Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton refused to shake hands at the beginning of the second presidential debate, then went mano a mano until the end, when a final town hall participant asked them to make nice. Asked if they might admire something, anything, about each other, both candidates came up with something, reports Politico. Their responses:
- Clinton: "I respect his children. His children are incredibly able and devoted and I think that says a lot about Donald. I don't agree with nearly anything else he says or does, but I do respect that and think that is something that as a mother and a grandmother is very important to me."
- Trump: "I will say this about Hillary. She doesn't quit. She doesn't give up. I respect that. She's a fighter. I disagree with much of what she's fighting for, I do disagree with her judgment in many cases. But she does fight hard, she doesn't quit, she doesn't give up, and I consider that to be a very good trait."
That must have thawed the candidates, because they shook hands at the end of the debate. (Read more presidential debate
