Trump Battles Debate Moderator Chris Wallace: ‘I Guess I’m Debating You’


President Donald Trump and Fox News debate moderator Chris Wallace sparred within the first ten minutes of the first presidential debate, prompting Trump to retort: “I guess I’m debating you, not him, but that’s OK, I’m not surprised.”

Trump’s remark came after Wallace attacked Trump, picking up on his contender Joe Biden (D)’s accusation that the president was trying to eliminate Obamacare without having a replacement.

Even before their exchange, Wallace repeatedly interrupted Trump to let Biden speak, with pleas of “Mr. President let him finish,” and “Please let him speak.”

The interaction between Trump and Wallace was expected to be contentious, given Wallace’s history of criticizing the president.

Breitbart News has reported on at least 15 times Wallace has criticized the president.
