NEW YORK (TIP): It has been an acrimonious debate, with presidential candidates hurling accusations at each other. It was an unimpressive debate which did not probably bring out the best in the candidates. And if it were the best in them, God save America!

Fifteen Republican candidates spent the better part of five hours debating at the Ronald Reagan presidential library on Wednesday, September 16 night.

Nearly all candidates were critical of the utterances and policy declarations of Donald Trump.

Indian-American US presidential aspirant Bobby Jindal impressed everyone as he took the lead in launching an attack against Republican front-runner Donald Trump, whose growing popularity has unnerved other party candidates, during the second-tier presidential debate.
