White nationalists whose rally over the weekend in Sacramento turned violent are planning to go to Cleveland during at the Republican National Convention to support Donald Trump's backers, according to a report.
“We’re essentially just going to show up and make sure that the Donald Trump supporters are defended from the leftist thugs,” Traditionalist Worker Party spokesman Matt Parrott told McClatchy News.
A bloody brawl erupted over the weekend at the California Capitol as the white nationalist group and skinheads clashed with counter-protesters wielding signs reading "Nazi scum."
Donald Trump bolted into the Rust Belt on Tuesday to deliver his most full-throated attack on globalization to date, railing against trade pacts and threatening to impose tariffs against countries he said were exploiting open trade policies.
But Trump, who also backed Great Britain's vote last week to withdraw from the European Union, acknowledged that he used to be among those "financial elites" who benefited from the system.
Indeed, just three years ago, Trump promoted a near-opposite view, using the global village-type of language he now deplores.
The Clinton campaign and a super PAC backing her will unleash $13 million in television advertising next week in an effort to deal a blow to Donald Trump while he is absent from the airwaves.
Most of the ads will air in Florida and Ohio, two battleground states in the election. Clinton’s campaign will spend about $7.5 million, and the super PAC Priorities USA about $5.5 million, according to analysts at CMAG/Kantar Media.
Trump's campaign still hasn't begun airing television ads, and Clinton's team is to influence voters, particularly in crucial swing states, before he does.
After an exhaustive and politically charged investigation that went on for years and cost millions of dollars, Republicans on the House Benghazi committee released a final report Tuesday that shed little new light on the U.S. response to the 2012 attacks in that Libyan city.
The 800-page report, which Democrats on the committee denounced as a sham focused on discrediting Hillary Clinton before it was even released, included no new evidence of wrongdoing by the former secretary of State. Though it argues that the State Department, under her leadership, inadequately protected its staff in Benghazi, its criticism was directed more broadly at the Obama administration.
The report accuses the government of incompetence at various levels, including a failure to deploy needed military assets, CIA intelligence reports that were “rife with errors” and misguided planning, even in the midst of the violence.
