    Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump will make their third appearances on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” in the week preceding the first presidential debate of the general election.

    Trump’s appearance on “The Tonight Show” is scheduled for Sept. 15, and Clinton’s for Sept. 19.

    Last week, the Democratic and Republican presidential nominees appeared on NBC’s Commander in Chief forum, hosted by Matt Lauer. The two rivals appeared separately at the forum, answering questions and talking issues of national security and the military. 

    The upcoming debate, to be moderated by NBC News anchor Lester Holt, is set for Sept. 26. It will be the first time Trump and Clinton publicly go head-to-head on policy.

    Speaking at a rally in Ohio on Oct. 20, 2016, Donald Trump said that he would accept the presidential election results if they were in his favor. "I would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters and to all the people of the United Staes that I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election -- if I win,” Donald Trump said, emphasizing the last three words by pointing into the crowd. The rally was held the day following the final debate, during which the issue of whether he would accept the election results came up. At the debate, he said he would have to wait and see what the results were. (Published Thursday, Oct. 20, 2016)

    The question-and-answer style debate is scheduled for 90 minutes, beginning at 9 p.m. Eastern time.
