The first presidential debate of the 2024 election cycle between U.S. President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump is scheduled for this Thursday at the CNN Presidential Debate. The first-ever discussion between a sitting president and a past president is set to take place in this debate, which is more than four months ahead of the election in November. It promises to be historic.

Event Details and Schedule

On Thursday, June 27, at 9:00 p.m. ET, the CNN Presidential Debate will air. CNN will broadcast the debate live, and USA Today’s YouTube channel will stream it for viewers. With two commercial breaks, the 90-minute programme is planned to be moderated by Jake Tapper and Dana Bash.

Notable Changes in Format

This discussion, in contrast to those hosted by the Commission on Presidential Debates since 1988, will be held in front of a live audience on an Atlanta soundstage. When it’s not their assigned speaking time, each candidate’s microphone will be silenced to maintain an organised and continuous debate format.

Rules and Restrictions

There are tight rules for candidates who take part in the CNN Presidential Debate. They are not permitted to bring prepared notes, nor are they permitted to confer with their employees during breaks. During the discussion, each contender will only be allowed to bring a pen, pad, and water bottle.

Participant Criteria

CNN established strict guidelines for debate participation. In four nationwide surveys of registered or probable voters, candidates have to be included on enough state ballots to potentially garner 270 electoral votes and sustain a polling support of at least 15%.

The Results

Viewers may anticipate a unique debate format and thought-provoking exchanges between President Joe Biden and former President Donald Trump as the country prepares for this historic event in the 2024 election cycle. Watch this historic showdown live on USA Today’s YouTube page or stay glued to CNN.
