House Speaker Nancy Pelosi again called for Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden to skip debating President Trump, saying the debates are not worth it.

"I just think that the president has no fidelity to fact or truth and actually, in his comments the last few days, no fidelity to the Constitution of the United States," Pelosi said on CBS News on Friday. "He and his henchmen are a danger … to our democracy...Why bother?"

This is not the first time Democrats have pushed for the presidential candidates to be canceled.

A former spokesperson for the Clinton administration and Biden himself have pushed back on debates. A New York Times opinion piece and "Never Trumper" Bill Kristol have also called for the debates to be scrapped.

🔦 Pelosi first began pushing for canceling the presidential debates in August.
