    Trump should request that a visible time clock be visible, similar to a chess match. After the question is asked the moderator hits the clock.

    Trump needs to have his staff on stand by with the biggest, loudest bullhorn/megaphone on the market.

    Nope. The moderator will interrupt Trump, and tell Biden he died not have to answer Trump’s question.

    It's funny because if you watch the debate carefully, Biden was actually the first one to interrupt Trump, albeit not during those sacred 2 minutes when the candidates are supposed to sum up nuanced political positions on complicated issues in words that 90% of Americans will understand, but they didn't have to speak over each other. Biden set the precedent and Trump followed suit.

    Yep, this. Can Trump or Biden mute the moderator? Seems only fair, especially given how moderator bias can ruin a debate.

    Trump should bring his own self powered, cordless mike with him to debate. He could carry it discretely and pull it out when needed to take over the debate.

    If anyone is truly undecided at this point, a clear bias won't resonate well with them. Time will tell.

    Y'all ain't ever happy. The first debate was terrible and everyone was mad about the interrupting. So they take a step to stop this and you're mad again. Just let them say their piece. If it's rigged, it will show. But let's actually hear what they say, instead of having them fight like little kids.

    I’m going to say this might actually help Trump. Last time he had great points, but kept stepping on his own message.

    Yes and how they say it.

    I predict a disastrous Biden performance left alone for 2 minutes without "moderator" help.

    The best Biden can do is recite canned memorized replies and there is always the chance for gaffes and senior moments.

    Biden is rope-a-doping.
    He will more than likely not make gaffes at the debate.

    Don’t underestimate communists.
