Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump’s ugly and acrimonious battle for the White House is now less than three weeks away, and tonight the U.S. presidential candidates take the stage for their final debate.
For Trump, the debate is perhaps his last opportunity to turn around a race that appears to be slipping away from him. His predatory comments about women and a flood of sexual assault accusations have deepened his unpopularity and limited his pathways to victory. Of late, the Republican candidate has been making accusations of a rigged election.
“They even want to try and rig the election at the polling booths where so many cities are corrupt…and voter fraud is all to common,” Trump told supporters on Tuesday.
U.S. President Barack Obama has taken issue with Trump’s latest complaint.
“There is no serious person out there who would suggest somehow that you could even rig America’s elections, in part because they’re so decentralized and the numbers of votes involved,” Obama explained outside the White House, “There’s no evidence that that has happened in the past or that there are instances where this will happen this time. And so, I’d advise Mr. Trump to stop whining and go make his case to get votes.”
Hillary Clinton takes the stage facing challenges of her own. While the electoral map currently leans in her favour, the Democrat is facing a new round of questions about her authenticity and trustworthiness, concerns that have trailed her throughout the campaign.
