US presidential debate: Trump says he may reject election result, Hillary calls remark horrifying

With only 20 nights before the November 8 election, the third and final presidential debate between Republican Donald Trump and Democrat Hillary Clinton concluded on Wednesday in Las vegas. Moderated by Fox News journalist Chris Wallace, the 90-minute long debate saw some sharp verbal attacks and counter-attacks between Clinton and Trump.
While both the Presidential candidates failed to answer some questions, particularly about the national debt, their final face-off was more staunch and sharp than the previous two. Speaking on his signature issue- immigration- Republican front-runner Donald Trump suggested that US needs to have strong borders. Hillary, on the other hand, accused Trump of being a hypocrite as he used undocumented labor to build the Trump Tower.
Trump: We have to have strong borders.We have
some bad hombres.
Clinton: Trump is a hypocrite.He used undocumented labor to build the Trump Tower. Battling sharply over the influence of Vladimir Putin, while Trump claimed that Putin had repeatedly outsmarted Clinton, Hillary accused Trump to be Putin’s puppet.
Trump: He said nice things about me. He has no respect for her, he has no respect for our president and I’ll tell you what, we’re in very serious trouble. Hillary: He’d rather believe Vladimir Putin than the military and civilian intelligence officials that are sworn to protect us.
Talking about Syrian refugees and defeating ISIS, while Clinton appeared confident to deal with refugees and defeat ISIS, Trump predicted security crises if Hillary were elected. Trump: Assad (Syrian president) is much smarter than Hilary and Obama. We made Assad powerful. We are giving him lots of money. If Assad falls, you may have something worst. Assad is a bad guy. Hillary (Clinton) has made tens of thousands of refugees who are in our country now. Thanks a lot for this Hilary. Syrian refugees … these are going to be the great Trojan Horse. Hillary: No fly zone in Aleppo will save many lives. There are millions who have become refugees within Syria. We can strike a deal and make it clear to Russia and Syria. I will not shut the door on women and children. The picture of 4-year-old bleeding is haunting. We will defeat ISIS.
While Trump accused that donors of Clinton foundation kill women and gays, Clinton claimed that her foundation has done everything in the country’s interest.
Hillary: “Everything I did is for our country’s interest. I am happy to talk about the Clinton foundation. The Foundation made it possible for 11 million people to have AIDS recovery.
Trump: It’s (Clinton Foundation) a criminal enterprise. You talk about women’s guys.. You are funded by Saudi Arabia. Why didn’t you give back the money that you have taken from various countries? People hate the Clintons in Haiti. Clinton donors kills women and gays.
Hillary took a dig at Trump’s alleged indecent behavior towards women and said that ‘Trump never apologises for anything. However, Trump responded to Clinton stating that all the charges levelled against him are lies and fictitious. Hillary: We heard Donald (Trump) talking about what he did to women, and after that a number of women have come forward saying that’s exactly what he did. Donald Trump never apologises or says he’s sorry for anything.
Trump: Nobody has more respect for women than I do. I didn’t even apologies to my wife…because I didn’t do anything.
US ECONOMY: Talking about the future of the US economy Trump asserted that the economy is stagnant and the country needs to take jobs from Mexico and other places. Clinton on the other was very optimistic about US future economic progress and claimed to have the biggest jobs program since World War II. Trump: Her (Hillary Clinton) plan is going to raise taxes and double the taxes. She can say about tuitions. We are going to do help kids in tuition fees. Countries like Saudi Arabia have a lot of money.
We are protecting them, they have to pay up. I am a big fan of NATO, but they have to pay up. Our debt has doubled under (Barack) Obama.
We need to renegotiate NAFTA and trade
agreements. We are going to make great trade deals. We will get our jobs back from Mexico and other places. I met Indian delegates, they are growing at 8 per cent… Products are pouring in from China, Vietnam… We are growing right around the 1% level.
Hillary: I want us to have the biggest jobs program since World War II. We are going to have the wealthy pay their fair share. I also will not add a penny to the debt.
NO HANDSHAKE: Hillary and Trump walked to their podiums without shaking hands after being introduced at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas.
CLOSING COMMENTS: Hillary: We need everybody to help make our country what it should be. I have made the cause of children and families really my life’s work.
Trump: I will do more for African Americans and Latinos than she can do in 10 lifetimes. We are going to make America great again. Electing her will give you 4 more years of Obama.
ELECTION RESULTS: Trump refused to answer whether he is going to accept the results of the elections and said he would decide only on the November 8. Clinton to this responded that Trump’s answer was horryfying.
Trump: I will tell you at the time, I will keep you in suspense.
Hillary: Let’s be clear about what he is saying and what that means: He is denigrating, he is talking down our democracy and I for one am appalled that someone who is the nominee for one of our two major parties would take that position.
