely keeping tax payers, what he should do is give that money back, live in the mountains or tent, don’t take anything from the people But as the socialist he is, take as much money, enrich yourself and then take other people’s money. Sounds about right.
