From Hempstead, New York –

With six weeks to go until Election Day, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton headed out of Hofstra University Monday night after clashing repeatedly in their first debate of the 2016 election, as the two tried to convince Americans they had the right answers on jobs, economic growth and terrorism.

Was there a winner? Let’s take a quick look at the debate.

1. No knockout, but maybe a slight edge to Clinton – The campaign for President certainly didn’t end by any means here at Hofstra, but there were a number of Republicans who saw a slight [More]

Clinton, Trump spar in Hofstra debate

  • 11:26 pm Monday, September 26th, 2016 by Jamie Dupree

In the first of three debates before the November elections, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton battled over who would make the best commander-in-chief, as Trump said Clinton did not have the “stamina” to be President, while Clinton assailed Trump’s economic plans, saying they would be a boon to the wealthy.

“It’s trickle-down economics all over again,” Clinton said in a familiar refrain about Republican economic policies, which she labeled, “Trumped-Up, Trickle-Down.”

Trump responded by accusing Clinton of looking to do one thing – increase taxes.

“You’re going to raise taxes big league,” Trump said, as he repeatedly tried to portray Clinton as the [More]

From Hempstead, New York –

As Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton get set to meet in the first of their three debates, all sorts of different story lines are possible tonight on stage at Hofstra University.

Let’s take a look at what might – and might not – happen in this high stakes political showdown.

1. Which Donald Trump will debate? – This is a serious question. Do we get the calm and measured Trump that we have seen on the campaign trail and in other events of late? Or do we get the free-wheeling, loud and off-the-cuff Trump, who [More]

Behind the scenes at the Presidential debate

  • 11:28 am Monday, September 26th, 2016 by Jamie Dupree

From Hempstead, New York –

The campus of Hofstra University is quiet today when it comes to regular college classes, but in terms of politics, it is bubbling and buzzing away as the center of the U.S. Election Universe, as this school prepares to host the first debate between Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump.

As I made my way to the campus this morning, there was the usual amount of security and different hoops to jump through – when I picked up my press credential, they sternly warned me and other reporters not to take any pictures and send it out [More]

Trump, Clinton to face off in first debate

  • 11:28 pm Sunday, September 25th, 2016 by Jamie Dupree

From Hempstead, New York –

In what may well turn out to be one of the most-watched events in American political history, Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton will gather here at Hofstra University for the first of three face-to-face debate showdowns over the next four weeks, with the race tightening in many state and national polls.

Both sides did their best in recent days to set expectations, raise questions about the other candidate, and supposedly leak out tidbits about what their candidate is – or is not doing to get ready for these debates.

“I don’t envy team Clinton right now,” said [More]

Cruz reverses course, will vote for Trump

  • 3:57 pm Friday, September 23rd, 2016 by Jamie Dupree

Two months after being booed by GOP delegates when he refused to endorse Donald Trump at the Republican National Convention, Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) on Friday gave his backing to the GOP nominee.

“I’ve made this decision for two reasons,” Cruz wrote in a post on Facebook. “First, last year, I promised to support the Republican nominee. And I intend to keep my word.”

In his statement, Cruz acknowledged that he has had “areas of significant disagreement” with Trump, but the Texas Senator said, “by any measure Hillary Clinton is wholly unacceptable.”

It was a different Cruz at the GOP convention [More]

Clinton targets Trump over remarks on women

  • 8:43 am Friday, September 23rd, 2016 by Jamie Dupree

Making a direct play for the votes of women in November, Hillary Clinton’s campaign issued a new ad on Friday that goes back to something that’s been tried before by the critics of Donald Trump, an ad that uses Trump’s own words against him.

“I’d look at her, right in that fat ugly face of hers,” the video shows Trump saying, as the campaign ad switches among young girls, looking at themselves in the mirror.

“A person who is flat chested, is very hard to be a ten,” Trump is heard saying in a radio interview that has been talked about before.

Vowing to be a voice for all Americans, Donald Trump on Thursday zeroed in again on the issue of law and order, arguing not enough is being done to safeguard inner city neighborhoods, as he once again appealed to Hispanic and Black voters to support his campaign for President.

“The rioting in our streets is a threat to all peaceful citizens, and it must be ended and ended now,” Trump said to cheers in Chester Township, Pennsylvania, just southwest of Philadelphia.

In a speech in Pennsylvania, Donald Trump said the unrest following the shooting of a black man in Charlotte, North Carolina sends a troubling message about the United States, as he urged authorities to bring violence in the streets to a “very rapid end.”

“Our country looks bad to the world, especially when we are supposed to be the world’s leader,” the Republican nominee said.

“How can we lead if we can’t control our own cities?” Trump asked in a speech to an energy group in Pittsburgh.

  • 11:02 am Thursday, September 22nd, 2016 by Jamie Dupree

Frustrated by the lack of cooperation and limited answers from those who worked to set up and maintain a private email server for Hillary Clinton during her time as Secretary of State, Republicans on a House panel voted to find Clinton aide Bryan Pagliano in Contempt of Congress, as for the second time in a week, the former IT worker refused to honor a subpoena for his testimony at a House hearing.

The contempt vote on the House Oversight Committee was straight along party lines.

“Subpoenas are not optional,” grumbled Rep. Jason Chaffetz (R-UT), as he moved ahead with a contempt [More]
