"That's just an unheard-of number," Michael Cohen of the Trump Organization said of the high ratings CNN received for Tuesday's Democratic presidential debate.
Cohen touted Trump picked up nearly 150,000 new followers on Twitter while live-tweeting the debate. Cohen claimed a "big portion" of the 15 million who watched is due to Trump's promotion of the debate.
"Hillary picked up 25,000," Cohen said of her Twitter followers. "So I think what it means to me is that the interest in Donald Trump versus anybody else is six times that, right? I think a big portion of that 15 million viewership, which is about half of what the Republicans got, is really due to Mr. Trump."
