Fox News anchor Chris Wallace closed out “Fox News Sunday” by saying that presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden’s campaign turned down an interview, but promised to “keep asking every week.” Talk about low energy coming from the Biden basement!
“In our interview last week with President Trump, he questioned whether his Democratic opponent Joe Biden could handle a similar encounter,” Wallace said. “Well this week we asked the Biden campaign for an interview, and they said the former vice president was not available.”
Wallace was referring to President Donald Trump’s own interview with the Fox News anchor when he said Biden would be “crying for mommy” under similar media scrutiny.

“We’ll keep asking every week,” Wallace promised.
During an “America’s Newsroom” appearance last week, Wallace gave Trump credit for sitting through his questions. Wallace spent the contentious interview pushing back on many of Trump’s claims and fact-checking him. The Fox News host appeared to appreciate the president’s willingness to sit down and answer tough questions, saying afterwards that “he had answers” – regardless of whether or not Americans agreed or disagreed with what he said, according to the Daily Caller.
“[Trump] is out there in this broiling heat with me for an hour, took all the questions,” he said. “You can like his answers or dislike them, but he had answers and Joe Biden hasn’t faced that kind of scrutiny, hasn’t faced that kind of exposure yet. You’ve got to feel at some point, he’s going to come out from the basement.”
If you can’t sit with Chris Wallace for an hour, like Trump did, how can you sit with China or Putin? Biden campaign declines 'Fox News Sunday' interview, 1 week after Chris Wallace's Trump sitdownhttps://t.co/yRv5a6HZjP

The Trump campaign has hit Biden for months for abstaining from holding rallies and news conferences while continuing to do interviews amid the coronavirus pandemic. While Biden recently has returned to the stump, Trump and his allies continued to mock the former vice president for “hiding” in his home in Delaware.
