The second presidential debate took place Sunday on the campus of Washington University in St. Louis.

Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton squared off in town hall debate, which was a more intimate setting. They answered questions from the audience and questions selected from social media by the moderators. The second question of the night focused on Trump’s comments about a woman from 11 years ago that many call “vulgar” and “lewd”.

Trump then touched on the 33,000 emails he says Hillary erased. It was quite a while before the candidates got around to talking about their platforms. Hillary says she will fix Obamacare, Trump says he’ll repeal it. Trump says he will lower taxes, Hillary says she will make the wealthy pay their fair share.

And they also touched on refugees from Syria. Clinton says she will not let anyone in the country who means to do us harm; meanwhile, Trump accuses her of wanting to grant amnesty to everyone.

If you missed the first two debates, there will be a third opportunity to catch the candidates face off for the final time at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas on Oct. 19.
