Trump and Clinton set to clash at first presidential debateWith 100 million people watching, the U.S. presidential candidates will take to the stage for their first televised debate this evening, with the latest polls indicating an extremely close race. Trump is expected to focus his attack on Clinton’s email controversy while the Democratic candidate is expected to attack her Republican rival’s lack of political experience.
The United States is all set for the first presidential debate between Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and Republican candidate Donald Trump who will share the same stage for the first time tonight (Monday). The latest polls indicate that the two candidates are in for an extremely close race, perhaps the closest the U.S. has seen for many years, turning this evening’s event into a nail-biting political drama and not only a highly entertaining affair.
The latest polls predict a tie between the candidates including in crucial states such as Pennsylvania. The debate is not expected to turn into a bloody affair as both candidates are likely to refrain from making any offensive statements or name-calling.
In the debate, Trump is expected to focus his attack on Clinton’s email controversy and other embarrassing affairs like the Benghazi scandal while Clinton is expected to attack her Republican rival’s lack of political experience.
Hofstra University in Long Island, which is hosting the debate, is preparing in full force for the huge televised event and both candidates have already checked the microphones and adjusted the lighting to their liking. If one of the candidates were to slip up during the debate, which could become one of the most widely viewed political battles in history, the race could very well be decided tonight.
