Donald Trump has criticised Lester Holt, the moderator of the first US presidential debate which held at Hoftsra University in New York on Monday, September 26, 2016.
Trump refers to Holt as biased, in an interview on Fox News and then took a jab at the most unlikely target – Google.
The US presidential candidate accused Google of conspiracy to rig search result in Hillary Clinton’s favour.
He also attacked his rival by suggesting Clinton plans to “strip (the US) of its status as a sovereign nation,” after his surrogates attacked her for her husband’s infidelities.
Speaking about the debate, Trump said, in the interview, that Holt was too harsh on him than he was on Clinton.
He admitted he gave a good review immediately after the debate, however, he had changed his mind about the moderator’s performance “after seeing the way he badgered and even the questions I got”.
Specifically, Trump expressed his dissatisfaction over the fact that Holt asked him “the birther question” in the debate.
Donald Trump had claimed earlier on that Barack Obama was not born in the United States, a statement that has not only been referred to as racist, but also as a dog whistle.
Also, the report also alleges that Trump accused Google of conspiring with Clinton’s campaign team to suppress bad news about his rival.
“Google search engine was suppressing the bad news about Hillary Clinton,” the Republican nominee said to his supporters in Wisconsin on Wednesday, September 28, 2016.
Trump, at the rally on Wednesday, accused Clinton of being a “globalist”, saying that she was a “vessel for special interest…what wants tp strip (the United States) of its status as a sovereign nation.”
