7 Debate Gaffes Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton Will Regret

1 hour ago

Both Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will have some regrets after their first presidential debate. But Clinton’s regrets mostly involve things she may wish others did differently — and Trump’s were of his own making. Trump made at least two very obvious factual errors. Clinton has also been second-guessed by fact-checkers — but you didn’t need to do much fact-checking to know Trump was very wrong when he said Clinton has been fighting Isis her entire adult life. Because Isis hasn’t existed for her entire adult life. Also Read: Hillary Clinton Wins First Presidential Debate, According to Twitter »

Hillary Clinton Wins First Presidential Debate, According to Twitter

2 hours ago

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton finally squared off in a debate on Monday night at Hofstra University, and Twitter seems to think that Clinton was victorious.

Trump was fact-checked numerous times by various media organizations throughout the 90-minute event, specifically being called out for claiming Clinton has fought Isis her entire life and denying that he once said China started global warming. »
