Presumptive Democratic nominee Joe Biden is “close” to making a decision on a running mate, the former vice president’s wife told “The Daily Briefing” Tuesday.

Jill Biden also told host Dana Perino that her husband will share the debate stage with President Trump this fall, shrugging off suggestions by former Clinton White House press secretary Joe Lockhart and others that Joe Biden skip the events.

“Oh yes he will [debate],” Jill Biden responded. “I think it’s three debates that they decided on so yeah, he’ll be there.”

“Do you think it’s unhelpful for other Democrats to suggest that Joe Biden shouldn’t debate the president?” Perino asked.

“No, I didn’t even realize he [Lockhart] had written the article,” Mrs. Biden said. “Joe will make up his own mind.”

Perino then asked Biden to respond to Trump’s claim during an interview with Fox News’ Chris Wallace last month that her husband “can’t put two sentences together,” a reference to the former vice president’s gaffes on the campaign trail. Trump went on to claim that Biden is “not competent to be president. To be president you have to be sharp and tough and so many other things. He doesn’t even come out of his basement.”

“Joe is anything but that characterization,” Jill Biden told Perino. “We’ve been campaigning, we’ve been listening to the experts, the scientists and the doctors and they have told us, stay home and be safe.”

“Donald Trump is really about Joe’s age,” she added. “I think there’s two or three years difference [Trump is 74 years old, while Joe Biden is 77], so it’s surprising that he would say Joe wouldn’t be up to it and made those comments.”
