In the presidential debates, Donald Trump denied that he told people to "check out sex tape" of Alicia Machado. Did he in fact say "check out sex tape" about her?

Yes, he did. Sept 30th on Twitter.

Link to tweet (May disappear) Screen Shot of Tweet.

Did Crooked Hillary help disgusting (check out sex tape and past) Alicia M become a U.S. citizen so she could use her in the debate?

Now, we can not be certain that it actually was Trump on the account at that time. But, if it was not, it was most likely a trusted member of the campaign staff.

    Out of context, seems questionable. In context, not really.

    @AlexanderO'Mara He's said and done worse and his supporters love him for it. Unlikely. Dec 17, 2016 at 21:06

    @CrisCudmore If Trump is not questioning the authenticity of the post, why are you? No need for disclaimer.

    @ventsyv Because I am a skeptic, and I must examine all possibilities. Also, the question was directly about Trump denying he said this. Dec 19, 2016 at 14:50
