Donald Trump Calls for More and Earlier Presidential Debates With President Biden

Donald Trump’s campaign is calling for more presidential debates to be held between him and President Joe Biden, and for the proposed face-offs to begin as early as possible to ensure that more Americans “have a full chance” to see the candidates in action before they cast their ballot.

“While the Commission on Presidential Debates has already announced three presidential debates and a vice-presidential debate to occur later this year, we are in favor of these debates beginning much earlier,” Trump’s co-campaign managers Susie Wiles and Chris LaCivita said in a letter Thursday.

By the time of the first scheduled debate, on Sept. 16, more than 1 million Americans will likely have already voted, Wiles and LaCivita said. By the third debate, on Oct. 9, the campaign projected that the number would have surged to approximately 8.7 million. A second debate is penciled in for Oct. 1.
