Why wont my first question prompt in the make a quiz challenge?

After live previewing several times I am still unsure as to why the code below will not at the very least prompt one question. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

// Questions

var questions = [
            ['Who is the President of the U.S?', 'Donald Trump'],
            ['Whos is the Vice President of the U.S?', 'Mike Pence'],
            ['Who won the Super Bowl last year?', 'Patriots']
];

//Variables go here, answer, response, question ect
var correctAnswers = 0;
var question;
var answer;
var response;
var html;

function print(message) {
  document.write(message);
}

    //below is how you loop the questions above 
for (var i = 0; i < questions.length; i += 1); {
    question = questions[i][0];
    answer = questions[i][1];
    response = prompt(question);
}

There's a stray semicolon in the "for" loop between the closing parenthesis of the loop expressions and the opening brace of the code block.
