Biden and Trump both see opportunity in June debate, but they're preparing in different ways

·1 min

Two presidents who have never debated before are set to face off in a CNN debate next month. Both President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump are confident they can outperform each other, with each camp believing that the other’s diminished state from four years ago will be evident during the 90-minute live TV event. While Biden is planning extensive debate preparation sessions, Trump’s advisers haven’t had any formal conversations about his preparation. Both campaigns are focused on the potential impact the debate could have on undecided voters. Biden’s team aims to taunt and confront Trump, while Trump’s less structured preparation aligns with his freewheeling style.
