Donald Trump is "absolutely" willing to take on Hillary Clinton in three televised debates this fall, but will likely ask officials planning the debates to reconsider the current schedule.

Less than a week after the Republican presidential nominee called the debate schedule "rigged" because two of three debates coincide with NFL games, he declined on Tuesday to fully commit to the current program in an interview with Time.

"I will absolutely do three debates. I want to debate very badly, but I have to see the conditions," Trump said.

"I renegotiated the debates in the primaries, remember? They were making a fortune on them and they had us in for three and a half hours and I said that's ridiculous," he continued. "I'm sure they'll be open to any suggestions I have, because I think they'll be very fair suggestions. But I haven't [seen the conditions] yet. They're actually presented to me tonight."

While dates and locations have already been announced, the Commission on Presidential Debates has not yet revealed to the Trump or Clinton campaigns which public figures or journalists had been chosen to moderate the debates – a detail Trump is eager to learn, and possibly re-negotiate.

"I would say that certain moderators would be unacceptable, absolutely," Trump told Time. "I did very well in the debates on the primaries. According to the polls, I won all of them. So I look forward to the debates … but I want to have fair moderators. I will demand fair moderators."

A CPD official told Time that minor adjustments may be made to the debates, but the commission does not anticipate changing the overall format in any way – even if Trump attempts to push back against it.

At the moment, the commission is also preparing for a possible third-party candidate to join Trump and Clinton on the debate stage if they reach the qualifying polling threshold of 15 percent next month.

The latest RealClearPolitics national polling average currently has Libertarian presidential nominee Gary Johnson polling at 8.8 percent support in a three-way race against the two major party nominees. Ross Perot was the last third-party candidate to make it onto the debate stage in 1992 with President George H.W. Bush, Bill Clinton.

Trump's comments to Time about potentially re-negotiating the debates came hours after Clinton accepted the commission's invitation to the debates and mocked Trump's previous criticism of the schedule.

"It is concerning that the Trump campaign is already engaged in shenanigans around these debates," campaign chairman John Podesta said in a statement. "It is not clear if he is trying to avoid debates, or merely toying with the press to create more drama. Either way, our campaign is not interested in playing along with a debate about debates or bargaining around them."
