(Reuters/Lucy Nicholson)The third US Presidential 2016 debate between Hillary Clinton (in photo) and Donald Trump is happening tonight.

Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton and Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump are set to face each other again for the third round of the US Presidential 2016 debate. The debate is scheduled to happen at 9 p.m. Eastern Time tonight and will run for 90 minutes.

Tonight's debate will only feature two candidates since they are the only ones who have reached more than 15 percent of the national polls. It has been announced that in order to qualify for the upcoming debate, a candidate must poll at least 15 percent to be invited.

Fox News will host the debate and Chris Wallace was chosen by the Commission on Presidential Debates to moderate the anticipated event. The format will be similar to the first debate between Clinton and Trump wherein there will be six parts of 15-minute segments. The candidates will be given 2 minutes each to answer the question and the rest of the time will be spent on discussions.

The 6 topics to be discussed have also been announced by Wallace and they are debt and entitlements, immigration, economy, supreme court, foreign hot spots, and fitness to be president. Wallace, however, also stated that he is open to alter the topics if necessary.

The first two debates of the said presidential candidates did not go well. Trump has been relentless about his attacks to both Hillary and her husband Bill. In the first round, he referred to his opponent as "Secretary Clinton," but went on to refer to her as "the devil" in the next.

His statements about sexual advances and other women rights-related issues have been the subject of many discussions among varied social media sites.

On the other hand, Clinton's multiple presidential campaign machinations issue was thrown at her. Hacked emails from her campaign seem to suggest that she has campaigned in such a way that many view as corrupt.

On their last debate, many are hoping that the argument between the two will become civil, while others believe it will only get worse. Find out tonight, 9 p.m. Eastern Time, on Fox News.
