(UnitedVoice.com) – Ahead of the first presidential debate on Tuesday, September 29, Donald Trump has requested an important ground rule: one that might surprise many.
The president has requested that both he and Joe Biden undergo an independent ear check. This would ensure neither candidate is receiving secret assistance from the sidelines via an electronic transmitter. Biden’s camp has not yet communicated acceptance of this.
Ordinarily, two presidential candidates would have had a public debate further in advance of the election. However, the movement restrictions that have come with the COVID-19 pandemic have kept Trump and Biden apart until now. This situation has played right into the hands of the Democrats, allowing them to keep Biden’s cognitive inadequacies out of the spotlight. Reports that Biden’s team requested two breaks during the 90-minute show have fueled further speculation that the 77-year-old is not fit for a presidential debate.
Biden is asking for a break every 30 minutes during tonight’s debate!
There are no breaks when you’re leader of the free world, Joe! https://t.co/2lMiKAHD7Q

Regardless of what’s happened up to now, it’s clear the Trump campaign is intent on giving Joe Biden nowhere to hide. If measures like ear checks are necessary to ensure a fair and transparent debate, the event’s organizers should not hesitate to facilitate them.
