Tonight was the second debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Clinton had a lot of sharp-witted jabs to say as she faced off in the presidential debate.

Read on for Clinton’s top best quotes from the first presidential debate of 2016. We will update this post as the debate continues.

“If we overcome the divisiveness that sometimes sets Americans against each other… there’s nothing, in my opinion, that America can’t do.”

“With prior Republican nominees for president, I disagreed with them… But i never questioned their fitness to serve. Donald Trump is different. What we all saw and heard on Friday was Donald talking about women, what he thinks about women, what he does to women… I think it’s clear to anyone … that it represents exactly who he is, because we’ve seen this throughout the campaign.”

“I want to send a message … to every boy and girl… that America is … great because we are good. … We will celebrate our diversity. These are very important values to me. ”

“When I hear something like that, I am reminded of what … Michelle Obama advised us all. When they go low, you go high…”

“It’s awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump isn’t in charge of the country.”

“After a year long investigation there’s no evidence that anyone hacked the server I was using … or any classified materials ended up in the wrong hands.”

“OK Donald, I know you’re into big diversion tonight… Let us please focus on some of the issues.”

“I will not let anyone into our country that I think poses a risk to us… There are children suffering in this catastrophic war, largely I believe because of Russian aggression, and we need to do our part. We are by no means carrying the load that Europe and others are. ”

“He (Trump) lives in an alternative reality.”

“Since the Great Recession, the gains have all gone to the top and we need to reverse that.”

“Look, he has now said repeatedly 30 years this and 30 years that… Eight million kids every year have health insurance… Hundreds of thousands of kids now have a chance to be adopted… 400 pieces of legislation have my name on it as a sponsor or co-sponsor when I was a Senator for 8 years.”

“Russia has decided it’s all in for Syria… And they’ve also decided who they want to be President of the United States and it’s not me.”

“I have tried my entire life to do what I can to support children and families… Donald talks a lot about the 30 years I’ve been in public service. I’m proud of that.”

“My argument is not with his supporters, it’s with him… and the inciting of violence at his rallies… And the brutal kinds of comments about … all kinds of Americans.”

“We are now for the first time ever, energy independent. … We’ve got to remain energy independent, it gives us much more power and freedom than to be worried about what goes on in the Middle East. I have a comprehensive energy police, but it really does include fighting climate change… I think we can be the 21st century clean energy superpower and create millions of new jobs and businesses, but I also want to be sure that we don’t leave people behind.”

“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. … As a mother and a grandmother, that’s very important to me.”

“I believe this election has become in part so conflict oriented, so intense, because there’s a lot at stake. This is not an ordinary time and this is not an ordinary election.”
