Donald Trump is protesting how two of the three presidential debates between him and Hillary Clinton have been scheduled during NFL games this fall. And he is accusing the Democrats and Clinton of wanting it this way.
In a tweet, the Republican presidential candidate said he thinks his rival pushed the Commission on Presidential Debates to schedule the televised showdowns at times where many of his supporters, like working class white men, might be watching football instead.
“As usual, Hillary & the Dems are trying to rig the debates so 2 are up against major NFL games,” Trump tweeted.
But the Commission said Saturday they did not “consult with any political parties or campaigns in making these decisions.” The organization announced the upcoming debates on Sept. 23, 2015.
