Vivek Answers Question About Upcoming Debate

Buckle up because the 2024 presidential race is heating up with some intriguing developments! Former President Donald Trump recently dropped a tantalizing hint about the first debate with President Joe Biden, set for Thursday, June 27. Let’s dig into what we know so far.

At a campaign stop in Philadelphia over the weekend, Trump teased that his future running mate will "most likely" be present at the upcoming presidential debate. He told NBC News, “They’ll be there. I think we have a lot of people coming.” While Trump has decided on his pick in his "mind," he kept the identity a secret, stating, "nobody knows" who it is yet.

Trump has been considering several Republicans for the vice president role. Among the frontrunners are J.D. Vance, Doug Burgum, and Marco Rubio. Insiders suggest these three have risen to the top of his list, and Trump has already sent vetting documents to a few potential candidates. The big reveal could come by the Republican National Convention in mid-July, though an earlier announcement is still possible.

Both Trump and Biden have secured enough delegates to face off as the major party candidates in November, even though they’re not officially their party’s nominees until the conventions this summer.

The first of their two general election debates will take place on Thursday in Atlanta, moderated by CNN anchors Jake Tapper and Dana Bash, and without a live audience. The second debate is scheduled for September 10, hosted by ABC News with David Muir and Linsey Davis as moderators.

This year’s debates are expected to be particularly intense. At 81, Biden is the oldest president in U.S. history, surpassing Trump, who is now 78. These debates will serve as crucial moments for both candidates to demonstrate their mental sharpness and ability to lead the nation despite their advanced ages.

Adding to the drama, Trump was recently found guilty of 34 felony charges in Manhattan, making him the first former president to face a criminal trial. The charges relate to falsifying business records to conceal a conspiracy during the 2016 election. Trump, facing up to four years in prison, will be back in court for sentencing on July 11, just days before the Republican National Convention.

As the countdown to Thursday’s debate begins, all eyes will be on Trump’s potential running mate and how both candidates handle the pressure of these high-stakes confrontations. It’s sure to be a spectacle, so stay tuned for more updates on this riveting presidential race!
