Yang says Biden “licking his chops to debate” Trump and “Joe’s going to clean his clock”

While some Democrat strategists have worried about Joe Biden participating in debates with President Trump, ex-Presidential contender Andrew Yang showed nothing but confidence for Biden.

Appearing on CNN, Andrew Yang claimed “I think Joe Biden is licking his chops to debate Donald Trump. I think he has been waiting for it for months. I have been on the debate stage with Joe. Joe’s going to clean his clock. Nothing will hold him back from doing that.”

Per Newsweek, Democratic strategists and supporters of Vice President Joe Biden are urging him not to debate President Donald Trump in the lead-up to Election Day, citing Trump’s publicity stunts and disregard for the rules in 2016. Meanwhile Biden backers, including some conservatives, applauded the University of Notre Dame and the University of Michigan for cancelling their scheduled debates over COVID-19 concerns.

Former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart joined several Democratic Party strategists in bluntly advising Biden, “whatever you do, don’t debate Trump.” Speaking on CNN Saturday, Lockhart said Trump shouldn’t be given another platform which will enable him to “repeat lies,” which he said occurred in the 2016 debates against Hillary Clinton.
