A Presidential Debate on X with Trump, Biden & RFK Jr.? Elon Musk says ‘Sure’

Now that president Biden and former president Trump have agreed to debate one another on CNN and ABC in the run up to November’s general election, there’s another candidate who wants in on that action.

Robert F. Kennedy Jr., who is running as an independent, has floated the idea of a presidential debate between himself and the presumptive Republican and Democratic nominees hosted on the social media platform X–formerly Twitter.

And Elon Musk appears to be on board.

Kennedy points out that Musk’s social media giant X commands a far larger audience than either CNN or ABC.

As an independent, RFK Jr. has been left out of the two scheduled debates because he has failed so far to reach the 15% threshold in four national polls and to have ballot access in enough states to theoretically win 270 electoral votes. But that could change as Kennedy continues to be added to state ballots.

Kennedy complained about his exclusion on X when the debates between Biden and Trump were announced last week.

Meanwhile, The Hill reports that Trump has indicated that he would have “no problem” with Kennedy being included in the debates, if he can reach the required threshold.

It’s not clear if Biden would still agree to participate in a debate that includes RFK Jr. The incumbent president insisted on certain conditions for debating Trump including not having a live audience in attendance.
