The disaster that was the first presidential debate for the 2020 election will reportedly be changed the second time around.
“We realize, after discussions with both campaigns, that neither campaign may be totally satisfied with the measures announced today," The Commission on Presidential Debates said in a statement. "One may think they go too far, and one may think they do not go far enough. We are comfortable that these actions strike the right balance and that they are in the interest of the American people, for whom these debates are held."
There has been no change in debate rules, but regulations will be enforced by muting microphones when it isn't someone's turn. This will hopefully eliminate interruptions, as President Trump's camp is less than thrilled about the announcement.
“President Trump is committed to debating Joe Biden regardless of last minute rule changes from the biased commission in their latest attempt to provide advantage to their favored candidate,” said Bill Stepien, Tump's campaign manager. “This was supposed to be the foreign policy debate, so the President still looks forward to forcing Biden to answer the number one relevant question of whether he’s been compromised by the Communist Party of China.”
The next presidential debate is reportedly scheduled for Thursday.
