"This mic is terrible. Stupid mic keeps popping,” he continued.
 
“Do you hear that, George? Don't pay him! Don't pay him. You know, I believe in paying, but when somebody does a bad job like this stupid mic, you shouldn't pay the bastard. Terrible. Terrible. It's true."
 
The microphone gave Trump trouble throughout the event, making it difficult for his speech to be heard by supporters in person as well as on live streams.
