Anyone want to bet that there will not be any debates between the 2 major candidates and that Mr. Trump is already working on his excuses. :)

Even if he showed, it wouldn't be a debate.

To be fair, there are no true debates in American politics and certainly not in campaigns.

If held, she will destroy him on the facts and he will claim that she obscured the truth using facts. It will be a wash unless Trump says something truly remarkable and offensive, which he is capable of doing.

He's already making excuses to back out. And lying. As usual.

The Republican nominee falsely claimed that Hillary Clinton was rigging the debates and that the NFL had complained to him in a letter—perhaps preparing excuses to avoid debating.

Late Friday night, he tweeted an accusation that Democrat Hillary Clinton was trying to rig the debate schedule:

As usual, Hillary & the Dems are trying to rig the debates so 2 are up against major NFL games. Same as last time w/ Bernie. Unacceptable!
— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 30, 2016

He repeated that thrust during an interview on ABC’s This Week. “Well, I'll tell you what I don't like. It's against two NFL games, I got a letter from the NFL saying, this is ridiculous, why are the debates—because the NFL doesn't want to go against the debates,” he said.

Trump was lying on both counts. There’s no evidence of Clinton tampering with debate dates, and as CNN’s Brian Stelter pointed out to Trump spokesman Jason Miller, the NFL released a statement saying, “While we obviously wish the debate commission could find another night, we did not send a letter to Trump.” Appearing on Reliable Sources, Miller hemmed and hawed over whether Trump had received a letter, even though it was by now clear he had not. (This fits with a pattern of Trump needlessly lying. He also claimed that he had recommended that the Republican convention be held in Cleveland, even though he was not a candidate or even a likely one at the time, and no evidence exists that he made such a recommendation.)
