Trump says he was against Iraq war all along, disputes Clinton

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks with

The former secretary of state has granted some 350 interviews with the press so far this year and has also responded to journalists' questions at many campaign events, but the Thursday press conference was the first such formal gathering with the media she has held since December 5, 2015.

Donald Trump Jr, the candidate's son, shared a post yesterday from Infowars, a website known for spreading conspiracy theories, which alleged that Mrs Clinton had been wearing an earpiece during the forum so her staff could help her respond to questions.

"I think under the leadership of Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton the generals have been reduced to rubble".

"Here is what is important, I now have more endorsements from retired flag officers than any Democrat other than an incumbent president has ever had", Clinton said.

Sexism has previously been a topic of discussion on the campaign trail after Trump accused Clinton of playing the "woman card" during the primary season in April, stating: "I think the only card she (Clinton) has is the women's card".

"I think he is being very smart in how he addresses Putin and you know, maybe he's playing with Putin's ego", said Representative Marsha Blackburn of Tennessee.

"If they keep fighting in the way they did today, they're going to have a real problem", Trump said then. "Because that would not be appropriate at all".

Republican nominee Trump again praised Russian President Vladimir Putin, calling him a "leader" and saying Putin has "great control over his country".

Besides taking the time to rail against Gary Johnson for his Aleppo flub, both CBS and NBC took the time to highlight Hillary Clinton railing against Donald Trump the day after the Commander-in-Chief forum. "He called out One Direction in front of their fans, an army way stronger than Hillary and Trump will ever possess!" he said.
