The microphones of U.S. President Donald Trump and his rival Joe Biden will be muted during the final presidential debates on October 22 as The New York Times reported.

Such a decision was made to avoid the unruly spectacle of the partakers of the debates observed during the first round of dispute. However, all other rules of the debates will remain the same, except the turn off the candidates mike during the speech of his rival.

The nonpartisan debate commission will be responsible for turning the microphones of the rivals on and off; however, the interruption might be still heard when the voice of the rival picked up by another candidate’s mike.

“We are comfortable that these actions strike the right balance and that they are in the interest of the American people, for whom these debates are held,” the commission said.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump and his team opposed the decision to control the microphone at the debate and sent a letter to the commission it “completely unacceptable” for “an unnamed person” to turn off a microphone. Trump underlined that he found such a decision unfair.

Donald Trump and Joe Biden held the first round of the public debates on September 29. The debates took place in Cleveland, Ohio. The final round of the debates will take place on October 22 in Nashville, Tennessee.
