The two candidates for the White House to meet Sunday evening for a second televised debate from Washington University in St. Louis (Missouri), where they will face a panel of undecided voters.
It is at 20h (3h Paris time) that the two candidates for the White House will gather for their second debate. During this major event, broadcast by most major US media, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will not only answer questions from two moderators, but also those of undecided voters chosen by the Gallup Poll. Both opponents will each have two minutes to answer them, then another to continue the exchange.
For Donald Trump, the second debate in less than a month from the presidential could be summarized in an attempt to calm the storm he himself caused. In question, a video filmed by NBC television in 2005 when billionaire exhibited his drag techniques, close sexual harassment. ” When you’re a star, they let you do it. You can do anything , “he explained in very vulgar terms.
Despite a video tour of disaster in the night from Friday to Saturday where Donald Trump apologize, figures of the Republican Party have already announced that they would not vote for him. This is the case of John McCain and Mitt Romney, two former candidates for the White House, the former Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice or the former California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. The Republican chairman of the House of Representatives has meanwhile said ” disgusted “. Even Mike Pence, the running mate of Donald Trump, has distanced.
Some observers announce it already finished. ” Trump will not lose any votes in his electoral base, they do not care, tempers Larry Sabato, a political scientist at the University of Virginia, told Agence France-Presse. But it will fail to expand its base of support. “the Republican candidate, he refuses to throw in the towel, thus silence the rumors that suggested abandonment. ” Never, I never give up ,” he has announced. It even seems prepared its response by targeting Bill Clinton, guilty of past extramarital affairs. Yesterday, Donald Trump has retweeted a message from a woman who claimed in 1999 that she was raped 21 years ago by President Clinton.
If Hillary Clinton addresses the debate tonight in better shape, its position is not the most comfortable. The Democratic candidate would have to answer for about allegedly held in 2013 and 2014 before large banks. In excerpts of these speeches just published by WikiLeaks, Hillary Clinton said to dream of a common market based on free trade and believes that the financial industry is better able to regulate itself.
If the authenticity of the extracts was neither reversed nor confirmed by his campaign team, content contrasts with the official position of the Democratic candidate for the White House. Thrust on the left during the primaries, she recently took a stand against the vast commercial free trade treaty between the United States and eleven countries in the Pacific region. These new WikiLeaks revelations will not help convince young voters that she tries to seduce since the abandonment of Bernie Sanders.
The first debate on September 26, was attended by 84 million people and had resulted in the opinion of observers, with a victory of Hillary Clinton. The latest revelations are likely to make it this evening uncomfortable for both sidelined presidential candidates.
