Fox News’ Harris Faulkner got into a feisty debate with Republican New Hampshire Gov. Chris Sununu over former President Donald Trump.

Sununu praised Florida Republican Gov. Ron DeSantis‘ recent appearance in Iowa while criticizing Trump’s, arguing voters in New Hampshire and Iowa don’t particularly want Trump. Sununu claimed Trump did not speak about the future of the nation and rather just read from a binder, prompting pushback from Harris.

“I don’t know that it’s fair to say he didn’t really talk about anything about the future, I mean I watched that, I didn’t completely get that out of it,” Faulkner said. “He was —”

“What did he say about the future?” Sununu interjected. (RELATED: Fox News Host Repeatedly Interrupts Gov. Sununu To Ask If He’d Support Trump In 2024)

“Let me finish my sentence,” Faulkner shot back. “He was lower key, and I want to ask strategy for just a second. Is there strategy in being that and just letting everybody else do what they do? He doesn’t need to reintroduce himself. I’m just curious cause you’ve run and won, what is the strategy if you’re an incumbent?”

Sununu argued Trump is focusing too heavily on his legal woes but didn’t speak about “draining the swamp” or “fiscal responsibility,” prompting Faulkner to again interject.

“You think people have a question about that from him? Do you honestly think?”

“I mean yes because he didn’t do it,” Sununu said.

“The criticism I’m hearing about him from Republicans overall is that Americans who are polled don’t feel like any of the candidates are talking about them enough,” Faulkner said, adding she thinks a debate would be good for the candidates before turning gears toward Biden.
