Just because Trump is the Republican Party’s nominee for president, doesn’t mean he deserves to debate his Democratic opponent on national television.
For now, Joe Biden has committed to participating in the three scheduled presidential debates. I wish he would take a different path and tell Trump that if he doesn’t release his tax returns there will be no two-man debates. Trump’s ongoing refusal to be transparent about his financial past ought to forfeit him the right to participate in the nationally televised forums. And Biden would be on solid ground making that stand.
