At a rally in Warren, Mich., the GOP presidential nominee blasted interim Democratic National Committee (DNC) Chairwoman Donna Brazile for apparently sharing a debate question with Clinton’s campaign during the Democratic presidential primaries.

Trump called on Brazile to be fired from the DNC at a rally Monday in Grand Rapids, Mich., after WikiLeaks published an email in which Brazile appears to alert Clinton aides to a question planned for the next day's debate. Brazile resigned as a CNN contributor earlier this month after a separate email included her saying she got questions in advance of a town hall. The network accepted her resignation.

“If they fired Donna Brazile, why aren’t they firing Hillary Clinton?” Trump asked on Monday afternoon. “Why is she allowed to run?” 

The real estate mogul also criticized the media, arguing Clinton should be asked why she never admitted to receiving questions in advance.

“The media which is one of the most dishonest groups you’re ever going to meet,” Trump said. “The media never says, 'Why didn’t you turn it in?' "

Trump is making a last-minute push in Michigan, a traditionally blue state, about a week before Election Day.

Clinton holds a 7-point lead in the state in RealClearPolitics polling average.
