Sept. 26 Debate

Donald Trump incorrectly corrects Lester Holt on 'stop and frisk'

"Stop and frisk was ruled unconstitutional in New York, because it largely singled out black and Hispanic young men," Lester Holt said. "No, you're wrong," Donald Trump responded. "It went before a judge, who was a very against-police judge," he argued, and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio declined to appeal.
