Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump had their first presidential debate at Hofstra University Monday night in Hempstead, New York.

She listed a series of controversial moments from Trump's campaign, including his fight with a Muslim Gold Star family, criticism of a federal US judge of Mexican heritage and his insinuation that Obama wasn't born in the US. Apart from that she spoke out of her well-preparedness opposed to the Trump’s temperament.

Donald Trump interrupted Hillary Clinton 51 times (25 times in the first 26 minutes of the debate), whereas Clinton had interrupted Trump just 17 times, according to Vox.

The quotes:

Trump: "I think my strongest asset by far is my temperament. I have a winning temperament. She doesn’t have the stamina."
Clinton: "As soon as he travels to 107 countries and negotiates, a peace deal a seasefire, he can tell me about stamina."

Trump: "I think my strongest asset by far is my temperament. I have a winning temperament."
Clinton: "You know what else I prepared for? I prepared to be president."

Clinton: "This is a man who has calling women pigs, slobs and dogs and someone who has said pregnancy is an inconvenience to employers, who has said that women don't deserve equal pay unless they do as good a job as men. Maybe he is not as charitable as he claims to be... Maybe he doesn't want the American people to know that he has paid nothing in federal taxes."
Trump: "That makes me smart."

Clinton: "I had a feeling by the end of this evening that I'd be blamed for everything."
Trump: "Why not?"
