Monday’s US presidential debate, a combat of titans pitting the Democrat Hillary Clinton against the Republican Donald Trump, is sure to be a major moment in the campaign, with just six weeks left before the November 8 election.

This first of three debates will give the candidates a chance to introduce themselves -- or re-introduce themselves -- to skeptical American voters who will be watching closely for the slightest misstep, awkward gesture or fatal altercation.

The debate could break all records for a US political audience, given the sharply contrasting personalities -- and positions -- of Trump and Clinton.
