    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.

As she tried to make this point, the crowd erupted into singing her "Happy Birthday." Clinton turns 69 on Oct. 26. (Published Wednesday, Oct. 26, 2016)

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