During a performance by one participant, the other’s microphone will be turned off.
A microphone-off button will appear at the debate between President Donald Trump and his Democratic rival, former Vice President Joe Biden, which will allow them to speak without fear of interruptions from their opponent.
This was reported by the debate organizers, believing that the innovation will avoid the failures that marred the first debate of the candidates.
The Commission on presidential debates said that during two-minute speeches by candidates at the beginning of each 15-minute segment, the opponent’s microphone will be turned off.
After that, both microphones will be turned on to allow you to exchange remarks during the discussion.
The Trump headquarters has spoken out against these changes but said that the President would take part in the debate.
“President Trump is determined to take part in the debate with Joe Biden, despite the last-minute changes made in another attempt to provide an advantage to the candidate they prefer,” said the chief of staff Bill Stepien.
Biden’s staff did not respond to a request for comment on the latest developments.
