The Commission on Presidential Debates on Friday revealed that Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's audio was impacted earlier in the week during his first televised dialogue with Democratic counterpart Hillary Clinton.

"Regarding the first debate, there were issues regarding Donald Trump's audio that affected the sound level in the debate hall," the commission said in a statement. 

However, it provided no evidence that the audio issue affected the television audience of more than 80 million people, CNN reported.

Trump had complained that his microphone was not functioning properly during Monday's debate.

"And they also had, gave me a defective mic. Did you notice that? My mic was defective within the room," he said.

Meanwhile, Clinton mocked Trump the day after the debate for complaining about his mic.

"Anybody who complains about the microphone is not having a good night," Clinton said.
