Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump went head-on for their third and last debate on Wednesday. Trump and Clinton carried their different visions for the Supreme Court under their potential presidencies in the last debate, where the Republican was talking about the diminishing US economy.
During the debate Clinton said that “When you inherit the level of economic catastrophe which President Obama inherited…President Obama doesn’t get the credit he deserves,”. “I propose that we invest from the ground up…not the top down,” she added.
Responding back Donald Trump said, “I just met some high representatives of India…they are growing at 8 percent.”
“Our country is stagnant…we’ve lost out jobs…we’re not making anything,” Trump said. “I pass factories that were thriving 25 years ago…and because of the bill her husband signed, it’s horrible what has happened to these people,” he said.
Donald Trump said his plan to boost the economy is to make the United States’ rich allies pay more for military support and to renegotiate trade deals. Trump also said he would cut taxes “massively.” The Republican presidential nominee is also criticizing current trade deals, saying he would renegotiate them to get better terms for the US or leave them.
The third and last presidential debate opened with a measured, policy-focused discussion- a stark contrast to the heated and highly personal clashes that defined the earlier contests. However, within 30 minutes, Trump reverted to his previous style of repeatedly bursting in to interrupt Clinton as well as moderator Chris Wallace of Fox News.
In 90-minute contest in Las Vegas came just under three weeks before Election Day and with early voting underway in more than 30 states. For Trump, the debate marked one of his last chances to reshape a race that appears to be slipping away from him. Clinton’s campaign is confidently expanding into traditionally Republican states, while Trump’s narrow electoral path is shrinking.
