DEBATES/JOE BIDEN/TRUMP AS PRESIDENT: [Andrea Mitchell: “Would you consider not debating the president?”]
“I’m gonna debate him. Now I know for certain that— I’m going to be a fact-checker on the floor, while I’m debating him… It’s just one lie after another. Lying, lying, lying lying. One after another. But the debates are going to take place.
I think everyone knows this man has a somewhat pathological tendency not to tell the truth.”
