In the first presidential debate of the upcoming US elections, Republican candidate Donald Trump aggressively tried to pin the nation’s economic and national security problems on Hillary Clinton, calling the former Senator and Secretary of State a “typical politician” incapable of delivering the change many Americans want.

But soon into Monday’s 90-minute showdown, Trump found himself on the defensive for much of the televised face-off. The candidates entered the debate locked in an exceedingly close race to become America’s 45th president, and while both had moments sure to enliven their core constituencies, it was unclear whether the event would dramatically change the trajectory of the race.

The debate was confrontational from the start, with Trump frequently trying to interrupt Clinton and speaking over her answers. Clinton was more measured and restrained, often smiling through his answers, well-aware of the television cameras capturing her reaction. The candidates sparred over trade, taxes and how to bring good-paying jobs back to the United States.

Here’s how the newspapers in the United States covered the first debate of the country’s arguably most historic, convulsive and unpredictable presidential elections so far:
