Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump appeared back-to-back in an NBC "Commander-in-Chief forum", moderated by Matt Lauer, on Sept. 7, 2016, taking questions on foreign policy and military topics from the audience.

We re-arranged many of the candidate responses into a "debate" format, as if the two candidates had been on stage together. In fact, they were not, although sometimes they did respond to the other's comments(just a half-hour later).

The mainstream media billed this Forum as a precursor to the actual debates, beginning at the end of September.
