Financial backers of Donald Trump's campaign "realize they've been played" after the hyped promise of an "October Surprise" that would devastate Hillary Clinton failed to materialize, The Washington Post reports.

For weeks, Trump supporter Roger Stone and other backers of the Republican presidential candidate have been counting on the release of bombshell documents from Wikileaks that would supposedly doom Clinton's presidential aspirations.

But at a press conference on Tuesday, Julian Assange, founder of the website known for its controversial leaks of secret documents, dismissed the idea of an explosive announcement and instead promoted his group's 10th anniversary.

"That didn't go over well with Trump backers who had stayed up through the night, thinking they'd be watching live the unveiling of the death blow to the Clinton campaign," The Post's Griff Witte wrote.
