NYT: Trump May Skip Presidential Debates Over Not Trusting Debate Commission

According to a report from the NY Times, President Trump may consider skipping Presidential debates over lack of trust in the Commission on Presidential Debates.

After his first debate with Hillary Clinton, President Trump told a reporter after the debate “Did you notice that? My mic was defective within the room.”

The commission on Presidential debates then admitted there was indeed an issue with Trump’s audio.

“Regarding the first debate, there were issues regarding Donald Trump’s audio that affected the sound level in the debate hall,” the statement read.

Hillary attempted to blow off the error, claiming “”Anybody who complains about the microphone is not having a good night.”

The Commission on Presidential Debates issued a one-sentence statement Friday admitting “issues” with Donald Trump‘s audio in this cycle’s first debate Monday.

“Regarding the first debate, there were issues regarding Donald Trump’s audio that affected the sound level in the debate hall,” the statement read.

Per the NY Times:

President Trump is discussing with his advisers the possibility of sitting out the general election debates in 2020 because of his misgivings about the commission that oversees them, according to two people familiar with the discussions.

Mr. Trump has told advisers that he does not trust the Commission on Presidential Debates, the nonprofit entity that sponsors the debates, the two people said.

Less of a concern for Mr. Trump than who will emerge as the Democratic nominee is which media personality will be chosen as the debate moderator, according to people in contact with him.

At a state-of-the-race campaign briefing in Arlington, Va., the president’s advisers declined to comment on what their plan was for the debates. One senior adviser to the president seemed to wince at the question, and said it was not something advisers were prepared to discuss until next year.
