Hillary Clinton wasn't particularly impressed with Donald Trump's debate performance Monday night, and she suggested Tuesday that Trump's complaints about his microphone indicate he wasn't either. Earlier Tuesday, Trump wondered whether his debate microphone was purposely tampered with, because he said his volume seemed lower than Clinton's and his microphone seemed to be capturing a sound some thought sounded like the sniffles. "Anyone who complains about the microphone is not having a good night," Clinton said, in response to a question about their microphones during a brief presser aboard her plane.

Clinton thought Trump's biggest stumbles of the night were his "charges and claims that were demonstrably untrue" and the opinions he offered that "a lot of people would find offensive and off-putting." "I'm excited about where we are in this country," Clinton said. "He talks down America every chance he gets. He calls us names. He calls us a third-world country."

Clinton and Trump will face off again Sunday, Oct. 9, in a presidential debate hosted by Washington University in St. Louis and moderated by ABC's Martha Raddatz and CNN's Anderson Cooper.
