Another Republican Leader Wants to See Donald Trump's Tax Returns

Hillary Clinton defended her family's charitable foundation on Wednesday against criticism from Donald Trump, saying it had provided more transparency than her Republican rival's sprawling business interests.

Clinton's campaign also released an online video that compiles footage of prominent white supremacist leaders praising Trump, who has been criticized for failing to immediately denounce the support he's garnered from white nationalists and supremacists, including former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke.

Three people interviewed said they were voting for and supporting Trump against the Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton.

At a campaign rally in Jackson, Mississippi, Wednesday night, Trump insisted any immigration policy pass three broad tests: It must improve jobs and wages for United States citizens; must improve citizens' safety and security; and improve citizens' quality of life. "And I think people are going to be reasonable and responsible about what do you do with someone who has been in this country for 10 years who otherwise has not violate the law, has learned English, paying taxes, paid a fine and wants a work permit".

It comes as a health project connected to the foundation is exploring a range of changes but may continue to accept foreign government and corporate funding.

Clinton, who officially clinched the Democratic nomination in July after a lengthy primary battle, has embraced the history-making nature of this campaign, compared to her 2008 presidential bid, which played down her gender. "Obviously if I am president there will be some unique circumstances". "He is getting 3 percent of African-Americans nationally and 2 percent of African-Americans in North Carolina".

Her speech focused on the so-called alt-right movement, which is often associated with efforts on the far right to preserve "white identity", oppose multiculturalism and defend "Western values". Trump: "they have to pay taxes, there's no amnesty".

The Republican Party and conservatives in general have been tying themselves in knots trying to figure out how to handle Trump and some of his more inflammatory statements and policies.

But to make up for high Republican turnout here, Democrats have heavily ramped up their voter registration efforts, helping to lay the ground work for Obama's 12-point win over John McCain in 2008 and his almost 7-point win over Mitt Romney in 2012.

Trump - whose campaign says has never used the term "alt-right" and disavows "any groups or individuals associated with a message of hate" - tried to turn the tables on Clinton, suggesting that she was lashing out in order to distract from questions swirling around donations to The Clinton Foundation and her use of her private email servers.

A Republican National Committee spokesman told the Journal it shows that that new policies previously announced are just "window dressing".

In the aftermath of hacked Democratic emails, Trump encouraged hackers from Russian Federation to find Clinton's missing State Department emails, an apparent invitation for a foreign power to intervene in a USA election. "I'm proud of what they've done".

The poll also found that about 22 percent of likely voters would not pick either candidate.
