Tales from the Trail
Anyone have flashbacks during Donald Trump’s New York speech today?
The Republican presidential candidate’s address, aimed primarily at his Democratic rival Hillary Clinton, promised “jobs, jobs, jobs” to the “Americans, Americans, Americans,” he promised to make rich, safe and great again.
The Clinton Foundation may have been the target of Russian hackers, according to a report from Bloomberg. The revelation is the latest in a series of political hacks (no, not those political hacks) that have plagued this year’s election. Earlier this month, Russian government-associated hackers breached the Democratic National Committee’s computer network and stole some opposition research on Donald Trump. Oh, to be a fly on that firewall.
The latest financial statements from the Democratic and Republican presidential campaigns show a huge disparity in cash on hand of $1.29 million for Donald Trump versus $42 million for Hillary Clinton, not counting any cash reserves at political action committees for either side.
Unsurprisingly, leading presidential candidates Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump expressed sharply contrasting responses to Sunday’s attack on a gay nightclub in Orlando, while President Obama made a very mournful statement from the White House.
