Trump Talks Immigration, Veterans Affairs During Ohio Speeches

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump says many people didn't understand part of his immigration speech Wednesday because of the enthusiastic crowd. It disappointed many Hispanic supporters who were hoping he'd tone down his divisive rhetoric on immigration. Trump yesterday told a crowd in Wilmington American jobs can be protected with tougher immigration policies.

Trump later addressed the American Legion Convention in Cincinnati, saying he plans to improve the Department of Veterans Affairs, starting with the naming of a new VA Secretary and launching an investigation into any wrongdoing.


Trump also said he will be uncompromising in the defense of the United States and its allies. His Democratic  rival, Hillary Clinton, addressed the convention on Wednesday.
