    Aug 28, 2016- The US Republican presidential nominee, Donald Trump, has said he will develop a tracking system to help authorities control immigration. Speaking on the campaign trail in Iowa, he outlined what he called an "entry-exit" programme, which would track those who overstay their visas. He also reiterated his support for building a wall along the southern border with Mexico. And he said he would stop illegal immigrants getting welfare benefits. "I am going to build a great border wall, institute nationwide e-verify, stop illegal immigrants from accessing welfare and entitlements, and develop an exit-entry tracking system to ensure...

The emails -– released as part of a public records lawsuit by conservative group Citizens United and shared exclusively with ABC -- reveal what the group claims is new evidence Foundation allies received special treatment. In one December 2010 email chain with Clinton's closest aide Huma Abedin, then-top Clinton Foundation official Doug Band offers names for a State Department lunch with Chinese President Hu Jintao scheduled for...

    DES MOINES, Iowa — Donald Trump received a rockstar welcome from roughly two-thousand people when he took the stage as “I’m Proud to Be an American” played from the speakers at Sen. Joni Ernst’s second annual Roast and Ride in Des Moines, Iowa on Saturday. “The GOP is offering voters a chance to break up the corrupt establishment and create a new American future,” the Republican nominee stated. “This chance will never come again.” “Our campaign is about protecting those who have no power,” he added. “These are the people that work hard, but don’t have a voice.” The outsider...

    When you combine Hillary Clinton’s lack of appeal with her alleged ethically questionable dealings regarding paid access at the Clinton Foundation, you’re going to take a hit in the polls. In fact, in the past three days, Clinton has dropped seven points against Donald Trump. Nationally, she still leads by five, but that’s still within striking distance of the Republican nominee. That says more about her than Trump. Both are widely unpopular standard bearers for their respective political parties, but Clinton just seems incapable of breaking 50 percent. There is some silver linings for the Clinton campaign. They’re still leading...

    Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has made up significant ground against Hillary Clinton in the past few days in the Reuters/Ipsos poll, where he trailed by 12 points on Tuesday, 45%-33%, but is now behind only 5 points, 41%-36%. When four candidates are included in the poll — taking in Green Party candidate Jill Stein and Libertarian Gary Johnson — Clinton’s lead narrows to just 3 points, 39%-36% — a statistical dead heat, given the poll’s margin of error of 3 points. The poll was taken Aug. 22-25, over a period where Clinton accused Trump of aligning with the Ku...

    Republican Donald Trump kept up his race-fueled attack on Democrat Hillary Clinton Friday, calling his rival and her husband 'predators' and hitting her for 'racist undertones' of her failed 2008 campaign. It was just his latest effort to get under Clinton's skin with increasingly incendiary comments, which culminated this week when he directly called his rival a 'bigot' who doesn't care about African American communities. 'The Clinton's are the real predators' Trump wrote on Twitter in just one of a barrage of attacks. The Tweet linked to a campaign video that dredged up Clinton's comments in support of the 1994...

    Rio de Janeiro (AFP) - Police on Friday recommended corruption charges against Brazil's ex-president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva as part of a probe into a huge embezzlement scheme at state oil company Petrobras. The recommendation, which must now be considered by prosecutors before becoming formal charges, was made in a filing seen by AFP. A judge would still have to decide whether to accept the charges. The development comes as Lula's successor and protege Dilma Rousseff fights an impeachment trial in the Senate. Lula, who founded the Workers' Party and was president between 2003-2010 before helping Rousseff get elected,...

Instead, NAFTA has destroyed more than 850,000 American jobs while the U.S. trade deficit in goods has rocketed from near zero to $60 billion annually.
