The Commission on Presidential Debates has confirmed that there were indeed audio issues with Donald Trump's microphone during Monday's debate. Shortly after the debate ended, Trump accused Hofstra University of giving him a defective microphone, a claim that many brushed off. But as it turns out, Trump was right.

From The Hill:

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.

The audio issues were apparently confined to within the debate hall, and were not noticeable on the various television and online broadcasts of the debate.
