Fort Lauderdale remote studio covering the latest in the post debate fallout between Secretary Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Our South Florida production studio welcomed Aveda King, the niece of iconic civil rights leader, Martin Luther King. Ms. King, an activist, Fox News contributor, and former state representative in the state of Georgia, discussed the much heated presidential debate between Secretary Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump on the Fox Business Channel. While Ms. King did not outright endorse either candidate by name, she spoke about the importance of asking for forgiveness and repenting for sins. She also spoke about the election in terms of the next POTUS nominating future Supreme Court Justices and how she is pro life.
The debate was very heated, with both Trump and Clinton attacking one another. Trump went after Hillary Clinton’s emails, President Bill Clinton’s alleged abuses of woman (also accusing Hillary Clinton of covering up those abuses and saying she threatened those very women). To add fuel to the fire, Trump held a “press conference” prior to the debate with three former Clinton sexual assault accusers and Kathy Shelton, a woman who was brutally raped when she was 12 years old and Hillary Clinton was the defense attorney who got her then client, Thomas Alfred Taylor, to plead to a lesser offense of “unlawful fondling of a child under 14.” Hillary Clinton, on the other hand, seized on the very damaging tape (released last Friday) that showed Trump speaking about women in very demeaning and insulting ways. This tape that surfaced just days before the debate, had quite a negative impact on the Trump campaign, as prominent GOP elected officials withdrew their support for their party’s nominee. Hillary Clinton also continued to press and attack Trump, for not releasing his taxes, claiming he was hiding something from the American public. (Note: The recent emails Trump referenced were the ones Wikileaks released from John Podesta, Chairman of the 2016 Hillary Clinton presidential campaign.)
This was the second of three presidential debates between Secretary Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. The next and last debate will take place Wednesday, October 19th at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. Clinton is currently leading Trump in national polls and key battleground states. The election will be held Tuesday, November 8th.
