The debate commission wants to change the rules after the first round, during which candidates constantly interrupted each other.
US President Donald Trump has made it clear that he is against changing the rules of the second and third debates with Democrat Joe Biden, saying that he “easily” won the first round.
Tuesday’s hour-and-a-half debate was tense and chaotic, with both candidates frequently interrupting each other, especially Trump.
Many journalists and political analysts called this meeting the worst presidential debate in history.
The independent commission on presidential debates said it would soon announce stricter rules for the Trump – Biden debates scheduled for October 15 and 22 to give the events “additional structure … to ensure a more orderly discussion.”
However, Trump tweeted: “Why would I allow the debate commission to change the rules for the second and third debates if I won the first one easily?”
Biden did not object to the format, but called Trump’s behavior a “national embarrassment.”
