Kristen Welker of NBC News was selected to moderate the October 22 presidential debate in Nashville, Tennessee. The president alleged that Welker had deleted her Twitter account. She paused after debate moderator Steve Scully was put on leave for lying about a tweet
Trump had contacted Sean Hannity’s Fox News Channel program and called Scully a “ Never Trumper. ”
On Saturday, Welker’s Twitter account was turned back on.
An NBC spokesperson told DailyMail.com that it “ consulted them internally, made sure there was two-factor authentication and turned it back on. ”
The president had previously been complimentary of Welker, congratulate her at a press conference in Davos, Switzerland in January for being promoted to weekend ‘Today’ anchor.
On Saturday, Trump didn’t name Scully, but instead pointed a finger at NBC’s Savannah Guthrie, who moderated Thursday night’s city hall with the president in Miami, which took the place of the second debate.
“We did really well the other day with a person I knew was even more unfair, Savannah,” Trump told the crowd.
Trump then suggested that Guthrie had disappeared after City Hall, despite anchoring the ‘Today’ show the next day.
“In fact, no one has seen Savannah for two days, what happened to Savannah?” Trump said.
But she jumped out of her seat a bit, she was just flying. Like, “I told you, I told you,” he said, trying to impersonate the presenter of ‘Today’.
The president also complained about Fox News Sunday presenter Chris Wallace and the way he handled Trump’s first on-stage debating appearance with Democratic nominee Joe Biden.
Trump and Biden would face each other for the last time on Thursday before the November 3 presidential election in Nashville, Tennessee.
The second debate was scratched after Trump refused to participate virtually after contracting COVID-19.
During Thursday’s town hall with Guthrie, the president couldn’t recall when he last tested negative for the coronavirus before testing positive twice on Oct. 1 – meaning he could have been infected during the initial debate.
The president returned to the campaign trail on Monday.
