Presidential Candidates Return to Campaign Trail Following Heated Debate

The second presidential debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump was packed with controversy that has everybody talking.

The town hall-style event featured questions from audience members as well as moderators.

It didn’t take long for both candidates to attack one another about the issues plaguing their campaigns.

Trump interrupted Clinton several times about her private email server scandal, and at one point commented that if elected, he would appoint a special prosecutor to look into her deleted emails.

But Clinton drove the conversation straight to Trump’s taxes and to no one’s surprise, his leaked audio clip.

The video was released Friday showing Donald Trump using vulgar language toward women back in 2005.

Though Trump addressed the issue quickly, he tried to steer the question away and toward Clinton’s family, stating, "You can say it any way you want to say it, but Bill Clinton was abusive to women. Hillary Clinton attacked those same women. If you look at Bill Clinton, far worse. Mine were words. His were actions."

Clinton struck back, stating, "When I hear something like that, I am reminded of what my friend, Michelle Obama, advised us all: when they go low, you go high…Look, if this were just about one video, maybe what he’s saying tonight would be understandable. But everyone can draw their own conclusions, at this point, about whether or not the man in the video or the man on the stage respects women."

While the candidates started off attacking each other, the audience asked questions about more substantial issues including healthcare and Muslim-American relations.

Both are back on the campaign trail Monday morning.

Trump is headed to Pennsylvania and Clinton will make a stop here in Michigan in Detroit.
