President Joe Biden’s campaign shot down former President Donald Trump’s offer this week to play a round of golf with a $1 million donation to a charity of his choice on the line after Biden initially accepted the offer during his disastrous debate performance two weeks ago.

During a rally on Tuesday in Florida, Trump challenged Biden to debate him again this week. He also challenged him to an 18-hole golf match on Doral’s Blue Monster in which Trump would give him a 20-stroke advantage and promised to donate $1 million to a charity of Biden’s choice if Biden won.

The Biden Campaign responded to the challenges by completely ignoring Trump’s offer for a second debate this week after polling showed after the first debate that the overwhelming majority of the country said that Trump won the debate and up to 80% of voters said Biden was “too old” to run again.

The campaign then refused Trump’s proposed golf match, even though Biden was the one who initially made the offer at the debate.

“Look, I’d be happy to have a driving contest with him. I got my handicap, which, when I was vice president, down to a 6,” Biden claimed. “And by the way, I told you before I’m happy to play golf if you carry your own bag. Think you can do it?”

Biden also made the offer in late March during an event with comedian Stephen Colbert where he revealed that he first made the offer to Trump back in 2021.

Biden’s campaign lashed out at Trump, falsely suggesting that Trump has been in hiding for 12 days when, in reality, Trump’s campaign noted that Trump has simply removed himself from the spotlight so that the world can see that “Democrats are in disarray.”

“Why get in the way of them shooting at each other?” the Trump campaign said.

The statement from the Biden campaign made numerous false claims, including suggesting that Trump supported Project 2025, which he has spoken out against; making highly misleading claims about job creation and losses under both administrations that do not take into consideration the pandemic; and making false claims about Trump not standing up to Russia.

“Joe Biden doesn’t have time for Donald Trump’s weird antics – he’s busy leading America and defending the free world,” the statement claimed, even after Biden told Democrats this week that he needs to cut off events at night so he can sleep more and work less.

Biden already maintains a light schedule that mostly consists of events between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. and a daily nap.
