The third Presidential Debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump begins on Wednesday night at 9:00 P.M. EST and ends around 10:30 P.M. EST. In addition to being the third time that Senator Clinton and Mr. Trump meet on the debate floor, this Wednesday will also likely be the last time that they’re in the same room before the Election Day. This time, the debate will be hosted in Las Vegas, NV, meaning that attendees will at least have some options to bleach their eyes and ears of the vitriol they’ll most likely see and hear from Clinton and Trump. The rest of us, though, watching at home, won’t have the same luxury.

The third Presidential Debate will be in the same format as the first debate, in that a moderator will pose six questions to the two candidates and give them two minutes each to speak. Since each topic has a loose time of 15 minutes, the moderator will allow the additional time to get deeper into the question.

What Questions Will Be Asked?

According to sources, the six questions that will be asked are about: debt & entitlements, immigration, the economy, Supreme Court nominees, foreign hot spots, and fitness to be the president.
