Donald Trump says he’s not especially concerned about getting boxed into a corner in the Las Vegas debate.

“I look forward to the debate. I think we’re going to do very well. I understand the subject matter very, very well. And I’m representing a lot of people,” Trump said in an interview this week with Michael Savage.

“What are you going to do this Wednesday if Meat Loaf Jr. tries to set you up? Because Murdoch himself has advised all of them to back Hillary Clinton. What are you going to do if Meat Loaf Jr. goes after you?,” Savage said, referring to moderator Chris Wallace.

Trump said:

Well, we’re going to find out what’s going to happen. The first debate, I think we did very well, we had a very faulty microphone as you know, and they even officially announced it. It was absolutely outrageous. There’s a whole thing going on there, too. But I think we’re going to do very well in the debate. I understand the subject matter very well. I don’t think she does. I think she frankly is a highly overrated intellect. And she does not understand the subject…

…Syria, Libya, I mean, just look at what she’s done.

“He was terrific,” Trump said of Wallace’s father, the late 60 Minutes journalist Mike Wallace.

“Well, I understand. I just hope he’s going to be fair. I didn’t think they were fair with me the last debate, and I hit back at them pretty hard. I hope they’re going to be fair,” Trump said.
