Donald Trump, who runs for presidenship,Â in his second debate with his opponent onÂ Sunday said that he wouldÂ to appoint a special prosecutor to go afterÂ Hillary Clinton for her use of a personal email account while she was secretary of state.
âI didnât think Iâd say this but Iâm going to say it, and I hate to say it, but if I win, I am going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation because there has never been so many lies, so much deception, there has never been anything like it and weâre going to have a special prosecutor,âÂ Trump said, referring to her emails.
The former First LadyÂ responded by reminding the audience ofÂ what the millionaire, who represents Republican party,Â was saying on her campaign website.
âWe have literally Trump, you can fact check him in real time. Last time, at the first debate, we had millions of people fact-checking. So I expect weâll have millions more fact-checking because, you know, it is, itâs just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country,â she said.
âBecause you would be in jail,â Trump repliedÂ to Clinton.
Still, during the debate the former TV starÂ had to defend himself after he was asked to address the recently leaked 2005 video which captured him bragging about groping women without their consent.
Trump apologized, saying he was âembarrassed by itâ, but brushed off as âlocker room talkâ the unguarded content that has sent dozens of Republican lawmakers fleeing from his candidacy.
âI have great respect for women. Nobody has more respect for women than I do,â Trump said.
Clinton responded that the leaked video revealed âwhat he thinks about women, what he does to womenâ.
âHe has said that the video doesnât represent who he is. But I think itâs clear to anyone who heard it that it represents exactly who he is,â Clinton said.
âWith prior Republican nominees for president, I disagreed with them. Politics, policies, principles âŚ but I never questioned their fitness to serve,â she added. âDonald Trump is different.â
However, a bit later when the candidates were asked to say one nice thing about each other Clinton complimented Trumpâs children, whileÂ Trump effusively praised Clintonâs indefatigable spirit.
âI will say this about Hillary. She doesnât quit. She doesnât give up. I respect that. I tell it like it is: She is a fighter. I disagree with much of what sheâs fighting for. I do disagree with her judgment in many cases, but she does fight hard and she doesnât quit and she doesnât give up, and I consider that to be a very good trait,â he said.
