    FBI says foreign hackers penetrated state election systems

    The FBI has uncovered evidence that foreign hackers penetrated two state election databases in recent weeks, prompting the bureau to warn election officials across the country to take new steps to enhance the security of their computer systems, according to federal and state law enforcement officials. The FBI warning, contained in a “flash” alert from the FBI’s Cyber Division, a copy of which was obtained by Yahoo News, comes amid heightened concerns among U.S. intelligence officials about the possibility of cyberintrusions, potentially by Russian state-sponsored hackers, aimed at disrupting the November elections. Johnson emphasized in the call that Homeland Security was not aware of “specific or credible cybersecurity threats” to the election, officials said.

    Chris Christie defends Donald Trump’s immigration policy as ‘completely consistent’

    New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie says that the core of Donald Trump’s immigration policy has been consistent — kicking criminals out of the country and denying amnesty to undocumented immigrants. The onetime Trump rival who is now the chairman of the Republican presidential nominee’s transition team defended Trump’s softening of his immigration policy during an appearance on ABC’s “This Week” Sunday morning. In a conversation with journalist Martha Raddatz, Christie highlighted that Trump has said no undocumented immigrants will be eligible for citizenship unless they leave the United States and reenter through legal channels.

Most people believed the imposter was the real Kaine.

    No, you’re a racist! Clinton, Trump repeatedly accuse each other of bigotry

    After Hillary Clinton’s denunciations of Donald Trump as a race-baiting demagogue, he dug up the oldest comeback in the book: I know you are but what am I? You look at what’s happening to African-Americans and Hispanics in this country,” Trump said during a Thursday night interview with CNN’s Anderson Cooper. Cooper pressed Trump, who had called Clinton a bigot at a rally Wednesday night, on the definition of “bigotry” and whether the GOP nominee thinks Clinton has antipathy or hatred toward a particular group, or if he just thinks her policies are bigoted.

    Trump’s past comments illustrate striking shift on deportation policy

    Donald Trump’s campaign insists that he hasn’t flip-flopped on illegal immigration despite backing down on his promise to deport all the estimated 11 million undocumented people living in the United States. The Republican presidential nominee’s hard-line immigration stance and incendiary rhetoric swayed primary voters. Trump even cited President Obama’s approach to deportation as one he would also embrace.

    Trump on Clinton: ‘It’s Watergate all over again’

    Donald Trump responded to Hillary Clinton’s attempt to tie his campaign to hate groups by comparing her email scandal to one of the most infamous scandals in American political history. “A secretary of state sold her office to corporations and foreign governments, betraying the public trust— putting innocent lives in danger — and then she went to great lengths to hide, delete, destroy and lie about the evidence. “Just imagine the damage to our security, to our integrity, to our standing in the world, if Hillary Clinton is allowed to sell the Oval Office the same way she sold her office as secretary of state.

    What is the ‘alt-right’? A beginner’s guide

    A political movement most Americans have never heard of is suddenly in the spotlight, thanks to Donald Trump — who has hired one of its leading spokesmen to run his campaign — and Hillary Clinton, whose speech planned for Thursday afternoon is expected to denounce it. It’s the “alt-right,” a loose aggregation of bloggers, radio hosts, think tanks and activists that emerged from the “white nationalist” movement of the 1980s and 1990s. Instead, it postulates that the culture of white America is under attack, and sees itself as its defender.

    Trump calls Clinton a ‘bigot’ at surreal rally with U.K. Independence Party leader

    As he seeks to make inroads with African-Americans and other minority voters, Donald Trump dramatically escalated his rhetoric against rival Hillary Clinton, accusing her of being a “bigot” who does not truly care about blacks and Hispanics. “Hillary Clinton is a bigot who sees people of color only as votes, not as human beings worthy of a better future,” the GOP presidential nominee declared at a rally here Wednesday night. Beginning with a speech last week outside Milwaukee, the GOP nominee has repeatedly condemned “the bigotry of Hillary Clinton” while arguing that Democrats have failed minority voters and taken them for granted.

    ‘Trump Revealed’ writers: Immigration shift was no surprise

    Donald Trump’s recent pivot on immigration should not have come as a surprise to anyone who knows about his career-long knack for giving the crowd what it wants, according to two Trump biographers. Washington Post investigative reporter Michael Kranish and Washington Post senior editor Marc Fisher, authors of “Trump Revealed: An American Journey of Ambition, Ego, Money, and Power,” discussed Trump’s evolving immigration stance in an appearance on Yahoo News Now with Stephanie Sy. The Republican presidential candidate who during the primary called for a deportation force to round up the nation’s estimated 11 million undocumented immigrants has toned down his rhetoric over the past week.

    Hillary Clinton will make the case in a speech Thursday that Donald Trump’s campaign is led by people who propagate extreme and racist viewpoints that belie Trump’s recent attempts to pivot to the center ahead of the election. “[Trump] is taking a hate movement mainstream,” Clinton said in an interview with CNN Wednesday. Ahead of the speech, the campaign released a video showing white supremacists and members of the KKK praising Trump.

    Donald Trump says he’s open to ‘softening’ immigration law

    The Republican presidential candidate’s hard-line stance and policy proposals surrounding illegal immigration have been a centerpiece to his campaign. In a Tuesday conversation with Fox News’ Sean Hannity, Trump said he would consider changing aspects of immigration law as it relates to people who immigrated to the U.S. illegally but have not otherwise broken the law. Trump described the two-tier policy toward illegal immigration that he touched upon the day before.

    Trump campaign manager: Here’s why we think the polls are wrong

    Donald Trump’s campaign manager, Kellyanne Conway, argued that polls showing her candidate losing are missing the “undercover Trump voter” who is embarrassed to admit support for the Republican nominee. “Our internal polling is proprietary and confidential so I won’t discuss it,” Conway said, according to an interview transcript published earlier this week by the British Channel 4 network. “Donald Trump performs consistently better in online polling where a human being is not talking to another human being about what he or she may do in elections,” she continued.

    Clinton campaign slams ‘utterly flawed’ AP report on foundation donors

    Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign is slamming an Associated Press report that more than half the people outside government that she met with while she was secretary of state donated to the Clinton Foundation. “It cherry-picked a limited subset of Secretary Clinton’s schedule to give a distorted portrayal of how often she crossed paths with individuals connected to charitable donations to the Clinton Foundation,” Clinton campaign spokesman Brian Fallon said in a statement on Tuesday.

    President Obama’s Tuesday trip to flood-battered Louisiana may have turned into a political football, but he says he hasn’t paid it much mind. Obama batted down a question about the trip being politicized during a press conference in Baton Rouge, La. “First of all, one of the benefits of being five months short of living here [at the White House] is I don’t worry too much about politics,” he replied.

    Donald Trump muddles hardline immigration stance from GOP primary

    Donald Trump’s nebulous immigration policy appears to be shifting away from the promise of mass deportations to something a bit more tenable: a focus on criminals living in the United States illegally. During the primary campaign, Trump advocated for a “deportation force” to remove the estimated 11 million people who have illegally immigrated into the United States. Last weekend, BuzzFeed and Univision reported that he told a Hispanic advisory council he would support legal status for some immigrants.

Last week, Trump argued that Democrats have taken black voters for granted and that those voters should vote for him.

    Donald Trump says he is not “flip-flopping” on his plan to deport millions of people who immigrated to the U.S. illegally, days after reports indicated he was hedging on one of his signature campaign vows. “I’m not flip-flopping,” the Republican nominee said on “Fox & Friends” on Monday. On Saturday, Trump met with his Hispanic advisory council at Trump Tower in New York City, where he reportedly told Hispanic leaders that he plans to unveil a new policy that would help find a way to legalize some of those living illegally in the United States.
