Let’s delve into the details:

  1. Trump’s Position:
    • On social media, Trump boldly promised that he would debate Biden “ANYTIME, ANYWHERE, ANYPLACE.” However, it’s essential to note that this claim isn’t fully supported by Trump’s record. During this election cycle, he did not participate in any of the Republican National Committee-sponsored primary debates. Furthermore, Trump was the only major-party nominee in modern history to back out of a general election debate during the pandemic four years ago.
    • The RNC voted in 2022 to end its relationship with the nonpartisan system that has sponsored general election debates since the 1988 presidential campaign. Trump has since made significant changes within the RNC.
  2. Biden’s Position:
    • Biden faced minimal primary opposition this year, and the Democratic National Committee did not sponsor any primary debates. However, he has remained coy about whether he will debate Trump in the general election, stating that it “depends on his behavior.”
    • While the question of whether either candidate will show up on the debate stage remains open, there is already a detailed plan in place for three presidential debates and one vice presidential debate. The Commission on Presidential Debates, a nonpartisan organization with leaders from both sides of the political aisle, oversees these debates. The commission receives funding from the communities that host debates and, to a lesser extent, from corporate, foundation, and private donors.
  3. History of Presidential Debates:
    • The tradition of presidential debates began in 1976 when President Gerald Ford challenged Jimmy Carter to debates. Since then, debates have become an integral part of the election process.

As the election season unfolds, the possibility of a face-off between these two prominent figures continues to captivate the nation.
