The third 2016 Presidential Debate is now over but what I liked the most was the two Presidential nominees, #Hillary Clinton and #Donald Trump locking horns on the subject of immigration. Chris Wallace , the "FOX NEWS" anchor, rightly said to the candidates that "there is almost no issue that separates the two of you more than the issue of immigration." This is the first time where I really liked Senator Hillary Clinton hitting back at the Republican Party leader and roasting her rival Donald Trump whenever he called her a "liar."
On building walls - the immigration issue
Chris Wallace, the moderator, asked the two candidates if they were right or wrong about their immigration policies. Mr. Wallace argued that Trump wants to build a wall while Clinton had a "citizenship package" for the millions of undocumented immigrants.
Donald Trump interrupted by claiming that Hillary Clinton wanted to build a wall back in 2006. He said that the opposition leader "wanted the wall" and that Clinton had "fought for the wall."
The incumbent Republican Party leader and Presidential candidate Donald Trump took a direct hit at Mrs. Clinton by claiming further that she "never gets anything done" and "that's why the wall wasn't built." He kept interrupting Mrs. Clinton during the speech, as expected and desired by world media, by saying "The Wall" (the Senator was trying to use border security as a metaphor for Trump's wall.)
'He used undocumented labor to build the Trump Tower.' - Hillary Clinton
Hillary Clinton argued that Donald Trump built his empire on undocumented immigrant workers and that he was exploiting them by paying them less wages and threatened the illegal workers with deportation if they ever "complained." She also stated that bringing the illegal immigrants "out of the shadows" would do the American economy good.
"He used undocumented labor to build the Trump Tower," claimed Mrs. Clinton.
The open borders issue
When confronted about the issue of the 'open borders' by the moderator askiing if "that was her dream," Senator Hillary Clinton answered by saying that she was talking about the trade - energy - between the neighboring countries. Hearing the topic of 'open borders' brought up like that, Trump couldn't resist interrupting and cut-in abruptly to thank the moderator. "I was talking about energy," said Mrs. Clinton. "I do want an electric grid that crosses borders."
However, Mrs. Clinton ignored the issue altogether and started talking about the Russian espionage before Trump reminded everyone about the topic at hand. He ended the 'open borders' issue by saying that both "Clinton and Obama won't talk about stopping radical Islamic terrorism in this country."
Hillary Clinton on Russia's involvement in breaching the American security
When Russia's involvement into hacking the American websites and institutions came into the debate Trump totally denied his relationship with the Russian President Vladimir Putin by repeating "I don't know Putin." The Democratic Party leader and Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton blamed Donald Trump for "encouraging Russian espionage against Americans in the past."
"The Russian government has engaged in espionage against Americans. They have hacked American websites, American accounts of private people, of institutions," said the Senator. "Clearly from Putin himself as 17 of our intelligence agencies have confirmed, he wants to influence our election."
The most important question
The most important question, to quote Mrs. Clinton herself, was Donald Trump's own involvement in the Russian espionage on American cyber security. "Finally, will Donald Trump admit and condemn that the Russians are doing this?" asked the Senator. "And, make it clear that he will not have the help of Putin in this election. That he rejects Russian espionage against Americans which he actually encouraged in the past." #2016 Presidential Debates
