'We Beat Her by Millions': Trump Touts His Speech's High TV Ratings
During a rally in Colorado today, Donald Trump touted the higher Nielsen ratings drawn by his national convention speech last week over that of Hillary Clinton's last night.
Clinton's acceptance speech averaged 28 million viewers across the biggest cable channels. Trump's, meanwhile, drew an average of 30 million.
"We beat her by millions on television," Trump said. "Millions! We beat her by a lot...but honestly, the numbers were incredible. Which tells you isn't it good to have Trump running for the presidency?"
Trump said he tuned in "out of curiosity" to Clinton's speech, saying he was wondering if she would mention his name, or congratulate him for getting more primary votes than any Republican in history.
"I thought she'd give me a big fat beautiful congratulation. You know if she did that, would that have been cool? Would that have been great?"
