Biden and Trump Set to Face Off in Two Presidential TV Debates

Joe Biden and Donald Trump have agreed to participate in two presidential TV debates in June and September, setting the stage for high-stakes political duels that could significantly impact the White House race.

The first debate will be hosted by CNN on June 27 in the crucial swing state of Georgia, while the second will be hosted by ABC on September 10.

The announcement follows President Biden, a Democrat, outlining his conditions for debating his Republican predecessor ahead of the November election.

CNN announced that the debate in Atlanta will not have an audience and will be moderated by hosts Jake Tapper and Dana Bash. This debate is scheduled unusually early in the election year.

ABC announced that its presenters, David Muir and Linsey Davis, would moderate the second debate, though the network has not yet specified a location.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., running as an independent, accused the two major candidates of colluding to exclude him. However, later on Wednesday, he stated on X, formerly known as Twitter, that he would meet the requirements to qualify for the CNN debate.

Donald Trump announced on his social media platform, Truth Social, that he had accepted an invitation from Fox News for a third debate on October 2. In response, Biden’s campaign chairwoman, Jen O’Malley Dillon, reiterated that the president had “made his terms clear for two one-on-one debates, and Donald Trump accepted those terms.”
