    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.

    PollWatch used it when it tweeted the results of its informal Twitter survey showing overwhelming enthusiasm for the face-off.
