    Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton speaks to reporters aboard her campaign plane before departing from Westchester County Airport on Sept. 27, 2016, in White Plains, New York. Hillary Clinton is campaigning in North Carolina a day after facing off with Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump in the first presidential debate.

    Hillary Clinton won applause from supporters in North Carolina for her performance in Monday night's debate. 

    They greeted the Democratic presidential candidate with cheers on Tuesday after Clinton asked if they saw her first face-off with Republican rival Donald Trump. 

    Clinton said she was happy to have the opportunity to lay out her vision for the United States. She said she has an "old-fashioned idea that if I'm asking for your vote, to actually tell you what I want to do."

    Clinton also urged supporters to register to vote. She predicted record turnout in November.

    Trump briefly addressed his first faceoff with Clinton during a Tuesday afternoon appearance near Miami's Little Havana neighborhood. The audience was largely Cuban-American.

    Trump described the debate as "an interesting evening" and said more than 80 million people watched it. He said he tried not to think about the large television audience.

    He said, "I think we did very well." He suggested he was the winner in virtually all post-debate polls. That's despite many Republican leaders and voter surveys suggesting that Clinton came out on top.

    Trump called it, "a very big moment, a very important moment."
