There are three credible reasons why Donald Trump may decide to sit out the three debates with Hillary Clinton, The Washington Post says.

According to Post reporter Aaron Blake, they are:

  • Trump is "not very good" at debates
  • Trump "can be baited, and Clinton is good at it"
  • Trump, who rarely backs down, has "already hinted strongly" he won't participate

"Yes, Trump won the Republican primary, which featured plenty of debates. But it was largely in spite of his lackluster debate performances," Blake writes.

As well, he adds, "Clinton is a very studied and capable debater who will spend plenty of time figuring out ways to bait Trump in these contests. And it's not hard to see him getting drawn into all kinds of exchanges that reinforce his many established liabilities."

The debates are being planned and supervised by the non-profit Commission on Presidential Debates.
