Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Tuesday wondered if someone purposefully set up his microphone at Monday’s presidential debate to malfunction.

“I had a problem with a microphone that didn’t work,” Mr. Trump said on “Fox and Friends.” “I don’t know if you saw that in the room, but my microphone was terrible. I wonder was it set up that way on purpose. My microphone, in the room, they couldn’t hear me. It was going on and off.”

“Which isn’t exactly great — I wonder if it was set up that way — but it was terrible,” he said. “When I tested it, it was beautiful, like an hour before. I said ‘what a great mic.’ “

“It was on and off, and it was much lower than hers,” Mr. Trump said. “I don’t want to believe in conspiracy theories of course, but it was much lower than hers and it was crackling, and she didn’t have that problem.”

“You have a bum mic. It’s not exactly good,” he said.
