The new birtherism: Trump says Hillary Clinton is ineligible to run for president

“She should not be allowed to run.” said Trump and  if that is the case, then neither should he be allowed to run. At the final presidential debate on Wednesday night, the moment that stood out the most was when Republican nominee Donald Trump refused to say he would accept the results of the election, no matter the outcome, and ensure a peaceful transition of power. It was an attack on one of the bedrock foundations of American democracy. But embedded in his continuing claim that the system is rigged against him, he rolled out […]
