‘My point is that for many Americans this will be the first and longest time they see Joe Biden during this campaign’

FRIEDMAN: “My point is that for many Americans this will be the first and longest time they see Joe Biden during this campaign. These three debates. They’re going to be huge. Because of the Coronavirus the vice president, you know, has to really limit his exposure. He has a lot riding on these debates. My point was simply that people make rules for debates all the time. What size the podium should be. Who should be the questioners. Why not make telling the truth a condition? It’s not a bad idea. Why not make equal transparency on revealing one’s tax returns? Biden disclosed his tax returns the last three years. Why not Trump?

In order to get close to the president.”
