Peter Eyre, senior advisor for the Commission on Presidential Debates, has provided more details for how Tuesday night’s debate between President Trump and Joe Biden will play out.
There will be no handshake between Trump and Biden or with the moderator, Chris Wallace, due to coronavirus concerns. Once on stage, the three men will not wear masks.
Biden and Trump will stand on the right side of the stage looking at the audience, while the former vice president will be on the left. Wallace will be seated at a desk facing the two candidates.
There are no opening statements and President Trump will receive the first question.
