What to Expect from the Presidential Debate

It’s safe to say that the presidential debate will have more than enough viral moments to live in internet infamy. While there’s no official word on debate topics, the economy, border control, student loans and abortion laws are some of the political issues that Trump and Biden might address.

The debate will include two commercial breaks over the 90 minutes. Biden will be positioned at a podium on the right side of the room and Trump on the left. Each candidate’s microphone will be muted until it’s their time to speak. Trump will deliver closing statement during the debate.

Trump, 78, and Biden, 81, agreed to the presidential debate in May, around a month before the twice-impeached former president was convicted on 34 felony counts of falsifying business records.

The next presidential debate between Biden and Trump is scheduled for Sept. 10 on ABC News.
