Republican Donald Trump was kept on the defensive at the first presidential debate, in several instances having to debate the highly anticipated event's moderator as well as his Democratic opponent.

Trump was challenged on his answers Monday night at Hofstra University in New York at least six times by NBC's Lester Holt, according to the Washington Examiner's count. Hillary Clinton, meanwhile was no follow-up questions for the 90-minute debate.

The debate was separated into three segments: "Achieving Prosperity," "America's Direction" and "Securing America."

Michael Moore appeared frustrated on Twitter following the presidential debate, saying Donald Trump “won” and “we all lost.”

The 62-year-old filmmaker warned “pro-Hillary gloaters” against celebrating over how Hillary Clinton did in the debate against the Republican nominee and insisted nothing she did changed things.

“Pro-Hillary gloaters doing end-zone dance again when still on 50-yd line,” Moore tweeted. “You must get it in your head Trump is gonna win and act accordingly!”

The Donald Trump campaign apparently keeps track of how often journalists tweet negatively about the Republican presidential nominee by printing out their 140-character posts and categorizing the sentiments therein.

“There are people who cover our campaign who actually just slander our candidate on Twitter,” Trump campaign manager Kellyanne Conway said on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Monday. “Ninety-two percent of one of them — I have them all on my desk. We printed them all out. Ninety-two percent of at least two of our embeds’ tweets are negative towards Donald Trump. Why are they on our campaign plane? Why are they covering our campaign if they can’t say, ‘Hey, look at this crowd of — look at the RSVPs of 32,000 people in Fort Myers, Fla., last Monday, and the place only held 8,500’? ‘Hey, look at the rise in the polls.’ They haven’t done any of the polling stories that you’re covering responsibly on your show. So, you know, excuse the Trump campaign if we feel like we can’t get a fair shake from certain people.”

On Saturday morning in Haverhill, horns were blaring and engines were revving as residents rallied behind homeowner Rick Early, who has put up more Donald Trump signs than the city allows. Early, along with many of his friends, are standing their ground.

“It’s just a show of support. A lot of people want to support what we are doing and don’t like what the city is doing,” Early said.

The city has an ordinance prohibiting political signs that total more than 32 square feet of space. Early’s signs add up to more than 300 square feet.

Egypt MPs who were in New York last week said they were impressed by US presidential candidate Donald Trump's views on terrorism and the Muslim Brotherhood


An Egyptian parliamentary delegation who visited New York last week to rally support for Egypt's political and economic reforms told reporters that Donald Trump would be a "good friend" of Egypt in comparison with Hillary Clinton.

The 20-member delegation, comprising a mix of opposition and pro-government MPs, participated in the 71th round of UN General Assembly (UNGA) meetings and also joined Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah El-Sisi who was in New York to deliver a speech before the UNGA on 20 September

Sen. Ted Cruz is endorsing Donald Trump's presidential campaign, the latest chapter in a rocky relationship between the two men that has ricocheted from fawning expressions of support to searing personal insults to, now, a kind of detente.

In a Facebook message posted Friday, Cruz said he has had "areas of significant disagreement" with Trump but cannot allow Hillary Clinton to become president.

"After many months of careful consideration, of prayer and searching my own conscience, I have decided that on Election Day, I will vote for the Republican nominee, Donald Trump," Cruz said, noting he is honoring a commitment he made to endorse the Republican nominee - something he stepped back from earlier this year.

Not since a surge in the polls at the end of the Republican National Convention two months ago has Donald Trump been this close to winning the White House. But Trump has less margin for error than his Democratic rival, as his lead over Hillary Clinton in a number of swing states is slim.

According to the CBC's Presidential Poll Tracker, Clinton is currently averaging 44.7 per cent support among decided voters, compared with 42.8 per cent for Trump. The edge Clinton continues to hold over Trump has diminished rapidly - standing at well over six points in August and a little more than three points two weeks ago. That lead now sits at just 1.9 points.

Donald Trump says recent attacks in three states should be "a wake-up call for every American."
The Republican presidential contender made the comment in a statement released Monday. He warned that terrorists are rooting for Hillary Clinton to win the presidency so "they can continue their savagery and murder."

The campaign of Donald J. Trump, whose grass-roots organizing in Florida is far behind that of conventional presidential nominees, promised $1.9 million for a ground game in the state but has yet to come through with the money, less than five weeks before early voting begins.

Warning that there is “no time to waste,” Susan Wiles, Mr. Trump’s Florida state director, wrote in an internal email on Sunday that the campaign’s New York leaders gave a “green light” to begin spending a seven-figure sum for a field program to get out the vote. On Monday, Ms. Wiles said the money was being delayed.
