During the third presidential debate at the University of Nevada in Las Vegas,
Donald Trump opened up a variety of issues to expose the controversies surrounding Hillary Clinton and her supporters.
These included President Barack Obama and her involvement in inciting riots in Trump’s campaign rallies,
the leaked emails revealed by WikiLeaks and the controversies of the Clinton Foundation.
Campaign Rally Riots
During the debate, Trump revealed that Clinton and Obama agreed to pay people $1,500 to disrupt his campaign rallies by acting violently and picking fights with his supporters.
One of the instances that he brought up was the riot that erupted during his campaign rally in Chicago, according to Politico.
“I was wondering, what happened with my rally in Chicago and other rallies where we had such violent,” he said.
“She’s the one, and Obama, who caused the violent. They hired people. They paid them $1,500, and they’re on tape saying be violent, cause fights, do bad things.”

The claims that Trump made against Clinton and Obama at the debate were backed by findings of a year-long investigation on the matter.
In a video posted on YouTube by Project Veritas Action, Scott Foval,
a Democratic operative and former national field director for the Americans United for Change,
admitted that he was tasked with hiring mentally imbalanced and homeless individuals to attend Trump’s rallies with
the purpose of inciting riots and getting into confrontations with the presidential candidate’s supporters.
“They’re not starting confrontations in the rally,” Foval said in the video.
“Because once they’re inside the rally, they’re under Secret Service control. When they’re outside the rally, the media will cover it no matter where it happens.”
“The key is initiating the conflict by having leading conversations with people who are naturally psychotic,” he continued.
Leaked Emails and Open Trade
Aside from the riots, another issue that emerged during the debate was the revelations made by WikiLeaks during the past few weeks.
One of the emails leaked from Clinton’s camp featured her private speech to a Brazilian bank.
In her speech, she noted that she aims to develop a common market with free borders and open trade under her administration,
a concept that has been heavily criticized because it mainly favors major financial institutions.
In an attempt to explain the matter, Clinton explained that she was talking about trading energy resources with other countries.
Based on Clinton’s response, it seems she was only referring to energy as an
example of how an open trade would work, which means her vision for a common market could still include other types of resources.
The Clinton Foundation
Trump also grilled Clinton regarding her family’s foundation, a non-profit organization that she and her husband established in 1997.
According to Trump, the foundation has been accepting donations from countries that have poor human rights records.
Despite knowing this, Clinton still refused to return the money.
“It’s a criminal enterprise,” he said according to Fortune.
“Saudi Arabia is giving $25 million, Qatar, all these countries. You talk about women and women’s rights? These are people that push gays off of buildings.”
