dishing personal punches. >> donlald, i know you live in your own reality, but that is not the fact. >> but you have no plans. >> oh, i do. >> reporter: and hitting each other on the issues from taxes -- >> my tax cut is the biggest since ronald reagan. >> your plans would add $5 trillion to the debt. >> reporter: to stop and frisk. >> the argument is that it's a form of racial profiling. >> we have to take away guns that have them away from bad people that have them. >> stop and frisk was found to be unconstitutional, and in part, because it was ineffective. >> reporter: with one and five voters saying they could change their mind, but candidates trying hard to turn this tight race. >> i think donald trump criticized me for preparing for this debate, and, yes, i did. you know what else i prepared for? i prepared to be president. >> i agree. she's got experience. it's bad experience. this country can't affords to
have another four years of that kind of experience. >> reporter: and trump and clinton will meet for two more debates, next is the town hall in st. louis on october 9th. kendis and diane? >> what are the candidates saying now that the debate's over? >> reporter: they are both claiming victory. clinton went to a debate watch party after the debate ended, talking with supporters, and she said she felt good about the experience saying it was a great debate, and an amazing experience. after the debate, trump was asked whether he wished he would have prepared more, but he said no because i think we won, and he said he's very happy with the way things turned out. >> trump, ncin fact, was in the spin room where marcy is. did he happen to explain why he didn't bring up a key figure there, it was right there in the debate hall, bill clinton?
>> reporter: right. you know, after all of that talk about the possibility of gennifer flowers in the audience, there was speculation he was going to go after the former president with some of his past transgressions, but abc news asked trump about that here in the spin room, and he said he decided against those topics in the debate because clinton's daughter, chelsea, was there in the audience, but he's not ruled out bringing up those sort of things in later debates. kendis, diane? >> could get interesting. marcy gonzalez live for us, thank you. >> as we saw, it didn't take long for trump and clinton to come out swinging. >> how did each candidate fair? for more, let's go to rick cline, rick? >> reporter: in the first half of the debate, trump tush eturnd attacks back on her, broader
argument, about the status quo, making attacks on the political establishment. that was the good side of donald trump, the bad side later in the debate with a dispute with her, working for the office, and just generally speaking, you saw a candidate getting under the skin. i think hillary clinton was able to walk away from the debate saying i know where the weak spots are. donald trump, particularly shaky ground talking about the birther movement, talking about the past with the iraq war, a false claim, said he always opposed the iraq war. those are things that are played over and over again. two canadidates knowing how to prosecute the case, but nobody closing the deal. >> thanks to rick there. last night's faceoff set a new record. the most tweeted debate ever. >> third most tweeted moment was plans for defeating isis, and number two was trump's comments on stop and frisk, and most tweeted moment of the night?
when trump said he has good temperament. >> i should have taken temperament in the drinking game. one forced to leave campus before the debate got underway. stein did not have proper credentials to be there and took to twitter to get the message out. gary johnson failed to be part of the debate. >> johnson watched the debate from inside twitter's manhattan's headquarters on site all night making the case to be on case at the next debate writing neither the rhetoric of donald trump or hillary clinton can be the commander of chief i want. >> the miami marlins return to the field days after losing a pitcher. >> how the team honored jose fernandez, and the first batter of the night broke down in tears after hitting a home run. rescue at sea, a missing man

last night's first debate between donald trump and hillary clinton covered a lot of ground from jobs to terrorism plus her e-mails, his tax returns. >> there was a lot of things covered, and in this close race, were any minds changed? abc's political director joins us right now. just back from long island. okay, so good morning. it was a relatively small area, the debate hall, a thousand people there, and you are watching it right next door, what exchange got the most reaction? >> one of the moments the moderator had to turn to the audience to quiet them down, and donald trump said he would release his tax returns if hillary clinton released her 30,000 personal e-mails. his supporters in the crowd seemed to really like it. they got, you know, really loud, but this moment i think will come back to haunt him because you could see, and clinton,
seemed to forget the reason that he's been talking all along about why he's not releasing tax returns is because of that audit. he momentarily forgot that. >> lester holt saying so it's negotiateble? >> he said, no, but talk about the e-mails. he said against my attorney's advice, but i'll do it. a lot of back and forth over the e-mails. >> oh, there you go, he's turning around there to tell the audience to calm down a little bit. >> there were a few moments with the audience seemed to react, and not just at that one. what was it like to be in the hall? was it taboo or were we letting it slide? >> no, i mean, i think that every moderator knows that an audience is going to make noise, right? even though in the beginning, they say that they're not supposed to clap, you're not supposed to chapter for the person you support, but the moderator knows. that was the moment that was the loudest, but it was just one of a few. >> what were the individuals' strategies going into the debate, and watching it now, did
they step it up? >> hillary clinton came to fight, and you saw that. she had to. she prepared for both donald trumps. restrained donald trump that we see more recently on the campaign trail, and then that unpredictable one we saw for almost a year. she wanted to make sure she could debate that unpredictable trump out. e she got that on the issue of birther, treatment of women, and she got unpredictable trump tonight. >> what audience were they both trying to appeal to? we have a sense of who secretary clinton appealed to, and trump, who was he trying to appeal to? >> well, i think trump and clinton, too, trying to appeal to undecided voters, but they are not that many of them, so both trump and clinton were trying to play directly into their base. make sure they're excited. make sure they are enthusiastic so they vote in november. hillary clinton has had a problem with that, and said she
knows that her voters are less enthusiastic than his. she needs that bamaobama coalit to show up. >> she tried to bring out the unp unpredictable trump, but he did too. how did that play out last night? >> he did well when he tried to portray himself as a new choice for the country, saying over and over again that hillary clinton has been around for 30 years. i thought he did well in that he was skeuccessful, but that strategy went away by the end of the debate. >> he said in 30 years, what jobs have you created and hammered that. >> and kept going back to that on trade, economy, and jobs. you saw it in the second half of the debate when she gained steam. >> maybe overall, do you have either one moved the needle last night? >> it's an important question.
i think they both have a ways to go. i think you really need that big moment for them to move the needle. what kind of moment? donald trump needs a big apology. we did not see that tonight. hillary clinton needs to appear presidential and make trump seem up acceptable to voters. she's sort of that tonight, but still two more debates that's going to be the goal. >> all right. our political director, we'll see you from st. louis. >> definitely. >> thank you. coming up in the next half hour, fact checking candidates after a night of claims, counterclaims, and outright accusations. we'll sort out fact from fiction. >> first, authorities trying to figure out what happened in the mystery at sea. a young man rescued after eight days on the open water, but his mother is still missing. what we're learning now about the investigation. you're watching "world news now."

i'm david wright. >> clinton called trump's jobs plan a trumped up version of triple down economics, and he slammed her record on trade. >> yeah. the audience said it was supposed to be quiet and stay quiet, but they couldn't resist reacting to some of the candidates' more snapping zingers. we're in the spin room and have more. marcy, good morning. a talked about moment, i wrote it down here, hillary clinton said trump supported the war in iraq. >> reporter: right. this was a pretty lengthy exchange. trump insisted that he'd always oppose the war in iraq, but moderator, lester holt, pressed him on that saying the record didn't show that. there was a radio show with stern who asked trump if he supported the war, and that's when trump said, yeah, i guess so. so in the debate, trump said that was the first time he was asked about the iraq war saying he answered lightly, but
insisted every interview after that, he adamantly opposed the war. >> marcy, another big issue here is race, a discussion on black community, tensions with recent shootings, how did the candidates do on that issue? >> reporter: yeah. the issue definitely came up including some of the recent shootings that they didn't get into those specifics, but clinton said race is a significant challenge in this country. she said that we have to restore trust between the community and police, and then trump in his rebuttal said he was using words that he claims clinton won't use, and those words are law and order, of course, that's been a major theme of the trump campaign. >> that, indeed. she used it in one point in rebuttal of him.
