President Donald Trump said he wouldn’t participate in a virtual debate after the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) announced that next week’s second presidential debate would be held virtually, in an interview with Fox Business host Maria Bartiromo.
“I beat him easily in the first debate, according to the polls that I’ve seen. But, I’ve beat him easily, I felt I beat him easily, I think he felt it too. He wouldn’t answer any questions and he had the protection of Chris Wallace all night long. I thought Chris Wallace was a disaster,” Trump said.
“But I beat him in the first debate. The second debate we have a never-Trumper as a host, but that’s ok because I’ll beat him in the second debate also, but I’m not gonna do a virtual debate.”
The CPD cited health and safety concerns led to their decision. The President tested positive for COVID-19 last Thursday and received treatment over the weekend at Walter Reed Military Medical Hospital. He returned to the White House on Monday and his doctors say he’s on the mend and has been asymptomatic for days.
“I’m not gonna waste my time on a virtual debate,” Trump said. “That’s not what debating’s all about. You sit behind a computer and do a debate. It’s ridiculous and then they cut you off whenever they want.”
