Trump calls first debate moderator a Democrat; records show otherwise

Trump gives a thumbs-up as he arrives at a barbecue restaurant in Greensboro, North Carolina, U.S.(Reuters) – Republican Donald Trump may have gotten it wrong when he said the moderator of the first U.S. presidential debate next week between him and his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, is a Democrat. NBC’s Lester Holt, who will moderate the debate on Monday, is registered as a Republican, according to voter information on the New York State Board of Elections website. NBC did not respond to requests for comment on Tuesday about Holt’s party affiliation.
