Hello everyone! Just sharing a few important links in preparation for the debate later tonight!
HI EVERYONE! Sorry for the lateness. The wifi in downtown DC is once again, not stellar. The candidates are currently discussing the first question- about the US Supreme Court.
More specifically, how they would impact gun legislation with their Supreme Court picks.
Now the candidates are discussing abortion.
Donald Trump is pro-life, Hillary Clinton is pro-choice.
Clinton says she will defend women’s rights to make their own healthcare decisions.
Hi Guys! Rebecca here, back at it again with the the live-blog for the FINAL 2016 Presidential Election Debate. The whole SU Intern Crew—Nellie + Brittney included will be keeping you updated on the latest news and drama from this last debate on all our platforms from Bus Boys and Poets with our international student’s panel! Make sure you join the conversation using suwatchparty because we want to know what issues from this election that are important to YOU!
“That is not what happens in these cases.” Busboy’s erupts in claps and laughter after Clinton goes after Trump’s spiel on late term abortions.
ON TO IMMIGRATION! Lets see if we get a “build the wall.”
Annnd he brings up the wall!!!!
“We have some bad hombres here.”- Trump: Busboy’s erupts in laughter.
Up next: Immigration. What are you right and your opponent wrong?
When Hillary mentions that Trump “choked” when meeting the Mexican president (he did not being up the wall then), Busboy’s laughs and claps.
Trump says Clinton “Never gets anything done.”
Clinton wants to get everybody out of the shadows and wants to get employers like Tump to stop exploiting immigrants.
Someone screams “BIG LEAGUE!”
I’ve also heard there is a drinking game afoot for every time he says it.
We will not have open borders and reform says hillaryclinton but keeps getting interrupted by moderator and donaldtrump
Curious about what “Wikileaks” is?
Here’s an article with the latest.
“Hold on folks, cause this is going to end up getting out of control.” – Chris Wallace breaks into the debate chatter.
“He’d rather have a puppet for a president” Hillary to Donald about Putin.
“She doesn’t like Putin because Putin has outsmarted her.” – Trump
Trump’s second “I DON’T KNOW PUTIN!” of the night.
Again, “I don’t know Putin, I’ve never met him. He’s not my best friend” crowd at BBP erupts in laughter again.
“She’s been proven to be a liar.” Trump on Clinton, about nuclear weapons.
Chris Wallace laughs about getting through the next topic…the economy!
Wait— that was Immigration? Boy, did we get very far from that topic.
Hillary wants to make college debt free…students what do you think about that? suwatchparty
Clinton wants the “biggest jobs program since the New Deal.” She also wants equal pay for equal work, and debt free college.
There are some cheers of “BERNIE” as she talks about her plans….has she been moved to the left by her primary challenger, Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders?
Calls President Obama’s presidency a “regime.”
Says America will have more free trade, but better deals.
Trump says “Correct” at a Chris Wallace fact. BBP crowd bursts into laughter.
“The one thing you do have over me is experience- but it’s BAD experience.”- Trump
“You talk, but you don’t do anything.”– Trump
Trump believe’s the country will be a “mess” if Clinton becomes President.
The biggest cheer of the night comes for Hillary’s compare/contrast of her past 30 years to Trump’s.
Trump calls out Hillary on her “bad experience” and says she talks but doesn’t get anything done. Hillary says his statements have been debunked and talks highly about her 30 years of experience. This debate is getting dirty…more interruptions and burns.
Next segment: Fitness to be president.
Trump says he doesn’t know the women who have accused him of groping. He “thinks they want fame” or that Hillary’s “campaign did it.”
“America is great, because America is good.” – Clinton
That’s who Donald is but it’s up to us to stand up and be clear who we want our next President. –Hillary Clinton
Trump calls Clinton’s campaign “very sleazy,” then turns to Clinton’s emails.
Clinton says Trump has “A pattern of decisiveness.”
Topic now: The Clinton Foundation.
Trump calls it a “criminal enterprise.”
Up next is The Clinton Foundation….Hillary gives a brief description of the foundation and then the debate gets heated…both candidates were trying to talk at the same time. The crowd looks at each other and shakes head.
A little background on both the Trump Foundation, and the Clinton Foundation.
“We use the money to put up the American Flag” Trump on his Foundation. Clinton chimes in and reminds the audience that he is the first Presidential candidate who hasn’t released his tax reforms.
“We have undocumented immigrants in this country that are paying more taxes than a billionaire.” — Clinton
“You should have changed the law when you were a United States Senator.” Trump to Clinton.
Trump talks about how he sat in his apartment in Trump tower in Las Vegas this afternoon watching attach adds and Hillary says “made out of Chinese steel.” Crowd explodes with laughter.
Now we more on to the claims of a “rigged” election.
Trump says he will “look at the results at the time,” will not say he will accept the results of the election today.
“She should never have been allowed to run for the presidency.” — why Trump thinks the election could be rigged.
Wallace asks if Trump will not follow the precedent of accepting the results of the election. Trump says he’ll let him know, and it will be a “surprise.” Clinton calls that “horrifying.”
Topic now: Foreign hot spots.
Clinton will not support putting troops on the ground in Iraq. Believes we need an “intelligence surge” here at home.
Trump— “Whatever happened to the element of surprise?” Says Patton and MacArthur are “spinning in their graves.”
Trump bringing back the “wrong, wrong, wrong” again.
“We went after Bin Laden when you were doing Celebrity Apprentice.” – Clinton
Bernie brought into the conversation, crowd claps!
Syrian refugees are “not probably, definitely” a Trojan horse, according to Trump.
Trump says our country is “so outplayed.” And calls our leadership “stupid.”
LAST TOPIC! National debt.
Trump says business-people need to negotiate trade deals, not “political hacks.”
Trump plans on creating an “economic machine” that hasn’t been seen for decades.
Clinton says her plan pays for every penny, does not add to the national debt. Also says that the wealthy and corporations will pay more.
Trump calls Clinton “Such a nasty woman.”
Wallace gives them closing statements- they were not originally allotted this. Calls it a “new mini-segment.”
