The second of three 2016 Presidential Debates was held at Washington University in St. Louis, Missouri on Sunday, October 9, 2016. The 90-minute debate was aired on all the major television stations and streamed online. When the Republican candidate Donald Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton walked on stage, they didn't even shake hands. However, they did at the end of the debate. They did the customary handshake at the beginning of the debate at Hofstra University in Hempstead, New York on September 26. 

Trump's body language

Hillary Clinton did not do it to him, but while she was speaking, the Republican nominee paced the floor, loomed over her and gripped the back of his chair as if he was so disgusted to be in the same room with her.

Those who watched the debate couldn't help but notice his body language. People on social media mocked him for his rude behavior. A person commented on social media about the way Trump paced around the stage as if he was stalking his running mate. He circled her to demonstrate his dominance. While speaking, he snorted as bulls do when getting ready to attack. 

Viewers not only listened to the candidates' words, but they watched their body language also.

Trump's body language was described as bizarre and insulting as he paced back and forth and literally stood close behind Clinton at times. On the other hand, Clinton sat during most of the time when Trump was speaking. At other times, she stood patiently on her side of the room. Body language experts agree that Trump's body language and facial expressions were not fitting of one who is seeking to become the highest official in the United States.

Trump's facial expressions

Most people have probably seen the chart of faces illustrating how a person is feeling. The facial expressions of Donald Trump could make up an entire chart without any pleasant faces included.

Throughout the debate, his non-verbal communication said a lot. His face showed disgust, anger, bitterness, sarcasm and other negative expressions. Most of the time, his smile was turned upside down. He raised his eyebrows, and his face was in a scowl indicating that he disapproved of almost everything his opponent said. Remember, during the primaries he made a negative comment about Carly Fiorina's face.

Critics are now talking about Trump's face during the second debate.
