The Horse Race political team sounds off on the final Trump Clinton presidential debate in Sin City, Las Vegas. Join the team for in-depth discussion about bad hombres, Putin puppets, rigged elections and more. All here in Episode 12.
|Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump squared off Wednesday night at the University of Nevada in Sin City, Las Vegas for the 3rd and final presidential debate. Moderated by Fox News anchor Chris Wallace, the presidential candidates tackled pertinent issues, including gun control, Roe v. Wade, immigration, free trade, the economy, taxes, ISIS, emails, inappropriate groping, bad hombres, and Putin puppets. And of course, this:
Chris Wallace: But, sir, there is a tradition in this country — in fact, one of the prides of this country — is the peaceful transition of power and that no matter how hard-fought a campaign is, that at the end of the campaign that the loser concedes to the winner. Not saying that you’re necessarily going to be the loser or the winner, but that the loser concedes to the winner and that the country comes together in part for the good of the country. Are you saying you’re not prepared now to commit to that principle?
Donald Trump: What I’m saying is that I will tell you at the time. I’ll keep you in suspense. OK?
