USA Election: Campaigns Take Decisive Turn

The two candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump clashed again in the second of the three televised debates on Sunday.


Electors to vote the new President of the United States of America on November 8, 2016 are almost certain on their choices after the second televised debate at Saint Louis on Sunday, October 9, 2016 between the Republican party nominee Donald Trump and his Democratic party rival Hillary Clinton.

The debate was the occasion for the candidates to launch ferocious attacks on each other on pertinent issues. Donald Trump responded to an outcry over his remarks about groping women by launching an attack against Hillary Clinton and her husband. He denied ever sexually assaulting women. Referring to former President Bill Clinton, he said, « There’s never been anybody in the history of politics that has been so abusive to women.” Hillary Clinton on her part, said the explosive video, which has sparked an exodus of Republicans denying support to their presidential nominee, Mr Trump « represents exactly who he is ».

Mr Trump said if he won, he would appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Mrs Clinton and she would be in prison over her private email arrangements. Hillary Clinton retorted that,

« Everything he just said is absolutely false but I’m not surprised. It’s just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in our country. »

The two candidates also clashed on issues related to the  conflict in Syria, Russian aggression, Trump’s refusal to release his tax returns and his plan for the « extreme vetting » of immigrants arriving from countries with links to terrorism, BBC said. Experts and keen observers of the upcoming American election in Cameroon have been expressing diverse opinions and doing analysis of the electoral process.
