Joe Biden says he’s been advised to debate Trump with fact checker present
NY POST: Democratic presidential nominee, Joe Biden on Thursday, said he intends to debate President Trump, but that “very competent people” urged him not to do so without a fact-checker on stage.
“I’ve been recommended to me by a number of very competent people who know their way around, including leading Republicans, that I shouldn’t debate Trump unless there’s a fact-checker on the ground… saying that’s true, that’s not true. But look, I think everybody knows this man has a somewhat pathological tendency not to tell the truth,” Biden said in an MSNBC interview.
Biden swatted away House Speaker Nancy Pelosi’s call for him to drop out of the debates against Trump.
Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Biden should not “legitimize a conversation with Trump” because he lacks “any association with the truth.” She also said Biden should deny the president an opportunity to “act in a way that is beneath the dignity of the presidency.”
