Moderated by Fox News’ Chris Wallace, the third and final presidential debate took on the same format as the first. Held at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, the debate aired at 6 p.m. PT and cover topics including the economy, debt and “fitness to be president.”
Fox News, still building its brand back up from the ouster of Roger Ailes amid sexual harassment allegations again the former chairman, hosted its first general election presidential debate during a year of intense media scrutiny, even becoming embroiled in the campaign due to Trump’s feud with anchor Megyn Kelly.
Ahead of the debate, former New York City mayor and Trump surrogate Rudy Giuliani appeared on CNN with Dallas Mavericks owner and Clinton supporter Mark Cuban. The debate between the two “outspoken men” was introduced by CNN’s Erin Burnett as “perhaps the best debate you will see of the entire campaign.”
Giuliani quickly went after Clinton’s emails, while Cuban fired back: “Everything you’ve just said about Hillary Clinton is 100 percent incorrect,” kicking off the hyped showdown, which will continue at 9 p.m. ET.
When asked about the sexual assault allegations lodged against Trump, Giuliani said the accusers are using a script, “groping, groping, groping,” and spoke for Trump, saying “he believes it is untrue.” Calling the GOP nominee a “gentlemen” with women, he said Trump “is justifiably upset about the allegations against him.”
The debate aired live across major networks on CBS, NBC, ABC, Fox, PBS, Univision, CNBC, CNN, Fox News, MSNBC, C-SPAN and more. It also will live-stream across channels on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook.
