2016 US Presidential Election: Trump Threatens to Jail Clinton if He Wins Plus Details of 2nd Presidential Debate

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump's second presidential debate ended on a high note, with both nominees saying one positive thing about the other and shaking hands - something they didn't do at the start of the debate in St. Louis. Both the recently-released 2005 video that captured Trump making lewd comments about women as well as new WikiLeak release of alleged emails that claim to contain excerpts of Clinton's paid speeches were discussed. 

The nominees went back-and-forth on the Syrian war and Russia's role, taxes, the Affordable Care Act, Trump's Muslim ban, and Clinton's emails, among other issues. A few times Trump suggested he wasn't being treated fairly by moderators Anderson Cooper and Martha Raddatz, who did occasionally chime in to stop interruptions and the nominees going over the allotted response time. The final presidential debate is Oct. 19 at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. - Stephanie

Meanwhile, former US President George W. Bush Press Secretary Ari Fleischer on Trump's threat to put Clinton in jail: 'Winning candidates don't' threaten to put opponents in jail. Presidents don't threaten prosecution of individuals' - @AriFleischer
