Biden and Trump Finalize Debate Dates

( – Both 2024 presidential candidates, Joe Biden and Donald Trump, have agreed to debate on June 27 and September 10, which marks the end of a tussle that risked the possibility of no presidential debates in this year’s election cycle.

The whole saga unfolded after President Joe Biden posted a video message on his social media platforms and challenged Trump to pick a date to debate him.

Donald Trump quickly fired back and accepted the challenge for which he had already been pushing the president for a long time.

The first debate will now be conducted on June 27 in CNN’s Atlanta studio. This audience-less debate will be moderated by CNN anchors Jake Tapper and Dana Bash. Georgia has emerged as one of the six hotly contested states that could decide the next president of the United States.

The second debate will be organized on September 10 by ABC News. ABC News previously tried to arrange a Republican primary debate, which they had to cancel as Donald Trump and Nikki Haley refused to participate.

Traditionally, the debates are conducted by the Commission on Presidential Debates, so no news channel has the exclusive right to the coverage. However, this year’s debates have raised concerns about the possibility of low viewership, as they are conducted by news channels and not by the non-partisan organization. While ABC News has already announced that it will simulcast the debate on other news networks for a broader reach of the event, CNN has yet to make any such decision.

Meanwhile, both candidates have started trading barbs in the buildup of the much-anticipated debates.

Trump posted a video on his YouTube channel, suggesting that the president does not want to have a crowd in the debates since he is never able to attract people to his rallies.

While accepting the debate invitations, Trump called Biden a real threat to democracy and the “WORST PRESIDENT” in the history of the United States.
