The Biden campaign has refused to commit to the president debating former President Donald Trump if he becomes the 2024 GOP nominee.
The information was shared in a statement from Biden's communications director on Tuesday.

“To be honest with you, we haven’t really had any substantive conversations about that yet,” the Biden campaign’s Communications Director, Michael Tyler, told reporters Tuesday, according to NBC," the Daily Caller reported.
"Biden is unlikely to debate any Democrats in the 2024 election cycle. The Democratic National Committee (DNC) is not hosting any debates given that Biden is the incumbent. His challengers, Robert F. Kennedy and Marianne Williamson, have called for the president to debate them, but his campaign has not announced any plans to do so," it added.

Trump also recently announced that he will not be joining any of the GOP presidential debates.
“New CBS POLL, just out, has me leading the field by “legendary” numbers. TRUMP 62%, 46 Points above DeSanctimonious (who is crashing like an ailing bird!), Ramaswamy 7%, Pence 5%, Scott 3%, Haley 2%, Sloppy Chris Christie 2%, ‘Aida’ Hutchinson 1%," Trump posted to his Truth Social account.
"The public knows who I am & what a successful Presidency I had, with Energy Independence, Strong Borders & Military, Biggest EVER Tax & Regulation Cuts, No Inflation, Strongest Economy in History, & much more. I WILL THEREFORE NOT BE DOING THE DEBATES!” Trump said," he continued.
If the pattern continues, it could result in no debates between the top two presidential candidates, with voters left looking back at the debates in 2020 for interactions between the two leaders.
The outcome will likely be controversial regardless of who wins, with many questioning Biden's health while others express concerns about Trump serving as president while facing multiple indictments.
The debate will also be from a distance, with the only interaction through campaign communications and speeches instead of face-to-face.
