ST. LOUIS, Missouri — It wouldn’t be Trumpian if there weren’t any fireworks.
Donald Trump, the 2016 GOP presidential nominee, crushed his Democratic opponent Hillary Rodham Clinton in Sunday evening’s debate at Washington University in St. Louis—propelling him closer to the White House and past, perhaps, the roughest stretch of his campaign yet.
“It was an absolute home run for Mr. Trump,” Jason Miller, Trump’s senior communications adviser, told Breitbart News in the spin room after the debate. “This was a game-changing victory. You know what? The underdog is back.”
Several key exchanges in the debate proved Trump to be the better candidate on Sunday night, the most important of which was when Trump forced out on his own with no help from moderators CNN’s Anderson Cooper and ABC News’ Martha Raddatz: when Trump said he would appoint a special and independent prosecutor to investigate the Clinton email scandal.
