The night of the CNBC broadcast Trump said he “had a lot of fun.” But this morning the GOP candidate for president unloaded on CNBC’s John Harwood, who was a co-moderator of the third GOP debate.
At a press conference for his new book Crippled America, carried by all the news networks, Trump was asked about the debates, saying “debating is a good thing…it’s healthy,” then adding, “but you don’t want people like Harwood that read a question, bah, bah, bah, that he carefully wrote–his career, in my opinion his career is probably ruined or certainly threatened.”
About 10 minutes later, Trump added, “I think Becky Quick is a terrific person. I think Carl [Quintanilla] is terrific but I will tell you, John Harwood was a disgrace to CNBC.”
Trump is also meeting at NBC today, to begin preparations for his hosting gig on Saturday Night Live this weekend. “I’m not too nervous. But we’ll do a good job and we’ll have a fantastic show. We’ll have a lot of fun.”
Just like that CNBC debate.
