He is threatening to sidestep the nonprofit group charged with running presidential debates.

President Donald Trump made clear Monday that he intends to participate in at least three general election debates, but he is threatening to sidestep the nonprofit group charged with running them.

“I look very much forward to debating whoever the lucky person is who stumbles across the finish line in the little watched Do Nothing Democrat Debates,” Trump tweeted Monday morning after The New York Times reported that he was considering skipping them entirely.

Trump said his record “is so good” that “perhaps I would consider more than 3 debates.” But he also complained, without evidence, that the Commission on Presidential Debates is “stacked with Trump Haters & Never Trumpers” and threatened to bypass them.

    Trump’s afraid because he has no command of facts and figure. No wonder he is wary of participating in the debates.

    He can only say things like “best economy,” “best President,” etc. No substance, just talking off the top of his head and repeating his inane mantras.

      Trump… afraid?

      You must be smoking weed already!

      Trump is never AFRAID! He is a strike back hero!
