Martha Stewart: 'I'm voting for Clinton'; Trump 'totally unprepared'

"There is so much to know and so much to learn and so much diplomacy and kindness and introspection that goes with that kind of job," Stewart told CNNMoney during a luncheon for Andrea Bocelli's foundation Sunday. "And it does not exist in the world of Donald Trump."

For Stewart, the stakes are high and the only choice is Hillary Clinton.

Obama: Sexism may be hurting Clinton

"There's a reason why we haven't had a woman president; that we as a society still grapple with what it means to see powerful women," Obama said at a DNC fundraiser in New York City. "And it still troubles us in a lot of ways, unfairly, and that expresses itself in all sorts of ways."

Obama used his short speech at the event to praise Clinton while simultaneously ripping into Republican nominee Donald Trump.

"It's an infomercial. It's a reality show," Obama said of the Manhattan businessman. "This guy is not qualified to be president."

Obama: Would be 'personal insult' to legacy if black voters don't back Clinton

Addressing the Congressional Black Caucus gala for the last time as president, Obama warned that while his name would not be on the ballot in November, all of the progress that the country has made over the last eight years was on the line.

Trump lets Jimmy Fallon mess up his hair

And on Thursday, Jimmy Fallon asked if he could mess it up.

First, Trump winced and grimaced, shaking his head as the "Tonight Show" audience erupted in a smattering of applause and cheers.

Moments later, the Republican nominee relented.

"The answer is yes, but the people in New Hampshire, where I'm going to be in about an hour from now, I hope they're going to understand," Trump said. "Go ahead."

Trump's signature coif has long been the subject of intense scrutiny, including from those who've questioned whether Trump's do is the real thing.

24 turbulent hours for Trump's children

As the campaign enters its final stretch, some of Donald Trump's children are showing signs of impatience and struggling to stay on message.

In the past 24 hours, Ivanka Trump and Donald Trump Jr. have cut off interviews when pressed for answers on tough questions. Trump Jr. strayed from the campaign's talking point about the Republican nominee's tax returns -- that they'll be released once an IRS audit concludes -- when he said unveiling the documents would "detract" from his father's message.

US election: Donald Trump in excellent health, says his doctor

Mr Trump released the letter following a recent physical examination by Dr Harold N Bornstein.

The 70-year-old is listed as 6 foot 3 inches (1.9 metres) and weighs 236 pounds (107 kilos).

The letter comes as his rival Hillary Clinton returns to the campaign trail after time off with pneumonia, appearing briefly to reporters.

Boarding a plane in White Plains, New York, she spoke to journalists as she heads to North Carolina to hold a rally, her first campaign event since the weekend.

Hillary Clinton 'healthy and fit', says doctor

The statement said the Democratic presidential nominee "continues to improve" after a pneumonia diagnosis.

The disclosure came as her Republican rival Donald Trump released health data of his own on a medical chat show.

Clinton aides say she will return to the campaign trail on Thursday after falling ill in public at the weekend.

Both candidates, among the oldest ever to run for the White House, have been under intense pressure to share more medical information.

Trump issues pledge on medical records after Clinton diagnosis

Mr Trump said health had now become "an issue" in the election campaign.

Mrs Clinton was taken ill on Sunday at a 9/11 memorial ceremony and cancelled a campaign trip to California.

She will also be releasing new medical records to help ease concerns about her health, a campaign spokesman said.

"There's no other undisclosed condition. The pneumonia is the extent of it," Brian Fallon told MSNBC.

He said she would probably resume campaigning in the next few days.

Mrs Clinton said on Twitter she was "anxious" to return to the trail.


London Mayor Sadiq Khan hints he's with Clinton

Now he's embarking on a visit to North America and making it clear he doesn't care for Donald Trump's talk of a ban on those who share his faith, even though the GOP nominee has softened his stance on the issue, limiting it to Muslims coming from countries with heavy terrorist activity.

"I'm a firm believer in building bridges rather than walls," Khan said in an interview with CNN's Fareed Zakaria that aired Sunday.

Hillary Clinton stumbles -- will her campaign follow?

Her swoon Sunday at muggy Ground Zero -- and damaging video of Clinton lurching into the arms of her security detail -- dramatically turned the state of her health from conservative conspiracy theory into a genuine campaign issue.

The episode also exacerbates questions about transparency that have long dogged Clinton's White House bid after the campaign revealed the Democratic nominee is suffering from pneumonia -- a fact it kept quiet since Friday.
