The Washington Examiner reports:
“You’re going to have to take that off, please. You can take it off. How many feet are you away?” Trump asked in response to a question he said was muffled.
“I’ll speak a lot louder,” the reporter said. “Well, if you don’t take it off — you’re very muffled. So, if you would take it off, it would be a lot easier,” Trump said in response.
“I’ll just speak a lot louder. Is that better?” the reporter asked with increased volume, prompting a sigh from Trump. “That’s better,” Trump replied.
