New Clinton voter drive aimed at Latinos
Published in Ahram Online on 15 - 08 - 2016

Hillary Clinton's campaign is launching a new effort to tap into the political power of young, undocumented immigrants.
She's hoping to capitalize on Donald Trump's promises to deport them.
Clinton's national voter registration program is being launched on the four year anniversary of President Barack Obama's 2012 executive order that temporarily shielded some young immigrants brought to the country illegally as children.
Organizers will remind voters that a Trump presidency would end that program, according to the campaign. It's already at risk after a deadlocked Supreme Court decision in June.
The 730,000 young people known as DREAMERs are prohibited from voting but they've helped mobilize many Latinos who can.
The program is part of an effort by Clinton to woo the record 27.3 million Latinos eligible to vote in 2016.

Donald Trump's campaign is on a tear against the media just as his GOP backers are urging him — again — to focus his attacks on his Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton.
Trump's campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, on Sunday blamed news organizations for the GOP nominee's difficult week, saying the press focused on a pair of Trump comments for days rather than doing more stories about the economic plan Trump announced.
Dominating news last week were Trump's remark that Second Amendment backers could "do something" if Hillary Clinton is elected president and appoints liberal judges. He also insisted on a plain falsehood, that President Barack Obama "founded" the Islamic State group, multiple times.
Trump went on a Twitter rant against the press, complaining that the "disgusting" media is not showing the crowd size of his rallies and is putting "false meaning into the words I say." He also called a New York Times story Sunday about his struggling campaign "fiction."

Donald Trump's running mate, Mike Pence, says the Republican presidential candidate will offer "real specifics" this week on how make the country safer.
Pence declined to preview Trump's plan in an interview on "Fox News Sunday," saying only that Trump will offer a "change of direction" in counterterrorism policies.
Trump has called President Barack Obama the "founder" of the Islamic State group. Pence says Trump was trying to make the point that Obama is to blame for the group's rise in power.
Pence also brushed off a recent letter from the nation's top national security experts, all Republicans, who say Trump can't be trusted as president. He said he understands that "people in the establishment" may have "anxiety about the clear-eyed leadership" Trump will bring.

Connecticut has not been in Republican hands since George H.W. Bush won the state in 1988. No matter, Donald Trump says as he promises to pursue the Democratic stronghold.
Trump told a crowd gathered for a Saturday evening rally in a sweltering Fairfield gym that he was making "a big play" for Connecticut.
Still, campaigning in Connecticut is raising eyebrows among many Republicans nervous about Trump's slipping poll numbers in a series of key swing states and battlegrounds — and even some usual GOP turf.
The wealthy southern coast of Connecticut, made up of tony New York City suburbs, has long been fertile fundraising ground and Trump held an event nearby before the rally.
