Trump and Hillary Clinton clash over ISIS, tax returns and 'temperament' in first live US Presidential debate


Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton clashed over the fight against Isis, paying tax and "temperament" in their first head-to-head debate in the race to the White House.
The US presidential candidates squared off in a 90-minute debate at Hofstra University in New York, which was screened to tens of millions of television viewers in America and live-streamed across the world.

During a number of fiery exchanges, Mr Trump claimed he had a "better temperament" than Mrs Clinton and accused his Democrat rival of not having the "stamina" to be president.

"This is a man who has called women pigs, slobs and dogs," Mrs Clinton said.
Discussing the fight against Isis, Mr Trump attacked Mrs Clinton for revealing her plan to tackle the extremist group on her website.
"You're telling the enemy everything you want to do. No wonder you've been fighting Isis your entire life," the billionaire tycoon said.

The pair also addressed Mr Trump's refusal to release his tax returns, with Mr Trump insisting they were under a "routine audit".
But the Republican said he would release his tax returns against his lawyers' advice if Mrs Clinton releases 33,000 deleted emails from her private server.
His comments prompted cheers from sections of the audience, with moderator Lester Holt having to remind those watching to remain quiet.

Mrs Clinton said her use of a private email server was a "mistake" and claimed Mr Trump could be refusing to release his tax returns because he was not as rich or as charitable as he claimed.
She said: "I think probably he's not that enthusiastic having the rest of our country see what the real reasons are because it must be something really important, even terrible, he's trying to hide."
After Mr Trump claimed Mrs Clinton had described the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal as "the gold standard", she replied: "Donald I know you live in your own reality but that is not accurate".

Police on Long Island said about 2,000 protesters gathered outside the debate, including Hardhats for Hillary, socialists and activists calling for a living wage. Nassau County police said 24 people have been arrested on mostly disorderly conduct charges.
Mr Trump and Mrs Clinton will square off for two more debates next month, while their running mates, Tim Kaine and Mike Pence, are set to meet next week.
