Donald Trump on Thursday said that the first presidential debate of 2016 against Hillary Clinton was “a rigged deal.”
During a campaign event in New Hampshire, Trump, the Republican nominee, said he had to fight with moderator Lester Holt on “everything I said.”
“When I first did it, I thought he was fine, I wasn’t thinking about it, but when I reviewed it and when I saw all of the commentary — because a lot of people thought he was terrible — and I looked at all of the commentary, I realized he was much, much tougher on me than he was on Hillary, it was like day and night,” Trump said on Fox News’s “The O’Reilly Factor.”
