Clinton, Trump gear-up for Presidential debate
In what could rank as one of the most watched and highly anticipated showdowns, Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton are both gearing-up to face each other for the first time in a presidential debate.
The 90-minute discuss which is the first of three planned presidential debates will take place at 9 p.m. (0100 GMT on Tuesday) at Hofstra University on New York’s Long Island.
Both Trump and Clinton will be hoping to use the debate to erase some of those lingering voter doubts and address campaign-trail weaknesses with polls showing they are the least liked White House candidates in modern history.
The size of the audience is expected to challenge the presidential debate record of 80 million who watched the 1980 encounter between Democratic President Jimmy Carter and Republican Ronald Reagan.
