Last night (Sunday), the second presidential debate between Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton took place. Throughout the 90-minute debate, the two interrupted each other numerous times. During the debate, Clinton attacked her Republican rival: “His plan will give the wealthy and corporations the biggest tax cuts they’ve ever had […] Donald always takes care of Donald.” Trump responded: “She’s got tremendous hatred. And this country cannot take another four years of Barack Obama.”

One of the most talked-about moments of last night’s debate was the last question when the two were asked to name one positive thing about each other. Clinton said: “I respect his children. His children are incredibly able and devoted and I think that says a lot about Donald. I don't agree with nearly anything else he says or does but I do respect that.”

Trump replied: “I consider her statement about my children to be a very nice compliment. I don’t know if it was meant to be a compliment, but it is a great- I’m very proud of my children […] I will say this about Hillary. She doesn’t quit. She doesn’t give up. I respect that. I tell it like it is. She’s a fighter. I disagree with much of what she’s fighting for. I do disagree with her judgment in many cases. But she does fight hard and she doesn’t quit and she doesn’t give up. And I consider that to be a very good trait.”

The two refused the shake hands before the debate began. When Trump was asked about the audio recordings from his past that recently surfaced and made international headlines, he said: “I have great respect for women. Nobody has more respect for women than I do […] That was locker room talk. I’m not proud of it.”

Clinton was also asked about the recordings from Trump’s past: “With prior Republican nominees for president, I disagreed with them on politics, policies [and] principles but I never questioned their fitness to serve. Donald Trump is different. I said starting back in June that he was not fit to be president and commander-in-chief.”

Trump responded: “It’s just words, folks. It’s just words. Those words, I’ve been hearing them for many years […] I’m going to help the African-Americans. I’m going to help the Latinos, Hispanics. I am going to help the inner cities […] She’s done a terrible job for the African-Americans.”
