Hillary to Receive a Larger Podium for Monday's Debate

Daniel Pickert | September 26, 2016

Hillary Clinton will be standing behind a larger podium relative to her opponent Donald Trump’s podium during Monday night’s presidential debate at Hofstra University, where she will reportedly also be provided a small box to stand on. The changes came at Clinton's request in order to even her height, which is 5’4", with Trump's, who is 6’2". 

According to WABC Radio Host Rita Cosby — who took both pictures below — a piece of plywood has been inserted into the middle of Clinton’s podium to heighten it.


It appears Clinton’s podium is not only bigger than Trump’s, but slightly taller as well.

The debate will begin at 9 p.m. EST at Hofstra University, who also hosted debates in the 2008 and 2012 presidential races.
