While the first 90-minute debate is likely to start at 9 pm ET in Atlanta, it will be held without an audience “to ensure candidates may maximize the time allotted in the debate.” The debate between the 81-year-old incumbent and the 78-year-old presumptive Republican nominee will be moderated by anchors Jake Tapper and Dana Bash.

Biden campaign wins a coin flip

Biden or Trump's microphone will be muted while one of them will be speaking. According to sources, there won't be any opening remarks and the contenders will have two minutes to respond to queries.

According to CNN, Biden's team won a coin flip and was able to choose where the candidates would stand on stage or who would deliver the closing statement. The president's entourage positioned him at the right lectern on the platform. This choice sets Trump up to conclude the evening with closing remarks.

Trump spokesperson Steven Cheung mocked the Commander-in Chief in a statement to Newsweek. He said that "media wants to lower Joe Biden's debate performance bar so low he gets a participation trophy simply for standing upright for 90 minutes."

The debate plans came after the Biden campaign stated in a letter last month that he was willing to confront his Republican opponent twice before the November election. After Trump accepted the challenge, two debates were scheduled for June and September.
