President Donald Trump slammed the Commission on Presidential Debates, saying it poses as bipartisan but is actually “stacked with Trump Haters & Never Trumpers.”
The president spoke out on the upcoming presidential debates during the 2020 election in a series of tweets Monday, saying the Commission on Presidential Debates is “stacked” with people who dislike him. The Commission on Presidential Debates board members include John C. Danforth, who called Trump “the most divisive president in our history,” and University of Notre Dame President Rev. John I. Jenkins, who issued a statement against Trump’s travel ban in 2017.
Board member Newton N. Minow accused Trump of ignoring ethical principles, revealing classified information and insulting world leaders, and “condemning and seeking to discredit judges, science, the news media and, indeed, any source of authority that disagreed with him.”
The commission did not respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.
Trump said he is looking forward to taking on “whoever the lucky person is who stumbles across the finish line in the little watched Do Nothing Democrat Debates.” “The problem is that the so-called Commission on Presidential Debates is stacked with Trump Haters & Never Trumpers,” the president tweeted. “3 years ago they were forced to publicly apologize for modulating my microphone in the first debate against Crooked Hillary.”
