How do I get root privilege in Debian 9?

Thank you,

This is a debian-user question. By default, if you step through the
installer and _don't_ give a root password, then sudo is set up such
that the first created user is set up to use sudo.

Login as that user and type sudo [command]

At least that's what I'm assuming you're asking.

If you did enter a root password:

$ su --login
