Polls: Hillary Clinton defeats Donald Trump in final debate

-Russian relations would be beneficial to the U.S. He added that Putin has "no respect" for Clinton or President Barack Obama.

Hillary Clinton ramped up her pressure on Donald Trump in the election's most competitive states Friday with an emotional TV ad targeting his criticism of a Muslim-American family.

Trump refused in a televised debate to say he would accept the outcome of the election on November 8.

"The United States government has said very clearly that this was done by a foreign power, particularly the Russians, and Mr. Trump denied it", she told VOA.

Allegations by the USA government that Russia is trying to influence the election by hacking Democratic groups has fed a Clinton camp claim that Russian President Vladimir Putin is siding with Trump.

Mr Obama lashed the Republican nominee's remarks in OH saying that they were "not a joking matter" and "dangerous", as sowing the "seeds of doubt" about the legitimacy of elections "undermines our democracy".

His comments ratcheted up his claims that has intensified in recent days that the election is being rigged against him.

It's safe to say Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump didn't finish Wednesday night's debate on the best terms.

Trump's campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, later insisted that the candidate had meant he would not concede until the "results are actually known". "It's the American way", said the 80-year-old senator, who is part of an increasingly uphill Republican fight to retain control of the USA senate.

First Lady Michelle Obama will attend a campaign rally on Clinton's behalf in the key state of Arizona, while Vice President Joe Biden hopes to extend Clinton's narrow lead in New Hampshire with an appearance in the city of Nashua. Virginia was 27 at the time.
