The second Clinton-Trump debate got off to a rocky start when the candidates refused to shake hands. Trump's campaign was in free fall when he entered the debate hall Oct. 9, reeling from the revelation of a 2005 video in which he spoke of women in lewd and sexually aggressive terms. The video sparked a dramatic rebuke of Trump, with dozens of Republicans in Washington and around the country saying the billionaire should quit the race. Trump glowered, interrupted, and prowled the stage at Washington University in St. Louis, calling Clinton a "devil" and "liar" with "hate in her heart." He also said that if elected president, he would have Clinton prosecuted and jailed.
