Dramatic video has emerged of people chasing down a man believed to have punched a 69-year-old woman on oxygen at a Donald Trump rally, showing the escalation of emotions from both protesters and supporters.

Shirley Teeter told a local ABC News affiliate that she attended the event in Asheville, N.C., to protest Trump. She recalls telling supporters outside the rally that they should start learning Russian — alluding to Trump's admiration for Russian President Vladimir Putin. Then, she said, a man in front of her turned around and punched her in the jaw, knocking her down onto her backpack containing her metal oxygen tank.
For Donald Trump, the timing could hardly have been better for Ford’s announcement Wednesday that it was moving all of its small-car production to Mexico: He was on a campaign swing through Rust Belt towns ravaged by manufacturing’s decline.
After a quick visit to Flint, Mich., a former General Motors town renowned for its urban decay and toxic drinking water, Trump arrived in northern Ohio with an I-told-you-so take on trade and immigration.
“It used to be cars were made in Flint, and you couldn’t drink the water in Mexico,” Trump told several thousand cheering supporters in this heavy-manufacturing town south of Cleveland. “Now, the cars are made in Mexico, and you can’t drink the water in Flint.”
If Hillary Clinton is elected president, her husband and daughter will step down from the organization responsible for some of their family foundation's most prominent work, including lowering the costs of HIV medications in sub-Saharan Africa.
The Clinton Health Access Initiative, an arm of the Clinton Foundation, would become an independent entity if Clinton wins the presidential election, and Bill and Chelsea Clinton would resign from its five-member board, the initiative said Wednesday in a statement.
The entire board would be replaced with "independent" board members, the statement said.
Donald Trump was invited to talk Wednesday about the water crisis in Flint, Mich., but that was soon tossed aside.
In remarks at an African American church in the predominantly black city, Trump, assailing Democratic rival Hillary Clinton on the economy and foreign policy, was interrupted.
"Mr. Trump, I invited you here to thank us for what we've done in Flint, not give a political speech," said Pastor Faith Green Timmons as she approached the Republican presidential nominee at the podium.
A note from Hillary Clinton’s doctor, Lisa Bardack, discloses some additional information about the presidential candidate’s health.
Hillary Clinton is releasing an updated doctor’s note Wednesday afternoon as her campaign tries to get past the political problems caused by keeping her recent pneumonia diagnosis secret.
The release came amid calls for both Clinton and Donald Trump, two of the oldest presidential nominees in history, to reveal more about their personal health.
Earlier on Wednesday, Trump shared some new medical information during a taping of the “The Dr. Oz Show,” which will be broadcast Thursday. Though it is unclear how much Trump shared, it appears neither candidate has released detailed medical records.
Donald Trump added new mystery to the question of how healthy he is, recording an episode of "The Dr. Oz Show" on Wednesday with what the show said were results from a recent physical.
The show will not air until Thursday, so it is unclear how much detail, if any, the Republican nominee went into with the controversial television doctor.
Trump, a 70-year-old with a penchant for eating fast food, has tried to highlight what he and his personal doctor have said is ideal health as the Republican nominee questions the strength and stamina of Hillary Clinton, who abruptly left an event Sunday with what her campaign later described as pneumonia.
Hillary Clinton's campaign, which has been touting upcoming appointments for the ailing candidate, said Wednesday that she would meet next week with Egyptian President Abdel Fattah Sisi and Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko during the United Nations General Assembly.
The meetings, confirmed by an aide, offer Clinton a few political opportunities, in addition to limiting the sense that she has been hampered by her bout with pneumonia. They remind voters she is on a world stage, and they may distract some from Clinton Global Initiative meetings, which will coincide with the U.N. assembly.
The Clinton Global Initiative and the related Clinton Foundation have been the subject of widespread scrutiny and charges of conflict of interest.
