HEMPSTEAD, N.Y. (CN) - Adam Klasfeld of Courthouse News is providing updates from the first debate of the 2016 race for the White House live from Hofstra University in New York.
(CN) - Moderator Lester Holt asked Republican Donald Trump what he meant when he said Hillary Clinton didn't have the "look" of a president.
Trump immediately pivoted, saying "I don't think she has the stamina to be president."
"You have so many things you have to be able to do [as president] and I don't think you have the stamina to do it," he said, fixing his gaze on Clinton.
"When Donald Trump travels to 112 countries, negotiates a peace deal, a cease fire, the release of dissidents, or even spends 11 hours testifying before a congressional committee, then he can talk to be about stamina," she said in response.
Trump tried to hit back, saying "Hillary has experience, but it's bad experience ... and this country can't afford another four years of that kind of experience."
Clinton then brought the exchange back to Holt's original question - about Trump's comments about her "looks."
"He's called women pigs, slobs, and dogs ... and he is someone who has said pregnancy is an inconvenience to employers ... he said to woman in a beauty contest ... he called her 'Miss Piggy' and 'Miss Housekeeper,' because she is Latino ..."
Trump complained that Clinton has been running "$200 million in negative advertisements against me ... and it's not nice and I don't deserve that."
Holt concluded the debate, by reminding the candidates that in the end, only one of them will win. He asked whether if they would accept the outcome as the will of the people if the vote goes against them in November.
"I will support the outcome of this election ... [because] this election is really about you ... it's not about us," Clinton said, looking directly into the camera. "It is about you, your family, and the future you want."
As for Trump, he said the country is "seriously troubled," and "I want to make America great again."
That said, "if she wins, I will absolutely support her," he allowed.
(CN) - Hillary Clinton said defeating the Islamic State group and taking out its leaders would be a top priority as president.
To follow through, she said she would do everything possible to take out the group's leaders, and make that one of her administration's organizing principles when dealing with the Islamic State.
At the same time, she said one keys to fighting terrorism in the United States is working closely with Muslims living here.
Clinton said Donald Trump has "consistently insulted Muslims abroad, Muslims at home."
(CN) - Hillary Clinton slammed Donald Trump over the "birther" issue, accusing him of starting his political career "by claiming President Barack Obama was born outside the United States.
Clinton condemned Trump for spreading a "racist lie" that our "first black president" was not an American citizen.
Clinton added, "He has a long record of engaging in racist behavior." She said the so-called "birther" issue was a lie, and "a very hurtful one."
Clinton called Obama a man of dignity and said the issue "bothered and annoyed him."
