Joy Reid, Maddow and Lawrence preside over the questioning. No one from Fox in the room. They are not a news agency or journalist. You may as well allow Peckers in with Press credentials.

When I debated in high school, we were taught how to never interrupt our opponent when he/she had the floor and to instead focus on his/her arguments to help make your own case. Trump doesn’t know how to debate. That is a problem because he has nothing to argue to support his allegations. All he knows is how to lie and filibuster. Trump will decline Joe’s offer because he knows that he would lose if he had to follow the rules, unlike anyone else, who believes in, and can actually support, their positions.

And no audience just the candidates, moderators and perhaps family. TFA thrives on having an audience so if there is no audience he can’t feed off their energy.

What a child.

I do not believe in hitting anyone but if I had the chance.....no, you never know what might come out of that bag of "something smelly and sinister".

After no showing in the GOP debates, he is anything but battle tested. His rallies are not as sharp as 2016. He was bad in 2020. I'm not sure he won't find a way out of debates.

Joe Biden

I've also received and accepted an invitation to a debate hosted by ABC on Tuesday, September 10th.

Trump says he’ll arrange his own transportation. I’ll bring my plane, too. I plan on keeping it for another four years.
