Team Trump is "very aware" of Hillary Clinton's debating style – and weaknesses – and believes she was "easily flummoxed" on the debate stage by former primary rival Sen. Bernie Sanders.

In an interview Wednesday on Fox News Radio's "Kilmeade and Friends," Donald Trump's campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said the Democratic nominee "got tripped up quite a bit" in the face-offs with Sanders.

"She [was] easily tripped up by Bernie Sanders on foreign policy, on her record of failures," Conway said. "She was easily taken off guard. She seemed much more defensive. We’re very aware of that."

Conway said in Clinton's 2008 primary race against then-Sen. Barack Obama, she "had the confidence of a front-runner. This was her race to lose."

"In 2016, she was easily flummoxed by Bernie Sanders if you go back and see those debates," Conway declared. "I saw a lot less confidence and a lot more wariness on the debate stage in 2016 stylistically."

"Here she is trying to be a little bit more of a centrist, a little bit more of a moderate, like her husband was — his winning formula in 1992 — not realizing that the modern Democratic Party would never welcome [former President] Bill Clinton 1992 now," she said.

Conway was also critical of Clinton's performance during a NBC News presidential forum this month.

"Her answers are so lengthy, so lawyerly," she said. "She only got like six or seven questions that night because she takes forever. She’s apologizing; she’s dissembling; she’s deflecting."

The first presidential debate is scheduled for Monday at Hofstra University in Hempstead, N.Y.
