Trump2The New York Times reported Wednesday that multiple Donald Trump advisors say that they tried to prepare the Republican presidential candidate for the first debate Monday night, but Trump lost interest and just started chatting about other topics.
“Mr. Trump’s debate preparation was unconventional,” The Times reported. “Aides have introduced a podium and encouraged him to participate in mock debates, but he has not embraced them, focusing mostly on conversations and discussions with advisers.”
“There were early efforts to run a more standard form of general election debate-prep camp, led by Roger Ailes, the ousted Fox News chief, at Mr. Trump’s golf course in Bedminster, N.J,” they report. “But Mr. Trump found it hard to focus during those meetings, according to multiple people briefed on the process who requested anonymity to discuss internal deliberations.”
