(CN) - Courthouse News reporter Mike Heuer is reporting live from the third and final presidential candidate debate at the University of Las Vegas campus. As the often rancorous campaign approaches its final act, on Nov. 8, Wednesday night's debate appears to be Republican Donald Trump's last chance to salvage his campaign against Democrat Hillary Clinton, who is surging in the latest polls.
(AP) - Donald Trump once again denied that he supported the invasion of Iraq.
Trump said "Wrong" in Wednesday's final presidential debate when Hillary Clinton said he supported the invasion in 2002.
In reality, Trump offered lukewarm support for invading Iraq before the war began. He's repeatedly and erroneously claimed to have come out against the war before it started, telling Howard Stern in September 2002: "Yeah I guess so," when asked if he would back an invasion.
Clinton said in the debate that anyone questioning what Trump's position was could simply google it and find "dozens of sources" showing he was for it.
Clinton said," He has not told the truth on that position."
(AP) - Donald Trump characterized the Clinton Foundation is a "criminal enterprise" and called on Hillary Clinton to have the foundation return money it's received from countries with repressive human rights regimes.
There is no evidence the Clinton Foundation has broken any laws.
In contrast, Trump said his foundation is a benefit to society.
Trump was responding to attacks from Hillary Clinton over his foundation spending money on a portrait of himself. He said it is a small, personal foundation that he donates to.
The Washington Post has reported that Trump hasn't donated to his foundation for years. It also cited records showing Trump used foundation money to settle a legal dispute against his club, Mar-a-Lago.
Trump denied his foundation has done this.
(CN) - Trump refused, even when pressed by moderator Chris Wallace, to say he will accept the will of the people if he loses the election on November 8. "I will look at it and decide at the time," he said. "I will keep you in suspense."
Trump has argued that the national media is trying to rig the election. He is again stating without any evidence that "millions" of registered voters "shouldn't be registered."
And he suggests Clinton would be an illegitimate president because of her use of a private email server when secretary of state. He says she "never should have been allowed to run."
Hillary Clinton called Donald Trump's refusal to promise to accept results of the presidential election "horrifying."
She said Trump has a history of calling things rigged, including the Republican primary, the court system handling a case against Trump University and the Emmys.
Clinton says the U.S. has a tradition of accepting election outcomes, and any general election candidate must be expected to do that.
(CN) - Why would so many women from so many circumstances over so many years make up these stories that you sexually assaulted them? That was the question from Chris Wallace.
Trump claimed the stories had been largely debunked and that they were "totally false."
