Republicans: No honeymoon if Clinton wins

The election is 12 days away but Republicans are already promising years of investigations and blocked nominees if Hillary Clinton wins.

Rep. Jason Chaffetz, the Utah Republican who chairs the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, says he has lined up enough material from Clinton's four years as secretary of state for two years of probes.

What Trump said about Melania

Trump delivered the news in a sit-down interview alongside Melania on ABC's "Good Morning America," their first joint appearance since a cascade of allegations of sexual assault against the Republican presidential nominee, which were also discussed.

Asked by host George Stephanopoulos if she wants "to get out there yourself and help (Trump) out in the final two weeks," Melania Trump said "we'll see" before Trump jumped in.

Trump paused campaign for hotel launch

But the Republican nominee wasn't exactly taking time off the campaign trail. Instead, he used his private business to prop up his campaign.

Taking the podium to tout his new hotel as "one of the great hotels of the world," the billionaire, who has touted his business success as a key qualification for assuming the presidency, quickly turned the corporate-themed ribbon-cutting into a campaign event, albeit far from any of the battleground states he needs to win to clinch the presidency.

Ex-congressman: 'If Trump loses, I'm grabbing my musket'

Walsh, a former tea party congressman from Illinois who is now a conservative talk radio host, tweeted, "On November 8th, I'm voting for Trump. On November 9th, if Trump loses, I'm grabbing my musket. You in?"

Walsh did not immediately respond to a CNN request for comment. But he did respond to CNN's Jake Tapper via Twitter when he asked: "What exactly does that mean?"

"It means protesting. Participating in acts of civil disobedience. Doing what it takes to get our country back," he responded to Tapper.

TV anchor accused of being fascinated by sex

The Republican claimed she showed "bias" for mentioning the groping allegations against Donald Trump.

Ms Kelly retorted she was not fascinated by sex but by who was going to be in the White House.

The Fox News journalist has previously angered Mr Trump for questioning his attitude towards women.

Mr Trump publicly criticised Ms Kelly on a number of occasions after she asked about derogatory remarks he had made - including calling women "fat pigs" - during the Republican primaries in 2015.

Trump: Clinton's foreign policy plan would start WWIII

He said the US should focus on defeating the so-called Islamic State rather than convincing Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to stand down.

Mrs Clinton has been proposing a no-fly zone over Syria, which some say could lead to conflict with Russian jets.

The Clinton campaign accused Mr Trump of "playing to Americans' fears".

Mr Trump also attacked Republicans for not uniting behind his candidacy.

"If we had party unity, we couldn't lose this election to Hillary Clinton," he told Reuters news agency at Trump National Doral golf resort in Miami, Florida.

Elizabeth Warren rips Trump over Tic Tacs

In a video released earlier this month, the Republican nominee said he needed Tic Tacs before talking with "Access Hollywood's" Billy Bush on a hot mic about how he can do anything to women because he is a celebrity.

"I've gotta use some Tic Tacs, just in case I start kissing her. You know I'm automatically attracted to beautiful -- I just start kissing them. It's like a magnet. Just kiss. I don't even wait," Trump said.

Warren, and most every Democrat as well as many Republicans, took issue with the comments that have now rocked Trump's campaign.

US election: Trump outlines plan for first 100 days

With 17 days until the election, much of the recent focus has been on controversies linked to his campaign.

But in a speech in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, he sought to highlight changes he would introduce.

Among them were restrictions on lobbyists and a renegotiation on trade and climate change deals.

Mrs Clinton and running mate Tim Kaine appeared at events on Saturday in Pennsylvania, a key battleground state in the race for the White House.

White powder at Clinton campaign HQ 'non-hazardous'

Clinton campaign workers had opened an envelope containing the white substance Friday, police said.

The envelope had first been delivered to Clinton's midtown Manhattan office and opened there, said Lt. Thomas Antonetti of the New York Police Department. It was then transferred to her Brooklyn campaign headquarters. The reason why it had been taken there was unclear.

But it resulted in the evacuation of the building's 11th floor during the evening. Another floor used by the Clinton campaign in the building remained operational during the incident.

Trump to make 'closing argument,' lay out plan for first 100 days

Trump is set to offer up the key principles and policies driving his presidential campaign in a speech Saturday morning in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania.

The location is forever etched in American lore given that it was the battlefield where President Abraham Lincoln delivered his Gettysburg Address, though Trump will not speak at precisely the same spot.

Trump, speaking on Fox News Friday night, and his campaign aides declined to offer any substantive details of what he will address in the speech.
