Commission acknowledges Donald Trump’s audio troubles in debate, without explanation – Los Angeles Times
Almost immediately after Monday’s presidential debate, Donald Trump complained he was saddled with aÂ “defective mic.” Now, the Commission on Presidential Debates is acknowledging some technical difficulties with Trump’s audio.
The commission put out a succinct statement Friday that read, in its entirety:Â “Regarding the first debate,Â there were issues regarding Donald Trump’s audio that affected the sound level in the debate hall.”
The statement likely will raise more questions than settle them. There’s no detail on what was the audio issue and what exactly was the impact for the live audience. It also makes no mention of the effect, if any, on sound levels for television viewers. Around 84 million people tuned in to watch Monday’s faceoff, a record for a presidential debate.
The commission did not immediately respond to a request for further comment.
