Democratic Nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican Nominee Donald Trump went face-to-face in the second of the three scheduled debates. The first debate was dominated fairly and squarely by Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton leading to her victory according to CNN poll while the second debate which lasted for around 90 minutes was a combination of insults and political jibes even though the final verdict over who performed better is yet to be put out.
Republican nominee Donald Trump, who finds himself mired in various controversies for his irresponsible and derogatory remarks about women, Hispanics, Latinos and Muslims seemed to be on the back-foot throughout his The Washington Post on Friday released a video that showed Donald Trump making lewd remarks about women. Trump's remarks triggered leaders' response from within the Republican Party as they continued mounting pressure on him to withdraw from the presidential race.
However, Donald Trump was quick to come out and apologise for his derogatory remarks, but the number of Republicans denouncing his candidacy reached 150, including his running mate Mike Pence.
While the first debate saw both candidates speaking from the Podium, the format for Monday's debate is "Town Hall" that requires stagecraft as the candidates move around the stage and take questions from the voters.
