Full Transcript: Final 2016 Presidential Debate Donald Trump vs Hillary Clinton

Chris Wallace: Mr. Trump…

Donald Trump: Nobody has more respect for women than I do. Nobody. Nobody has more respect…

Chris Wallace: Please, everybody.

Donald Trump: And frankly, those stories have been largely debunked. And I really want to just talk about something slightly different.

She mentions this, which is all fiction, all fictionalized, probably or possibly started by her and her very sleazy campaign. But I will tell you what isn’t fictionalized are her e-mails, where she destroyed 33,000 e-mails criminally, criminally, after getting a subpoena from the United States Congress.

What happened to the FBI, I don’t know. We have a great general, four-star general, today you read it in all of the papers, going to potentially serve five years in jail for lying to the FBI. One lie. She’s lied hundreds of times to the people, to Congress, and to the FBI. He’s going to probably go to jail. This is a four-star general. And she gets away with it, and she can run for the presidency of the United States? That’s really what you should be talking about, not fiction, where somebody wants fame or where they come out of her crooked campaign.

Chris Wallace: Secretary Clinton?

Hillary Clinton: Well, every time Donald is pushed on something which is obviously uncomfortable, like what these women are saying, he immediately goes to denying responsibility. And it’s not just about women. He never apologizes or says he’s sorry for anything. So we know what he has said and what he’s done to women. But he also went after a disabled reporter, mocked and mimicked him on national television.

Donald Trump: Wrong.

Hillary Clinton: He went after Mr. and Mrs. Khan, the parents of a young man who died serving our country, a Gold Star family, because of their religion. He went after John McCain, a prisoner of war, said he prefers “people who aren’t captured.” He went after a federal judge, born in Indiana, but who Donald said couldn’t be trusted to try the fraud and racketeering case against Trump University because his parents were Mexican.

So it’s not one thing. This is a pattern, a pattern of divisiveness, of a very dark and in many ways dangerous vision of our country, where he incites violence, where he applauds people who are pushing and pulling and punching at his rallies. That is not who America is. And I hope that as we move in the last weeks of this campaign, more and more people will understand what’s at stake in this election. It really does come down to what kind of country we are going to have.

Donald Trump: So sad when she talks about violence at my rallies, and she caused the violence. It’s on tape.

Chris Wallace: During the last…

Donald Trump: The other things are false, but honestly, I’d love to talk about getting rid of ISIS, and I’d love to talk about other things…

Chris Wallace: OK.

Donald Trump:… but those other charges, as she knows, are false.

Chris Wallace: In this bucket about fitness to be president, there’s been a lot of developments over the last 10 days since the last debate. I’d like to ask you about them. These are questions that the American people have.

Secretary Clinton, during your 2009 Senate confirmation hearing, you promised to avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest with your dealing with the Clinton Foundation while you were secretary of state, but e-mails show that donors got special access to you. Those seeking grants for Haiti relief were considered separately from non-donors, and some of those donors got contracts, government contracts, taxpayer money. Can you really say that you kept your pledge to that Senate committee? And why isn’t what happened and what went on between you and the Clinton Foundation, why isn’t it what Mr. Trump calls pay to play?

Hillary Clinton: Well, everything I did as secretary of state was in furtherance of our country’s interests and our values. The State Department has said that. I think that’s been proven. But I am happy, in fact I’m thrilled to talk about the Clinton Foundation, because it is a world-renowned charity and I am so proud of the work that it does. You know, I could talk for the rest of the debate — I know I don’t have the time to do that.

But just briefly, the Clinton Foundation made it possible for 11 million people around the world with HIV-AIDS to afford treatment, and that’s about half of all the people in the world who are getting treatment. In partnership with the American Health Association…

Chris Wallace: Secretary Clinton…

Hillary Clinton:… we have made environments in schools healthier for kids, including healthier lunches…

Chris Wallace: Secretary Clinton, respectfully, this is — this is an open discussion.

Hillary Clinton: Well, it is an open discussion. And you…

Chris Wallace: And the specific question went to pay for play. Do you want to talk about that?

Hillary Clinton: Well, but there is no — but there is no evidence — but there is…

Donald Trump: I think that it’s been very well…

Chris Wallace: Let’s ask Mr. Trump.

Hillary Clinton: There is a lot of evidence about the very good work…

Donald Trump: It’s been very well studied.

Hillary Clinton:… and the high rankings…

Chris Wallace: Please let me Mr. Trump speak.

Donald Trump:… and it’s a criminal enterprise, and so many people know it.

Chris Wallace: Please let Mr. Trump speak.

Donald Trump: It’s a criminal enterprise. Saudi Arabia giving $25 million, Qatar, all of these countries. You talk about women and women’s rights? So these are people that push gays off business — off buildings. These are people that kill women and treat women horribly. And yet you take their money.

So I’d like to ask you right now, why don’t you give back the money that you’ve taken from certain countries that treat certain groups of people so horribly? Why don’t you give back the money? I think it would be a great gesture. Because she takes a tremendous amount of money. And you take a look at the people of Haiti. I was at a little Haiti the other day in Florida. And I want to tell you, they hate the Clintons, because what’s happened in Haiti with the Clinton Foundation is a disgrace. And you know it, and they know it, and everybody knows it.

Chris Wallace: Secretary Clinton?

Hillary Clinton: Well, very quickly, we at the Clinton Foundation spend 90% — 90% of all the money that is donated on behalf of programs of people around the world and in our own country. I’m very proud of that. We have the highest rating from the watchdogs that follow foundations. And I’d be happy to compare what we do with the Trump Foundation, which took money from other people and bought a six-foot portrait of Donald. I mean, who does that? It just was astonishing.

But when it comes to Haiti, Haiti is the poorest country in our hemisphere. The earthquake and the hurricanes, it has devastated Haiti. Bill and I have been involved in trying to help Haiti for many years. The Clinton Foundation raised $30 million to help Haiti after the catastrophic earthquake and all of the terrible problems that people there had. We have done things to help small businesses, agriculture, and so much else. And we’re going to keep working to help Haiti…

Chris Wallace: All right.

Hillary Clinton:… because it’s an important part of the American experience.

Donald Trump: They don’t want you to help them anymore. I’d like to mention one thing. Trump Foundation, small foundation. People contribute, I contribute. The money goes 100% — 100% goes to different charities, including a lot of military. I don’t get anything. I don’t buy boats. I don’t buy planes. What happens — the money goes to them.

Chris Wallace: Wasn’t some of the money used to settle your lawsuits, sir?
