“Fox & Friends” co-host Steve Doocy suggested this week that former President Donald Trump may be helping President Joe Biden by skipping the Republican Party’s first presidential primary this week, arguing that by doing so he opened the door for Biden to skip debating Trump if Trump becomes the Republican Party nominee.

Doocy’s remarks on Monday come after Trump cited a CBS News national poll at the start of the week that showed him at 62%, Florida Governor Ron DeSantis at 16%, and everyone else in the low single digits to explain why he did not plan to make a showing at the debates.

He added that he believes that voters already know who he is and concluded by stating: “I WILL THEREFORE NOT BE DOING THE DEBATES!”

Doocy said, “Unfortunately, by skipping the debates, Donald Trump may actually be helping Joe Biden because he’s giving Joe Biden an excuse for not debating Donald Trump.”

“That’s one of the things that Ronna McDaniel told the former president when she was trying to get him to do the first debate,” he continued. “But he said, nope, not going to do it.”

Co-host Brian Kilmeade responded, “I don’t know how that would be, though. How could Joe Biden rationalize not going against Donald Trump?”

Doocy answered, “Because if Donald Trump says, ‘everybody knows me, I don’t need to do it’, then Joe Biden goes, ‘everybody knows me, I’m president’.”

“Joe Biden would love to have an excuse not to be able to debate,” co-host Ainsley Earhardt added.

“I mean, if [Biden] doesn’t want to do the debate, I could totally understand it because he can’t get through a sentence,” Kilmeade added. “If you watched him over the weekend, just slur his way through that mini summit and who knows what’s going to happen in Hawaii.”

Doocy concluded, “Joe Biden would love to see Trump not do it, then he’s got a perfect [response]: ‘I don’t have to do it either then, he didn’t do it!'”
