All eyes are on NBC News White House correspondent Kristen Welker as she prepares to host the third and final presidential debate on Thursday.
President Trump and John Biden will have a 90-minute discussion starting at 9 p.m.
Welker, 44, has been a White House correspondent for NBC News since 2011 after working as a news reporter in Rhode Island.
But Trump supporters who raised the issue after being rigorously questioned by previous moderators such as Chris Valace Les and Savannah Guthrie, after they were done with Welker’s president, could find themselves catering for those joint hosts.
Welker comes from an established Democratic family – who has poured cash into party coffers, and anti-Trump, for years.
His mother, July Welker, a leading real estate broker in Philadelphia, and his father, Harvey Welker, a consultant engineer, have donated thousands of dollars to Democratic candidates and close to ઓ 20,000 to Barack Obama alone.
B ડે 3,300 for Biden’s 2020 campaign against Trump and $ 3,100 for Hillary Clinton’s devastating 2016 presidential effort. Between 2004 and 2020, another, 7,300 was contributed to the Democratic National Committee.
In 2012, Welker and his family celebrated Christmas with Obama at the White House.
Although Christine Welker’s party registration is not listed today, she was a Democrat registered in Washington DC in 2012 and Rhode Island in 2004.
During Welker’s tenure as White House correspondent, he has earned a reputation for a terrifying style of interrogation.
“Mr. President. Yes or no. Have you ever worked for Russia? Yes or no?” He made the demand during the confrontation in January 2019.
The treatment is in stark contrast to the administration of its democratic politicos.
In March 2001, Welker was slammed on live television for commenting on what he planned to ask Henry Clinton’s communications director, Jennifer Palmyre, during a post-debate interview in Michigan. Clinton Sen at the time. Bernie Sanders was stuck in a fierce fight for the Democratic nomination.
“I’m going to ask you about Flint,” Velker said of Michigan’s infamous water crisis.
Velker completed his Twitter account last week, taking a closer look at his previous statements and opinions. It was later restored and installed.
“Anyone who has ever dealt with Welker knows that he is a worker, not a journalist. The White House press sees the team the same way they look at AOC or Pelosi if they walk into OC fees, ”a senior White House official told the Post.
