Debate DRAMA – Trump’s Absence Raises Questions!

( – The first Republican Debate will air on August 23rd, with top Republican presidential candidates discussing their political platforms and why Americans should vote for them. Donald Trump’s appearance at the event is still uncertain.

Trump repeatedly stated he would not attend the debate because he is the most popular GOP candidate in the presidential race. Trump’s decision to potentially skip the debate drew heavy criticism from his fellow Republicans, who believe all candidates should attend the discussions regardless of popularity or polling performances.

Republicans like Ron DeSantis criticized Trump’s absence from the debate, claiming that the former president must participate in the event and political discourse. Despite these criticisms, Trump will likely skip the debate, as other candidates will probably use his ongoing criminal cases against the former president.

President Joe Biden will also participate in the debate, although indirectly. During the debate, Biden’s campaign will be in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, to speak to various media outlets and discuss the shortcomings of a Republican presidency. Biden’s campaign will also be running ads in the region during the Republican debate to bolster the president’s popularity within Wisconsin. Wisconsin is a critical battleground state and could vote Republican or Democrat in next year’s highly contested election.

Ron DeSantis will be attending the event but is suffering a setback in his presidential campaign as his plan for the debate leaked before his public appearance. Releasing debate memos is required by law but is typically done quietly to avoid hindering a candidate’s performance ahead of a debate appearance. Among DeSantis’s planned debate topics are multiple attacks on Joe Biden and mainstream media, discussing DeSantis’s “positive vision,” and defending Donald Trump from any attacks other candidates like Chris Christie might use against the former president.

While President Biden will utilize the debate for his own media appearances, he still lags behind key contenders from the Republican Party in various polls. Biden’s campaign will have to convince independent voters and moderates to vote for the aging president, as his party is less supportive of him than during the 2020 election. Despite this setback, Biden remains confident that he’ll secure re-election in 2024 and serve as the United States president for four more years.
