Hours after announcing that he would not participate in a Oct. 15 debate, President Trump revived an old complaint that the debate commission deliberately “oscillated” his microphone during a 2016 debate with Hillary Clinton.
Railing against a Fox News guest who said Donald Trump won the presidency despite poor debate performances, Trump held up a series of opt-in online surveys to misleadingly claim that “polls” showed he “won every single debate.” Scientific polls showed otherwise.
Hillary Clinton, who declared that she is “now back to being an activist citizen and part of the resistance,” falsely claimed that no debate moderator ever asked Donald Trump, “how are you going to create more jobs”? It was asked in two of the three debates.
Donald Trump made the baseless accusation that the Hillary Clinton campaign was plotting to schedule two of three presidential debates on nights with NFL football games. The dates were set by the bipartisan Commission on Presidential Debates last September.
