Some observers on social media on Sunday said that Donald Trump used occasionally strange pacing during the second presidential debate in St. Louis.

During the debate, several Twitter users and Trump-critics said they observed that while Trump wasn't speaking he often wandered around the stage, standing behind his chair and leaning on the back of it.
