Following the showdown between President Trump and Joe Biden on Tuesday Commission on presidential debates set the event made it clear that “ additional structures” should be added to the format of the remaining debates to “ensure” a “ more orderly discussion” of issues.
The commission’s comments are due to repeated interruptions and insults flying between the two candidates.
The CPD made a statement Wednesday saying, “The Commission on Presidential Debates sponsors televised debates for the benefit of the American electorate. 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.”
The commission also added that it will be “carefully considering the changes that it will adopt and will announce those measures shortly.”
The commission gave credit to the Fox News anchor who patiently moderated the debate, “The commission is grateful to Chris Wallace for the professionalism and skill he brought to last night’s debate and intends to ensure that additional tools to maintain order are in place for the remaining debates.”
There were many interruptions from both candidates throughout the debate. A Fox News analysis determined that Joe Biden interrupted President Trump 49 times and Chris Wallace 18 times. Meanwhile, Trump interrupted Biden 71 times and Wallace 74 times.
Two more debates are scheduled for October 15th in Miami, Florida, and October 22nd in Nashville, Tennessee. As well as a vice presidential debate set for October 7th.
The CPD is sponsoring two more debates for Trump and Biden, one on Oct. 15 in Miami, Fla., and one on Oct. 22 in Nashville, Tenn. A vice-presidential debate is set for Oct. 7.
Trump campaign Communications Director Tim Murtagh argues that the commission is only doing this “ because their guy got pummeled last night.”
“They shouldn’t be moving the goalposts and changing the rules in the middle of the game,” he said.
