When Bill Clinton told the staff of his global charity he would have to step down if Hillary Clinton won the White House, he was vividly clear about how that felt: Worse than a root canal, he said.

He's promised to step down from the board if Hillary Clinton wins the White House in November, a commitment made amid swirling questions - pushed along by Donald Trump - about her ability to separate herself from the foundation's wealthy contributors at home and overseas.

"Republican Senators and candidates continue to support Donald Trump for president no matter how racist, sexist or xenophobic he is, and every time voters are reminded of how unsafe Trump is, they are reminded that people like Joe Heck, Kelly Ayotteand Rob Portman lack the independence and courage to buck their party and stand up to Trump", said DSCC spokeswoman Sadie Weiner.

The narrator continues that, in "Donald Trump's America, working families get tax relief". During the announcement of his potential departure, she said he noted that his role as head of the foundation was "the longest job he has held".

An Associated Press review of Clinton's calendars from a two-year stretch show that more than half of those she met with from outside of government had made contributions to the foundation. He is opposing Democrat Evan Bayh, a former senator.


Trump has focused lately on deporting people who are in the US illegally and who have committed crimes. His running mate, Mike Pence, describes him as "a CEO at work" as he consults with various stakeholders. Hillary Clinton has even raised the prospect of putting her husband in charge of "revitalizing the economy". It recommends that if Hillary Clinton wins, both Bill and Chelsea Clinton should end their operational involvement in the foundation and its affiliates for the duration of her presidency, relinquishing any control over spending, hiring and board appointments.

In a matchup including Libertarian Party nominee Gary JohnsonGary JohnsonPoll: Clinton has 6-point lead over Trump Supreme Court shuts down Ohio Libertarians" ballot request Gary Johnson: Trump "fumbling' on immigration MORE and Green Party nominee Jill Stein, Clinton has a 4-point lead over the Trump, 41 to 37 percent. A lot of her support in the state comes from the Philadelphia region, where she has a 62% to 29% edge over Trump.

Burns, an African-American who is frequently one of the warmup speakers at Trump rallies, sent out the tweet on Monday to bolster the Trump campaign's contention that Clinton is pandering for the black vote but will ignore the community if elected on November 8.

He says: "African-Americans will vote for Trump because they know I will stop the slaughter going on!"

Trump also says he thinks high crime in inner cities will drive minority voters to his candidacy.


On Monday, Clinton rolled out a comprehensive plan to address millions of Americans coping with mental illness, pointing to the need to fully integrate mental health services into the nation's health care system.

Donald Trump says he'll deliver a detailed speech on his proposal to crack down on illegal immigration on Wednesday in Arizona - but it's anyone's guess what he might say.

The Democratic presidential nominee's agenda would focus on early diagnosis and intervention and create a national initiative for suicide prevention.

In one case, the chairman of the Republican National Committee refused to speak for the GOP nominee at all. I am not Donald Trump.
