The campaigns for President Trump and Joe Biden both called on the Commission on Presidential Debates to postpone the next scheduled debate by a week after the president said that he would not participate in a virtual version of the event.
But Biden campaign rejected the Trump team’s proposal reschedule the third and final presidential debate, indicating that Biden will one agree to face off against Trump one more time.
Both called for the Oct. 15 town hall-style debate to take place on Oct. 22 — the date of the third and final scheduled one-on-one debate slated to take place in Nashville, Tennessee. But Trump’s campaign also called for the Oct. 22 debate to also be pushed back a week, to Oct. 29.
Top Biden aide Kate Bedingfield rejected that proposal.
“Donald Trump doesn’t make the debate schedule; the Debate Commission does,” she said in a statement on Thursday.
