Ready for presidential debate hosted by Joe Rogan: Trump

1 min read

Donald Trump has said he is willing to take part in a presidential debate hosted by the comedian and podcast star Joe Rogan.

The idea was mooted by Rogan on a recent episode of his show, which frequently ranks near the top of global podcast charts.

“First of all, I want no one else in the room, just the three of us,” he said.

“And you’d have to stream it live so no one can edit it, and I would want them in there for hours.

“If they wanted to do that – they both wanted to come here in Austin, sit down and have a debate – I would 100% do it.”

Rogan’s guest on the podcast, MMA fighter Tim Kennedy, tweeted about the idea and asked “who wants this?”, to which the US president replied: “I do!”

Three debates are already scheduled between Mr Trump and Democratic rival Joe Biden, with the first on 29 September in Cleveland.

A podcast debate would be a break from tradition, but could see the two candidates reach a new audience.

That may be because Rogan – who previously backed Bernie Sanders for the Democratic nomination – has been scathing of the 77-year-old.

The broadcaster has previously said Mr Trump would “eat that guy alive” – and also compared Mr Biden to “having a flashlight with a dying battery and going for a long hike in the woods”.
