FACT CHECK: Clinton And Trump Debate For The 2nd Time

By NPR Staff | NPR
Sunday, October 9, 2016

Presidential candidates Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton debated Sunday night in their second official matchup.

It was the first debate since audio surfaced of Trump making vulgar comments about women, causing more than two dozen in GOP leadership to defect from the candidate.

NPR's politics team, with help from reporters and editors across the newsroom, live annotated the debate. Portions of the debate with added analysis are underlined in yellow, followed by context and fact checks.

Note: The transcript was updated throughout the debate. While we are working to correct errors, it may contain some discrepancies and typographical errors.
