Dolan revealed that the two political rivals prayed together backstage before the event.

He revealed on the Today show Friday morning: "Before we were introduced, I asked if we could say a prayer and after the prayer, Trump turned to Clinton and said, 'you know you are one tough and talented woman and he said it has been a good experience.

"'She said to him, 'whatever happens, we need to work together afterwards.'"
