Did Donald Trump’s anger lead him to blow away opportunity at presidential debate
As the US Presidential Elections 2016 dawns on November 8th . The much talked about debate between the two Presidential hopefuls – Democrat Hillary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump generated lost of interest as they clashed in the first ever direct face to – face debate .
The former first lady and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton came out with her aggressive stance on host of issues and dispelled persistent health rumours. As she spoke during the debate she effectively conveyed the image that she was a Presidential candidate with a mission and and was able to portray Trump as virtual outsider . This was sea change in the face-off between Hillary and Trump. This was quite unlike the scenario in Republican primary debates.
Trump who had in the past mustered his art to wriggle out of tricky situations and wrest control over the conversation was not able to re- create this attribute of his here . It left him in angry mood and disturbed his rhythm . Thereby rattling his debate body language. This was in sharp contrast to the image of his rival Hillary , who most of time she was calm and in control.
During the debate Trump said some things about trade and jobs that probably resonated with blue-collar voters in Pennsylvania,
Through out the debate tried to be present himself as smart and competent, or not offensive. But When it came to the real issues confronting the nation – Clinton was more straight and talked about policies, and plans such as how she would fight Islamic State ( that has become a menace around the world) if voted to power . On the other hand the flamboyant Donald Trump used the stage and cited his temperament as his strongest asset and offered few specifics. Thus effectively let the grand opportunity slip away and quite possibly his shot at high profile Presidency .
