Trump backs Milwaukee police as Clinton campaign denies health rumors

During a visit to the city of Milwaukee on Tuesday, US Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said that the initial investigation into Saturday's fatal shooting of a black man by a policeman, which sparked rioting, indicates that the shooting was justified. "It's law and order. We have to obey the laws or we don't have a country", Trump said, expressing support for law enforcement authorities nationwide. He later held a roundtable discussion with local leaders and the county sheriff but refused to allow journalists to attend.
Meanwhile, the campaign of Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton denied Tuesday a series of rumors alleging that she is in poor health, saying in a statement that "While it is dismaying to see the Republican nominee for president push deranged conspiracy theories in a foreign policy speech, it’s no longer surprising." Clinton's personal physician, Dr. Lisa Bardack, said that the nominee is in excellent health and that all of the reports to the contrary being spread online are fake.
