While Biden cowers in his basement, Trump has been out-and-about not only campaigning for re-election, but combating the COVID pandemic and reviving the economy.
Does Biden ever plan to debate Trump?
According to former Democrat presidential candidate Andrew Yang, Biden can’t wait!
In fact, Yang claims Biden will “clean his [Trump’s] clock” in debates.
Here’s the details on Yang’s forecast from HuffPost:
Former Democratic presidential candidate Andrew Yang has a warning for President Donald Trump ahead of any debates with former Vice President Joe Biden.
“Joe’s going to clean his clock,” predicted Yang. “Nothing will hold him back from doing that.”
The Trump campaign has tried to sell a narrative of a diminished Biden, but Yang ― who noted he’s been on the debate stage with Biden ― warned that’s going to backfire.
“When the American people see the contrast between Joe Biden and Donald Trump, it’s going to be a very tough case for the president to make,” Yang said:
The presidential debates are currently scheduled for Sept. 29, Oct. 15 and Oct. 22, with a vice presidential debate set for Oct. 7. However, last June, the Trump camp tried to alter the debate schedule and moderator selection ― a move the Biden camp indicated was a nonstarter.
Yang, who built his campaign around a universal basic income, also shared his frustration with the Republican plan to reduce the expanded unemployment benefits for people unable to work due to the COVID-19 closures:

Many are speculating, however, that Biden may refuse to debate Trump or limit the number of debates.
And we all have a good theory as to why that may be the case.
Biden knows he'll get slaughtered by Trump in a debate!

As expected, Newsweek reports that many Biden-supporters are encouraging him to not appear on stage with President Trump:
Democratic strategists and supporters of Vice President Joe Biden are urging him not to debate President Donald Trump in the lead-up to Election Day, citing Trump's publicity stunts and disregard for the rules in 2016. Meanwhile Biden backers, including some conservatives, applauded the University of Notre Dame and the University of Michigan for cancelling their scheduled debates over COVID-19 concerns.
Former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart joined several Democratic Party strategists in bluntly advising Biden, "whatever you do, don't debate Trump." Speaking on CNN Saturday, Lockhart said Trump shouldn't be given another platform which will enable him to "repeat lies," which he said occurred in the 2016 debates against Hillary Clinton.
The Trump campaign has pushed the other way and urged the nonpartisan Commission on Presidential Debates, which officially oversees the events, to hold even more debates.
"We saw in the debates in 2016 Hillary Clinton showed a mastery of the issues, every point she made was more honest and bested Trump," Lockhart told CNN. "But Trump came out of the debates doing better I think because he just kept repeating the same old lies: 'we're going to build a wall and Mexico is going to pay for it,' 'we're going to keep all those Mexican rapists out of the country,' and 'we're going to make great trade deals' — none of these things have come to pass."
Several opinion columns published in recent months have called for an outright cancellation of the debates, describing them — alongside the party conventions — as outdated political rituals designed purely for TV ratings.
Longtime Democratic strategist and former Hillary Clinton senior adviser Zac Petkanas agreed with calls for Biden to back out of any and all debates with Trump in the coming months. As it stands currently, there are three presidential debates and one vice presidential debate scheduled between September 29 and October 22.
One thing's for sure. It'll be an absolute bloodbath to watch dementia-afflicted Biden try and keep up with Trump's sharp debate skills!
