Chris Christie, Ron DeSantis call out Trump for not showing up to debate

Joe Biden mocked the second GOP debate with a three-word takedown of leading Republican candidate Donald Trump, who did not even bother to show up for it.

The president took to X, the social media platform formally known as Twitter, to repost a video of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis complaining that Mr Trump had again refused to debate his 2024 rivals.

“[Donald Trump] owes it to you to defend his record where they added 7.8 trillion to the debt. That set the stage for the inflation that we have now,” Mr DeSantis said on the stage on Wednesday night. “Couldn’t agree more,” Mr Biden’s personal account wrote above the video.

Users of X were quick to applaud the president’s quick-fire response and mocking Republican complaints that an intern was posting for the president.

“He doesn’t need an intern when the GOP ‘candidates’ are making his arguments for them,” wrote one user.

“Dark Brandon is undefeated,” wrote another, while one user stated, “Dark Brandon, that was smooooooth.”
