WASHINGTON – Republican Donald Trump, reeling from a scandal that has threatened to consume his presidential campaign, clashed bitterly with his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton on Sunday night in a debate that dealt with Trump’s treatment of women, new WikiLeaks revelations about Clinton, the war in Syria, immigration policy and more.
The tense, sometimes brutal exchange at Washington University in St. Louis saw Clinton call Trump unfit for office and accuse him of perpetuating a “racist lie” about where President Barack Obama was born, while Trump repeatedly threatened to jail Clinton if elected and declared that she “has tremendous hate in her heart.”
The town hall forum quickly addressed the 11-year-old “Access Hollywood” videotape that surfaced in the media on Friday showing Trump bragging about kissing and groping women without their consent. Clinton suggested Trump’s comments should disqualify him from serving in the White House.
