Final US Presidential Debate in Las Vegas

World Today


Las Vegas is perhaps the most fitting place to hold the third and final U.S. Presidential debate. Most people arrive here thinking they are going to win, but leave having lost. And after this debate there will be only one winner and they hope that momentum will take them all the way to the White House.

CCTV America’s Nathan King reports.

The previous two debates have been pretty negative about other countries, and about each other. But after Donald Trump was caught on video making lewd comments about women, it got even nastier.

Several women have made allegations of impropriety against Trump. His defense has been offense, going after Clinton about her deleted private emails and threatening a prosecution if he is elected.

Most polls show Hillary Clinton with a solid lead, while Trump said he thinks the election is being rigged.

This final debate may be Trump’s last chance to stop Clinton’s newfound momentum. With tens of millions of Americans set to watch the stakes could not be higher.
