CAMPAIGN/DEBATES: “President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign on Monday protested the topics of the final presidential debate, claiming in a letter that the issues set for the showdown diverted from a central theme previously agreed on by the two campaigns.

The letter, addressed to the Commission on Presidential Debates and signed by Trump’s campaign manager, Bill Stepien, insisted that the final debate focus on foreign policy, claiming the campaigns had agreed on the topics months ago. But Biden’s campaign retorted that the campaigns and the commission ‘agreed months ago that the debate moderator would choose the topics.’…

Trump has also personally ridiculed debate moderators, claiming they’re biased against him. He went after Welker on Saturday, tweeting that she’s ‘terrible & unfair.'”
