But at one point in the debate, Trump told Welker, “By the way, so far, I respect very much the way you’re handling this, I have to say.”
Some viewers were more critical, including one who said he counted Welker interrupting Trump 39 times and Biden just three times. Another said it wasn’t so much that Welker did a good job, but that she stood out in comparison to previous moderators. But another Twitter commenter perhaps summed up the night best, saying, “Both sides will say their candidate won. America won because we saw a decent debate. Leave it at that.”
I counted, she interrupted Trump 39 times, she interrupted Biden 3 times… No, I'm not joking (it might be important to note that Trump also interrupted the moderator 35 times, while Biden interrupted the moderator 19 times)

Lol, both sides will say their candidate won. America won because we saw a decent debate. Leave it at that.
