Hillary Clinton sharply criticized Donald Trump for his comments on military veterans and post-tramautic stress, which have drawn criticism for his suggestion that "strong" veterans don't have to worry about the disorder.
"Donald Trump's comments are not just ignorant, they're harmful," she said, raising concerns that such remarks increase the stigma surrounding mental health.
"Every one of our troops matter. Their wounds could be visible, or they could be invisible," Clinton said.

Hillary Clinton, on Tim Kaine preparing for the vice presidential debate
Vice President Joe Biden had a little trash talk for the Republican contender for his job on Tuesday, taking a moment out of his workday to offer some pre-debate “advice” for Republican Indiana Gov. Mike Pence.
“Think about whether you made the right decision,” Biden said, hours before Pence’s debate with Biden’s fellow Democrat, Tim Kaine.
"Because it could be a long day in that office over there," he said, pointing out the window at the White House, "if you don't agree with the president."
More Americans will likely watch Tuesday's vice presidential debate than watched the summer political conventions, President Obama’s final State of the Union address or even the last Oscars or clinching World Series game.
That viewership, though, does not mean the match-up of Democratic Sen. Tim Kaine of Virginia and Republican Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana will make much of a difference in the presidential race.
Some of the most memorable moments in national debates have occurred in the vice presidential face-offs, including Democrat Lloyd Bentsen’s famous “You’re no Jack Kennedy” putdown of Dan Quayle in 1988. Yet it was George H.W. Bush who won that election and took Quayle with him to the White House.
Donald Trump supporters awaiting his appearance here weren’t too sure about either Mike Pence or Tim Kaine, the vice presidential nominees who will meet for their only debate Tuesday night. But no matter — they were confident in Pence, above, because Trump chose him as a running mate.
“I don’t know much about them,” said Ruth Sundin, 69, of Sun City West. She added that she couldn’t name either Pence or Kaine.
“But I’m sure Trump’s vice president is going to be better than the other guy. I mean, Hillary chose him.”
Even in our increasingly partisan society, you might have figured that your doctor’s office would be neutral territory. But that just goes to show how naive you are.
A new study from researchers at Yale University details significant differences in the way primary care physicians from across the political spectrum approach medical issues that touch on hot-button topics, such as abortion and gun control.
For instance, doctors were more likely to say they would counsel a patient seeking an abortion to consider the mental health consequences of going through with the procedure if they were registered to vote as Republicans than as Democrats. Likewise, doctors registered as Democrats were more likely to urge patients who owned guns to keep them out of their homes, while doctors registered as Republicans were more likely to ask if the guns were stored safely.
After a week of outbursts that risked offending many women, Donald Trump is stepping up campaign advertising aimed at female voters, airing a new television spot touting his promise to subsidize child care.

The latest CBS News poll found the Republican presidential nominee running 18 percentage points behind Hillary Clinton among women, with Trump holding an 11-point lead among men.
Trying to solidify her support with woman voters in this crucial battleground state, Hillary Clinton held a town hall-style event Tuesday focused on family issues with her daughter Chelsea and actress Elizabeth Banks.
It was a chance to tout her own education policies while criticizing what she has called Donald Trump’s record of misogynistic comments.
One 15-year-old girl asked Clinton how she would combat the impact of Trump’s crude remarks about women’s bodies, including a former Miss Universe.
