Less than a week before the first presidential debate, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she still doesn't think Joe Biden should face off against President Trump.

The California Democrat said on Friday her concerns have nothing to do with the Democratic nominee, noting she has no doubt Biden would be "excellent," but rather Trump's relationship with the truth.

"I just think that the president has no fidelity to fact or truth and actually in his comments the last few days," Pelosi said on Morning on CBS. "No fidelity to the Constitution of the United States. He and his henchmen are a danger — with their comments — are a danger to our democracy."

First debate is Biden's chance to cancel Trump's attacks on his mental fitness. Or fall prey.

  First debate is Biden's chance to cancel Trump's attacks on his mental fitness. Or fall prey. The president has repeatedly suggested his Democratic rival isn't all there and not up to the job.While Biden has suffered from some verbal slip-ups along the campaign trail as well as a slate of primary debates that were somewhat of a mixed-bag for the nominee, what political observers described as the "low expectations" being set by Trump should play to the former vice president's advantage in Cleveland.

"Why bother?" she added.

Pelosi first said Biden should skip all the debates a month ago. Biden refused to consider boycotting the debates and told MSNBC he would be a “fact checker on the floor” of the contests.

Biden declining to show up would give Trump and his allies more ammo to attack the former vice president for "campaigning from his basement" during the coronavirus pandemic. On Thursday, Trump mocked Biden for calling a "lid" on public activities before 9 a.m.

Three presidential debates are scheduled between Sep. 29 and Oct. 22, with the first one on Tuesday being moderated by Fox News Sunday anchor Chris Wallace and taking place in Cleveland, Ohio.

Biden holds a wide lead over Trump in most national polls. There are 39 days until Election Day.
