After 90 minutes of non-stop insults and contentious back and forth between the candidates, one town hall participant asked them to wrap things on a friendlier note.

“Would either of you name one positive thing that you respect in one another?” the town hall participant said.

Clinton responded, “I certainly will because I think that’s a very fair and important question. Look, I respect his children. His children are incredibly able and devoted, and I think that says a lot about Donald. I don’t agree with nearly anything else he says or does, but I do respect that. And I think that is something, that as a mother and grandmother, is very important to me.”

“Well I consider her statement about my children to be a very nice compliment. I don’t know if it was meant to be a compliment. I am very proud of my children. And they have done a wonderful job and they have been wonderful, wonderful kids, so I consider that a compliment. I will say this about Hillary: She doesn’t quit. She doesn’t give up. I respect that. I tell it like it is. She’s a fighter. I disagree with much of what she’s fighting for. I do disagree with her judgement in many cases. But, she does fight hard and she doesn’t quit and doesn’t give up — and I consider that a good trait,” Trump said.

The night ended with a tepid handshake that was missing at the outset before the rivals retreated to the embrace of their families to lick their wounds.
