Hillary Clinton gives her first press conference in 275 days
Yesterday morning, the Clinton campaign unveiled a new plane emblazoned with their "Stronger Together" slogan. For the plane's maiden flight, Hillary Clinton brought the news media aboard and broke a 275-day stint without a press conference.
Clinton takes shots at Trump and Russia
En route to two Labor Day campaign rallies, Clinton suggested to reporters that Russia may be working to elect Donald Trump, calling it unprecedented that a “foreign adversarial power” could be involved in the process.
I’m really concerned about the credible reports about Russian government interference in our elections.

“I heard now that we’ve got this great plane, that Donald Trump actually invited his press on his plane, where I’m told he even answered a few questions,” Clinton said. “Following my lead as he did, I would hope he continues and releases his tax returns,” she added.
Clinton was less forthcoming about questions into the Clinton Foundation.
Donald Trump made millions from the Saudi government
A New York Daily News investigation reports that Donald Trump made $4.5 million by selling the 45th floor of Trump World Tower to the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia in 2001.
Donald Trump has previously criticized the Democratic nominee for accepting Saudi Arabian donations to the Clinton Foundation.
Crooked Hillary says we must call on Saudi Arabia and other countries to stop funding hate. I am calling on her to immediately return the $25 million plus she got from them for the Clinton Foundation!
