Republican strategist brands Donald Trump a 'parasite'

Continuing her momentum post conventions, Democratic Presidential nominee Hillary Clinton has consolidated her position in three key swing states, which gives her enough electoral college votes to be the next President of the U.S., a major USA media outlet has said. That compares with 34 per cent support for Trump.

Pierson said that Trump was not referring to Clinton's actual health records, but rather "specific observations just like some of the clips that you've shown".

The resignation of the seasoned Republican strategist Paul Manafort - under fire for his pro-Kremlin ties and role in a Ukrainian corruption scandal - represents the Republican nominee's latest effort to get back on track after weeks of crisis. While Donald Trump dominates the national political chatter as he reboots a trailing campaign, Clinton is successfully stealing positive local headlines as she visits battleground states.

Some 41 percent supported Clinton and 34 percent supported Trump. Within hours of his speech, she tweeted: "This is so ignorant it's staggering". "It gives you more real estate in a more uncluttered way to break through". He did not appeal to African-Americans explicitly in those remarks, but it was clear he was talking about the plight of the city's poor black community.

Hillary For America reported receipts of $52.3 million, more than in any previous month, including her first White House run in 2008.

I certainly am not in love with Hillary Clinton. "So I understand people have some questions", Clinton told black voters at a June luncheon in Chicago. Among substitute-party nominees, Johnson came in third with 7 percent and about 2 percent supported Stein. And 91 percent of African-Americans held an unfavorable view of the Republican. And it's not even clear how honest he really is in his appeals.

That team includes Stephen Bannon, a combative conservative media executive with no presidential campaign experience, and pollster Kellyanne Conway, who has known Trump for years.

"Tonight, I am asking for the vote of every African-American citizen in this country who wants a better future", Trump yesterday said at an election rally in MI during which he alleged that Clinton has done "nothing for them". Soothing some of those fears, then, could help Trump keep the races in states with large black populations close.

Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Priebus also issued a statement saying the group's engagement "is just one component of our expansive effort to engage the Hispanic community, and their contributions will help us compete for every vote in every community all the way through Election Day". But it could in the coming months as Trump tries to make up ground on Clinton before November's election.

One minority group Trump is not attempting to turn over a new leaf with: Hispanics. He launched his campaign previous year with a speech that accused Mexico of sending rapists and criminals across the border, and has since vowed to deport all of the estimated 11 million people living in the US illegally - though some Hispanic supporters insist that Trump has softened his stance.
