Republican nominee Donald Trump told an audience of roughly 8,000 cheering fans that if he had cheated in presidential debates the way rival Hillary Clinton had, he would be send to the “electric chair.”
Trump was commenting on the revelation by Wikileaks on Monday that CNN commentator Donna Brazile, who is now the chair of the Democratic National Committee, had been caught again passing debate questions from the network to the Clinton campaign.
Brazile had been exposed earlier, passing a question to the Clinton campaign in advance of a town hall debate against Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-VT).
CNN fired Brazile on Monday.
Trump noted that Brazile was not the core issue — “I don’t care” about her, he said. Rather, he argued, Hillary Clinton should have reported Brazile the first time she tried to pass questions to her.
Trump also talked about cheating at the polls, telling supporters that the only way to overcome fraud would be to vote by the “millions.”
