Donald Trump on Tuesday tentatively agreed to three scheduled TV debates with Democratic presidential rival Hillary Clinton, despite his displeasure over two being held opposite primetime NFL games.
The campaign for Trump, the Republican nominee, told Fox News that it still wants to see the conditions of the debates before making a final commitment.
On Monday, the Clinton campaign also tentatively agreed to the debates -- Sept. 26 at Hofstra University; Oct. 9 at Washington University in St. Louis; and Oct. 19 at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
Hillary for America Chairman John Podesta indicating Clinton plans to accept all three debate dates, set by the bipartisan Commission on Presidential Debates.
“It is concerning that the Trump campaign is already engaged in shenanigans around these debates,” Podesta said. “We will accept the commission's invitation and expect Donald Trump to do the same."
The first debate will be aired at the same time ESPN will broadcast a Monday night game between the Atlanta Falcons and New Orleans Saints. The second debate will air opposite a Sunday night game between the New York Giants vs. Green Bay Packers.
