Trump not "memorizing cue cards" ahead of debate

Eric Trump, son of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump, previews the first presidential debate on Monday at Hofstra University.

- Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump isn't taking a traditional approach to debate preparation ahead of his first face-off with Democratic challenger Hillary Clinton Monday night.

As one of Trump's five children, an executive at the Trump Organization and a close confidante to his father on the campaign trail, Eric Trump says Donald Trump doesn't do debate prep like his opponent.

"He is certainly not going to be memorizing cue cards. How many times do you see these scripted politicians and they memorize these little flash cards and they rehearse it in front of a mirror? That's not the kind of person he is. He speaks from the heart," said Trump.

With recent polls showing the GOP nominee up in Nevada, New Mexico, Florida and Iowa, the Trump campaign is feeling positive going into the first debate.

"(This weekend) He'll get in a room with incredibly smart people and talk about smart topics: the best generals, Mayor Giuliani and they will talk and formulate ideas," said Trump.

You can watch the presidential debate from Hofstra University beginning at 9 p.m. on TV and online at FOX 5 News, FOX5NY.com and FOX5NY/Facebook.
