Will Trump attend the debate on June 27? [View all]

I started noticing some social media chatter a few days ago that Trump will likely skip the upcoming debate on June 27. That chatter seems to be increasing now that CNN has announced mics will be muted along with its other rules. He also has only faced sycophantic questioners since he left the White House (and he wasn't giving a deposition). It's certainly rare waters for him as few people seem to realize he is incapable of stringing together coherent sentences. So, will he stick to his word about debating any time, any place?

Yep. There are some DUers who consistently make predictions about Trump that are based on their wishes, not reality onenote Jun 16 #15
What's distressing is that there's 59% of DUers in this poll expecting him to self destruct for us Bucky Jun 16 #17
