Trump Broke Debate Rules, Report Says

Trump Broke Debate Rules: Report Says

Donald Trump broke the rules of last Thursday’s Fox News Republican presidential debate, consulting his campaign manager during a commercial break, CNN reports.

Two rival campaign officials of GOP candidate Donald Trump are alleging the Republican frontrunner broke Fox News’ rules during Thursday night’s debate in Detroit, according to CNN Money.

Trump reportedly broke debate rules when he consulted with his campaign manager, Corey Lewandowski, onstage during a commercial break, multiple rival campaign sources told CNN Money. Lewandowski was reportedly asked to leave the stage, but refused. (The network prohibits candidates from having contact with their campaigns or rival campaign sources during a debate.)

Because Trump broke set rules, Fox News allowed the campaigns of his fellow candidates — Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz and John Kasich — backstage.

Trump’s breaking of rules is apparently not the first time the businessman has done so on the debate stage. CNN Money reports that he has met with his advisor backstage during multiple debates.

    Trump has shown the only rules that are important are his. I think they should have .simply cancelled the debate. He got his own way in the end didn’t he?

    Rules concocted by criminals were meant to be broken.
