President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump have agreed to go head-to-head in two presidential debates. First up is a CNN-hosted event on June 27. The next is Sept. 10 on ABC.

The May 15 announcement follows repeated comments from Biden in which he refused to confirm that he would debate Trump.

Trump has pushed for 10 debates – anytime, anywhere – but Biden has demanded much more limited and controlled events, and refuses to participate in the traditional debates, hosted for decades by the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates.

The two confirmed debates will be organized by what many conservatives consider left-leaning, mainstream media outlets that are far more friendly to Biden.

Still, Democratic leaders have expressed concern that any Biden/Trump debate may only help Trump.

Trump, who thrives on stage before large crowds, has apparently made a concession to the Biden camp by agreeing to the CNN debate format, which will not include any audience members.

“Crooked Joe Biden is the WORST debater I have ever faced – He can’t put two sentences together!” Trump posted to TruthSocial on May 15. “It’s time for a debate so that he can explain to the American People his highly destructive Open Border Policy, new and ridiculous EV Mandates, the allowance of Crushing Inflation, High Taxes, and his really WEAK Foreign Policy, which is allowing the World to ‘Catch on Fire.’ I am Ready and Willing to Debate Crooked Joe at the two proposed times in June and September. I would strongly recommend more than two debates and, for excitement purposes, a very large venue, although Biden is supposedly afraid of crowds – That’s only because he doesn’t get them. Just tell me when, I’ll be there. ‘Let’s get ready to Rumble!!!’”

  • Proud Alaskan says:

    Trump is going to wipe the floor, with crooked Joe.
    But you know the media and CNN has his back.

    • Lobo says:

      That is part of the reason that Joey demands that there can be no live audience in the room, and CNN will probably be broadcasting with a 3 second delay.

      • Sherry says:

        No, a * debate” is not about yelling over the other person, trump always tries to bully the other opponent, as we saw last time. As per usual, you magas r yelling foul! or it’s not fair! Biden wiped the floor with trump last election, by more than 7 million votes, oh wait, if trump doesn’t win, then Biden cheated, right. Ah, there is the kindergarten logic. Grow up maga.

  • North to Alaska says:

    Of course neither of them want RFKjr in the debate. He would remind everyone how these two scum bags destroyed thousands of family businesses with their lockdowns and destroyed millions of lives with their clot shots.

  • Can Open says:

    I can’t wait to see what excuses Xi enforces to cancel each debate.

  • Friend of Humanity says:

    It is too good to be true. It is not going to happen. We should have a voting page where we can vote on what we think is going to happen so that there will not be these debates and have ongoing updates. Lol

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      Oh, my previous comment does not make sense. We should having a voting page to indicate what we believe is going on, whether there will be a debate or not, and have on-going updates. Kind of like Lobo brought up earlier here – Crooked Joe’s handlers have made demands that have to be followed in order for Crooked Joe to debate.

    Welcome to the Grand Illusion… love ya,,,signed Dominion.

  • Citizenkane says:

    Charlie Brown, Lucy and a football come to mind.

  • Mary says:

    “Grand Illusion” yep! Dominions got your back. Shows over folks. ya’ll can go home now.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      There is too much work going on around the nation indicating that people are not going to sit idly by while Crooked Joe’s team cheats. I think that, some how, some way, there will be an election where everyone’s votes will count.

      • Sherry says:

        oh , u just can’t admit when You’ve been beaten!. Typical response. Do u think your mommy will let u stay up and watch?

  • jon says:

    Two will be enough. We will know what the party lines are: here they stand on abortion homelessness and the border. What are they going to do? My guess :trump will not answer the questions and complain about the trial, Biden won’t answer questions either, but he’ll get in a few zinger against Trump.

    • Friend of Humanity says:

      President Trump is going to use that debate time to bring up how Resident O’biden has made bad choice after bad choice after bad choice and brought America to a grinding halt.

  • DaveMaxwell says:

    Maybe dunceleavy will make an appearance? What the hell else does he do?

  • Jeff Butler says:

    Friend. I posted some great jokes but Suzanne apparently didn’t like them.

  • Kenneth L. Wells says:

    Prediction: The DNC has allowed biden to challenge Trump to a debate for the purpose of publicly humiliating biden thereby demonstrating that someone else will have to be nominee because poor, old, creepy joe is just too old.

    They have that person lined up already and will bypass all that tedious ‘democracy stuff’ because there just isn’t enough time before the election, dontchya know, very unfortunate, but we gotta do what we gotta do, poor old joe.

    I wonder who it is? Mike Obama? Gov. Nuisance? Pete Bootygig? Killary? The suspense!

    • Sherry says:

      WOW, what color is the sky in your world? Get a life maga. U r so predictable. Same time same answer. lf we don’t win, someone cheated. There is always a winner and there is always a republican loser.
