The commission, which oversees the U.S. presidential debate, says it will change the format to ensure the other two encounters between Donald Trump and Biden are more streamlined.

U.S. The media report said cutting off the microphone could be a new move if candidates try to disrupt each other.

The announcement follows Tuesday’s announcement, which sparked controversy, quarrels and insults.

President Trump’s team has criticized the commission’s plans.

The tone of the first presidential debate and the tactics of the U.S. And was criticized all over the world.

The result, however, has been dominated by Mr. Trump’s comments about a far-right group called the Proud Boys.

On Wednesday he tried to clarify his comments but his critics said he refused to condemn the white supremacists.

What are the plans for the next discussions?

The Commission on Presidential Debates (CPD) said in a statement that the discussion “made it clear that additional format should be added to the constitution of the remaining discussions to allow for a more systematic discussion of issues.”

“The CPD will carefully consider whether to adopt the change and will announce the measures soon,” he said.

“The commission is grateful [moderator] Chris Valce Les who he brought to last night’s discussion for professionalism and expertise and wanted to make sure the additional tools for maintaining order for the rest of the discussions were in place. “

President Trump constantly interrupted Mr. Biden, resulting in a series of chaotic exchanges in which the two men talk to each other.

Mr. Trump questioned Mr. Biden’s intelligence, and Mr. Biden called President Trump a clown, told him to keep quiet, and said: “Dude, are you going to shut up?”

CBS News, citing a knowledgeable source, said the commission would spend the next few hours creating new guidelines and rules for another discussion.

Controlling candidates ’microphones is at the top of the list, CBSA said, to prevent them from mediating or interfering with each other.

Both campaign teams will be informed about the rules but they will not be subject to negotiations, the source added.

The Commission is a non-partisan body that has been conducting presidential election debates since 1988.

What is the reaction?

Trump campaign communicator Tim Murtuf criticized the plans, describing Tuesday night’s chaotic scenes as a “free exchange of ideas.”

“They’re just doing it because their guy made a fuss last night.”

“President Trump was a formidable force and right now B is trying to work on the Biden Refs. He shouldn’t be moving goalposts and changing the rules between the game.”

Kate Beddingfield, deputy manager of Mr. Biden’s campaign, said the commission would participate under whatever rules it develops to control the behavior of former Vice President Donald Trump.

“The president has to ask voters to choose answers to questions for which he has not provided any answers in this campaign – or to repeat last night’s altered meltdown.”

While Mr Biden was given a slight edge in a snap poll on the debate, other opinion polls suggest that 0% of Americans will already make up their minds on how to vote and make a difference in the debate.

The next discussion is scheduled for October 15 in Miami, Florida.

What did Mr. Trump say about the Proud Boys?

During the debate, moderator Chris Wallace asked if the president would condemn the white supremacists and ask them to stand up during the protests.

When Mr. Trump asked who he was calling for condemnation, Mr. Biden twice called him a “proud boy,” referring to many right-wing, anti-immigrant, all-male groups with a history of violence against left-wing opponents.

The President said: “Proud boys – stand back and stand. But what can I tell you … Someone has to do something about Antifa [anti-fascist activists] And left because this is no right side problem. “

Members of the Pride Boys described his “stand-by” as “critical”, “historical” and supportive.

Mr Biden said Mr Trump “refused to reject white supremacists”.

On Wednesday, Mr. Trump appeared to be trying to return to his comments.

At a news conference on the White House linen, a reporter asked him about the Pride Boys and he said: “I don’t know who they are. All I can say is that they have to stand up and let the law enforcement do their job.”

He did not specify his use of “stand by” in the discussion. When asked if he welcomed white supremacist support, he simply said he wanted “law and order to be a very important part of our campaign.”

Biden returned to the issue in a tweet on Wednesday: “There is no other way to put it: the president of the United States last night refused to reject white supremacists during the debate.”

In his tweet, he quoted a comment addressed to the President from the Gaurav Boys forum online forum. Which reads: “This makes me very happy. We are ready. Standing by the sir.”

When faced with tough or difficult issues, Donald Trump has a tendency to always give a smorgasbord of contradictory answers, allowing his supporters – and those who oppose him – to choose and choose what they believe.

This behavior is nowhere to be seen more than when he addresses white supremacist and extremist right-wing groups. At some point he has abandoned them. On others, it separates or changes the subject when direct condemnation is sufficient.

Instead, the president ended up sucking up hate groups, such as he did in the wake of the 2017 Charlottesville violence or with his “back and forth” message on Tuesday.

The president can say all the right things politically, then turn around and say all the wrong things, leaving his aides to clean up the mess.

Is it because the president is careless with his words, misunderstood by critics and the opposition press, or because he is sensitive to the concerns of more obscure elements of his support base?

Despite all the talk and tweets he made, the president – intentionally or not – remains a cyber.
