SYLHET :: Democrat Hillary Clinton accused Republican Donald Trump of racism, sexism and tax avoidance on Monday, putting him on the defensive during a 2016 US presidential debate rife with blistering insults and short on policy.
An estimated 90 million people were expected to watch the Democratic and Republican candidates go toe-to-toe for 90 minutes starting at 9:00 pm (7:00am Tuesday in Bangladesh Standard Time) on the stage at Hofstra University in New York.
A CNN/ORC snap poll said 62 per cent of respondents felt Clinton won and 27 per cent believed Trump was the winner.
Clinton, 68, enters the fray as a polished former secretary of state and ex-senator, who after almost 40 years of public service is steeped in the issues.
Trump, a 70-year-old billionaire and former reality TV star, is good on his feet, and unpredictable-more comfortable in the limelight than on issues.
