Donald Trump’s campaign isn’t planning on losing again this election cycle. They’re going all out to defeat President Biden.

And the Trump campaign makes a vicious demand that has the Biden administration seething.

Former President Donald Trump has made it very clear that he’s willing to debate President Joe Biden anywhere, anytime, and anyplace.

But now he and his campaign have gotten a little more specific on which time the debate vs. Biden should occur.

Trump’s campaign has demanded that the debates this year take place earlier in the election cycle and that they happen more frequently.

They said that because more voters are voting earlier in elections over the past several years, that it’s key to hold the debates at an earlier date.

“Voting is beginning earlier and earlier, and as we saw in 2020, tens of millions of Americans had already voted by the time of the first debate,” Susie Wiles and Chris LaCivita, Donald Trump’s co-campaign managers announced in a letter which was written to the Commission on Presidential Debates.

They then said that the commission’s proposed dates for the debates are too late in the election cycle and by then too many people would have made their decision for president through early voting.

“Specific to the Commission’s proposed 2024 calendar, it simply comes too late. By the date of the first proposed debate, September 16, 2024, over 1 million Americans will have likely voted. By the date of the second proposed debate, October 1, 2024, the number of Americans who will have likely cast a ballot will be over 3 million, an increase of 225%,” Wiles and LaCivita’s letter continued.

They also assumed that by the time the third debate takes place this year on October 9, 8.7 million people would have already cast their votes.

Wiles and LaCivita then said that it would be useful to have more debates scheduled as well.

“Former President Abraham Lincoln and former U.S. Senator Stephen A. Douglas held seven debates in their storied 1858 U.S. Senate battle in Illinois,” the letter added. “Certainly today’s America deserves as much.”

Donald Trump also agrees with this sentiment. He said as much while making statements to Fox News Digital early on during this election season.

“The country is in such trouble. What are Biden’s plans? I would fully accept any debate, anywhere, anytime, anyplace. …I think it is important that we debate, and the earlier, the better because people have to find out what is going on with America,” Trump said.

“We are no longer respected around the world. There are so many things that are happening. It’s not the same country that we had just four years ago.”

The big question though, besides whether or not the Commission on Presidential Debates agrees to the Trump campaign’s demands, is if Biden shares this same sentiment.

Most likely Biden and his staff will want him to avoid a plethora of debates.

Everyone has seen how he fumbles through his words on camera and on stage in front of people.

A debate would likely be more of the same if not worse since it would be unscripted.

So expect Joe Biden and his campaign to fight back against these demands by the Donald Trump campaign.
