As the third presidential debate kicked off, the intentions were to focus on topics of immigration, economy, debt and entitlements and so on.

While these serious topics were needed to be discussed, there are other topics that seemed to immerse their way into this debate as they have in the others.

Here were the top five moments during the final debate:

1. Refusing to accept potential defeat?

Donald Trump is once again refusing to promise that he’d accept defeat on Election Day if Americans choose Hillary Clinton.

Trump said he’ll look at that at the time.

2. No handshakes

The debate began just the way it ended. Both candidates simply took place at their lecterns and avoided a handshake.

Wrapping up, the debate closed in the same manner. Clinton went on to give Chris Wallace, the moderator, a handshake and Trump stayed behind his lectern.

3. Trumps brings up the wall again

Trump again proposes his ideas on building a wall on the U.S. Mexico border.

“We have some bad hombres here,” Trump said about drug lords after asked about immigration laws.

4. Sexual allegations return

Donald Trump suggests that accusations of his inappropriate behavior with women over the years were started by Hillary Clinton and what he called “her sleazy campaign.”

“I didn’t even apologize to my wife, who is sitting right here, because I didn’t do anything.”

Clinton responded that when Trump is pushed on any major issue he immediately unleashed denials that are bullying and beside the point.

5. Rigged

“She should not be allowed to run and just in that respect I say it’s rigged,” Donald Trump said in regards to allegations of him saying the election process is rigged.

“Because she should not have been allowed to run for presidency based on what she did with emails and so many other things.”

Clinton said that Trump always claims something is rigged when he loses.

“The FBI conducted a yearlong investigation into my emails. They concluded there was no case. He said the FBI was rigged,” Clinton said in response.

Clinton goes on pointing out other cases where Trump has lost and then claimed rigging.

There has been no evidence the U.S. election system is rigged.
