On Wednesday, the Trump campaign requested that a fourth debate be added in early September, citing the millions of Americans who will have the opportunity to vote early, before the candidates have even faced off on the debate stage on September 29. As an alternative, the Trump campaign suggested the last debate, scheduled for October 22, be moved up to the first week of September.

Biden will never debate

It was free money on the table for Trump to ask.
Now in Biden's hands to agree to moving one debate earlier.
If he doesn't – Biden 0 : Trump 1

Then they should move the first one to the beginning of September.

Why would people want to see that? The whole thing is rigged. Biden will never debate.

They won't allow a debate at all. No way Joe can debate without an earpiece.

I remember when y’all speculated that Trump would be afraid of a debate. Good times.

Remember when media & Democrats claimed Trump would be the one afraid to debate. https://t.co/rrW8Hya4Us

am I wrong in my assertion that all Trump has to do is get Biden mad enough on stage to go off script and challenge trump to a push up contest? Once he is stressed, Biden is done.

My money is on the over/under on how far into first debate Sleepy Joe tries to throw a punch.

I think we all know that Trump would flatten Biden in a debate.
No question about it.

I don't want a fourth debate. I want a first debate. Pitter patter let's get at 'er.

There won’t be any debates with Biden. None.

And Biden was going to beat him like a drum.

We’re still waiting to find out who will be debating Vice President Mike Pence. We’ll be told next week is the last we’d heard.
