Giuliani: Trump should not participate in future debates

Posted September 29, 2016

It was unique to New York City. "He was a non-moderator".

Though there's apparently been some chatter about Trump defeating Hillary Clinton in a post-debate CBS News poll, it's worth noting that there was no post-debate CBS News poll.

Trump, however, gave Holt a passing grade.

Even as the Democratic Party candidate Hillary Clinton was thought to be running away with the election results, thanks to Donald Trump's intolerant and conservative stance, some of Clinton's frailties came to the forefront, tilting the scales to a more even plane. But the thing that's wrong is Lester Holt said straight out, "Stop and frisk is unconstitutional".

Trump's opposition to the Iraq war was one reason why Giuliani opposed him at first.

"He gets to decide what he gets to do", she said of Trump. Or at least not "unless I was promised the journalist would act like a journalist, and not an ignorant fact check", the former NYC mayor said after the debate, as shown in a Bloomberg video.

As for the second and third already-scheduled presidential debates, Giuliani said he'd recommend no more unless the moderators "promise they would be a moderator not a fact checker". "It has never been reversed and we do stop-and-frisk in NY and all over America".

Trump's campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, said repeatedly after Monday night's debate that the GOP nominee would participate in the final two debates.

"If journalism has ethics, Lester Holt unethically interfering in the area of law he knows nothing about", Giuliani said.

How the 2nd Circuit would have ruled in the case is unclear, contra Trump.

Stop and frisk "worked very well, Mayor Giuliani is here, worked very well in New York" and "brought the crime rate way down in New York City".

That practice has been criticized as disproportionately targeting minorities.

Well, the short answer is Trump is wrong about the judge's ruling, but it's complicated.

Whether Trump won or lost the debate is not an issue for Giuliani, but Holt's behavior is: "You could think he lost the debate".

Donald may better check himself before he starts attacking moderators.
