Donald Trump questioned whether the Commission on Presidential Debates gave him a defective microphone on purpose, polling his supporters to ask whether they believed it was a coincidence.
The GOP nominee said that he believes he won Monday night’s debate “even though they gave me a bum mic.”
“I go to mics all the time, the mics are working. Here we have the Commission on Presidential Debates, big fancy name and they give me a bum mic,” Trump said Saturday night at a rally in Manheim, Penn.
“How many people in this room maybe think that was done on purpose?” he asked the crowd, which roared with agreement.
