HAMPSTEAD, NY. -- Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump faced off Monday evening in the first presidential debate.  

The 90 minutes of non-stop debating took place at Hofstra University and was moderated by Lester Holt of "NBC Nightly News."

Both candidates concluded the debate by saying they will accept the outcome if the other wins.

Hillary Clinton spoke directly to viewers and said, "It's not about us, it's about you."
 
Donald Trump initially dodged the same question, saying he would make a "seriously troubled" America "great again." He added: "I'm going to be able to do it. I don't believe Hillary Clinton will."
 
But Trump finished his answer by saying that if Clinton wins, "I will absolutely support her."
