Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump feels that he received much tougher questions than his rival candidates in the first GOP debate and said Fox News host Megyn Kelly “behaved very badly” as moderator.

“The questions to me I think were much tougher to me than the questions to anybody else,” Trump told reporters Thursday in the spin room after the Fox News debate in Cleveland, Ohio.

“The questions to me were not nice, I didn’t think they were appropriate and I thought Megyn [Kelly] – I think Megyn behaved very badly personally,” he added.

Trump, leading in the all recently polling of the GOP presidential field, was the center of attention for much of the debate. But it was a question from Kelly about Trump’s disparaging remarks about TV personality Rosie O’Donnell and other women that seemed to most irritate Trump.

“I thought it was an unfair question, they didn’t ask those questions of anybody else,” Trump said.

The businessman said he still confident he won the debate and “really had a good time.”
