‘Sound Like A Broken Record’: Peter Doocy Repeatedly Asks KJP Whether Biden Will Commit To Debating Trump

Fox News White House correspondent Peter Doocy repeatedly asked White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre on Wednesday whether President Joe Biden intended to address the debate about former President Donald Trump.

The 2024 presidential election is currently decided between Biden and Trump. Former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley suspended his campaign Wednesday morning after losing by a landslide on Super Tuesday. The first presidential debate will be held at Texas State University on September 16th, followed by two more in October.

“Is President Biden going to participate in a debate with Donald Trump?” Doocy asked.

“That's something the campaign should be calling out,” Jean-Pierre said.

“Well, we know when the discussions are going to take place. We know where they're going. Is he going to go?” Doocy pressed.

“You should talk to your campaign team,” the spokesperson said.

Doocy read Biden saying he “can't wait” to debate Trump in 2020.

“What about now?” the Fox News correspondent asked.

“You sound like a broken record. You should contact the campaign,” Jean-Pierre replied. (Related: 'What's the rabbit hole?': KJP ducks from Doocy's question on Biden's mental strength)

“Why is this a campaign?” he asked.

“Because it's an election. This is a debate leading up to the 2024 presidential election,” she said.

“I'm not asking what kind of arguments he's going to make in the debate,” he said.

“That's not a debate. We're not talking about a debate. You're talking about his attendance. We need to talk to the campaign,” she responded.

Doocy then asked whether the president's mental strength would be further questioned if he decided not to attend the debate. The press secretary touted the president's legislative accomplishments, including infrastructure, CHIPS, and science legislation.

“So, just to be clear, is there a chance that there won't be a debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump this fall?” Doocy asked.

“Is that what you're excited about?” Jean-Pierre asked. “Is that what you want to see?”

“I would love to see a debate between Joe Biden and Donald Trump,” Doocy said.

“You keep asking me. You've asked me three, four, five times in different ways,” she said.

In response to Doocy's question about what Biden would do in the debate, Jean-Pierre said Biden would:[took] Republicans endorsed it during the last State of the Union address.
