The debate will be held as part of Business Insider Today, a daily online news show from the publication on Facebook’s video on demand service.
“President Trump was invited to participate but has not responded,” Business Insider said in a press release Tuesday afternoon announcing the event.
Trump on Monday indicated he would not debate the Republicans who have announced bids to challenge him for the 2020 GOP nomination, pointing to their low polling figures and dismissing their bids as “a publicity stunt.”
Business Insider said it would hold its debate at its New York City headquarters. The event from Business Insider, a company that launched in 2007, will be moderated by Insider CEO Henry Blodget, politics editor Anthony Fisher and columnist Linette Lopez.
“The Fall presidential campaign season is heating up. But we should be paying attention to more than just the Democrats who are running for president,” the outlet said in its press release.
“The political landscape has changed immeasurably since Donald Trump ran for and was elected President. It’s vitally important to have an honest conversation about what it means to be a Republican in the era of Trump; our debate will be a valuable part of that discussion.”
