Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton said Monday night that she will attend all three general election presidential debates and challenged her Republican opponent, Donald Trump, to do the same.

“Secretary Clinton looks forward to participating in all three presidential debates scheduled by the independent debate commission,” John Podesta, Clinton’s campaign chairman, said in a statement.

Trump tweeted last month that Clinton and the Democratic party were “rigging” the debates by holding them on the nights that coincide with two major NFL games.

In an interview on ABC’s News’s “This Week” that aired in July, Trump was asked whether he would accept the debate schedule.

“Well, I’ll tell you what I don’t like. It’s against two NFL games,” Trump told host George Stephanopoulos. “I got a letter from the NFL saying, ‘This is ridiculous.’ Why are the debates against — because the NFL doesn’t want to go against the debates. Because the debates are going to be pretty massive, from what I understand, OK?”
