Joe Biden proposes two TV duels: Donald Trump accepts the challenge

US President Joe Biden has challenged Donald Trump to two TV duels before the US election. He immediately agreed to do so.

The incumbent US President Joe Biden (81) challenged his rival Donald Trump (77) to two TV duels on Wednesday (May 15th). On “Make my day, buddy, I’ll even do it twice. So let’s set the dates, Donald,” the 81-year-old says in the clip. For his part, Donald Trump responded on his own social media network, Truth Social, and accepted the challenge.

New format for TV duels for the US presidency

The 77-year-old wrote in response that he was “ready and willing” to debate Biden “on the two proposed dates in June and September,” adding: “Just tell me when, I’ll be there.”

The agreed TV duels would represent a departure from the traditional debate format in the US presidential election campaign. So far, three TV duels have taken place in front of a large audience. Biden’s presidential campaign has now suggested that the two duels be held in a television studio. In addition, the microphone of the participant who is not speaking should be switched off, which should avoid annoying heckling – a departure from the traditional debate system in the US election campaign.

The US presidential election will take place on November 5th. Before that, the Republicans will officially nominate their candidate from July 15th to 18th in Milwaukee. The Democratic nomination convention will take place from August 19th to 22nd in the US metropolis of Chicago.
