What question would you ask Trump or Clinton in the debates?

    Was just looking over the pre-selected topics for the first presidential debate. There are 3, and they are vague:

    America's Direction
    Achieving Prosperity
    Securing America

    Way it will work is there will be 6 15-minute segments, with 2 segments a piece going toward each of the 3 main themes. The moderator will then ask questions under the umbrella of.. the candidates' 4 year game plan, how to make America more well off (I suppose, economy talk), and finally war stuff, border walls, immigration, etc.

    I suppose those topics make sense. We don't know what the moderator will specifically ask. Got me thinking, if I was the moderator, or I had the opportunity to ask both candidates a single question, what would it be?

    I need to think on this. But I am curious --- What would you ask Trump and/or Clinton, if you could ask a question during the debate?

    One question.. hmmm.. how about: Will you sign a legal document that says you will get impeached if you fail to deliver (or turn your back) on your campaign promises? Something like that. Needs lawyery re-wording. But you get the idea.

    I'm far more curious to see how the debate moderator and general press question and judge Donald Trump. Will he get off the hook for saying anything he wants regardless of the facts or will he actually be held accountable if he starts speaking non truths?

    I understand the moderator likely won't fact-check Trump, but I do hope the media doesn't give him a free pass and judge him the winner just because he was able to stand up there for 90 minutes.

    It is infuriating to see the different standards the media in general has with Clinton v Trump. And the voting public in general. Perhaps we will see that change tonight.

    I agree, but I'm not really holding my breath. Ratings have seemed to become far more important than making sure there is an informed public and if anything is true it's that Donald Trump gives these organizations the highest ratings they have had in years.
