how to watch presedential debate online

The US presidential debates for the upcoming elections officially started on 26 September 2016, with Donald Trump being the sad disappointment that he is while Hillary Clinton sparkled on stage. While trump argued & demanded Hillary to check facts, Hillary was prepared taking charge every time trump threw dirt on her … but being honest, she didn’t really have her facts in check either.

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton have much to discuss following a poor first debate including geo-political scenarios, US immigration policy, stance on terrorism, gun violence legislation, racism & xenophobia, failing economic conditions and much more. Surely you wouldn’t want to miss out on Hillary’s perseverance and Trump’s shenanigans.
