US Presidential election nominees Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in a heated antagonistic debate talked about topics ranging from tax returns to Iraq war, from women’s issues to current President Barack Obama. During the debate, Republican candidate Trump’s political inexperience was visible from his impatience, while Democrat Clinton pushed him to answer various issues from his past including denigration of women and President Obama. Meanwhile, Trump continually interrupted Clinton during the one and half hour long debate which might have pleased a lot of Republican voters in general but might have made a lot of women angry. He also did not answer to a few challenges made by Clinton. Clinton in the debate accused Trump of hiding information and facts about his debts from the banks. Trump, on the other hand, made his comeback by putting Clinton on the backfoot by challenging her on the issue of free trade agreements which according to Trump have cost jobs of Americans.

On many general issues like race and gender, Trump seemed to be on the backfoot. When asked about his repeated challenges to President Obama about his birthplace, he instead claimed credit for the latter releasing his birth certificate. In order to woo the female voters to her side, Clinton reiterated Trump’s series of insulting comments on women over the years. This one and a half hour long debate were split into six segments, with two segments for one topic each. The topics for discussion were: “America’s Direction,” “Achieving Prosperity (the economy),” and “Securing America (national security and foreign policy).” Here is what the Twiteratti had to say on the much anticipated US presidential debate:

Six weeks before the US Presidential elections, which are scheduled to start from November 8, this first debate between a former secretary of state and a real estate businessman was highly anticipated and has induced interest globally and nationally.
