Trump apparently views the ghastly, uncivilized debate which put America to shame as one of his best moments. He tweeted Wednesday that the contest had drawn the "highest cable television ratings of all time” for a presidential debate, as over 73 million people tuned in.
Although the spectacle was impressive for perhaps all the wrong reasons, it still drew a smaller audience than the number of people who watched the first debate between Trump and Hillary Clinton in 2016.
Is The Donald trying to relive his glory days?
