Trump Claims CNN Proposed ‘Seated’ Debate with Biden

0:00

Former President Donald Trump recently claimed that CNN approached him with a proposal for a debate against incumbent President Joe Biden, where both candidates would be seated instead of standing. Trump made the statement during an appearance on the Impaulsive podcast, hosted by Logan Paul and Mike Majak.

According to Trump, he had to insist that the candidates stand for the June 27 debate, which he deemed a victory. However, he also stated that he would have agreed to the seated format if necessary.

During the podcast, Trump also said that he believes he would be in trouble with his people if he took questions like those asked on the show.

“I’ll be in trouble with my people like Biden says. I don’t have that problem. Well, first of all, he would never — he couldn’t do this interview. Have you asked him questions like this?” Trump said.

Paul and co-host Mike Majak said they hadn’t but signaled they would be willing to host the president.

“You know what chance you have of getting him on? I’d say less than 1%,” Trump said.

The discussion turned to Trump’s foreign policy, with the former president claiming that neither the conflicts between Ukraine and Russia nor Israel and Hamas would have occurred if he were still in office. He also suggested that the United States avoided nuclear war by not electing Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Impaulsive, which has over 4 million subscribers, typically features celebrities and celebrities-in-waiting. Thursday’s episode marked the first time hosting a political candidate, just four months ahead of the 2024 presidential election.

Trump is set to be sentenced on June 6 for his conviction on 34 counts of falsifying business records. Three days later, the Republican Party will hold its national convention, where Trump is expected to be named the party’s presidential nominee.
