Donald Trump will be employing a new strategy in preparation for the second presidential debate, The New York Times reports: practice.

Trump grew bored with the traditional debate prep for Monday's first face-off with Democrat Hillary Clinton, and many in his camp believe it showed, with him becoming easily irritated by Clinton's baiting and failing to attack her on points because moderator Lester Holt had not brought them up.

Though most online polls showed Trump won the debate, many supporters and members of his team felt his lack of preparation showed as the hour-and-45-minute debate wore on.

Trump never prepared for debates in the primary season, and managed to vanquish 16 opponents, but people close to the campaign told the Times Trump began preparing for his matchup with Clinton more traditionally at first.

He quickly became bored with the method, however, and adviser and former Fox News chairman Roger Ailes instead talked with Trump about his own recent problems. Trump's team also contained a wide variety of people, including military leaders with no political experience, and he was receiving conflicting advice, according to the Times.

With a second debate set for October 9, Trump's team is working to bring the candidate back to a more traditional preparation – especially since it will be a town hall-style format where voters will be asking some of the questions.

Some of Trump's advisers hope to practice pushing Trump's buttons so they can test his response. Others want to focus on the town-hall format so he can practice his body language while talking to undecided voters.

Others want to convince him to stick to his strategy rather than hitting Clinton with zingers that she effectively volleyed on Monday.
