Last night the world tuned in to watch the final presidential debate of the year. The debate was held in Las Vegas at the Thomas and Mack Center. News anchor Chris Wallace was the moderator for the event. There are nineteen days left to make up your mind and decide who is going to get your vote. This debate was the candidate’s last chance to try and secure votes. The events of the debate unfolded just like the previous two. Things started out calm and cordial, but it didn’t take long before the evasive answers and name calling started.
Trump’s insults, of course, took center stage as he called Clinton a “nasty women” and stated that we needed to get the “bad hombres” out of the country. Both candidates took turns talking over the other and the moderator while trying to get their points across. Clinton pointed out that Trump has often stated that things are rigged or not done properly whenever it appears that things are not going his way. Trump has often stated publicly that he feels that the election is rigged. This brought up the question of whether or not Trump would accept the outcome of the race if it didn’t go in his favor. Trump would not say that he would accept the end results of the race; instead, he stated that he would look at it when the time comes. Trump also stated that he would keep everyone “in suspense”. Trump’s response has now become the focal point of the entire debate.
Many politicians both republican and democrat see Trump’s response being a major issue. Clinton stated during the debate that Trump not agreeing to concede if need be was “horrifying”. So, it makes you wonder if the Trump doesn’t get elected president, will he contest the results drawing out the process even longer.
So, what are your thoughts? Did you catch the debate last night? Was anything said that made you want to change your vote? Let me know in the comments.
