Rewatch 3rd presidential debate (full video): Trump vs. Clinton replay

The three 90-minute presidential debates are officially over.

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump faced off for the last time Wednesday, October 19, at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas in a debate moderated by Fox News anchor Chris Wallace. The debate covered debt and entitlements, immigration, the economy, the Supreme Court, foreign hot spots, and "fitness to be president."

How did it end? Trump called Clinton a “nasty woman,” and Clinton echoed Bernie Sanders to call Trump “the most dangerous person to run for president in the modern history of America.” Early polls from after the debate showed Clinton victorious — although this early CNN/ORC poll tends to lean Democratic.

The stakes were high for both candidates Wednesday. After months of running on controversial positions on immigration, race relations, and foreign policy, Trump entered the third debate embroiled in multiple sexual assault allegations — about which he was asked — and trailing Clinton in the polls after two poor debate performances, a reality he seemed to ignore.

Having co-moderated the three Fox News Republican primary debates (two of which Trump attended), Wallace already had experience asking the Republican nominee tough questions on a debate stage (he even repeated that Trump’s budget proposals "don’t add up").

But this didn’t mean it was a cakewalk for Clinton either; she was asked to respond to the now-revealed transcripts from her Goldman Sachs speeches (released in the WikiLeaks’ trove of emails from her campaign chair John Podesta’s account), in which she said she dreamed of “open borders,” as well as her proposal to have a no-fly zone Syria.
