Hillary Clinton campaign chair John Podesta on Monday said that Clinton will participate in all three presidential debates, challenging Donald Trump to agree to the schedule.
“Secretary Clinton looks forward to participating in all three presidential debates scheduled by the independent debate commission,” Podesta said in a statement. “With so much at stake in the fall elections, she believes these debates will provide the American people with an important opportunity to hear from the candidates on issues critical to the country’s future.”
He then alluded to Trump’s complaints that Clinton and Democrats tried to “rig the debates.” Trump cited as proof the fact that two of the debates fall on the same night as NFL games.
“The only issue now is whether Donald Trump is going to show up to debate at the date, times, places and formats set by the commission last year through a bipartisan process,” Podesta said in the statement. “We will accept the commission’s invitation and expect Donald Trump to do the same.”
