Clinton Defends Work of Family Foundation



    Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton speaks during a campaign event at Truckee Meadows Community College, in Reno, Nev., on Aug. 25, 2016.

    Hillary Clinton is defending the work of her family foundation, saying the organization needs more time to ensure the continuity of their programs. 

    If elected, Clinton said she'll take additional steps to make sure there are no conflicts of interest between her administration and the global charitable network founded by her husband. 

    Winding down the programs and finding partners, she said, takes time. 

    "We're going to make sure we don't undermine the excellence and the results," she said in an interview with MSNBC's "Morning Joe.".

    Speaking at a rally in Ohio on Oct. 20, 2016, Donald Trump said that he would accept the presidential election results if they were in his favor. "I would like to promise and pledge to all of my voters and supporters and to all the people of the United Staes that I will totally accept the results of this great and historic presidential election -- if I win,” Donald Trump said, emphasizing the last three words by pointing into the crowd. The rally was held the day following the final debate, during which the issue of whether he would accept the election results came up. At the debate, he said he would have to wait and see what the results were. (Published Thursday, Oct. 20, 2016)
