Trump to Biden: Let’s ‘Rumble’ (Video)

( – President Joe Biden and former president Donald Trump have both agreed to participate in two 2024 election debates, one in June and another in September, with the latter declaring that he was “ready to Rumble!”

The agreement was reached following a series of online exchanges on Wednesday. In these exchanges, Biden challenged Trump with the phrase “make my day, pal.”

The initial debate is scheduled to air on CNN at 9 p.m. on June 27 in Atlanta, without an audience, National Review reports.

CNN anchors Jake Tapper and Dana Bash will serve as moderators, as confirmed by the network this Wednesday afternoon.

Additionally, the candidates have consented to a second debate on ABC, set for September 10, as per the network’s announcement.

Trump’s campaign has suggested holding further debates in July and August, and Trump has proposed an additional debate in October on Fox News.

The arrangement of these debates appears to have been expedited on Wednesday morning, though there are indications of some prior coordination.

The dialogue between Biden and Trump began with a video posted by Biden on X where he expressed his desire for two debates with Trump. In the video, Biden also referenced Trump’s ongoing “hush-money” criminal trial, which does not convene on Wednesdays.

“Donald Trump lost two debates to me in 2020, and since then he hasn’t shown up for a debate. Now he’s acting like he wants to debate me again. Well, make my day pal. I’ll even do it twice. So let’s pick the dates, Donald. I hear you’re free on Wednesdays,” Biden stated in the pre-recorded video.

In response, the Biden campaign began marketing “Free on Wednesdays” merchandise.

Trump, who has opted out of participating in the Republican primary debates, responded on Truth Social to Biden’s challenge.

“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,” Trump stated confidently.

“Just tell me when, I’ll be there. ‘Let’s get ready to Rumble!!!’” he added.

Shortly after, Biden revisited X to announce that he had accepted CNN’s invitation to debate on June 27. “Over to you, Donald. As you said: anywhere, any time, any place,” he posted.
