—Novi, Mich. -- Donald Trump repeated his call Friday night for his supporters to not just vote for him on Election Day, but to watch out for any efforts to rig the results on Nov. 8.

At the same time, Trump also issued a demand to President Obama that should Hillary Clinton ever face criminal charges under his watch, not to pardon the Democratic nominee.

"And here’s a demand I’m making today to President Obama," Trump told the crowd. "Mr. President, will you pledge not to issue a pardon to Hillary Clinton and her co-conspirators for her many crimes against our country and against society itself.

"Will you make that pledge? No one is above the law," Trump told a packed crowd in Novi Friday night.

Over the summer, the FBI recommended no criminal charges for the former secretary of state and the Justice Department said it would not move forward with any case at this time.

Towards the end of his remarks, Trump also repeated his demand to watch out for rigging at voting booths.

"Make sure everything is on the up and up," the Republican nominee said. "So go to your place and vote. And go pick some other place and go sit there with your friends and make sure it’s on the up and up. Because you know what, that’s a big, big problem in this country and nobody wants to talk about it."

Earlier in the day, the Commission on Presidential Debates issued a statement admitting there had been some audio issues Monday night that affect the volume of Trump's microphone inside the debate hall at Hofstra University during the first Presidential Debate.

"It was just announced by the commission that holds the debate that Donald Trump’s microphone was defective as I’ve been saying," said Trump. "I mean, working that microphone was a hell of a lot more difficult than working crooked Hillary Clinton, that I can tell you."
