Republican National Committee Chairwoman Ronna McDaniel on Tuesday criticized the growing media push to scrap the presidential debates this fall. McDaniel argued that media figures are acting on behalf of the Biden campaign in making those demands and that Biden refusing to debate Trump in the lead-up to the 2020 election would be "disqualifying."

"I just want to say this," she added, "I think it is disqualifying. If you cannot debate in front of the American people, and make your case as to why you should be President, as to why you should go up against people like Putin or Xi, then you should not be President."
"I think if he doesn't debate, if he doesn't do all three [debates], he should be disqualified from actually running for President," McDaniel added.

This is a pretty good Biden clip. Nothing weird about it. I like how his laughs sounded particularly wheeze-like. Also reached a new level of C’MON MAN— Riley (@GiganticPingu) August 5, 2020

He doesn’t make sense. I can’t wait for the debates— Kambree (@KamVTV) August 5, 2020
WATCH: Joe Biden says he's "forward looking to" debating President Trump because "there gonna be plenty of time."
No wonder Biden doesn't want to debate Trump. Can you imagine 90 minutes of this?https://t.co/9YdXzZMH9b— Bill Mitchell (@mitchellvii) August 5, 2020
