Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton went head to head Monday night in the first presidential debate.

NPR's politics team, with help from reporters and editors who cover national security, immigration, business, foreign policy and more, live annotated the debate. Portions of the debate with added analysis are underlined in yellow, followed by context and fact checks.

Correction Sept. 29, 2016

A prior version of this fact check incorrectly said the first federal chief security officer position was vacant. In fact, retired Brig. Gen. Gregory J. Touhill started in that position last week. The Obama administration agrees the federal government needs more and stronger cyber talent, and it issued a workforce strategy earlier this year.
