ST. LOUIS (NewsRadio 1020 KDKA/AP) – It was an unleashing of a barrage of attacks. In last night’s presidential debate in St. Louis, Donald Trump repeatedly called Hillary Clinton a “liar” and the “devil” and said Clinton has a “tremendous hate in her heart.”
Clinton said that Donald Trump’s vulgar comments about women reveal “exactly who he is” and show he’s unsuitable to be president.
Trump fired back, accusing his Democratic rival of attacking women involved in her husband’s extramarital affairs.
Trump promised that Hillary Clinton would “be in jail” if he were president.
University of Pittsburgh political professor and expert in presidential rhetoric Dr. Jerry Shuster tells the “KDKA Morning News” he thinks Trump, “Probably came out of [the debate] a lot better than some people expected that he might.”
Dr. Shuster says Trump did a better job Sunday night at getting to Clinton.
“Unfortunately, he allowed his temperament and his cattiness to lose that checkmate position he managed to achieve,” he said.
