Trump Criticizes GOP Debates: ‘It’s Like Death’

February 21, 2016 2:54 p.m.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump criticized the Republican National Committee and the way it organized GOP debates, saying that it felt “like death.”

Trump said on “Fox News Sunday” that he was self-funded and “not controlled by special interests.”

“But the rooms are stacked. Every time I go to a debate, I walk in, it’s like death,” Trump said. “And when other people — I won’t mention names, when other people speak, they say something stupid and get standing ovations.”

“It’s very unfair what the RNC is doing. They’re stacking the room,” he continued. “And that’s unfair — with donors and special interests and lobbyists, and that’s unfair.”
