During his first interview since the chaotic television event, Wallace said he had not predicted that Trump would repeatedly defy the debate guidelines of two minutes of uninterrupted statements from each candidate.

"I never dreamt that it would go off the tracks the way it did," Wallace told the Times.

"I've read some of the reviews, I know people think, 'Well, gee, I didn't jump in soon enough,'" he continued. "I guess I didn't realize - and there was no way you could, hindsight being 20/20 - that this was going to be the president's strategy, not just for the beginning of the debate but the entire debate."

The Fox News anchor added, "I'm a pro. I've never been through anything like this."

According to the Times, when Trump first addressed Biden directly early on in the night, Wallace said, "I thought this was great - this is a debate!"

However, Trump's repeated interruptions quickly drew concern from Wallace.

"If I didn't try to seize control of the debate - which I don't know that I ever really did - then it was going to just go completely off the tracks," Wallace said.

During Tuesday's debate, Wallace was forced to talk over the candidates multiple times, telling Trump at one point, "I think that the country would be better served if we allowed both people to speak with fewer interruptions."

At another point, Wallace again addressed the president directly, saying, "I'm the moderator of this debate and I'd like you to let me ask my questions."

"I guess I'm debating you, not him," Trump responded. "I'm not surprised."

In the hours following the debate, journalists and television pundits alike took to social media and the airwaves to express their opinion about the messy event.

CNN's Jake Tapper unloaded on the president's rule-breaking performance.
