Donald Trump shared the stage with fellow Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for the 2nd US Presidential debate. During the first half of the debate, Donald Trump began to persist and follow Clinton while she was seen responding to questions. The two Presidential nominees sparred over a number of key issues, including immigration, energy, tax policies, and the fight against the Islamic State.
Donald Trump attacked former President Bill Clinton too for his treatment of women and vowed, if he won the White House, to put Hillary Clinton in jail for operating a private email server while U.S. secretary of state. In a contentious town-hall debate, Trump said he would appoint a special prosecutor to look into his Democratic rival’s email use because she had endangered national security during her tenure as President Barack Obama’s chief diplomat from 2009-2013.
The 90-minute debate got off to a chilly start when the two candidates greeted each other without the traditional handshake. It quickly turned into an bitter discussion of a 2005 video that emerged on Friday in which Trump was heard using vulgar language and talking about groping women without consent. Twitter soon picked up on Trump’s aggressive behaviour. View the best reactions:
Someone should tell Trump that pacing/lurking behind a woman behind her back isn’t helping him look less like a sexual predator.#debate

A couple of times I’ve actually feared for Hillary’s physical safety based on Trump’s expression while standing behind her. #debate

Trumps body language is “Hermes employer following me around the store.”

This is surreal. HRC breaking down health care issues in detail & Trump wandering around and menacing her by standing behind her
