Donald Trump's campaign manager says her boss' comment that presidential debate moderator Lester Holt is a Democrat isn't a lie, because the candidate didn't know Holt's voter registration.
The Republican nominee tried to discredit Holt when he told Fox's Bill O'Reilly last week that "Lester is a Democrat. It's a phony system. They are all Democrats."
Holt is the anchor of NBC Nightly News and is registered as a Republican in New York.
Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway was asked about why Trump would make a definitive statement about something he didn't know on MSNBC's "Morning Joe."
She said, "He didn't lie. A lie would mean he knew the man's party affiliation."
