Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump faced off on Monday in the first of three presidential debates before election day on November 8.
Despite featuring two of the least liked candidates in modern history, the 90-minute debate was expected to draw in a record number of viewers across multiple networks, including NBC, CNN, and Fox.
Monday night’s showdown, moderated by NBC’s Lester Holt from Hofstra University in Long Island, was divided into six 15-minute segments, though the segments often went over the time allotment.
The topics were “America’s Direction” (the state of the union), “Achieving Prosperity” (the economy), and “Securing America” (national security and foreign policy).
