US president Joe Biden swerves after Trump calls for debates with him ‘anytime, anywhere, anyplace’

Joe Biden has swerved Donald Trump after the former US President called for debates between himself and President Biden ahead of the 2024 general election, saying he is willing to participate “anytime, anywhere, anyplace.”

Trump, the 2024 GOP frontrunner and presumptive nominee, posted his offer on his Truth Social on Wednesday afternoon, March 6 just hours after former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley, his last-standing Republican opponent, suspended her campaign.

“It is important, for the Good of our Country, that Joe Biden and I Debate Issues that are so vital to America, and the American People,” Trump posted Wednesday. “Therefore, I am calling for Debates, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE, ANYPLACE! The Debates can be run by the Corrupt DNC, or their Subsidiary, the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD).”

“I look forward to receiving a response. Thank you for your attention to this matter!” Trump added.

The Biden campaign fired back, shortly after Trump’s invitation, rejecting the proposal.

“I know Donald Trump’s thirsty for attention and struggling to expand his appeal beyond the MAGA base — and that’s a conversation we’ll have at the appropriate time in this cycle,” Biden campaign communications director Michael Tyler told Fox News Digital. “But if he’s so desperate to see President Biden in prime time, he doesn’t have to wait!”

“He can join the tens of millions of Americans who will tune in to watch the State of the Union tomorrow night,” Tyler continued. “He might even learn a thing or two about bringing people together and actually delivering for the American people.”

Trump, wrote on Truth Social on Wednesday, March 7, signalled he would be watching Biden’s State of the Union but will use it to campaign.

“I am pleased to inform you that tomorrow night we will be doing a LIVE, Play by Play, of Crooked Joe Biden’s State of the Union Address,” Trump posted. “I will correct, in rapid response, any and all inaccurate Statements, especially pertaining to the Border and his Weaponization of the DOJ, FBI, A.G.s, and District Attorneys, to go after his Political Opponent, ME (something never done before in this Country!).”

Trump added: “We did this once before to tremendous success – Beating All Records. It is important for the Country to get the TRUTH!”
