In the past, presidential debate moderators were only required to present questions, maintain flow, and provide the American people a clear picture of each candidate. But in 2016, things have changed. Moderators are now not only allowed to engage in factual and theoretical debates with the candidates, but they can even deem a candidate's theories as wrong or invalid.
Donald Trump ran into a three-way buzz saw Sunday night when he not only took on Hillary Clinton, but two other moderators as well.
In a new video released by the Trump campaign, you can clearly see the disadvantage Trump was up against.
One of the more notable moments was when Martha Raddatz basically said that Trump's military tactics were flawed.
Trump: “Why do they have to say we're going to be attacking Mosul within the next four to six weeks, which is what they're saying? How stupid is our country?
Raddatz: There are sometimes reasons the military does that. Psychological warfare.
Trump: I can't think of any. I can't think of any. And I'm pretty good at it.
Raddatz: It might be to help get civilians out.
