Trump Immediately Issues a Blistering Response to Biden's Debate Challenge

Share

Former President Donald Trump said Tuesday he is “ready to rumble” after President Joe Biden publicly challenged him to two debates — even as Biden is shying away from three others.

“Donald Trump lost two debates to me in 2020. Since then, he hasn’t shown up for a debate. Now he’s acting like he wants to debate me again. Well, make my day, pal,” Biden said in the video posted to X.

“I’ll even do it twice. So let’s pick the dates, Donald. I hear you’re free on Wednesdays,” Biden said.

Within an hour, Trump took up the challenge in a post on Truth Social.

“Crooked Joe Biden is the WORST debater I have ever faced — He can’t put two sentences together!” Trump wrote.

“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,’” Trump continued.

Should the debates be in front of a live audience?

“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!!!’” Trump concluded.

The public comments come as the Biden campaign has said it will not participate in three debates organized by the Commission on Presidential Debates, according to The New York Times. Those are scheduled for Sept. 16, Oct. 1 and Oct. 9.

The Times report said that Biden’s campaign is pushing for a June debate as an antidote to Trump’s lead in the polls, including Trump’s lead in most swing states.

The Biden campaign has also proposed its own rules for debates, which the Times report said have not yet been accepted by the Trump campaign.

The Biden campaign has terms for which networks it wants to host a debate, proposing rules that the Times said would include CBS News, ABC News, CNN and Telemundo. It wants the debates held in a TV studio with no audience.

“There should be firm time limits for answers, and alternate turns to speak — so that the time is evenly divided and we have an exchange of views, not a spectacle of mutual interruption,” the Biden campaign letter said.


“A candidate’s microphone should only be active when it is his turn to speak, to promote adherence to the rules and orderly proceedings,” the Biden campaign proposal said.


A Note from Our Deputy Managing Editor:

 

“We don’t even know if an election will be held in 2024.” Those 12 words have been stuck in my head since I first read them. 

 

Former Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn recently made that comment to Floyd Brown, founder of The Western Journal. 

 

And if the leftists and the elites get their way, that’s exactly what will happen — no real election, no real choice for the Electoral College, and no real say for the American people. 

 

The Western Journal is fighting to keep that from happening, but we can’t do it alone.

 

We work tirelessly to expose the lying leftist media and the corrupt America-hating elites.

 

But Big Tech’s stranglehold is now so tight that without help from you, we will not be able to continue the fight. 

 

The 2024 election is literally the most important election for every living American. We have to unite and fight for our country, otherwise we will lose it. And if we lose the America we love in 2024, we’ll lose it for good. Can we count on you to help? 

 

With you we will be able to field journalists, do more investigative work, expose more corruption, and get desperately needed truth to millions of Americans. 

 

We can do this only with your help. Please don’t wait one minute. Donate right now.

 

Thank you for reading,

Josh Manning

Deputy Managing Editor
