President Donald Trump's attorney Rudy Giuliani has sent a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates on behalf of the Trump campaign asking that either a fourth presidential debate be held or the last debate be moved forward. He said Thursday that he believes there is a good chance that the campaign's wishes will come true. 

"We have been negotiating this for four weeks, and we wrote the letter really because we have been through a number of different possibilities," the former New York City mayor said on Fox News' "Fox and Friends." 

Giuliani added that in his opinion, and "not the president's," Joe Biden's team is "wrestling very hard about whether they are going to put him out there or not. They are worried he could blow up, and that you can't spin away from."

In any event, there must be at least one debate before early voting starts, Giuliani added. 

"Those schedules were set 30 years ago," said Giuliani. "Now, half the people vote by the middle of October. Two of the debates are after half the people vote."

Giuliani said the campaign originally asked Biden to do all the debates in September, with possibly one in October as a reminder for people voting. 

"Of course, the Biden people, they are having a hard time with one debate," said Giuliani. "I think when the president originally had me go in with six, I think they fainted."

Both Joe and Jill Biden have said he plans to debate, noted show host Brian Kilmeade, but he pointed out that if the current schedule holds, the first debate will be on Sept. 29, after 16 states will have already started voting. 

Giuliani said the Trump campaign also wants the debates to be held in-person, not virtually, but the Biden campaign is coming up with excuses. 

"These people are very worried their candidate is going to blow the election by either not debating or having a mind dysfunction," said Giuliani.
