Former President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign formally asked the Commission on Presidential Debates on Thursday to move up its fall schedule as soon as possible, potentially trying to pressure President Joe Biden into earlier debates in a heated election season.

“President Trump is willing to debate anytime, anyplace, and anywhere – and the time to start these debates is now,” the letter from the Trump campaign said.

The Biden campaign has not yet committed to any debates. The Biden campaign on Thursday said Trump is playing politics with his repeated requests for early debates, citing a comment the president made in February: “If I were him, I’d want to debate me, too. He’s got nothing else to do.”

Trump refused to debate Republican opponents during the GOP primary. Before he clinched the Republican nomination, he claimed he didn’t want to let his former challengers, such as former South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley and Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis, take shots at him as he led the Republican field.

But the former president looks like he’s taking a decidedly different tactic with regard to the general election against Biden.

“I think it is important that we debate and the earlier the better because people have to find out what is going on with America,” Trump told Fox News Digital as the letter went to the debate commission.
