Hillary may have been hailed the winner but political commentators agreed Trump performed better than the first debate on September 26th.
To sum up the night, here are the six key moments
TRUMP AND HILLARY DON'T SHAKE HANDS - MASSIVE AWKS
It was clear tensions were running high between the duo as when they were introduced on stage, they didn't not shake hands with each other. Although 90 minutes later after some tense exchanges they did exchange a handshake. Their partners Bill Clinton and Melania Trump shook hands but it was massively awkward. Melania also was criticised for wearing a "p***y" bow blouse. The pleasantries were pretty uncomfortable all around particularly when Tiffany Trump skillfully dodged a kiss from her dad.
TRUMP DEFENDS LEWD P***Y GRAB COMMENT
A tape recording of Trump talking about grabbing women "by the p***y" in 2005 leaked on Friday. It plunged his campaign into chaos with several key Republicans calling for Trump to withdraw from the race.
So Trump's treatment of women was always going to be high on the agenda. He was questioned if he was an appropriate role model but he denied ever sexually assaulting women and dismissed the whole thing as "locker room talk".
He said: "I don't think you understand that this was locker room talk. I apologise to my family and to the American people. Certainly I'm not proud of it. This is locker room talk and when you have a world where ISIS is chopping off heads, drowning people in steel cages where you have wars and horrible, horrible sights all over."
"I'm very embarrassed by it, I hate it but it's locker room talk and one of those things. I will knock the hell out of ISIS. We're going to defeat ISIS."
An hour before the debate, he met with women who have accused former US presidential Bill Clinton of rape and other unwanted sexual advances. He sat them in the front row in front of Hillary.
The billionaire businessman also said "there's never been anybody in the history of politics in this nation that's been so abusive to women" as Bill Clinton. He added he had "great respect" for women.
HILLARY TAKES INSPIRATION FROM MICHELLE OBAMA
Despite low blows about her husband, Hillary Clinton said she preferred not to resort to mud-slinging. Instead she heeded the advice her friend, First Lady Michelle Obama gave her: "When they go low you go high."
She added that a lot of what Trump had said about Bill was "not right".
TRUMP THREATENS HILLARY WITH PRISON
Trump told Hillary that if he wins the election, he will investigate her 33,000 deleted emails and send her to jail.
He said: "I hate to say it but if I win I'm going to instruct my attorney general to get a special prosecutor to look into your situation."
She replied: "It's just awfully good that someone with the temperament of Donald Trump is not in charge of the law in this country."
And he replied: "Because you'd be in jail."
TRUMP WEIRDLY LURKS BEHIND HILLARY
Everyone online went crazy for the really weird and creepy way that Donald Trump lingered behind Hillary when she spoke. Some even described him as a hoverer.
THEY STRUGGLED TO BE NICE TO EACH OTHER
Both candidates broke a smile with the final question when they were asked to think of something they respected about each other.
Hillary said: "I respect his children. His children are incredibly able and I think that says a lot about Donald."
Trump added: "I will say this about Hillary, she doesn't quit, she doesn't give up. I tell it like it is. She is a fighter."
The third and final presidential debate takes places on Wednesday October 19th in Las Vegas.
