United States election: Trump takes aim at First Lady Michelle Obama

At an October 21 OH campaign rally, Hillary Clinton made a bid to anyone "reconsidering" backing Donald Trump, urging them to vote against the Republican nominee, whose prospective presidency she compared to a "dictatorship". "But we also reserve the right to contest or file a legal challenge in the case of questionable results".

At an event in Coconut Creek, Florida, Hillary Clinton said that Trump is "attacking everything that has set our country apart for 240 years", pointing to his refusal at the final debate to commit to conceding the race if he loses. "I can only say we're going to make America great again", Trump said, adding only that he will draw a contrast with his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton. In fact, just before taking the dais, Hillary accidentally bumped into me and she very civilly said, "Pardon me.' And I very politely replied, 'Let me talk to you about that after I get into office'".

She said the USA has always had a "peaceful transfer of power" and "that is the difference between the rule of law and the rule of strong men".

"When we were going in, I said could we pray together as we were waiting to be announced, and after the prayer, Mr. Trump turned to Secretary Clinton and said, 'You know, you are one tough and talented woman, '" Dolan told NBC's "Today".

The typically self-assured Trump was unusually candid about the possibility of losing the election, a prospect that's grown in likelihood as Clinton solidifies her lead in battleground states that will decide the election.

"I understand that they need a president who cares about them, will listen to them and I want to be their president", she said. "But if the mandate is clear, I don't think many people will follow him", said Virginia Sen.

The poll showed there is broad concern across the political spectrum about voting issues such as ineligible voters casting ballots, voter suppression, and the actual vote count, but Republicans feel that concern more acutely.

Hacked emails from the personal account of Hillary Clinton's top campaign official show her aides considered inserting jokes about her private email server into her speeches at several events - and at least one joke made it into her remarks.

"It is how we hold our country together no matter who is in charge", Clinton said.

Support for Clinton had been mostly rising in the seven-day tracking poll since the last week of August, when the candidates were about tied. 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.

If Clinton wins the White House, she will enter as one of the least popular first-term presidents in generations.

"It's appropriate that people might be suspicious of their motives", Mr Earnest said.

NEW YORK (AP) - Every four years, the Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner is meant to be a campaign cease-fire, when the presidential nominees share the stage a final time before Election Day and trade warm-hearted jokes.
