From The Hill:
Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Monday called for a debate with Democrat Hillary Clinton without a moderator.
He said a debate with a moderator could be “rigged” and would be unfair.
“I think maybe we should have no moderator. Let Hillary and I sit there and just debate, because I think the system is being rigged so it’s going to be a very unfair debate,” Trump said on CNBC’s “Squawk Box.”
“I think we should have a debate with no moderator, just Hillary and I sitting there talking,” he said.
Trump cited last week’s “Commander-in-Chief Forum” on NBC moderated by Matt Lauer, whose performance was panned, including by The New York Times and Clinton’s campaign.
“The system is being gamed,” Trump declared Monday. “They all said I won and that Matt Lauer was easy on me. Well, he wasn’t. I thought he was very professional, I have to be honest. I think he’s been treated very unfairly. ”
“What they’re doing is they’re gaming the system so that when I go into the debate, I’m going to be treated very, very unfairly by the moderators,” Trump said.
