Republican and Democratic nominees, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, face off in the last one-on-one debate in the run-up to the US 2016 election. The third presidential debate was held at the Thomas & Mack Center of the University of Nevada in Las Vegas on Wednesday. Trump looked more restrained and disciplined as the debate started unlike previous encounters, trying not to interrupt Clinton and maintain his composure.
The two candidates focused on fundamental differences between the two parties, namely gun rights, abortion and immigration, rather than their policies. Immigration was one of the nascent issues at the debate, with Clinton accusing the New York businessman of exploiting undocumented immigrants during the construction of the Trump Tower in New York. Trump stressed on his proposal for building a wall on the Mexican border, asserting Hillary also sought that once.
The billionaire also accused the Democratic administration of President Barack Obama of deporting “millions” of people. “President Obama has moved millions of people out. Nobody knows about it, nobody talks about it. But under Obama, millions of people have been moved out of this country. They’ve been deported. She doesn’t want to say that, but that’s what’s happened, and that’s what happened big league,” he said.
Trump said he would also deport “some bad, bad people in this country,” referring to asylum seekers. Clinton referred to leakages of secret documents against her campaign by the WikiLeaks, suggesting the reason for that is that Russian President Vladimir Putin seeks a “puppet” US president.
