Vice President Kamala Harris avoided committing to debating former President Donald Trump’s vice presidential pick. When the question was put to her during an interview with NBC News on Friday, Harris dodged it, saying, “We just got through the State of the Union. And I’m just so excited about what we accomplished last night and our president.”

Harris’ avoidance of the question falls right in line with the White House’s general evasion when it comes to a face-off with the Trump campaign.

When asked whether President Joe Biden would debate Trump before the general election in November, Harris also did not give a straight response.

Asked by ABC News correspondent Mary Bruce if Biden would commit to debating the GOP presumptive presidential nominee, Harris digressed to Biden’s State of the Union address on Thursday night, saying that the president portrayed himself as “passionate” and “principled.”

“But given what you argue is at stake here, will you take the chance to show voters more of what they saw last night to take on Trump directly in debates?” he said, adding, “We’ll get to that at some point, and we’ll deal with that,” Harris replied. “But the point is, right now, on this day after the State of the Union, I think the president laid down the facts for the American people in terms of what’s at stake. And I thought he did an extraordinary job.”

Trump challenged Biden to a debate a day before his State of the Union address. According to the GOP candidate, “It is important, for the Good of our Country, that Joe Biden and I Debate Issues that are so vital to America, and the American People. Therefore, I am calling for Debates, ANYTIME, ANYWHERE, ANYPLACE!”

“The Debates can be run by the Corrupt DNC, or their Subsidiary, the Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD). I look forward to receiving a response. Thank you for your attention to this matter!” he added in a post on Truth Social.

After seemingly evasive responses from his team indicating a lack of interest in Trump’s proposal, Biden himself said on Friday that he might be open to debating Trump. According to the 81-year-old whose mental capacity has been a huge concern for many American voters in recent months, his willingness to debate Trump would depend “on his behavior.”
