President Trump said the ball is in Joseph R. Biden’s court when it comes to an extended debate with podcasting star Joe Rogan.

“I do!” Mr. Trump exclaimed on Twitter when mixed martial artist Tim Kennedy broached the subject.

“On my podcast with @joerogan he offered to moderate a debate between @JoeBiden and @realDonaldTrump It would be four hours with no live audience,” Mr. Kennedy wrote Sunday night. “Just the two candidates, cameras, and their vision of how to move this country forward. Who wants this? #debates #Election2020.”

Mr. Rogan said in April that he’s “exhausted” with biased reporters who take every “chance to s—t” on the president instead of offering objective coverage.

The iconic UFC commentator also said during recent podcasts that he worries Mr. Biden is facing cognitive decline, which the Democrat’s campaign denies.

“A long-form debate with a neutral moderator,” Mr. Kennedy added. “No fake audience reactions.No biased questions. Neutral camera positions. No sound bite length responses. Just their respective policies explained to us. Please @realDonaldTrump and @JoeBiden make it happen. #debate #joerogandebate.”

Mr. Kennedy’s tweet exploded on Twitter with nearly 140,000 likes and was shared over 25,000 times.
