Debate watchers took to Twitter to commend moderator Kristen Welker’s debate performance Thursday night.
Many commented on the NBC News reporter's ability to keep the contentious rivals under control and effectively lead the evening’s conversation after the rocky first debate, when President TrumpDonald John TrumpJudge rules to not release Russia probe documents over Trump tweets Trump and advisers considering firing FBI director after election: WaPo Obama to campaign for Biden in Florida MORE repeatedly interrupted moderator Chris WallaceChristopher (Chris) WallaceBiden's debate strategy is to let Trump be Trump Biden: Muting mics at debate 'a good idea,' we need 'more limitations' Ex-GOP senator on debate commission blasts Trump's bias accusations, warns of 'incalculable damage' MORE of Fox News.

President Trump himself praised Welker during the debate, just days after he claimed she was “terrible and unfair,” saying, “By the way I respect the way you're handling this.”
Some of Trump’s supporters condemned Welker's handling of the debate, however, claiming she unfairly gave Biden more talking time.
