Presidential Debate: Watch Donald Trump Vs. Hillary Clinton (VIDEO)
The debate was held at Hofstra University in Long Island, NY, and was moderated by NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt. Trump and Clinton previously spoke at the same venue earlier this month for the Commander-In-Chief Forum, but Monday marked the first time the two candidates took the stage at the same time and there were fireworks.
Prior to the main event, Clinton wrote on Twitter, “RT this if you’ve got Hillary’s back tonight. #Debates2016.” The Democratic nominee later added, “Trump can’t win tonight’s debate by lying to the American people,” along with an anti-Trump campaign video. Meanwhile, the usually outspoken Trump has so far remained quiet about the debate on social media; however, the Republican nominee did retweet a Bloomberg article indicating he’s leading the polls at 43 percent compared to Clinton’s 41 percent.
With roughly seven weeks until election day, both presidential nominees came out with full force against their opponent in the first of three scheduled debates. Check out the video below of the first presidential debate between Trump and Clinton! NOTE: Videos are no longer available.
