On ABC's THIS WEEK on July 31st, Donald Trump told George Stephanopoulos that the NFL sent him a letter complaining about the presidential debate schedule.
Stephanopoulos asked Trump if he was happy with the debate schedule and Trump said, "Well, I'll tell you what I don't like. It's against two NFL games. I got a letter from the NFL saying, "This is ridiculous. Why are the debates against--" 'cause the NFL doesn't wanna go against the debates."
After that comment was reported, the NFL immediately sent out a response to CNN's Brian Stelter saying they never sent Trump a letter.
Top @NFL spokesman tells me: "While we'd obviously wish the debate commission could find another night, we did not send a letter to Trump."

Stelter followed up with that knowledge when he interviewed the new Trump communications man, Jason Miller on Reliable Sources.
Miller was flummoxed when Stelter kept trying to get a response from him about the bogus letter that Trump said he received.
MILLER: I think that, you know, again, it's semantics a little bit here, Brian, but the point is he was notified --
STELTER: It's not semantics if you send me a letter versus make a phone call.
Once again Donald Trump is caught in a lie. How many lies will it take for the media to treat Donald Trump as the serial liar he actually is?
And he continued lying about the 2016 presidential debates when he tweeted this.
As usual, Hillary & the Dems are trying to rig the debates so 2 are up against major NFL games. Same as last time w/ Bernie. Unacceptable!

There is no evidence of this since the debate commission already set up the schedule long ago.
