Republican presidential frontrunner Donald Trump broke the rules set by Fox News at Thursday’s GOP debate, consulting with his campaign manager during a commercial break.

Corey Lewandowski, Trump’s campaign manager, went on stage to speak with the businessman at the first commercial break, violating Fox’s rule that candidates would not be allowed to have contact with their campaigns, CNN reported on Saturday, citing rival campaign sources.

The anonymous sources said Trump has consulted with his campaign manager backstage at previous debates, even though it was forbidden. Thursday was more extreme, they said, because Lewandowski met with Trump on stage.

Lewandowski refused to leave the stage when asked, so the network allowed the other campaigns to consult with their candidates as well.
