Fox News Proposes Vice Presidential Debate To Trump, Biden Campaign

Fox News Media has invited former President Donald Trump and President Joe Biden to participate in a vice presidential debate before the November election.

In a letter to both campaigns, the outlet requested the chance to host a vice presidential debate, proposing July 23, August 13 or any dates that come after both nomination conventions.

Fox News Media President Jay Wallace revealed that the proposed debate would be hosted by Bret Baier and Martha MacCallum who are “obvious choices as the faces of our political coverage.”

“In addition, FOX News Media has reached out to Virginia State University as a possible location, since it was selected by the CPD as the first historically Black College or University to host a Presidential debate,” Fox’s letter to the campaigns read.

“Despite not having a Democratic debate in 2016/2020, FOX News was able to secure town halls with Democratic candidates such as: Hillary Clinton, Bernie Sanders, Pete Buttigieg, Julian Castro, Amy Klobuchar and Kirsten Gillibrand.

In recognition of FOX News Media’s capabilities and reputation, we cordially extend an invitation to all concerned parties to discuss our proposal,” the letter added.

Trump accepted the debate invitation on Friday afternoon with a post to Truth Social, where he wrote, “On behalf of the future Vice President of the United States, who I have not yet chosen, we hereby accept the Fox Vice Presidential Debate, hopefully at Virginia State University, the first Historically Black College or University to host a Debate – Date to be determined.”

“I urge Vice President Kamala Harris to agree to this. MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!” the Republican presidential candidate added.

The Biden campaign has already accepted an invitation from CBS News for a vice presidential debate this summer that would be between Vice President Kamala Harris and Trump’s vice presidential running mate pick.

On Wednesday, Biden challenged Trump to two debates which would be different from the decades-old tradition organized by the Commission on Presidential Debates.

“Donald Trump lost two debates to me in 2020. Since then, he hasn’t shown up for a debate. Now he’s acting like he wants to debate me again. Well, make my day, pal. I’ll even do it twice. So let’s pick the dates, Donald. I hear you’re free on Wednesdays,” Biden said in his video.

Trump, who has called for a debate between himself and Biden, has agreed that “it is time for a debate to take place – even if it has to be held through the offices of the Commission on Presidential Debates, which are totally controlled by Democrats and who, as people remember, got caught cheating with me with debate sound levels.”

Speaking to Fox News Digital, Trump accepted the timeline proposed by Biden and settled for the first presidential debate to be held on CNN on June 27 while the second would be held on ABC News on Sept. 10.
