President Trump says the virtual debate is a waste of time.
On today’s Jay Sekulow Live/The Logan Sekulow ReProgram, we talked about the Commission on Presidential Debates’ surprising announcement that the next debate would be held virtually. President Trump immediately responded that he would not participate, and called the idea of he and Biden sitting behind computers a waste of time.
Here’s what President Trump said this morning on Fox Business:
I heard that the commission, a little while ago, changed the debate style, and that’s not acceptable to us.
Fox Business’ Maria Bartiromo then asked the President if he would participate in a virtual exchange. The President responded:
I’m not going to waste my time on a virtual debate. That’s not what debating’s all about. You sit behind a computer and do a debate, it’s ridiculous. And then they cut you off whenever they want.
Obviously, this change is a response to President Trump testing positive for COVID-19.
My co-host Will Haynes and I both agreed that holding a town hall-style debate virtually would be tough, because among other issues, there is always a delay. Just watch the news. The commentators are always talking on top of each other. There’s always someone not hearing the others in their ear. It’s not conducive to this kind of event. Especially with the presidency effectively on the line.
The full broadcast is complete with a lot more discussion about this latest announcement to this unusual election, and President Trump’s decision not to participate virtually, as well as our assessment of last night’s debate between Vice President Pence and Biden running mate, Kamala Harris.
