Former President Donald Trump suggested that there is a big expectation in Thursday’s first 2024 presidential debate with Joe Biden as his potential vice president may join him at the debate. Interviewed on NBC News the same day, Trump self-assuredly responded to the question about his yet-to-be-named running mate: “They’ll be there,” Trump said when asked about the lack of an announced running mate, adding: “I think we have a lot of people coming”.

Although Trump has decided on who is going to be his partner in the vice presidency within the Republican Party, people still do not know him. They say he has sent out vetting documents with several personalities expected to be in the menu with insiders indicating that Vance, Burgum, and Rubio are top favorites.

While the presumptive nominee claims that the final decision in the process will be made at the Republican National Convention in mid-July at the latest, the announcement has not yet been made.

Upcoming Debate Dynamics

Like any other election, not only Trump but also Biden is a presumptive nominee of his party and is awaiting the official nominations from the summer conventions.

The tension of the last debate, which will take place in Atlanta with the participation of the hosts of CNN, Jake Tapper and Dana Bash, is an important stage before the general elections. Further leads in the debate are scheduled for September 10 sponsored by ABC News.

This electoral face-off has emerged at the backdrop of an increasing concern about the advanced age of both the contenders, 78 and 81 years respectively, while both attempted to assure the voter base that they are fit enough for the task.

These are important platforms that can address these concerns and present the formulated policy ideals to the American voters. Mr. Trump agreed to attend the debate, however, severe legal issues were putting him at the forefront; the most recent of such cases entailing, including first degree fraud and falsifying business records.

The case claims that Trump thus sought to cover up other things regarding the election of 2016 with Russians. His sentencing, initially imminent just prior to the Republican National Convention, compounded this politics further.
