It turns out Trump might have been right.

The Commission on Presidential Debates confirmed Friday that there were issues with Trump's audio in the debate hall. But it didn't offer any specifics — and didn't address a comment Trump made Tuesday morning. 

"I wonder, was it set up that way on purpose?" he said Tuesday on "Fox & Friends."

Trump first told reporters about his microphone issue in the spin room following Monday's debate. He also seemed to sniffle during the debate, which led to video compilations online. He told "Fox & Friends" the next morning he never sniffled. Rather, he blamed the repeated sniffling sound on a bad microphone.

Trump commented on the commission's statement Saturday on Twitter.

"The so-called Commission on Presidential Debates admitted to us that the DJT audio & sound level was very bad. So why didn't they fix it?" he tweeted.
