Transcript for Biden shares his thoughts on future debates against Trump
president trump had a town hall meeting tonight, as well. During that town hall meeting, he was asked several times whether he took a covid test the the day of your last debate. Supposed to have another debate a week from tonight. Just two quick questions. Do you expect that debate to will you demand that president trump take a test that day and that it be negative before you debate? Yeah. By the way, before I came up here, I took another test, I've been taking it every day, the deep test, you know, the one, they go in both. Because I wanted to be able to -- if I had not passed that test, I didn't want to come here and not expose anybody. And I just think it's -- it's just decency to be able to determine whether or not you are -- you're clear. And it's not -- I'm less concerned about me, but the people, the guys with the cameras, the people working in the, you know, the secret service guys you drive up with, all those people. So, yes, I believe he will do that. Look, I'm going to abide by what the commission rules call for. I was prepared to debate him remotely, which was supposed to happen. And he said he wouldn't do that. You know, a virtual debate. Our town hall. He didn't want to do that. That -- I didn't set those rules. The commission set the rules. So, whatever rules they set, I'm confident that the Cleveland clinic is the one overseeing it, I think they're not going to let happen what happened last time, they're going to demand that it's safe. You expect to be there? I expect to be there. Mr. Vice president, thank you for your time tonight. Thank you to all the questioners here. It was really terrific I think you did a service to our democracy tonight. Thank you very much.
