Joe Biden has pledged to continue to debate President Trump, the Democratic nominee’s deputy campaign manager told reporters after the two candidates’ first encounter devolved into a chaotic scene, according to a report.
“I don’t know how many different ways we can say it. Yes, we are going to do the debates,” Kate Bedingfield said, The Hill reported.
“I would imagine there will be some additional conversations [with the Commission on Presidential Debates]. But yeah, we are committing to attending the debates,” she added.
Biden’s running mate Sen. Kamala Harris also suggested that the former veep planned to debate the president again on Oct. 15 and Oct. 22.
“Joe Biden’s never going to refuse to talk to the American people,” Harris said on CNN said when asked if Biden should continue taking part in the debates.
Throughout the first debate Tuesday night at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Fox News host Wallace repeatedly chastised both candidates — but particularly Trump — for interrupting him and each other.
