BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (WIAT) — It was a debate full of jabs.

One of the most standout moments of the night was when Republican Presidential nominee, Donald Trump, threatened to put Democratic Presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, in prison if he’s elected. This comment was in response to Clinton’s ongoing e-mail scandal that has rocked her campaign from the beginning.

“I am going to instruct my Attorney General to have a special prosecutor look into your situation,” said Trump.

During Sunday night’s debate, Clinton apologized to the American people. She said that using her personal e-mail was a mistake and that she takes full responsibility for what she did.

Another big highlight last night was the leaked video of Donald Trump making lewd comments about women. Trump responded during the debate by saying it was just ” locker room talk.”

“I apologize to my family; I apologize to the American people. Certainly not proud of it, but this is locker room talk,” said Trump.

Hillary Clinton quickly fired back.

“What we all saw and heard on Friday was Donald talking about women– what he thinks about women, what he does to women,” said Clinton.

Donald Trump quickly went on the defensive and attacked Hillary Clinton over her husband’s sexual misconduct.

It wasn’t until the second half of the debate that the candidates started focusing on policy issues, including, ISIS, tax plans and America’s war on drugs.
