US Election News: Donald Trump Attacks Another Reporter, California Governor Endorses Hillary Clinton, & More
Donald Trump goes after a reporter during press conference. There are a lot of reporters the presumptive Republican presidential candidate loves to hate. At a recent press event, Trump called ABC news reporter Tom Llamas “a sleaze.”
According to Llamas, the controversial GOP candidate had called him that after he asked him about the $6 million he supposedly raised for veterans in Iowa back in January when he decided to skip a presidential debate. This time around, Trump said that he “raised almost $6 million,” but that “some of it didn’t come through.”
California Governor Jerry Brown endorses Hillary Clinton. In an open letter, Brown says that he ha decided to endorse the former first lady and Secretary of State as it is the only way to “stop the dangerous candidacy of Donald Trump.” He also said that even Bernie Sanders has done well, Clinton‘s lead on him is “insurmountable.”
Trump doesn’t like the idea of an independent candidate joining the presidential race. Just a few days ago, Weekly Standard Editor Bill Kristol declared, “There will be an independent candidate–an impressive one, with a strong team and a real chance.” And now, Trump is thoroughly pissed. In response, he called Kristol both an “embarrassed loser” and a “dummy.”
Following this, Kristol remarked, “I gather Donald Trump said I’m a loser. I’ve won some and I’ve lost some, but one thing I’ve always tried not to be is a roaring jackass.”
Clinton says Trump just wants to “disrespect” veterans. The Democratic presidential candidate pointed out that it seems the remaining GOP presidential candidate was only after grabbing the headlines when he said he raised $6 million for veterans groups while also saying he will make a $1 million personal donation.
Clinton’s camp said that Trump has been lying about this and he has even failed to follow through on his own donation, showing veterans “an incredible amount of disrespect.”
Secret Service rushes to stage to protect Sanders from protesters. The Vermont senator had to face off with animal rights protesters during a recent rally in Oakland, California. While speaking onstage, protesters started jumping the barricade to rush towards Sanders.
According to a report from Media ITE, Secret Service agents rushed to secure the Democratic candidate. As protesters walked right behind him, he continued his speech saying, “We don’t get intimidated easily!”
