Biden Rejects Pre-Debate Ear Inspection Despite Agreeing To It Days Ago

Joe Biden’s campaign is reportedly not willing to undergo an ear inspection for electronic devices prior to his debate with President Trump Tuesday night.

Biden's refusal comes mere days after he agreed to the condition.

Team Trump requested an inspection of both candidates' ears by a third party to make sure no one was being coached in the debate.

“Joe Biden’s campaign agreed to an inspection for electronic ear pieces at tonight’s debate several days ago but are now declining, a source familiar tells me,” the New York Post’s Ebony Bowden reported.

Then Trump 2020's Director of Communications, Tim Murtaugh, tweeted in response, "Can confirm."

White House Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany also reported the news.

In addition to refusing an ear inspection, Biden’s team also wanted a break every 30 minutes for the former vice president.

That request was denied.

Murtaugh said in a statement, “Joe Biden’s handlers several days ago agreed to a pre-debate inspection for electronic earpieces but today abruptly reversed themselves and declined.” “Biden’s handlers have asked for multiple breaks during the debate, which President Trump doesn’t need, so we have rejected that request,” he added.

The first 2020 presidential debate takes place Tuesday at 9:00 ET.
