Presidential Town Hall Debate


After a memorable first debate, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are scheduled to meet again this weekend. A record number of viewers tuned into the first debate, and interest in their second meeting is likely to be just as high. Here are the event details:


Time: 9:00 p.m. EDT

Location: Washington University, St. Louis, Missouri

Moderator: Martha Raddatz from ABC News and Anderson Cooper from CNN

Unlike their first debate where the two candidates faced each other on stage, Sunday’s event will take place in a town hall format. They will take questions from the audience and moderators with two minutes to give their answers.

With questions coming from the audience, any number of subjects could come up for the candidates to address. While we don’t know for sure what will be discussed, there are some things that we are likely to hear about. Donald Trump’s tax returns were an area of controversy in the presidential and vice presidential debates that have already occurred, so they are almost certain to surface in this debate, too. It is likely that there will be discussions of the two candidates’ tax plans, as well as their differing views on foreign policy. Donald Trump has publicly mulled over bringing up issues surrounding Bill Clinton’s infidelities, and this would be an opportunity to see how Hillary responds.

There is also the matter of temperament and how candidates will perform. With many giving Clinton the edge in their first debate, Sunday night could be the place where Trump demonstrates whether his previous performance was a fluke or not.

Will you be tuning into the second debate? What are your expectations?
