Trump: 1st Debate Went Well Despite Hostile Questions, 'Terrible' Microphone
Donald Trump said on "Fox & Friends" this morning that last night's presidential debate went well, despite the fact that he was asked much tougher questions than Hillary Clinton and he was dealing with a "terrible" microphone.
Trump pointed out that moderator Lester Holt pressed him on his tax returns, the President Obama birther scandal and his stance on the Iraq War.
He said that Clinton, on the other hand, was not asked about her email scandal, the Clinton Foundation or the Benghazi terror attack.
Trump said that even though it was obvious that Holt leaned "more than a little" to the left, he was satisfied with the message he got out to the American people, particularly his policies on illegal immigration, law and order, and trade.
"Those are basically the three things we're going to have to get out. And I got them out early and strong," Trump said. "And a lot of people think the poll numbers are going to go up because of that."
As for his "terrible" microphone, Trump said it was going on and off for the audience in the debate hall at Hofstra University and the volume was much lower than Clinton's.
"I wonder if it wasn't set up that way on purpose," Trump said. "I don't want to believe in conspiracy theories, of course, but it was much lower than hers."
"That was, to me, a bad problem, because [if] you have a bad mic, it's not exactly good."
