“I thought Vice President Pence did a remarkable job the other night, which I really hope the president will study,” Gingrich told “Outnumbered Overtime” anchor Harris Faulkner.

“He was calm. He was focused. He would go back and say, ‘You didn’t answer the question,’ ” he continued. “He wasn’t hostile. He just stayed on her. And I think, as a result, he had a very good evening. And the country had a much better sense of what a radical Kamala Harris is.”

Trump was roundly criticized for his debate style in his first showdown with Biden last month, with the event from Cleveland marred by interruptions and personal insults. Biden has seen a bump in polling since the first debate with the election just 24 days away.

The tweet comes after the Commission on Presidential Debates announced Thursday the planned Oct. 15 debate moderated by Steve Scully would be conducted virtually.

Trump quickly shot down the proposal, while the Biden campaign announced it would participate in an ABC town hall instead.

The final debate between Trump and Biden is scheduled for Oct. 22.
