The official first clash between Hillary Clinton and Donald J. Trump in the race to become the next US president came in form of a one on one debate last night.
The 90-minute debate was everything and more.
Rather than shifting the lines of the presidential race, the debate deepened them; bolstering Clinton’s advantage on questions of temperament and tolerance, and amplifying Trump’s blustery message of drastic change.
As expected, the debate is generating alot of reactions, questions and comments.
Below is what Americas and indeed the world is saying;
Donald Trump wasn't joking when he said his Deplorable's were taking over social media. Numbers don't lie, people do. Polls?#debatenight

Hillary Clinton belongs in the White House. Donald Trump belongs on my show.

Next time you stay at a Donald Trump hotel, show up and refuse to pay the bill because it wasn't good enough. He is ok w/ that! #pullatrump

Mr. Donald Trump wasn’t good enough to debate Hillary Clinton, he should learn some experience from her “in speech”. Good luck though.

Very, proud of our candidate – Donald Trump – he stayed with the issues even though crooked Hillary tried repeatedly to get him off issue

If you legitimately support Donald Trump, i'm gonna need you to block me from every existing social media. We can't hang

I hope Donald Trump knows that if he becomes president he has millions of Americans to answer to. He ain't gonna be the boss, the people are

I feel bad for feeling like this, But if Donald Trump died before the election, I'd consider it a blessing.

When Donald Trump says "everybody agrees" or "everbody knows" I think he's talking about all the voices in his head. #debatenight

You do not have to be a political analyst to see how unfit for office Donald Trump is and continues to be #MAGA

It's blows my mind that we are to choose between Hillary Clinton & Donald Trump to be the president of our country. Doesn't seem real.

Tonight we learned how President Hillary Clinton would handle a vulgar, unhinged dictator supported by all America's enemies. #debatenight

Hillary Clinton did tonight what 16 Republicans couldn't do. And she did it without breaking a sweat. #MadamPresident

Hillary Satan has the most ungodly horrific sounding voice in the history of old hags. #DebateNight

Favorite Moment: When Trump says "I also have a better temperment than she does", the entire audience, including GOP'rs giggle. #debatenight

Hillary was very race baiting and unpresidential tonight. Donald Trump was on message and presidential. #debatenight
