He added a dig at Harris, noting he had been a public defender and "didn't become a prosecutor".

"Donald Trump thinks Wall Street built America".
The culling on Thursday will likely start with long-shot candidates like author and spiritual teacher Marianne Williamson, who closed by vowing to "harness love for political purposes", and tech entrepreneur Andrew Yang, who spoke the least during the debate.
