Fox News host Chris Wallace, who helped moderate last week’s first GOP debate, said on Thursday he doesn’t think Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump likes being asked difficult questions.

“I don’t think he particularly likes tough questions,” Wallace said while discussing Trump and the debate on the Fox radio show “Kilmeade & Friends.” “They were tough questions and I don’t apologize for anything I asked.”

Trump has said that he thought the Fox moderators were unfair to him, going so far as saying that Fox host Megyn Kelly had blood “coming out of her wherever” during the debate.

Wallace explained to the radio show’s host, Brian Kilmeade, that he asked Trump questions about immigration and the bankruptcies of his companies for a specific reason.

“You can’t ask him about his voting record, you can’t ask him about what he did as governor of a state — all he’s got is his business record,” Wallace said on the radio program. “Why wouldn’t you ask that question?”

“It would be like having Mitt Romney and not asking about Bain Capital,” Wallace continued, referencing the investment firm Romney co-founded.
