The Biden campaign has rejected proposals for additional debates beyond the two previously agreed upon with former President Trump. 

In a statement, Biden campaign chair Jen O’Malley Dillon said, “Donald Trump has a long history of playing games with debates: complaining about the rules, breaking those rules, pulling out at the last minute, or not showing up at all — which he’s done repeatedly in all three cycles he’s run for president. He said he would debate President Biden anytime, anywhere, anyplace. In fact, he’s said and posted it dozens of times with varying degrees of comprehension and basic grammar. President Biden made his terms clear for two one-on-one debates, and Donald Trump accepted those terms. No more games. No more chaos, no more debate about debates. We’ll see Donald Trump on June 27th in Atlanta – if he shows up.”

derstand this, for their internal motivation.”

This statement comes after the Trump campaign suggested holding additional debates in July and August to “allow voters to have maximum exposure to the records and future visions of each candidate.” 

In addition, Trump announced on Truth Social that he had accepted an invitation to a debate on October 2, hosted by Fox News, seemingly to pressure Biden into agreeing to more debates.

Notably, both campaigns have decided against involving the Commission on Presidential Debates, which has organized debates since 1988.
