(DAILYMAIL) — Republican hopeful Donald Trump said today that he thought the debates would be 'rigged' in Hillary Clinton's favor and suggested a creative way to prevent such a thing.
'The fact is they are gaming the system,' Trump said during a phone interview this morning on CNBC. 'And I think, maybe, we should have no moderator. Let Hillary and I sit there and just debate. Because I think the system is rigged so it's going to be a very unfair debate.'
Trump said he believed the moderators would be biased and help Clinton because they wouldn't want to suffer the same fate as 'Today' show host Matt Lauer, who took a load of criticism for throwing too many softball questions at Trump during a recent NBC News 'Commander-in-Chief Forum.'
