Local Expert Weighs in on Presidential Debate


A main concern people have for Monday’s debate is Donald Trumps temperament.  Hillary Clinton has been preparing in the traditional way for the 90 minutes of back and forth, while Trump’s campaign says he has not prepared at all.

At least 100-million Americans are expected to watch the presidential debate to see Clinton and Trump duke it out.  Not only is this expected to be one of the highest watched TV programs in American history, but the eyes of the world are expected to be on Hofstra University.

Former national debate champion Christopher Regan says there’s one main thing Trump advisers are likely saying to their GOP candidate right now:  “Donald Trump, just behave!”

“If he just behaves normally for 90 minutes he is probably going to convince a lot of people that he’s not so crazy as some want to lead folks to believe,” Regan said. “That the image painted of him in the media isn’t right. So he is going to try, if he wants to follow advice, to behave and Hillary Clinton has to try to agitate him, so he becomes more of the wild card that we see on TV.”

Regan adds that if Trump starts with the name-calling, the best thing Secretary Clinton can do is remain on track and keep talking about her plan for America.

The debate starts at 9 o’clock. You can catch it on either WTRF ABC Ohio Valley or WTRF CBS.
