Trump camp mulling accepting debate schedule
WASHINGTON - Campaign manager Kellyanne Conway says Donald Trump's team is still discussing whether to agree to the debate schedule announced by the independent Commission on Presidential Debates.
Trump has voiced criticisms of the scheduled debates on Sept. 26, Oct. 4 and Oct. 9, including complaining that two debates coincide with football games.
Conway says on ABC's "This Week" that Trump is "very engaged" with debate prep.
She says the GOP nominee is a "natural communicator, natural connector with people, and the debates are a fabulous opportunity to force a conversation onto substance."
As for whether Trump is on board with the schedule Conway says: "We are discussing that."
Appearing later on ABC, Hillary Clinton's campaign manager, Robby Mook, says it's time to agree to the schedule and "get on with it."
