US Election News: Donald Trump Raises New Conspiracy Against Bill Clinton, Bernie Sanders Calls For Kentucky Recount, & More
Donald Trump raises conspiracy that Bill Clinton killed his former aide. Trump said that Muslims were cheering wildly when the twin towers went down. He said that Ted Cruz’s father was involved in JFK’s assassination. Now, Trump is saying that former president Bill Clinton had something to do with the suicide of his former aide, Vince Foster.
He told The Washington Post that there’s something “very fishy” about Foster’s death. Trump further remarked, “He knew everything that was going on and then all of a sudden, he committed suicide.”
Bernie Sanders calls for a recount in Kentucky. According to a report from Reuters, the Vermont senator has requested for this on Tuesday. A recount will happen on Thursday across all 120 country boards of election. Clinton was earlier declared the winner in Kentucky. She had won by a slim margin.
Hillary Clinton accuses Trump of promoting housing crisis. The Democratic presidential candidate is going at it when it comes to the Trump campaign. Now, Clinton is highlighting Trump’s comments about the housing bubble burst.
On Tuesday, Clinton explained, “He actually said he was hoping for the crash that caused hard-working families in California and across America to lose their jobs.” According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Trump said back in 2006 that he hoped the housing bubble would burst so that “people like me would go in and buy.”
In response to Clinton’s recent attack, Trump responded, “Frankly, this is the kind of thinking our country needs, understanding how to get a good result out of a very bad and sad situation.”
Sanders disappointed in Clinton for not agreeing to do California debate. The Vermont senator said he is “disappointed but not surprised” that Clinton has decided not to debate against him in California.
Following Clinton’s decision, Sanders also remarked, “I also would suggest that Secretary Clinton may want to be not quite so presumptuous about thinking that she is a certain winner.”
RNC announces Trump Victory Leadership team. The Republican National Committee has said that they have formed The Trump Victory Committee in order to provide support to Trump, the party’s likely presidential nominee.
“We are proud to have put together an experienced and motivated leadership team which is going to raise the support our nominee will need to win the White House,” remarks RNC Chairman Reince Priebus.
Sanders has a few millions in the bank left. After spending $38.6 million in April, a report from The Wall Street Journal reveals that the Vermont senator’s campaign only has $5.8 million in cash left. This is perhaps also due to the relatively low fund-raising last month, which was down by around $20 million from the previous month. In contrast, Clinton’s campaign currently has $30.2 million in cash.
