Hillary Clinton defends 'stamina' attack from Donald Trump

Hillary Clinton has hit back over accusations she doesn't have the stamina to become the next US president.

Donald Trump initially claimed: "She doesn't have the look. She doesn't have the stamina. I don't believe she does have the stamina.

"To be president of this country you need great stamina.

"You have to be able to negotiate our trade deals - with Japan, with Saudi Arabia... you have so many different things you need to do and you need the stamina", he claimed.

In reply, Mrs Clinton said: "As soon as he travels to 112 countries and negotiates a peace deal a cease fire, or even spends 11 hours in front of a congressional committee he can talk to me about stamina."

Donald Trump has launched a blistering personal attack at Hillary Clinton, who just shrugged off his remarks.

He said America has to "knock the hell out of ISIS" to defend national security.

"When they [the so-called Islamic State] formed, this is something that should never have happened. You [Hillary Clinton] were there when it was a little infant - now they're in over 30 countries.

"I have much better judgement than she does. I have much better temperament than she does.

"I have a winning temperament. I know how to win. She does not know how to win."

Mrs Clinton laughed off the criticism and said: "Whoo. Okay!"

Donald Trump has said the so-called Islamic State "are beating us at our game" on the internet.

He said America is "not doing the job we should be doing" on cyber security.

"Whether that was Russia, whether that was China, whether it was another country, we don't know.

"We came in with the internet, we came up with the internet. When you're looking at what ISIS are doing with the internet - they're beating us at our own game", he added.

Hillary Clinton: I prepared to be president

Hillary Clinton has hit back at criticism of "staying at home" in preparing for the election debate.

Hillary Clinton: Too many African American men jailed

Hillary Clinton has said "it's just a fact" that African American men are more likely to be charged with a criminal offence.

"Too many young African American and Latino men ended up in jail for non-violent offences.

"It's just a fact that if you're a young African American man, and you do the same thing as a young white man, you are more likely to be arrested, charged, convicted and incarcerated.

"We've got to address the systemic racism in our criminal justice system. We cannot just say law and order.

In reply, Donald Trump said the community has been let down by politicians.

He said: "The African American community has been let down by our politicians. They talk good around election time like right now and after the election they said 'see you later, I'll see you in four years'.

"The community within the inner cities has been badly treated. They've been abused and used in order to get votes by Democrat politicians."

Hillary Clinton has said race determines too much in America.

She said: "Race remains a significant challenge in our country. Unfortunately race still determines too much - where you live, what education you can get, and yes, how you get treated in the criminal justice system.

"We have to bring communities together as a mutual goal. We have to have to tackle the plague of gun violence.

Donald Trump said many of those involved in gun violence were "illegal immigrants".

He added: "We need law and order. When I look at what's going on... in various parts of our country. We need law and order.

African Americans and Hispanics are living in hell. In Chicago they've had thousands of shootings. Is this a war-torn country? You walk down the street you get shot.

"We have to bring back law and order. We have gangs - illegal immigrants - who are roaming the streets."

In reply, Mrs Clinton said: "I made a mistake releasing private emails. It was a mistake and I take responsibility for that.

"I will bring back jobs. You can't bring back jobs", he said.
