Donald Trump opened his speech before thousands in Dallas, Texas, Monday evening by directing the crowd's attention to what was missing on stage.
"Do you notice what's missing tonight?" the Republican presidential contender asked. "Teleprompters! No teleprompters!"
"We don't want teleprompters," he continued. "That would be so much easier. We read a speech for 45 minutes. Everybody falls asleep listening to the same old stuff. The same old lies. So much easier."
Trump noted that it's "always tough" delivering speeches because they are always aired on live television.
"Every time I speak they put me on live television so I have to make different speeches," he said.
The real estate tycoon then used the issue to skewer his 2016 opponents.
"They go around and make the same speech hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of times. Nobody cares," Trump said.
Last month, Trump called for presidential candidates to be banned from using teleprompter to help covey their message to voters.
“I say we should outlaw teleprompters for anybody running for president,” Trump said at the time.
