Election tension appears to be intensifying across the US. A historic black church in Mississippi was burned and spray painted with “ Vote Trump” graffiti only days before the poll.
With the the racist movement the Ku Klux Klan now declaring for Donald Trump, President Obama used it to attack the Republican candidate:
“If you disrespect women before you are elected president, you will disrespect women when you are in office. If you accept the support of Klan sympathizers, the Klan, and hesitate when asked about that support, then you’ll tolerate that support when you’re in office.”
Obama was out promoting Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton who like her rival Trump was out stumping up support on a whirlwind tour of Swing States.
While Clinton was in Arizona, Trump was in Florida. The billionaire is now on the offensive after FBI disclosures seriously damaged his rival . He’s now keen not to spark any negative publicity for himself.
“In six days we are going to win the great state of Florida and we are going to win the White House (…) No side tracks, Donald. Nice and easy. Because I’ve been watching Hillary the past few days, she’s totally unhinged. We don’t want any of that. She has become unhinged,” Trump told supporters in Florida.

An average of polls are putting Clinton in the lead – if only just. But with signs that the race is tightening financial markets have become rattled as investors start to factor in the possibility that the New York businessman might just pull off a victory on Nov 8.
