“Whatever you do, do not debate it with Trump,” he wrote on CNN. “Trump has made more than 20,000 fraudulent or false statements, according to the Washington Post. It’s a mistake of a fool to network with someone who can not follow the rules or the truth. Biden will undoubtedly get heat from Republicans and the media to sidestep debates. But it̵7;s worth the risk as trying to debate someone incapable of telling the truth is an impossible competition to win. “

Trump supporters have also said that Democrats and their allies in the mainstream media remember how effective Trump was in getting his message to voters during live press conferences in 2016, and they do not want to give the president that kind of platform again. .
Lockhart stressed that many polls are unfavorable to Trump and “any quantitative signal and historical precedent indicates a certain loss for the President in November.”
