DONALD TRUMP WAS ASKED FOUR HIT QUESTIONS WHILE HILLARY CLINTON WAS ASKED ZERO

Trump Hit Questions (Four) :

  • Question LESTER HOLT: Mr. Trump, we're talking about the burden that American's have to fay, yet you have not released your tax returns and the reason nominees have released their returns for decades is so voters will know if their potential president owes money to, who he owes it to and any business conflicts. Don't American's have a right to know if there are any conflicts of interest?
  • Question LESTER HOLT: The IRS says an audit of your taxes -- you're perfectly free to release your taxes during an audit. so the question, does the public's right to know outweigh your personal -
  • Question LESTER HOLT: Mr. Trump, for five years, you perpetuated a false claim of the nation's first black President was not a natural born citizen. You questioned his legitimacy. In the last couple of weeks you acknowledge what most Americans have accepted for years, the president was born in the United States. Can you tell us what took you so long?
  • Question LESTER HOLT: Mr. Trump, this year Secretary Clinton became the first woman nominated for president by a major party. Earlier this month you said she doesn't have, 'a presidential look.' She's standing here right now. What did you mean by that?

Clinton Hit Questions (Zero) :

  • N/A

Neutral Questions (Nine) :

  • Question LESTER HOLT: So, let's begin. We're calling this opening segment achieving prosperity and central to that is jobs. There are two economic realities in America today. There's been a record six straight years of job growth and new census numbers show incomes have increased at a record rate after years of stagnation. However, income inequality remains significant and nearly half of Americans are living paycheck to paycheck. Beginning with you, Secretary Clinton, why are you a better choice than your opponent to create the kinds of jobs that will put more money into the pockets of American workers?
  • Question LESTER HOLT: Let me follow-up with Mr. Trump if I can. You talked about creating 25 million jobs and promised to bring back millions of jobs for Americans. How are you going to bring back the industries that have left this country for cheaper labor overseas? How specifically are you going to tell American manufacturers that you have to come back?
  • Question LESTER HOLT: Back to the question, though, how do you bring back, specifically bring back jobs? American manufacturers. How do you make them bring the jobs back?
  • Question LESTER HOLT: You are unpacking a lot here. We're still on the issue of achieving prosperity. And I want to talk about taxes. The fundamental difference between the two of you concerns the wealthy. Secretary Clinton, you're calling for a tax increase on the wealthiest American's. I'd like you to further defend that. Mr. Trump, you're calling for tax cuts for the wealthy. I'd like you to defend that. The next two-minute answer goes to you, Mr. Trump.
  • Question LESTER HOLT: We're well behind schedule, so I want to move to our next segment. We move into our next segment talking about America's direction. Let's start by talking about race. A share of American's who say race relations are bad in this country is the highest it's been in decades. Much of it amplified by shootings of African-Americans by police. As we've seen recently in charlotte and Tulsa. Race has been a big issue in this campaign, and one of you is going to have to bridge a very wide and bitter gap. So how do you heal the divide? Secretary Clinton, you get two minutes on this.
  • Question LESTER HOLT: Secretary Clinton, last week you said we've got do everything possible to improve policing to go right at implicit bias. Do you believe that police are implicitly biased against black people?
  • Question LESTER HOLT: Our next segment is called securing America. We want to start with a 21st century war happening every day in this country. Our institutions are under cyber attack. And our secrets are being stolen. so my question is, who's behind it and how do we fight it? Secretary Clinton, this answer goes to you.
  • Question LESTER HOLT: Which leads to my next question as we enter our last segment, on the subject of securing America. On nuclear weapons, President Obama reportedly considered changing the nation's longstanding policy on first use. Do you support the current policy? Mr. Trump, you have two minutes on that.
  • Question LESTER HOLT: "One of you -- one of you will not win this election. So my final question to you tonight; Are you willing to accept the outcome as the will of the voters? Secretary Clinton?"
