The Trump campaign trolled Joe Biden (D) who has refused to hold in-person campaign events and continues to, largely, reside in his basement in an August 6 letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates, while asking for a guarantee that the former vice president will definitely appear on stage, in person.
The Trump campaign this week asked the commission for the addition of a fourth, or earlier, debate. While the commission did not approve of the request, it left the door open, telling the Trump campaign that it would consider a fourth debate if the candidates were to agree that they wished to add to that schedule.
We are disappointed in your response, but appreciate your openness to a fourth, or earlier, debate [i]f the candidates were to agree that they wished to add to that schedule,' Trump attorney Rudy Giulini wrote in the letter.
Your reply makes it clear that the idea of an earlier debate is, in effect, locked away in the basement, alone and diminished, he said in an apparent jab at Biden, while seeking assurance that the former vice president will appear on the debate stage in person:
Since your current refusal to consider an additional debate or an earlier date is based on Mr. Bidens unwillingness to agree, it would be logical to assume that any further changes to debate arrangements would hinge on his opinion. We must insist on a commitment that the two candidates will definitely appear on stage, in person whether in a television studio without an audience or elsewhere and not through separate, online transmissions where Mr. Biden could rely on notes, teleprompter, or handlers.

They took down your direct image link.
They need to allow debaters to question each other.
Bidens people will never agree to that and if Trump tries to go rogue they will cut him off.
Democrats willing loot, burn and murder - OR support those who do - are NOT going to flinch at stealing an election or cheating in a debate.
“Bidens people will never agree to that and if Trump tries to go rogue they will cut him off.”
You are probably right. One way to go around that is for Trump to bring up these direct questions in his answers and then repeat the questions later in his answer if Biden doesn’t respond to them.
The direct questions must be something - anything - Biden doesn’t prepare for — anything to get him off script. If he’s off script he will stumble.
We need a Caine mutiny moment. Shirley Trump’s people can devise a way to obtain it.
We need a Caine mutiny moment
Precisely and it would not take much to make that happen. Any question that is the least bit challenging and Joe starts going off on the strawberries.
“I predict Biden can and will debate Trump and pull it off.”
Well, there’s always at least one person who looks at reality and decides they would rather believe in something else.
