Republican front-runner Donald Trump shut down a question from CNBC debate moderator Becky Quick Wednesday night.

Trump originally denied Quick’s statement that he has been critical of Mark Zuckerberg’s immigration stance.

QUICK: You have been very critical of Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook who has wanted to increase these number of H1b —

TRUMP: I was not at all critical of him. In frank, he’s complaining that we’re losing some of the best people … I am all in favor of keeping these talented people here so they can go to work in Silicon Valley.

QUICK: So where did I read this and come up with this you’re —

TRUMP: Probably, I don’t know. You people write this stuff.
