Will Trump cancel debate with Biden again? Internet says POTUS is 'terrified' as he calls Kristen Welker 'no good'

Social media feels that 'he has decided not to attend the final debate. But he won't announce this decision until Thursday, which will force Biden to waste time preparing for it'

The kind of disinterest shown by President Donald Trump in facing Democratic nominee Joe Biden for the final debate after the second face-off was canceled and the way he keeps attacking NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker, who is set to host the third presidential debate, is making people wonder if POTUS wants to opt-out of the debate. 

"Kristen Welker. She's a radical Democrat. She deleted her entire account. But I've known her, she's been screaming questions at me for a long time. She's no good," Trump said at a campaign rally in Prescott, Arizona on Monday, October 19. 

The founder of Talking Points Memo, a political, news and opinion website, retweeted a clip of Trump's remarks against Welker, adding, "He wants out. Trying to provoke the commission to cancel the debate." His tweet grabbed attention as many others chimed in with similar thoughts. 



 

 

"Trump is terrified of being back on a debate stage with Joe Biden," one said, while another wrote, "I think it ends with him waking out mid debate." A third commented, "His parents sent him AWAY to military school when he hit this level of contumaciousness as a teen. They were sick of his exhausting s**t, too." 

Another remarked, "I really think if Trump were to cancel the last debate it would be the most popular thing he did all year. At this point, it feels like a rescheduled game between 2 teams that aren't going to make the playoffs that comes after the regular season is over." Someone else wrote, "I'm certain Donald has decided not to attend the final debate. But he won't announce this decision until Thursday, which will force Biden to waste time preparing for it." 



 

 



 

 



 

 

 



 

 

 



 

 

Earlier on, Trump showed disinterest in front of reporters in Air Force One while saying that he will debate Biden. "I will participate but it’s very unfair that they changed the topics and it’s very unfair that again we have an anchor who’s totally biased," he said. 

Just a day earlier, the president had slammed Welker via a tweet after a recent report claimed that she had ties with the liberal party. Donald Trump Jr, who has been actively involved in his dad's reelection campaign, cited a New York Post article titled 'Kristen Welker, upcoming presidential debate moderator, has deep Democrat ties' and tweeted, "Yikes! Here we go again." Retweeting his son's post, Trump wrote, "She’s always been terrible & unfair, just like most of the Fake News reporters, but I’ll still play the game. The people know! How’s Steve Scully doing?" 



 

 

The president's tweet referred to the controversial actions of C-SPAN host and producer Steve Scully who was supposed to moderate but finally canceled the second presidential debate. Scully sent a tweet to former White House Communications Director Anthony Scaramucci, who has presently turned against his ex-boss, throwing his support behind the Biden campaign. 

The report which sparked the POTUS' wrath, claimed that Welker's parents, Julie and Harvey Welker have donated tens of thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates, according to the data collected from the Federal Election Commission. Some of the donations have been directed more recently toward the Biden campaign. They also reportedly made efforts to elect Hillary Clinton in 2016 and Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012.

Welker's Facebook page shows a photo where the reporter is posing with the Obama family on Christmas at the White House in 2012. She was registered as a Democrat in Washington DC in 2012 and in Rhode Island in 2004. Her current political party registration is not listed.
