Next debates will have ‘additional structure,’ commission says after first Trump-Biden face-off

/ / News

The remaining presidential debates will have “additional structure,” the Commission on Presidential Debates said Wednesday, following Tuesday’s first debate between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden. The debate, held in Cleveland, was widely criticized as chaotic, with the two candidates frequently interrupting each other. “Last night’s debate made clear that additional structure should be added to the format of the remaining debates to ensure a more orderly discussion of the issues,” said a statement from the commission. The commission will consider changes and announce them “shortly,” the statement said. Two more presidential debates are scheduled before the election, and one vice-presidential debate is planned.
