Donald Trump is blaming Hillary Clinton for a “rigged” debate schedule, but the NFL says this is a lie.

When asked about the debate schedule, Trump replied with “I’ll tell you what I don’t like. It’s against two NFL games. I got a letter from the NFL saying, ‘This is ridiculous.'” As a matter of fact, the debate schedule does clash with a couple of NFL games, and that can certainly upset someone whose entire campaign has been built around the idea of getting as much media attention as possible.


However, there’s a problem with Trump’s claim – the NFL denies it sent a letter. “While we’d obviously wish the debate commission could find another night,” a spokesperson from the NFL said, “we did not send a letter to Trump.”
