Vice President Kamala Harris agrees to debate with Trump’s possible VP pick

Vice President Kamala Harris has agreed to debate the possible choice of former President Donald Trump as her running mate.

Harris accepted an invitation to debate Trump’s possible vice presidential pick over the summer, offering July 23 and August 13 as options.

Trump is expected to announce his vice presidential pick at the GOP convention, which begins July 15.

“I’m not saying it’s all 100 percent, but you’re getting close,” Trump said of choosing his running mate. “I’ll do it in Milwaukee. We’ll have a good time.”

A Biden campaign official told Politico that they are “looking forward to the Trump campaign agreeing to one of these dates so that the full debate schedule for this campaign can be set.”

The debate will be broadcast by CBS News and hosted in the network’s studios.

In a letter obtained by Fox News Digital, the Biden-Harris campaign proposed that the first debate take place in late June, after Trump’s criminal trial in New York will likely be completed after Biden returns from his meeting with world leaders at the G-7 summit.

A second presidential debate would take place in September before early voting begins.

The Biden-Harris campaign has requested that the debates be held in a television studio, with microphones that automatically cut off when a speaker’s time is up.

The letter also requested that the debates involve only the two candidates and the moderator — without “an in-person audience with noisy or disruptive supporters and donors” that Trump thrives on.

They also want debates without the participation of Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. or other independent or third-party candidates.
