Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton squared off at the third and final debate at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Wednesday night. In one of the most extreme statements of the night, Donald Trump said he might not accept the results of the November election, instead saying, “I will keep you in suspense.” This comes as Trump is continuing to claim the election has been rigged. Throughout the debate, the two faced off on topics ranging from sexual assault to social security to Russia.
Donald Trump: “Look, Putin—”
Chris Wallace: “Wait, but—”
Donald Trump: “—from everything I see, has no respect for this person.”
Hillary Clinton: “Well, that’s because he’d rather have a puppet as president of the United States.”
Donald Trump: “No puppet. No puppet.”
Hillary Clinton: “And it’s pretty clear—”
Donald Trump: “You’re the puppet!”
Hillary Clinton: “It’s pretty clear you won’t admit—”
Donald Trump: “No, you’re the puppet.”
The debate frequently veered from political discussion into personal attacks.
Hillary Clinton: “That’s part of my commitment to raise taxes on the wealthy. My Social Security payroll contribution will go up, as will Donald’s, assuming he can’t figure out how to get out of it. But what we want to do is to replenish the Social Security Trust Fund—”
Donald Trump: “Such a nasty woman.”
That was Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump. We’ll air more excerpts from last night’s third and final presidential debate after headlines.
