Story highlights

  • Rudy Giuliani said that Donald Trump is prepared to do all three presidential debates
  • Giuliani said that he and Paul Manafort have been tasked to negotiate the terms of the debates

Washington (CNN)Rudy Giuliani said Thursday that Donald Trump is prepared to do all three sanctioned presidential debates.

"Donald Trump is going to participate in all three debates," Giuliani told CNN's Chris Cuomo on "New Day." "He told me two weeks ago, he wants me and Paul Manafort to negotiate the terms of the debates."
    He added, "I believe that the debates are critical for him."
    The Clinton campaign hinted that Trump may not show up to the debates, in a blast sent Monday from campaign chairman John Podesta.
    Trump derided the debate schedule in late July -- saying some are scheduled during NFL games -- raising questions of whether he might skip the faceoffs.
