Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton go head-to-head Monday night in the first presidential debate, which is anticipated to be one of the most-watched political events ever.
NBC Nightly News anchor Lester Holt will moderate the event starting at 8 p.m. at Hofstra University in New York. The debate will be divided into three 30-minute segments on three topics: the Direction of America, Achieving Prosperity and Securing America.
Beyond that, Presidential Debates co-chairman Frank Fahrenkopf tells NPR he doesn't know what to expect from the debates.
"It's clear that there's no love between them," he says. "And how they will present themselves to the American people is anyone's guess."
