Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump faced off in the third presidential debate at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas, on Wednesday, October 19, in their final showdown before Election Day. And what a debate it was – watch the most talked-about moments in the video above!
While the Democratic presidential candidate, 68, faced some heat for allegations that the Clinton Foundation accepted foreign donations that created a conflict of interest for her as secretary of state, the business mogul, 70, raised eyebrows for his refusal to say that he will accept the election results and defended himself against multiple allegations of sexual misconduct. Clinton called Trump a “puppet” of Russia, while the Republican nominee referred to his rival as a “nasty woman.”
A CNN/ORC poll found that Clinton beat Trump by 13 points, 52 to 39. The debate, which many called Trump’s most composed performance, was still not enough to edge out the former secretary of state, who won by even wider margins in the previous two debates.

“That feeling when you win three straight debates. #DebateNight,” the former first lady captioned a photo of herself hugging her daughter, Chelsea Clinton.
On the other hand, Trump rounded up several polls that indicated he had won the debate on his Twitter account. “Just landed in Ohio. Thank you America — I am honored to win the final debate for our MOVEMENT. It is time to #DrainTheSwamp & #MAGA,” he posted alongside polls from Drudge Report, the Washington Times, @CSPAN, NJ.com and more outlets which favored him over Clinton.
