With about three weeks until Election Day, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton will meet in the last presidential debate on Wednesday, Oct. 19, at the University of Nevada — Las Vegas.
The last presidential debate, which begins at 9pm ET, will be moderated by FOX News’ Chris Wallace and will run 90 minutes. It will follow a format just like the first debate: It will be divided into six time segments of approximately 15 minutes each on major topics to be selected by the moderator and announced at least one week before the debate. The moderator will open each segment with a question, after which each candidate will have two minutes to respond. Candidates will then have an opportunity to respond to each other. The moderator will use the balance of the time in the segment for a deeper discussion of the topic.
Wallace has announced the topics of this last presidential debate as debt and entitlements; immigration; economy; Supreme Court; foreign hot spots; and fitness to be president.
Again, there will be many places to tune in and watch, if only to see what Saturday Night Live will be poking fun at in a few days.
