Rudy Giuliani declares who ‘clearly won’ GOP debate’

Former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani assessed Thursday’s Republican presidential debate and declared a winner.

Giuliani, a former presidential candidate in his own right, appeared on Fox 5’s “Good Day New York” Friday and said that while it was a close call, front-runner Donald Trump won the debate.

Show hosts Rosanna Scotto and Greg Kelly were predictably upset with Sen. Ted Cruz’s “New York values” comment, and Giluiani said Trump’s response to it was a “knockout blow,” but concluded that Trump won the debate without it.

“He clearly won the debate,” Giuliani said. “I thought his mastery of the economy was superb. He sort of left them all listening as he lectured, I thought, very effectively and passionately about how to deal with China. About how China controls North Korea. Let’s stop complaining about North Korea and let’s start putting the pressure on China because without China there is no North Korea. None of (the other candidates) really made that point.

I thought that the idea that being a free trader, which I am, doesn’t mean you allow unfair trade to go on which a lot of them seem to be willing to tolerate. I think his involvement in business came through in a way where the others were kind of listening and like, maybe they didn’t quite understand, so that’s why I thought he won the debate.”
