Trump's comment on rigging of elections is unsafe: Obama

Clinton's lead over Trump in national opinion polls has grown in recent weeks.

"Now, if some of you haven't noticed, Hillary isn't laughing as much as the rest of us", Trump said.

Hillary Clinton and her Republican opponent are in a statistical dead heat in Georgia, according to a new Atlanta Journal-Constitution poll, and she has a double-digit lead in battleground Virginia, according to Christopher Newport University.

Both candidates started out on themselves, with Hillary Clinton mocking her own pantsuits and Donald Trump making reference to his supposedly small hands.

But the line that triggered the loudest boos was when Trump said that Clinton was "pretending not to hate Catholics".

At a rally near the Civil War battlefield of Gettysburg, Mr Trump laid out an agenda for his first 100 days as president, promising to lift restrictions on domestic energy production, label China a currency manipulator and renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement. "I get that. They're hard to keep up with, and I'm sure it's even harder when you're translating from the original Russian".

"I want you to tell them that I understand that they need a president who cares about them, will listen to them, and I want to be their president too", she said. "For example, Hillary believes that it's vital to deceive the people by having one public policy and a totally different policy in private".

And I very politely replied: 'Let me talk to you about that after I get into office'.

At the annual dinner, honoring former Governor of New York Al Smith, politicians from across the spectrum are encouraged to set aside their differences and playfully "roast" one another. He called her a "nasty woman" to her face at the last presidential debate, and for months he's claimed she deserves to be in jail.

He then continued on this course to more boos.

The Democrat said Trump's conspiracy theories illustrated his authoritarian tendencies. "She knows a lot about how government works". Like many things related to this election, the dinner did not go according to tradition.

Clinton's speech, which included more self-depricating jokes, was more well-received by the audience.

"Well, that was the third and last time that I will ever have to debate Donald Trump", Clinton said.
