Donald Trump told reporters after last night's debate that he held back from talking about former President Bill Clinton's private indiscretions because the former president's daughter Chelsea Clinton was present, NBC News reported.
"I'm very glad that I didn't mention, because Chelsea was in the room, indiscretions by, I didn't think would be appropriate to do even though she's taken all these ads. I thought we did very well," Trump said.
Trump's daughter Ivanka is friends with Chelsea Clinton.
Trump's running mate Mike Pence said on the "Today" show Tuesday morning that the Republican presidential candidate showed great restraint during the debate after an "avalanche of insults" from Clinton.

Does Donald Trump have a cold? He began Monday night's debate at Hofstra University occasionally sniffling, which appeared to distract many people following along on social media.
It wasn't clear if Trump had a cold, and Trump's sniffles only made occasional reappearances. When Hillary Clinton had pneumonia about two weeks ago, it became a major question mark over her own campaign.
Two home-made bombs hit a mosque and a conference center in eastern Germany late Monday in what officials called a "xenophobic" attack, NBC News reported.

A recent government report warned that xenophobia was rising in ex-communist eastern Germany.

Are Americans safer? It depends on where you live.
A report issued Monday by the FBI says the number of murders rose by more than 10 percent in 2015 from the previous year, while violent crime overall was up nearly 4 percent. Experts say the increase is driven by a spike in violent crime in at least several large cities, but they caution that the country is in the midst of such low crime rates that even the tiniest increase appears larger than it is.

New York state will now allow people to be buried with the cremated remains of their pet.
Gov. Andrew Cuomo signed the measure into law on Monday.
Cemeteries wouldn't have to offer the option, and religious cemeteries would be specifically forbidden from doing so.
Cuomo, a Democrat, says many New Yorkers consider their pets to be a member of the family, and say the previous regulation banning the burial of cremated pet remains with their human companions was "unnecessary."
Twitter was abuzz during the presidential debate Monday, but nothing grabbed people's attention like a tweet Donald Trump sent in 2012, according to the company itself.

It was the most retweeted tweet during the debate, according to Twitter's government and elections team. So what made that obscure tweet rise to the top of the Twitter hive mind's consciousness?
