    Mr. Dole is the only former Republican presidential nominee who backs Mr. Trump after 2005 video Former U.S. Sen. Bob Dole said he is standing by Donald Trump after a decade-old recording emerged in which the Republican presidential nominee speaks in crude sexual terms about women. Mr. Dole, the Republican Party’s presidential pick in 1996, is the only former GOP nominee to express support for Mr. Trump. Reached by phone on Saturday, Mr. Dole said he had “great respect” for Sen. John McCain of Arizona, who said earlier in the day that he would no longer support the party’s 2016...

    Trump's response makes perfect sense to somebody putting out a sales pitch, and the outrage is completely phony. Trump is suggesting that the folks in the crowd are strong as he pivots to the discussion of mental health issues, because, frankly, a lot of people who need help don't actually want to admit it. He's providing an answer to these veterans without suggesting to them that any of them in particular need to take advantage of it. It's actually a clever way of approaching the discussion that somebody with Trump's background might understand and somebody who has spent his or...

    The first question came from a veteran who asked Hillary Clinton about her reckless handling of classified material. John Lester: As a Naval flight officer I held the top secret sensitive compartmentalized information clearance. And that provided me access with materials and information highly sensitive to our war fighting capabilities. Had I communicated this information not following the prescribed protocols I would have been prosecuted and imprisoned. Secretary Clinton, how can you expect those such as myself who are and were trusted with America’s most sensitive information to have any confidence in your leadership as president when you clearly corrupted...

    435 Hillary Clinton arrived 37 minutes late for her speech to the American Legion conference in Cincinnati today, after rocking the night away at a fundraiser with Jimmy Buffett, Paul McCartney, and Jon Bon Jovi in the Hamptons in New York. Conference organizers were forced to fill the time gap with music and videos while military veterans waited in the audience for her arrival. Clinton was scheduled to take the stage at noon, but it wasn’t until 12:37 p.m. that a conference organizer introduced her.

    “Hillary Clinton has shown she is fundamentally unequipped to further the national security interests of the United States and stand up for our veterans. As Secretary of State, she put our country’s diplomacy up for sale to Clinton Foundation donors and exposed classified information on more than 2,000 occasions on her secret email server. And whether it was her votes against veterans medical care in the U.S. Senate or her claims that the ongoing VA wait time crisis wasn't 'widespread,’ Hillary Clinton is completely out-of-touch with veterans issues and the systemic mismanagement that has persisted under President Obama’s failed leadership....

    Hillary Clinton pitched her foreign policy to Republican voters in a speech to the American Legion on Wednesday, arguing that she would best uphold American values and protect national security interests. At the veterans' group annual convention in Cincinnati, the Democratic presidential nominee called the United States an "exceptional nation," and accused Republican rival Donald Trump of thinking that approach is "insulting to the rest of the world." Clinton said the country has a "unique and unparalleled ability to be a force for peace and progress." She questioned Trump's support for the military and hit him for his last-minute trip...

    Republican nominee Donald Trump enjoyed a warmer welcome from the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) in Charlotte, North Carolina than his rival Hillary Clinton received on Monday. The New York Republican told the crowd that spending time with veterans has been the “greatest honor of this campaign.” “Our veterans are the bravest and the finest people on earth,” Trump said, as he pledged to work with the VFW if elected president. “Our most basic commitment to provide health and medical care [to veterans] has been violated completely.” “The other candidate in this race, crooked Hillary Clinton, […] has a much...

    Obama decided to commemorate Memorial Day (after denouncing the US military from Vietnam to Japan) by calling for "good healthcare" for veterans. President Obama called for veterans to receive better healthcare and good-paying jobs during a Memorial Day speech at the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier in Arlington National Cemetery. “We have to be there not only when we need them, but when they need us,” Obama told the crowd of survivors who have lost loved ones in battle.

    Hillary Clinton's campaign on Tuesday will launch a multi-pronged communications effort to trash Donald Trump's record on veterans' issues and undermine the billionaire's news conference touting the money he's raised for veterans' causes in recent months. The campaign will host a national press call, release statements and unleash surrogates in key battleground states armed with talking points and opposition research to highlight Trump's past disparaging remarks about veterans, his Veterans Administration reform plans, and his months-long refusal to fully account for the funds he raised in January for veterans' charities, according to plans the Clinton campaign shared with CNN.
