For his part, Donald Trump responded accessing the two debates. “I am ready and willing to debate corrupt Joe on the two proposed dates in June and September,” he said.

“I would strongly recommend more than two debates and, for entertainment purposes, a very large venue even though Biden is supposed to be afraid of crowds,” he added. “Just let me know, I’ll be there,” Trump concluded. “Let’s fight!”
