Trump Campaign Deems the Commission's Denial of Expediting Debates "Intolerable"

The campaign of former President Trump criticized the Commission on Presidential Debates on Tuesday for refusing to change the schedule of the debates. They called this refusal “unacceptable” and hinted that the 45th president might find a way to bypass the commission, which has organized all general election presidential debates for many years.

The schedule of the Presidential Debate Commission starts after millions of Americans have already voted. The Trump campaign spokespeople, Chris LaCivita and Susie Wiles, said in a statement that it is unacceptable for the debates to not be moved up. They believe that the American public deserves to hear from both candidates before voting begins.

The Trump campaign recently requested the commission to schedule debates earlier than the planned first debate in mid-September. This request comes as the former president urges President Biden to engage in a direct debate.

“We are determined to make this happen, whether or not the Presidential Debate Commission is involved.” We are inviting every television network in America to host a debate. We are also urging Joe Biden’s team to cooperate with us in setting up a debate as soon as possible,” said LaCivita and Wiles.

The campaign is connected to a report from Fox News on Monday. The report stated that the commission confirmed its current schedule. The Hill has contacted the commission to request a comment.

Biden recently stated that he is willing to debate Trump. This comes after both candidates have obtained the necessary delegates to become the presumptive nominees for their respective parties in the 2024 election. Biden and his campaign have mostly avoided directly discussing debates with Trump, while the Republican has become more outspoken in urging the current president to participate in a face-to-face confrontation.

“Crooked” Joe Biden has recently announced that he is willing to participate in a debate. Many people understand that he may not be serious, but just in case he is, I say, ANYWHERE, ANYTIME, ANYPLACE. This is an old saying used by fighters,” Trump stated in a response on Truth Social.

The first presidential debate is currently scheduled for September 16th at Texas State University in San Marcos. This will be followed by a vice presidential debate on September 25th at Lafayette College in Easton, Pennsylvania. There are two more presidential debates scheduled for October in Virginia and Utah.

Trump did not participate in any of the GOP primary debates this time. He said he didn’t need to because he was doing well in the polls compared to the other Republican candidates. He is currently being tried in New York for criminal charges related to a payment made to keep something secret during the 2016 election.
