In back-to-back interviews with NBC’s Matt Lauer at the Intrepid Sea, Air & Space Museum in Manhattan Wednesday night, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump each tried to present themselves as the candidate with the best judgement to be Commander in Chief.

They answered questions on the Iraq War, ISIS, Libya and veteran’s issues.

Here & Now‘s Jeremy Hobson talks with Here & Now security analyst Jim Walsh about the forum, and whether it revealed anything new or substantive about how Clinton or Trump would handle national security issues as president.
