Bill Clinton & Melania Trump Avoid Each Other at Final Presidential Debate, Clintons Fear Another Trump 'Stunt'

Former President Bill Clinton and Melania Trump did not shake hands before the Final Presidential Debate on Wednesday night (October 19) in Las Vegas.

The spouses of the presidential candidates – Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump – have shaken hands and greeted each other at the past two debates.

According to the New York Times, Hillary‘s campaign was not impressed with Donald‘s plan to bring out three women who accused the former president of sexual assault and rape and force him to shake their hands during the previous debate on October 9.

The Commission of Presidential Debates intervened and did not allow the women to come in contact with Bill.

For tonight’s final debate, a new setup had the presidential candidates’ families enter the hall closer to their seats – without crossing paths – to avoid any potential confrontations or “dramatic stunts” from the Trump campaign.

When Hillary and Donald entered the stage for tonight’s debate, they walked straight to their podiums, without shaking hands.
