US House Speaker Nancy Pelosi Says Joe Biden Should Not Debate President Trump

The Hill: Pelosi says there shouldn't be any debates between Biden and Trump

Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) said Thursday she doesn’t think there should be any presidential debates ahead of the November election, arguing Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden shouldn't "legitimize" a discussion with President Trump.

“I don’t think that there should be any debates,” Pelosi told reporters. “I do not think that the president of the United States has comported himself in a way that anybody has any association with truth, evidence, data and facts.”

“I wouldn’t legitimize a conversation with him nor a debate in terms of the presidency of the United States,” she added.

WNU Editor: The US House Speaker is getting some blow-back for her remarks .... Nancy Pelosi isn't doing Joe Biden any favors in the debate over debates (Chris Cillizza, CNN). But she has become one of many who are now openly saying that Joe Biden should not debate President Trump, even though the candidate is saying that he will. I still believe that the Biden campaign will look for an excuse to not debate. He was not impressive during the Democrat debates, and I expect the same result when he debates President Trump. There is also growing talk that he may do the first debate, and decline to do the other two after that. We shall see.
