Newshub's Patrick Gower is always watching, Donald Trump

Wherever politicians are, Newshub Political Editor Patrick "Paddy" Gower has a penchant for lurking in the background, and today's US Presidential debate was no different.

While Republican candidate Donald Trump was taking post-debate questions from CNN on the issues of "birtherism", Paddy's smiling face was right behind him.

And it's not the first time Paddy has swooped in behind a politician under the media scrum, with a video showing him in a stare-down with United Future's Peter Dunne causing a stir on the internet in May.

Paddy is in the US covering the country's upcoming election.

Today's debate between Mr Trump and Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton focused on a wide range of issues, including trade, race relations and terrorism.
