These Are The Best Moments From The First Presidential Debate

"You know what else I prepared for? I prepared to be president."

The first presidential debate between Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican nominee Donald Trump was one of the most highly anticipated political events of the year.

Monday’s debate at Hofstra University in New York had its share of ups and downs. Whether it was Trump slamming Clinton on trade, or Clinton branding Trump’s birther comments as “a racist lie,” the debate is sure to go down in the history books.

Check out the debate highlights above.

Editor’s note: Donald Trump regularly incites political violence and is a serial liar, rampant xenophobe, racist, misogynist and birther who has repeatedly pledged to ban all Muslims — 1.6 billion members of an entire religion — from entering the U.S.
