The National Committee of the Republic prohibits its prospective candidates from participating in the official election debates held by the Commission on Presidential Debates on claims of bias against the GOP.
RNC chairwoman Ronna McDaniel said in a letter to the commission by Acesparks on Thursday that the CPD “as an honest and non-partisan actor intends to stone the meaningful reforms needed to restore confidence in the Republican Party.” , ”Party candidates will hold a debate“ elsewhere ”.
Candidates have been involved in CPD discussions for more than 30 years.
McDaniel’s statement came after a series of conversations between the RNC and the commission, according to Acesparks, and after former President Donald Trump was upset about how the debate went.
“The RNC must ensure that its future presidential candidates have the opportunity to compete on an equal playing field with their opponents,” McDaniel said in a letter.
In a statement to the Post, the CPD said it would “work directly with the candidates” and that plans for the 2024 election would not change.
“The CPD’s plans for 2024 are based on a commitment to justice, neutrality, and helping the American public learn about candidates and issues,” the organization said.
Trump spoke openly about how the discussions were conducted, and sometimes even about his feelings during the events.
“For now, I have a lot of respect for how you handle it, I have to say,” Trump told NBC News reporter Kristen Welker in the final debate of the presidential election, but even though he complained on stage, he didn’t force Biden enough to fracking. .
Trump said Chris Wallace, who was with Acesparks at the time, was biased against Biden in the debate, posting a picture of himself on Twitter on one side of the scene where Wallace and Biden were confronted on the other side. The image was in the style of the old arcade game’s character selection screen – with the abbreviation “VS” in the Street Fighter series font.
The former president also clashed with NBC News correspondent Savanna Guthrie several times in the election hall.
