Trump: There Shouldn’t Be Moderators at Debates, They’ll Be ‘Very Unfair’ to Me

Donald Trump railed against the “unfair” treatment he gets from the press on Monday by saying that no one should moderate the upcoming debates between him and Hillary Clinton.

After speculating about Clinton’s health scare on CNBC’s Squawk Box, Trump said that a debate moderator would be “very unfair” to him. Trump argued that the proof of this was in the fact that Matt Lauer was criticized after he seemed to go easy on him on several major occasions during their interview at the Commander-in-Chief forum.

“I think maybe we should have no moderator. Let Hillary and I sit there and just debate, because I think the system is being rigged so it’s going to be a very unfair debate.”

While Trump continued to brag that he outperformed Clinton at the forum, he said the fallout proved that “they are gaming the system” against him.

“I think it’s very unfair what they are doing,” Trump said. “I think we should have a debate with no moderator, just Hillary and I sitting there talking.”

Trump’s comments are interesting, considering how Chris Wallace says that he has no intention of being the “truth-squad”, and will leave fact-checking to the candidates during the debate he will preside over.
