Presidential nominees Donald Trump (R) and Hillary Clinton (D) debated a variety of economic and foreign policy topics in the first presidential debate of 2016, held at Hofstra University on New York’s Long Island. Moderator Lester Holt, the NBC Nightly News anchor, began with questions on jobs and the economy and worked though other topics including tax policy and national security. Mr. Trump focused much of his criticism on Secretary Clinton’s ties to other established politicians, while she emphasized the history of his businesses in the U.S. and abroad.

This was the first of three debates the candidates were scheduled to participate in. close
