In response to Trump’s challenge, President Biden displayed nonchalance, suggesting that it’s unsurprising for Trump to desire a debate with him.

“Well, if I were him, I’d want to debate me too,” the President told reporters in Las Vegas when asked about it. “He’s got nothing else to do,” he added.

Trump highlighted Biden’s departure from the tradition of participating in a Super Bowl interview, which has been upheld by past presidents.

Biden’s decision to forego the interview in both 2021 and 2022, according to Trump, underscores his alleged inability to articulate his thoughts.
