MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump faced off in their second presidential debate Sunday night and it didn’t take long for the sparks to start flying.

The town hall-style event featured questions from audience members as well as the moderators.

Clinton and Trump did not shake hands at the start of their second presidential debate. The frosty tone continued as the two answered questions about the video released Friday on which Trump was heard using vulgar language about women.

“That was locker room talk. I am not proud of it,” said Trump.

Clinton had her say on the matter.

“I think it’s clear to anyone who heard it, it represents exactly who he is,” she said.

Trump then brought up sexual misconduct allegations made against Clinton’s husband, Former President Bill Clinton.

“He was impeached. He lost his license to practice law. He paid $825,000 fine to one of those women – Paula Jones who’s here with us tonight,” said Trump.

Clinton responded with, “I am reminded about what my friend Michelle Obama advised us all – when they go low, you go high.”

Trump said if elected he’d appoint a special prosecutor to look into Clinton’s deleted emails.

“You should be ashamed of yourself,” said Trump.

Clinton came back with, “anything to avoid talking about your campaign and how it’s exploding.”

Both candidates sparred over Trump’s taxes.

“People like Donald who pay 0 in taxes for vets for health education, that is wrong,” said Clinton.

Trump said he used a $916 million loss to avoid paying personal taxes.

“Of course I do! Of course, I do! And so do all of her donors or most of her donors,” said Trump.

While the candidates started off attacking each other, the audience asked questions about more substantive issues including healthcare and Muslim-American relations.

To close off the night, an audience member asked what the candidates respect about each other.

“His children are incredibly able, and they’re devoted,” said Clinton.

“She does fight hard and she doesn’t quit and she doesn’t give up,” said Trump.

As for the next match-up, their last debate is set for October 19th.
