Trump vs Biden Debate

The mute button, or at least the threat of it, seemed to work. In the second presidential debate, Donald Trump and Joe Biden candidates were more restrained.

The candidates allowed each other to speak. They used respectful tones. Even when they went on the attack, they did so in a calm, deliberate manner.
