RT America special post-debate coverage
Much is on the line for Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton in what was widely anticipated to be the biggest American political event in modern election history. The two presidential candidates debated one-on-one for the first time, in a commercial-free, 90-minute contest centered around the top issues of 2016. For more on this, RT America hosts Ed Schultz and Anya Parampil are joined by John Nichols, Washington correspondent for The Nation magazine, and radio host Michael Medved to discuss the topic of trade and how effectively the candidates are wooing voters in the Rust Belt states. Then, Schultz and Parampil are joined by Democratic strategist Bud Jackson and Ian Walters, communications director for the Conservative Union, to discuss issues of temperament, transparency and debate performance.
