Biden Campaign Outlines Strategy For First Debate Against Trump

Summary from the AllSides News Team

How is President Joe Biden preparing for his first presidential debate of this election cycle?

The Details: Biden is spending the week at Camp David, preparing to face off against former President Donald Trump by staging practice debates against his own lawyer, Bob Bauer, who also stood in as Biden’s Republican opponent in preparation for the 2020 presidential debates. Biden’s team expects Thursday’s presidential debate to include numerous questions regarding the president’s physical and mental strength, his economic and immigration record, and his family. Preparations are being overseen by his former chief of staff Ron Klain. A Biden campaign memo obtained by NBC News (Lean Left bias) outlined a week including 1,600 campaign events and a new advertisement campaign in the lead up to the debate.

Key Quotes: NBC News quoted Biden campaign spokesman Michael Tyler stating, “President Biden, who is fighting for the American people, and Donald Trump, who will walk on stage as a convicted felon fighting for himself no matter how much harm he inflicts on the American people.”

How The Media Covered It: Breitbart (Right bias) stated that the White House “would neither confirm nor deny in May whether Biden intends to use performance-enhancing drugs in preparation for the presidential debates,” adding that Klain did not respond to a request for comment regarding “whether any illegal substances” were included in Biden’s debate prep. The article did not include any evidence or support for these claims. This summary was developed with the help of AllSides' AI technology.
