Trump will have the opportunity to respond to Clinton's portrayal of him before the American Legion: He is scheduled to address the group Thursday.

The Fox News poll is based on landline and cellphone interviews with 1,011 randomly chosen registered voters nationwide and was conducted under the joint direction of Anderson Robbins Research (D) and Shaw & Company Research (R) from August 28-30, 2016.

Isn't it a little unusual that she now supports Clinton's plans, which have been praised by progressive groups and called "the most progressive agenda since Lyndon Johnson's Great Society or Franklin D. Roosevelt's New Deal"?

Ms. Le Pen, who is running as the populist, anti-mass migration and Islamisation candidate in the 2017 presidential elections next year, noted similarities between her campaign and Mr. Trump's.


Trump has said he dislikes the term "American exceptionalism", and has described it as insulting to other nations. And so far, most of it has been sticking to Donald Trump.

A large 44-percent minority says both Clinton and Trump are "terrible" candidates. "Getting countries working together was my job every day as secretary of state", Clinton said.

Mrs Clinton and Mr Trump are the most unpopular presidential candidates in modern U.S. politics. "The Obama-Clinton strategy of "leading from behind" set the table for ISIS to grow". "Hillary Clinton owes explanations for why she broke ethics agreements regarding foreign donations to her family foundation, gave preferential treatment to foundation donors as secretary of state, and why we should believe that her secret server wasn't created to cover up the shady pay-to-play politics at her State Department". "For Americans who are concerned about national security and the treatment of our veterans, Donald Trump is our only choice for President".

In her speech, Clinton cited the endorsements of dozens of members of the Republican foreign-policy establishment.


During a surprise visit with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto, Trump lavished praise on America's southern neighbor and pointedly avoided publicly insisting that Mexico pay for the wall he's pledged to build along the U.S. -Mexico border.

Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign will begin airing ads in Arizona on Friday, multiple Clinton aides tell CNN, a move that comes hours after Donald Trump said "there will be no amnesty" in a fiery immigration speech that Clinton aides dubbed "his darkest speech yet". He and his aides have spent the last week-and-a-half offering mixed signals.

On Tuesday alone, the Democratic nominee attended three fundraisers in NY, including an evening gathering at Jimmy Buffett's home in the Hamptons, where she collected at least $2.1 million, according to attendance figures provided by her campaign. The fundraising swing concluded in style Tuesday night, with an event featuring performances from Jimmy Buffett, Jon Bon Jovi and Paul McCartney.
