Trump says he wants to debate Biden now "for the good of the country"
Why it matters: Trump has refused to take part in any of the Republican presidential primary debates.
The other side: "Immediately? Well, if I were him, I'd want to debate me, too. He's got nothing else to do," Biden told reporters when asked for a response to Trump's comments.
Meanwhile, Reuters reports that a spokesperson for Trump's Republican 2024 rival Nikki Haley said the GOP primary frontrunner is "too chicken" to debate the former U.S. ambassador to the UN.
- "Now it's time for Trump to man up and agree to debate Nikki Haley," Haley campaign spokesperson Olivia Perez-Cubas added.
- "Nikki is ready to put her conservative record and vision for a strong and proud America up against Trump's campaign of chaos and vendettas."
