Exclusive: Trump says Clinton policy on Syria would lead to World War Three
News ImageBy Steve Holland DORAL, Fla. (Reuters) - U.S. Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said on Tuesday that Democrat Hillary Clinton's plan for Syria would "lead to World War Three," because of the potential for conflict with military forces from nuclear-armed Russia. In an interview focused largely on foreign policy, Trump said defeating Islamic State is a higher priority than persuading Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to step down, playing down a long-held goal of U.S. policy.

The Iran Sanctions Act, or ISA, which expires on Dec. 31, allows trade, energy, defense and banking industry sanctions over Iran's nuclear program and ballistic missile tests.

Trump asks team to trim back transition efforts, focus on race: sources
News ImageBy Emily Flitter NEW YORK (Reuters) - Trailing in opinion polls, Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump has asked his campaign to cut back on work identifying candidates for key jobs in his would-be administration and focus instead on bolstering his chances on Election Day, according to two people familiar with the campaign's inner workings. After months of bitter battling, Trump's Democratic rival, Hillary Clinton, has a commanding lead in the race to win the Electoral College and claim the U.S. presidency on Nov. 8, according to the latest Reuters/Ipsos States of the Nation project results released on Saturday, which mirror other national polls. People working on Trump's White House transition, which is led by New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, have been asked by Trump to narrow down those efforts and refocus on the race, the sources, who asked not to be identified, said Tuesday.

Is Evan McMullins presidential candidacy just a protest, or something bigger?
News ImageBrynnley Pyne shows her support for a cardboard cutout of her candidate at an Evan McMullin rally in Salt Lake City. Its difficult to imagine Evan McMullin as an undercover CIA operative lurking in the shadows of South and Central Asia a decade ago, at the height of the U.S. wars in Afghanistan and Iraq. McMullin, the 40-year-old previously unknown Capitol Hill staffer who is the surprise presidential candidate of 2016, is everlastingly polite and remarkably normal-looking.

News ImageHillary Clinton and Donald Trump speak at the 71st Annual Alfred E. Smith Memorial Foundation Dinner on Oct. 20, 2016, in New York. What would be worse than electing Donald Trump (or, depending on your politics, Hillary Clinton) in November? A second four-year term! Its a pretty lame joke, but in the midst of the most bitter contest in modern presidential elections, it has a glint of humor.

The Possible Media Ambitions Behind the Trump Campaign's New Live Show
News ImageThe new nightly Facebook Live show that Trump advisers have launched ahead of the final two weeks of the campaign may signal a foray into a formal media presence, but the transition from political campaign to cable news show or even channel has been tried before, without great success. For his part, Trump has denied any post-election aspirations of becoming a media mogul. Speculation about the ultimate goal of the show and whether it could be the first iteration of some form of Trump TV has been fueled by reports that Trump's son-in-law Jared Kushner has had conversations about possibly forming a media property, though that has not been confirmed by the campaign.
