Trump has had a mantra of any time, anywhere, and any place when it comes to debating Joe Biden. 

Now it looks like Biden has used that even more to his advantage than first thought. Among the incumbent president’s proposed rules were no live audience, the liberal network CNN serving as broadcaster, and no RFK, Jr. 

Butnow, during an interview, Trump acknowledged there was one more condition that Biden insisted on, reports The Daily Caller. 

Trump told John Catsimatidis and Rita Cosby on 77 WABC AM that the Biden campaign is requesting that the candidates sit at a table for the entirety of the debate.

“I hear now we’re sitting at tables. I don’t want to sit at a table,” Trump said.

“I said, ‘No, let’s stand.’ But they want to sit at a table,” Trump continued. “So we’ll be sitting at a table as opposed to doing it the way you should be, in my opinion, in a debate.”

“But I agree to their requests because I want to debate him,” Trump told Catsimatidis and Cosby.

Standing could be a problem for Biden, who has appeared to have a hard time staying on his feet. In April, reports revealed that the president would no longer walk to Marine One by himself and that he has been wearing special shoes. 

The Republican frontrunner has asked for more debates, but Biden has said he will only do two. 

Trump and Biden will participate in two debates, with the first scheduled for June 27 at 9 p.m. Eastern Time, taking place at CNN’s studios in Atlanta, a key battleground state.

CNN announced that to maximize the candidates’ speaking time, there will be no live audience. Candidates must meet a threshold of at least 15 percent in four national polls of registered or likely voters that adhere to CNN’s criteria to qualify for the debates. 

The event will be moderated by CNN anchors Jake Tapper and Dana Bash.
