Fact Checking The Final Clinton-Trump Debate

October 18, 2016

Like the first debate, which garnered a record audience, this debate had a single-moderator and was divided into six segments of 15 minutes each. The second debate delivered on the fireworks many were expecting, while the third started out subdued before the candidates once again starting verbally sparring. Chris Wallace of Fox News Sunday was the moderator, asking questions on topics such as immigration, the economy, fitness to be president and the Supreme Court.

NPR's politics team, with help from reporters and editors who cover national security, immigration, business, foreign policy and more, will be live annotating the debate. Portions of the debate with added analysis are highlighted, followed by context and fact check from NPR reporters and editors.
