President Donald Trump on Monday enthusiastically embraced the idea of a four-hour debate moderated by podcaster and former ultimate fighting commentator Joe Rogan.
Ultimate Fighting Championship competitor Tim Kennedy proposed the idea, tweeting Monday:
“On my podcast with @joerogan he offered to moderate a debate between @JoeBiden and @realDonaldTrump It would be four hours with no live audience. Just the two candidates, cameras, and their vision of how to move this country forward. Who wants this? #debates #Election2020”
The President quickly responded.
Three debates are scheduled between the Republican incumbent and Democratic challenger Joe Biden. The Trump campaign has pushed for additional debates, but the Biden team has expressed no such interest, and both House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., and Joe Lockhart, who served as press secretary under President Bill Clinton, have urged Biden to not debate Trump at all, saying he will not follow any rules.
