Trump challenges Biden to a DEBATE “anywhere, anytime, anyplace”
05/02/2024 // Ramon Tomey // Views

Former President Donald Trump has challenged incumbent President Joe Biden to a debate after the latter said he was "happy to debate" the presumptive Republican nominee.

Trump issued the challenge on April 26 via a Truth Social post: "Crooked Joe Biden just announced that he's willing to debate. Everyone knows he doesn't really mean it, but in case he does – I [say] anywhere, anytime, anyplace – an old expression used by fighters."

The real estate mogul suggested several dates – the evening of April 29, the evening of April 30 or the evening of May 1. The latter coincides with his campaign rally in Michigan, "a state that [Biden] is in the process of destroying with his [electric vehicle] mandate."

Trump also mentioned that he was still in New York City "stuck in one of the many court cases that [Biden] instigated." The former president denounced the lawfare against him as "election interference against a political opponent" and "a continuing witch hunt."

"It's the only way he thinks he can win. In fact, let's do the debate at the Courthouse tonight – on national television. I'll wait around," Trump continued, taking a swipe at the incumbent. The former president addressed the New York State Supreme Court Building by its former name – the New York County Courthouse – in his post.

Trump's challenge came as a response to Biden's interview with radio host Howard Stern earlier that day. "I don't know if you're going to debate your opponent," said the shock jock. Biden responded: "I am, somewhere, I don't know when. I'm happy to debate him."

"Trump makes fun of me," the Democratic president continued. "He's the kind of guy in the neighborhood you wish you could've gotten in the neighborhood and meet head-to-head."

Trump campaign: The people deserve to hear from both candidates before voting begins

Trump wasn't the only one who reacted to Biden's remarks on "The Howard Stern Show." The Trump campaign echoed the former president's remarks of "anytime, anywhere, anyplace" in a separate Truth Social post. Chris LaCivita, co-manager for the Trump campaign, posted a mere four words: "OK, let's set it up."

But this wasn't the first instance Trump challenged the incumbent to a debate. The former president issued a challenge to Biden after former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley dropped out of the Republican primary race in March.

"It is important for the good of the country that Joe Biden and I debate issues that are so vital to America and the American people," Trump said at the time. "Therefore, I am calling for debates anytime, anywhere, anyplace."

"The debates can be run by the corrupt DNC [Democratic National Committee] or their subsidiary, the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD). I look forward to receiving a response. Thank you for your attention to this matter."

According to a report by Newsweek, the CPD purportedly refused to grant the Trump campaign's request to hold general election debates earlier than usual. This led LaCivita and campaign co-manager Susie Wiles to denounce the decision as "unacceptable."

"The [CPD's] schedule does not begin until after millions of Americans will have already cast their ballots," the two said in a statement emailed to Newsweek. "This is unacceptable, and by refusing to move up the debates, they are doing a grave disservice to the people who deserve to hear from both candidates before voting begins."

The two added that the Trump campaign was "committed to making" its preferred debate schedule  happen, "with or without the [CPD]." They also extended "an invitation to every television network in America that wishes to host a debate."

"[Former] President Trump has stated he will debate Joe Biden anytime, anywhere, anyplace – and Biden himself just agreed to debate. We once again call on Biden's team to work with us to set up one as soon as possible. The American people deserve it."
