Former Vice President Joe Biden's campaign is refusing President Donald Trump's request to have more than three debates before the general election in November.

Biden Campaign Manager Jen O’Malley Dillon made the announcement Monday in a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates, the Washington Post reports. O'Malley Dillon made clear that the presumptive Democrat nominee would only take part in three presidential debates, as is standard procedure.

"Joe Biden looks forward to facing Donald Trump in a multi-debate series that the American people have come to expect from their leaders; we hope that President Trump would not break that tradition or make excuses for a refusal to participate," O'Malley Dillon wrote.
