Arizona Senator John McCain ripped through Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's controversial comments about the family of a slain Muslim-American soldier, and urged Americans not to associate Republicans with Trump's views.
"While our party has bestowed upon him the nomination, it is not accompanied by unfettered license to defame those who are the best among us," McCain, a Vietnam veteran and former Republican presidential nominee, said in a statement.
The controversy stems from Trump's questioning of Ghazala Khan, the mother of U.S. Army Capt. Humayun Khan, a Muslim-American who was killed in 2004 by a car bomb in Iraq. more >>

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump is garnering controversy over his recent comments calling upon Russia to find and release Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton's deleted emails.
Right before the Democratic National Convention, Wikileaks released emails it took from Democrat leadership, which among other things showed party officials discussing ways to guarantee a Clinton victory in the primary season.

Secretary of State John Kerry has insisted that although some people have a hard time believing it, dangerous chemicals found in refrigerators and air conditioners pose as big of a threat as the Islamic State terror group to the world.
"Yesterday, I met in Washington with 45 nations — defense ministers and foreign ministers — as we were working together on the challenge of [the Islamic State], and terrorism," Kerry said on Friday during climate deal negotiations in Vienna, according to The Washington Examiner.
