Trump on debate: “I thought it was great”
ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION).
STORY: Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump told reporters he thought the first presidential debate “was great.”
Trump said his rival Democrat Hillary Clinton was “low energy” and that his favorite moment from the debate was talking about trade policy.
Trump complained that he had a “defective mike.” He asked reporters, “Did you notice that? My Mike was defective within the room,” he said.
“I wonder, was that on purpose?” he asked.
Trump also said he thought relations with the Arab world would be “very good,” if he wins the race.
During the debate Clinton accused Trump of racism, sexism and tax avoidance in a heated presidential debate that could reshape the 2016 campaign for the White House.
Trump, a real estate tycoon making his first run for public office, said Clinton’s long years of service represented “bad experience” with few results and suggested her disavowal of a trade deal with Asian countries was insincere
