Biden and Trump Set to Officially Face Off in First 2024 Debate on June 27

In a significant development for the upcoming 2024 presidential election, President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump have agreed to participate in their first debate of the year, scheduled for June 27. This decision comes after a series of public exchanges between the two candidates on Wednesday morning, culminating in a mutual acceptance of an invitation from CNN.

The debate, which will be held without an audience and moderated by a team from CNN, marks a historically early showdown between the two presidential hopefuls. It sets the stage for what promises to be a contentious and closely watched series of debates leading up to the November election.

The Biden campaign had previously proposed the idea of two televised debates, one in late June and another in early September, in a letter sent to the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD). The letter suggested that the debates should be hosted by television networks that previously hosted a Republican primary debate in 2016 and a Democratic primary debate in 2020. This proposal aimed to ensure a fair and balanced platform for both candidates, avoiding any potential claims of bias or favoritism.

In response, Donald Trump quickly accepted the challenge, expressing his readiness to debate President Biden on the proposed dates. This marks a significant moment in the 2024 election cycle, as the two leading candidates publicly commit to engaging in direct discourse on the most pressing issues facing the country.

The decision to hold the first debate on June 27 comes after a period of intense speculation and anticipation regarding the format and timing of the debates. With the early scheduling, both candidates are looking to set the tone for the final months of the campaign, seeking to influence voters and sway public opinion in their favor.

This first debate will take place against the backdrop of significant political and global events, including the conclusion of Trump's hush money trial in New York and Biden's planned trips to France and Italy. The debate will also occur ahead of the start of two criminal trials for the president’s son, Hunter Biden, adding an additional layer of complexity to the political landscape.

The Biden and Trump campaigns have agreed on the terms of the debate, including the selection of moderators from regular network personnel to avoid any perception of partisanship. The format will also include strict time limits for answers and responses, ensuring an even distribution of speaking time between the two candidates.

As the countdown to the first debate begins, both President Biden and former President Trump are expected to intensify their preparations, honing their messaging and strategies in anticipation of what is sure to be a pivotal moment in the 2024 presidential race.
