The Presidential Election Debate on September 26 will be moderated by Lester Holt,
that on October 9 will be moderated by Martha Raddatz and Anderson Cooper,and that on October 19 will be moderated by Chris Wallace.
Here are three questions that every moderator of a Presidential Debate should ask Trump.
Why hasn’t Trump released those of his tax forms that are not being audited?
If they will be released, when?
Trump admires Putin.
Putin supports Assad, the dictator of Syria.
Does Trump support Assad?
Trump admires Putin’s way of controlling Russia, and of suppressing dissent.
Putin’s techniques are completely contrary to the US Consititution.
Which of Putin’s techniques would Trump adopt, and which would he reject?
A moderator who does not ask these questions is not exercising due diligence.
An addendum to this post:
Mr. Trump, you have expressed your approval of the forcefulness of so many dictators:
– the Chinese Communist Party, for its brutal suppression in June 1989 of the demonstrating students in Beijing and in other cities;
– Kim Jong Un .
Please name the dictators – present (such as Assad) or historical (such as Saddam Hussein) – whose forcefulness you don’t approve. How do the dictators you do approve differ from those you don’t approve?
Mr. Trump, an op-ed by defense and intelligence experts Michael Morell and Mike Vickers says that “At the Comander-in-Chief Forum on Sept. 7, you [Trump] said that as long as Putin says nice things about you, you will say nice things about him.” If we were back in the 1930s, would you have said “As long as Hitler says nice things about me, I’ll say nice things about him”? After all, Hitler would have liked your isolationism, so he would indeed have said nice things about you.
Fact: Of all of the dictators, past and present, Trump most resembles Mussolini.
