Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump is the winner of a crucial coin toss, so Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton will go first during a Commander-in Chief-forum moderated by NBC’s Matt Lauer.
According to Dafna Linzer, the managing editor for NBC News politics, both candidates preferred to go second and flipped a coin to determine their position.

The RNC’s Sean Spicer represented the Trump campaign at the coin toss while Clinton’s Deputy Communications director Kristina Schake represented Hillary.
The forum airs on NBC and MSNBC and will be hosted by the IAVA (Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America). It will feature questions from veterans and active service members as both candidates will be questioned separately.
