Trump should have smiled more during the debate.

Nobody wants to vote for an angry or depressed president, right? Also, Trump needs to work on his high disapproval ratings.

One way to fix that is to not look so down! Trump's real problem is that he doesn't smile enough and he comes off cold and unrelatable.

Here are a few instances when Trump should have smiled during the debate:
