Staunch "Never Trumper" Bill Kristol tweeted Tuesday that the 2020 presidential debates should be canceled in lieu of three vice presidential debates.

Kristol's comments come after presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden announced Sen. Kamala Harris as his 2020 running mate.

The former editor and founder of the now-obsolete Weekly Standard is no stranger to suggesting unconventional democratic ideas. In 2017, he said he would fully support a coup against President Trump.

With his latest tweet, Kristol joins a number of Trump's opponents who have advised Biden not to debate the president.

New York Times columnist Tom Friedman, CNN contributor and former Clinton White House press secretary Joe Lockhart, and former Hillary Clinton adviser Zac Petkanas have all recommended that Biden refrain from debating Trump.
