‘ANYTIME, ANYWHERE, ANYPLACE!’ Trump begins crusade to get Biden to debate

Former President Donald Trump has challenged President Joe Biden to debate him “anytime, anywhere, anyplace.”

Fresh off his multiple primary wins and hours after his last GOP opponent Nikki Haley suspended her campaign, the 2024 GOP frontrunner put out his message on the Truth Social platform Wednesday.

“It is important, for the Good of our Country, that Joe Biden and I Debate Issues that are so vital to America, and the American People,” Trump wrote. “Therefore, I am calling for Debates, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE, ANYPLACE! The Debates can be run by the Corrupt DNC, or their Subsidiary, the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD).”

 

“I look forward to receiving a response. Thank you for your attention to this matter!” he added.

Though Biden did not address the offer personally, campaign communications director Michael Tyler called Trump “desperate” and invited him to watch the president’s State of the Union address on Thursday.

“I know Donald Trump’s thirsty for attention and struggling to expand his appeal beyond the MAGA base — and that’s a conversation we’ll have at the appropriate time in this cycle,” Tyler told Fox News Digital. “But if he’s so desperate to see President Biden in prime time, he doesn’t have to wait!”

“He can join the tens of millions of Americans who will tune in to watch the State of the Union tomorrow night,” Tyler added. “He might even learn a thing or two about bringing people together and actually delivering for the American people.”

Asked about the potential for the two men to debate, White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre responded Wednesday, “That’s something for the campaign to speak to.”

Trump will certainly be watching Biden Thursday night and even posted that he would be going “live” during the broadcast.

“I am pleased to inform you that tomorrow night we will be doing a LIVE, Play by Play, of Crooked Joe Biden’s State of the Union Address,” he posted. “I will correct, in rapid response, any and all inaccurate Statements, especially pertaining to the Border and his Weaponization of the DOJ, FBI, A.G.s, and District Attorneys, to go after his Political Opponent, ME (something never done before in this Country!).”

 

“We did this once before to tremendous success – Beating All Records. It is important for the Country to get the TRUTH!” he added.

Meanwhile, back in 2022, objections to the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) and its handling of debates led the Republican National Committee (RNC) to withdraw.

“Debates are an important part of the democratic process, and the RNC is committed to free and fair debates,” then-RNC Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said at the time.

“The Commission on Presidential Debates is biased and has refused to enact simple and commonsense reforms to help ensure fair debates including hosting debates before voting begins and selecting moderators who have never worked for candidates on the debate stage,” she added in the statement.
