Unbowed by charges of racism, Donald Trump is sticking by his fictional story that Hillary Clinton tried to force President Obama to release his birth certificate.
“Hillary Clinton was unable to get there, and I will tell you she tried,” Trump told an NH1 television reporter Thursday.
It was Trump, not his Democratic rival, who spread the lie that Obama was born in Kenya and falsely accused him of producing a fake birth certificate that shows he was born in the United States. Trump taunted Obama for years, demanding release of the president’s college records to see the place of birth listed on the application.
Hoping to boost her father's standing among female voters, Ivanka Trump is starring in a new campaign ad that touts the GOP nominee's proposals to aid working women caring for their children.
"The most important job any woman can have is being a mother, and it shouldn't mean taking a pay cut," says Trump's daughter, speaking to directly to the camera in the 30-second ad.
The ad features images of women caring for children and Donald Trump interacting with women in the workplace. It promotes the Trump child-care plan, which was rolled out earlier this month and includes tax credits for child care and paid maternity leave.
Donald Trump has been trying to counter accusations that he is racist by casting himself as a defender of minorities.
But at a rally in the Detroit suburbs Friday, he urged the mostly white crowd to travel to monitor other polling places on election day -- a plea that civil rights groups say is code for preventing blacks from voting.
“Make sure it’s on the up and up," the Republican presidential nominee told thousands of supporters gathered at an expo center.
President Obama is planning a homecoming weekend in Chicago next week, campaigning for local and national Democrats with two major fundraising events, Democratic campaign officials say.
Obama will be the keynote speaker at a fundraising luncheon Friday for the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee featuring House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi of California. Tickets range from $10,000 a person to $66,800 per couple, the latter including a VIP reception.
The event is scheduled at the North Side home of Democratic mega-donor Fred Eychaner, who on Wednesday hosted Vice President Joe Biden for a campaign fundraiser on behalf of Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Tammy Duckworth, a two-term congresswoman challenging Republican U.S. Sen. Mark Kirk.
The letter details Johnson's unusually active lifestyle; the Libertarian presidential contender has competed in 17 marathons and four Ironman Triathlons, and he has climbed the highest mountain peaks on each of the 7 continents.
Even while mounting a third-party presidential bid, Johnson still manages to squeeze in an hour of exercise each day, writes his doctor, Dr. Lyle Amer of Santa Fe. (That's scaling back from his typical two-hour exercise routine when not on the campaign trail.)
Video released Friday shows a decidedly sedate Donald Trump discussing the impact of his presidential campaign on his businesses and his controversial comments about immigrants.
The videotaped deposition, which Trump fought to keep sealed, is part of a legal dispute involving a restaurant owner who backed out of Trump's new hotel in Washington after Trump referred to some Mexican immigrants entering the country as "rapists."
The head of Mexico's central bank says U.S. Republican candidate Donald Trump represents a "hurricane"-sized threat to Mexico.
Banco de Mexico Gov. Agustin Carstens told the Radio Formula network Friday that a Trump presidency "would be a hurricane and a particularly intense one if he fulfills what he has been saying in his campaign."
Trump has proposed building a wall along the border and renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement.
While Donald Trump mostly failed during the first debate to hammer Hillary Clinton for her use of a private email server as secretary of State, his campaign is seeking to rectify missed opportunities.
In a television ad released Friday, set to air in several battleground states, Trump assails Clinton over issues including her emails and her labeling half of his supporters "deplorables." She has since apologized.
"Why aren't I 50 points ahead, you might ask," Clinton says in video footage at the outset of the 30-second spot.
