Soon after his heated presidential debate with Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton on Monday at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York, Republican nominee Donald Trump alleged that he was given a defective mic.
In typical ‘Trump Style’, Trump went inside the media room and announced his microphone was not working properly.
“Did you notice that? My mic was defective within the room,” Mr Trump told reporters.
He alleged that it was done deliberately. “I wonder. Was that on purpose? Was that on purpose? I had a mic that wasn’t working properly…,” he said.
Trump supporters believed that he did a bad show against Hillary as the audience could hardly hear his voice. But, the reality was that the major interference in TV during his talk was some sniffing by the Republican nominee.
Anyway, he was ridiculed by social media for the noise.
Even before his debate, Trump has told that many people have considered against him to ensure his defeat. During his campaign trail last August, he had expressed his ‘fear’ that the presidential election “is going to be rigged”.
He, however, seemed happy with moderator Lester Holt and the venue of the debate. During the campaign, Trump campaign’s major worry was the role of the moderator and Trump himself expressed fears of a biased moderator sabotaging his chances in the presidential race.
“I wish I had no moderator, like those debates during the time of Abrahalm Lincoln,” Trump was quoted as saying to media during his campaign days.
Here are Twitter reactions on his speech:
#DonaldTrump‘s debate performance was so bad his family dropped him at the Hempstead train station instead of Mineola.

Some men believe they can buy, brag or bluster their way past anything. Turns out not so much in a debate in front of millions #DonaldTrump
