Debate Commission Says There Were 'Issues' With Trump's Audio
Trump said his mic at the debate "was bad."
-- The Commission on Presidential Debates admitted today that Republican nominee Donald Trump's audio was not working properly during Monday's night debate at Hofstra University.
"Regarding the first debate, there were issues regarding Donald Trump's audio that affected the sound level in the debate hall," according to a statement from the commission.
Janet Brown, executive director of the CPD, told ABC News that the audio issue did not impact the broadcast. The specific issues affecting Trump's audio were not clear.
The CPD said it will not replace the microphones in the remaining two presidential debates or the upcoming vice presidential debate, which will be held next Tuesday in Virginia.
Trump has openly complained about his faulty mic following the presidential debate.
"No sniffles. No. You know, the mic was very bad, but maybe it was good enough to hear breathing, but there was no sniffles. I don’t have -- I have no allergy," Trump said Tuesday morning on Fox News.
