Trump Hits NBC News, Kristen Welker

(Newsmax TV's "Greg Kelly Reports")

By    |   Wednesday, 14 October 2020 07:00 PM

President Donald Trump will be competing for Americans' ears and facing another "never Trump" moderator in NBC News' Kristen Welker next Thursday night in Nashville, Tennessee, Trump told Newsmax TV.

"Yeah I am, and I know who I'm going against," Trump told Wednesday's "Greg Kelly Reports" in an exclusive interview. "It's one of those things."

Trump has derided the Commission on Presidential Debates for being "never Trump," appointing biased moderators, and "rigging" the debates for Democrat Joe Biden.

"The problem is the anchors are all crooked," Trump told host Greg Kelly. "Now we have Kristen Welker; she's a disaster. She's a never Trumper from NBC.

"You know, all of NBC is never Trump. That's Con-cast. They're all never Trump, they're bad news. That's MS-DNC. You know, they're just bad news."

Trump wanted to debate Biden in-person in Miami during the COPD second town hall-style debate Thursday after recovering from COVID-19.

But that debate was canceled after the Biden campaign preempted the agreed-upon debate schedule by quickly moving on to his own town hall-style debate on ABC News on Thursday – something that raised controversy of network bias with NBC before.

That cancellation came after revelations NBC News' town hall last week with Biden had featured Americans asking the questions as "undecided" voters. Reporting later revealed the network had already featured those voters as supporting Biden.

"And they rigged it," Trump said. "That was for a child. That newscast, that town hall, that was for a child. That was for Barron Trump, the questions they asked sleepy Joe Biden."

Trump, trailing in the polls, has sought a fourth debate against Biden, but that was rejected by his opponent. Debate historians have noted the incumbent president tends to do even better in subsequent debates leading up to the election, but now there will be just two. The second one will come Oct. 22 in Nashville, Tennessee.

"My debate, I did well," Trump said of the first debate in Cleveland, Ohio, which brought talk of changing the debate ruins mid-campaign. "Everyone who thought I won the debate easily, and then two days later they're saying I interrupted.

"But the truth is I had to interrupt because he was spewing all lies. Everything he said was a lie. And what I do is I'd say, 'that's not true, that's not true.' He was saying a lot of things, and they were lies. But the fact is that Chris Wallace, who's totally third rate, he kept saving the guy."
