Joe Biden has failed to make himself look like a viable political opponent to President Trump over the past week, turning down two more presidential debates even while making stringent demands for two mainstream network debates in June and September.

According to The Epoch Times, Biden has declined to take on two more presidential debates, including one with Fox News and a second with NBC & Telemundo. While Trump accepted both, Biden’s campaign has had a much different response.

Biden’s camp opted out of the debates, telling NBC News that the “debate about the debates is over.”

President Trump initially announced on Truth Social last week that he had accepted the latest fourth debate, noting that he did so to continue reaching the Hispanic community in America.

“It is important as Republicans that we WIN with our Great Hispanic Community, who Biden has devastated with Crippling Inflation, High Gas Prices, Crime in our Streets, and Border Chaos,” he wrote.

President Trump also pointed out that he had accepted debate offers from CNN, ABC News, and Fox News, in addition to preemptively accepting a vice-presidential debate with Kamala Harris, although his running mate has not yet been named.

Trump added, “These are the Debates that Voters have been asking for, and these are the Debates that Voters will get!”

As of now, voters will only get two presidential debates between June and September, thanks to Biden’s unwillingness to commit to more than two events. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Biden has also requested that no audience be present at the CNN presidential debate.

Staying true to his promise of debating Biden “anywhere, anytime, and anyplace,” Trump has agreed to those terms.

Per TIME, the upcoming June debate is the earliest general election debate in modern American history, due to the importance of reaching those Americans who will be casting early mail-in votes.
