Green Party presidential candidate Howie Hawkins, one of several ‘third-party’ outsiders in the election, has vowed to take Joe Biden’s place in a four-hour marathon podcast debate with President Donald Trump if the Democrat refuses the challenge.
Social media users are demanding Democratic presidential hopeful Joe Biden turn up for a debate with President Donald Trump chaired by Joe Rogan.
Journalist Tim Pool started the hashtag on Tuesday, a day after Trump enthusiastically agreed to the four-hour marathon debate proposed by comedian and UFC commentator Rogan.

The new hashtag and the Rogan-mediated debate proved popular on social media:
Would be the biggest televised event of a lifetime! Bigger than all the super bowls, bigger than The Rumble in the Jungle! Imagine the ad revenue that could be made. Hell give it to charity. #JoeMustShow
