Donald Trump and Joe Biden are headed for a rematch of the 2020 Presidential Election.

He recently told Biden to stop hiding in his basement and challenged him to a nationally televised debate.

And Joe Biden just responded to Donald Trump’s debate challenge with three words that caught reporters by surprise.

Presidential debates coming into focus

In each Presidential election cycle, the two main candidates usually square off in three nationally televised debates in the final months before voters head to the polls.

However, President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump only had one debate in 2020, which was the fewest since 1996.

But Trump is hoping to face off against Biden as many times as possible ahead of the November election.

Of course, many Americans question whether or not Joe Biden has the mental capacity to debate Donald Trump for two hours in front of a national audience.

Joe Biden accepts debate challenge from Donald Trump

During a recent appearance on the Howard Stern Show, Biden said he would be “happy to debate” Trump.

“I’m happy to debate him,” Biden told Stern.

After his interview, Trump posted a “letter to Joe” on his Truth Social platform where he requested that he “set it up right now.”

“Dear Joe, now that you’ve committed to Debate on the now dying Howard Stern Show, no less, let’s set it up right now,” Trump wrote. “I’m ready to go anywhere that you are.”

“We could do it in D.C., even pinpoint the White House, or in New York when your Radical Left Fascists are finished with ELECTION INTERFERENCE against your Political Opponent, ME,” Trump continued.

But Trump thought Biden was just running his mouth and did not plan on participating in a debate.

“I doubt it,” Trump said when asked if he thought Biden would accept his offer.

But Biden responded to Trump on Thursday after attending a ceremony for WNBA Champions, the Las Vegas Aces.

“Set it up,” Biden said when asked about debating Trump before the first scheduled event on September 16.

He previously said that Trump’s behavior would determine whether or not he agreed to debate him.

“Depends on his behavior,” Biden said. 

Right now, the first debate is scheduled to take place on September 16 at Texas State University in San Marcos, Texas.

The second and third debates are also scheduled for October 1 and October 9.

Biden is 81 years old and is suffering from severe cognitive decline.

He rarely appears for interviews and his staff works overtime to shield his senility from the public.

That’s why many believe Biden will find some type of excuse to avoid debating Trump before the November election.
