Holt moderated the Democratic presidential candidates' debate in January, 2016, alongside a panel of NBC political reporters, as well as the first presidential debate on September 26, 2016.

However in 2018, he changed his party affiliation to independent. After the debate, Donald Trump said that Holt did "a good job." Journalists also said that Holt performed admirably; for example he challenged Trump when Trump said that he originally opposed the war in Iraq, which was proven to be a false statement.
