Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump warred over the women, Obamacare, emails, tax provisions, Syria, Russia and energy policies at the second presidential debate in Missouri on Sunday (Eastern time). Both the candidates were better prepared than the previous debate. Trump blamed Hillary Clinton’s “bad judgement” for Syria and her other policies and called her a liar for the most part of the debate. He also said that she was “talk” and “words” and no work. Hillary Clinton fought against all his accusations with facts and references to her 30 years of public service.

Hillary Clinton said that Donald Trump did not have the written discipline to be the president. She also said that many citizens were afraid of his presidency with people fearing they would have to leave the country if he comes to power.

Citizen questions were about rampant Islamaphobia, energy policies and tax provisions.

The second presidential debate became extremely crucial in light of the 2005 tapes of Donald Trump where he is heard making lewd comments on women. Many Republicans, former and currently elected withdrew support for Trump. The candidate, however, remained defiant and said he would not quit the presidential race.
