Wallace pressed Trump to explain his health care plan, saying that the president is seeking to repeal the Affordable Care Act but doesn’t have a backup.

Trump continually interjected, leading Wallace to grow frustrated.


"Mr. President I'm the moderator of this debate and I'd like you to let me ask my question," Wallace said.

“I guess I'm debating you, not him,” Trump shot back.

Trump has expressed frustration at times with Wallace and Fox News, believing the network should not be critical of his administration.
