Nancy Pelosi told reporters that she personally doesn’t think there should be debates between former Vice President Joe Biden, the Democratic nominee for President, and President Trump ahead of the 2020 elections.
PELOSI: “Don’t tell anybody I told you this— especially don’t tell Joe Biden. I don’t think there should be any debates…”

“Don’t tell anybody I told you this, especially don’t tell Joe Biden,” Pelosi said.
“I don’t think that there should be any debates. I do no think that the President of the United States has comported himself in a way that anybody that has any association with truth, evidence, data, and facts. I wouldn’t legitimize a conversation with him, nor a debate, in terms of the presidency of the United States,” she explained.
“Now I know that the Biden Campaign thinks in a different way about this, but I thought what he did in 2016 was disgraceful, stalking Hillary Clinton like that. I was disappointed that the press didn’t say ‘go back to your station, you don’t own this stage, you have your own podium, she has hers.’”
Pelosi added that she expects Trump to “act in a way that is beneath the dignity of the presidency. He does that every day,” adding “but I think he will also belittle what the debates are supposed to be about and they’re not to be about skullduggery on the part of somebody who has no respect for the office he holds much less the democratic process.”
Moreover, Pelosi said Trump’s behavior is consistent with his ‘undermining’ of the election process.
The Biden and Trump campaigns have agreed to hold three debates before November. They are scheduled to take place on Sept. 29, Oct. 15, and Oct. 22, The Washington Post first reported.
