    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.
