McEnany Breaks Huge News Hours Before Trump-Biden Debate

McEnany Breaks Huge News Hours Before Trump-Biden Debate

Fox News host Kayleigh McEnany cautioned this week that President Joe Biden could risk "coming out hot" in his initial debate with former President Donald Trump.

In a conversation with host Sean Hannity on Fox News, McEnany reflected on her time as press secretary in the Trump administration and their debate preparations in 2020.

"We are going to see a different Joe — 'State-of-the-Union' Joe," McEnany stated. "The risk he runs is coming out hot because this man has a tendency to get angry — and anger is not a good look for him."

McEnany further predicted that Biden’s advisors might be steering him away from discussing his record.

"I was watching some CNN reporting two days ago and the advisers around Joe Biden have told him be careful not to talk about your record over the last three years, don’t harp on that, look forward not back," McEnany noted. "I can’t imagine a scenario where anyone around [President Trump] … would have looked at him and said ‘Don’t talk about your last four years, Mr. President.’"

"He had a record to stand on — Joe Biden’s advisers are saying ‘Don’t talk about what you’ve done.’ How troubling is that?" McEnany questioned.

WATCH:

Trump is reportedly planning to throw a "curveball" just before the first presidential debate on Thursday night against Biden.

According to an NBC News report, sources referred to as "people familiar with the situation" suggested that Trump might reveal his running mate before he and Biden take the stage at CNN headquarters.

Trump has previously mentioned he would announce his selected candidate before the Republican National Convention in Milwaukee, starting on July 15.

However, this timeline might have shifted, and Trump is reportedly contemplating a "curveball" that could unsettle Biden.

"People familiar with discussions about a pre-debate announcement had differing views about Trump’s leanings. One said he is eager to fill his ticket before he squares off with Biden. Another source said he would like the opportunity to throw a curveball to distract Biden before they meet but understands that such a move could create logistical and political complications," NBC reported.

Any news report's reliability depends on its sources, and anonymously sourced reports should always be approached with caution.

Nevertheless, a Trump decision on a running mate would certainly be a headline-grabbing move, potentially overshadowing the Atlanta matchup.

It would be typical of Trump, echoing his style since his presidential campaign launch from Trump Tower’s escalator in 2015.

Recent reports indicated that Trump’s "VP list" has been narrowed down to three names.

Following a video of Trump suggesting he had already made up his mind about his pick but hadn't revealed it yet, CNN’s Alayna Treene speculated that his original list had been reduced significantly.

"There’s so much speculation right now and a lot of anticipation over who Donald Trump is going to ultimately select. And this is the language we’ve heard Donald Trump say for a while, he’s often said that he knows who his choice is going to be," Treene remarked.

"However, from my conversations with Donald Trump’s team, they’re still not completely, or they haven’t come to a formal decision yet on who he is going to select as his running mate. What I do know is that he has really narrowed his list to three top contenders: That is Doug Burgum, J.D. Vance, and Marco Rubio, all people that they believe currently are at the top of his list," Treene added.

"But of course, this is Donald Trump we’re talking about. Whenever we try to predict who a candidate will pick for VP, it’s always a difficult task. It’s even harder with Donald Trump. And again, when I talk to his team, they say he is someone who changes his mind every day based on who he sees on TV, who he speaks with over the phone. And so until he formally makes his announcement, Donald Trump can change his mind up until the last minute," she continued.

Reports on Trump’s "VP list" have fluctuated for months.

Other recent reports speculated that Trump’s initial VP list included not just the three finalists, but also Senators Tim Scott (R-SC) and Tom Cotton (R-AR) as well as Reps. Byron Donalds (R-FL) and Elise Stefanik (R-NY).

Former Secretary of Housing and Urban Development Ben Carson has also been mentioned.

Trump announced earlier this week that he has chosen his vice president.

The former president declined to name the pick but confirmed he had made his decision when speaking to reporters before his rally in Philadelphia on Saturday.
