After what appeared to be an unorganized event between President Donald Trump and Joe Biden, the second presidential debate will include the muting of microphones. The Commission on Presidential debates made the call to make this new rule based on the chaotic first debate which led to the debate leaving the topic of each candidates campaign, to focusing on Joe Biden’s personal life and yelling causing multiple interruptions. The debate is divided into six 15 minute segments. Muting the microphones will allow each candidate to speak for two minutes uninterrupted. This debate is to take place Thursday, October 22, 2020 at 9pm.
