“If you (Hillary Clinton) become president, this country is going to be in some mess,” Trump said.
“If you go with what Hillary is saying, you can take the baby and rip the baby out of the womb of the mother just prior to the birth of the baby,” Trump said, speaking on abortion.

“We can not take four more years of Barack Obama and that’s what you get when you get her,” Trump concluded.
“Every time Donald thinks things are not going in his direction he claims, whatever it is is rigged against him… there was a even a time when Trump didn’t get an Emmy for his TV programme three years in a row and he started tweeting that the Emmys were rigged,” Hillary said on Trump’s claims of election rigging. Trump replied, “Should have gotten it.”
“I don’t want to rip families apart. I don’t want to be sending parents away from children,” Hillary said on immigration.

On abortion: “I do not think the United States government should be stepping in and making those most personal of decisions,” Clinton says.
“Donald has bought Chinese steel and aluminium. In fact, the Trump Hotel right here in Las Vegas was made with Chinese steel.
