Donald Trump: “When you’re way up, you don’t do debates”

On Thursday, April 27, former United States President Donald Trump visited New Hampshire for his campaign two days after US President Joe Biden launched his campaign for a second term in 2024. Minutes before Trump arrived at the DoubleTree by Hilton hotel in Manchester, New Hampshire, the crowd was chanting “We want Trump!”


In front of a Trump supporters’ audience, the former President said: “We are a nation in serious decline, a nation that has lost its way. We are led by a hopeless person, but we will win in 2024 and make America great again. We can do it. It's not too late.” Furthermore, he added about his 2024 run and his future rival and actual President, Joe Biden: “Next year we're going to make history together. We're going to win the New Hampshire primary for the third straight time. […] We are going to crush Joe Biden at the ballot box, and we are going to settle our unfinished business.”

Donald Trump didn’t hold back regarding his future opponent. He said: “The choice in this election is now between strength or weakness, between success or failure, between safety or anarchy, between peace or conflict, and prosperity or catastrophe.” He added: “It’s Biden who poses the threat to democracy because he is grossly incompetent, has no idea what he's doing, and basically he doesn't have a clue.”

Furthermore, the 45th United States President expressed his misunderstanding on why would he participate in the first presidential debate in August 2023, according to Associated Press. He said earlier this week on WABC radio: “When you’re way up, you don’t do debates.” However, the Republicans continue to prepare for the debate that would be held in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, and hosted by Fox News, said the Republican National Committee’s chairwoman on April 12.  

Donald Trump already has been absent from a presidential debate. In 2016, he refused to participate and held his event. Four years later, in 2020, Trump and his team refused to face Joe Biden in a debate because of the format change of it. Due to Trump's positive Covid-19 result, the Commission on Presidential Debates changed the format from a “live format” to a “virtual format,” which was “not acceptable” for Trump. 

Regarding one of his opponents, GOP New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu, Donald Trump said: “He should stop being a nasty guy and telling people that I won't win in the general election, which I will.”
