Trump says he will test for COVID-19 before next presidential debate

Fox News host Chris Wallace moderated the debate and lamented later that he lost control of the two candidates. "For the balance of each segment, which by design is meant to be dedicated to open discussion, both candidates' microphones will be open", the commission said.

The rest of the segment will be open discussion, during which both mics will be on, the commission said.

The first debate on September 29 - which was filled with interruptions and broken rules - focused on the pandemic, the economy, the Supreme Court, "race and violence in our cities", election integrity and Trump's and Biden's records, according to the commission.

The Commission on Presidential Debates has announced plans to mute microphones during the next presidential debate to allow each presidential candidate to have two-minute blocks of uninterrupted time.

The researchers found 455 jokes about Trump and 14 about Democrat Joe Biden, according to the Center for Media and Public Affairs at George Mason University. Stepien said the debates commission was "biased" and was trying to "provide advantage to their favored candidate". But it also acknowledged that the two campaigns, which were notified only shortly before the announcement, might not "be totally satisfied".

"I'm not running scared", Trump told reporters before taking off for Tucson, Arizona, for his fifth rally in three days.

The Commission on Presidential Debates has revealed the candidates' microphones will be silenced to prevent them from interrupting the other while they have two minutes to answer a question.

Biden, meanwhile, was campaigning in MI where he ripped into Trump's handling of the coronavirus - the strongest issue of his campaign.

Democratic presidential nominee Joseph R. Biden has a 9-point lead over President Trump among likely voters, according to a national New York Times/Siena College poll released on Tuesday. "This is what the campaigns had agreed to and it has been the tradition in past campaigns", Trump campaign manager Bill Stepien wrote in a letter to the Commission on Presidential Debates.

The debate commission has had a tumultuous year.

Trump backed out of a second scheduled debate set for last Thursday over a disagreement about the virtual format following his COVID-19 infection.

"He made me a better president, and he's got the character and the experience to make us a better country", Obama said of his former vice president during his DNC address. Schroeder asked. "Both participants must agree to a common vision of what the exercise is supposed to be".
