Ben Carson joined Bill O'Reilly tonight to react to the third GOP debate and share his vision for how the format of future debates should be changed.

"I think the debate last night crystallized the fact that these 'gotcha'-type questions are not very helpful in terms of helping the people understand who the candidates are and what their policies are," Carson said.

He said that he's asked his staff to reach out to the other campaigns and discuss how the debate formats could be improved.

He suggested giving candidates 2 to 5 minutes to discuss their policies at length, with follow-up questions after.

"This was so bad that I think even the RNC will recognize that that was a mistake, and maybe we need to be looking for a better way to do this, a way that will advantage us rather than advantaging the other party."
