Trump Adviser Giuliani: 'I Wouldn't Participate in Another Debate'

AP poll Voters more confident in Trump's health for office

Giuliani, a Trump adviser, added, "I did not say what I'm advising, I'm saying what I would do".

NBC News' Hallie Jackson reported that Trump had told her he was committed to taking part in the second of three planned debates - which is scheduled for October 9.

In Rudy Giuliani's opinion, Donald Trump's first presidential debate should be his last. This program is similar to the one Giuliani approved as mayor of NY in which police search people they stop for questioning.

Holt is not a lawyer, but Giuliani is, and he said, "I'm not going to allow him to play lawyer and contradict our candidate". Holt, these critics said, wanted to avoid the same treatment and ended up overcompensating.

When asked whether he planned to share his perspective with Trump, the former New York City mayor said he would keep private conversations private.

Trump's opposition to the Iraq war was one reason why Giuliani opposed him at first. Giuliani's complaints come as the role of the moderator has been hotly debated, with Clinton's campaign pushing for a moderator who calls the candidates on falsehoods.

"If journalism has ethics, Lester Holt was unethically interfering in the area of law he knows nothing about", Giuliani said.

"It is not unconstitutional and Trump's description of that case was correct".

That practice has been criticized as disproportionately targeting minorities. If Trump were to opt out of the debate, could they hold a debate at all?

The second presidential debate will be taking place on October 9 at Washington University in St. Louis with Martha Raddatz (ABC) and Anderson Cooper (CNN) moderating. In fact, Holt made little effort to disguise his partisanship.
