Clinton slams Trump in media session

She vowed to not send American ground troops into Iraq or Syria to fight the Islamic State group.

While experts look at the average of many polls to determine which candidate is in the lead, some individual polls have Trump leading Clinton by a small margin.

Salon, meanwhile, blasted Lauer, commenting that the only good question came from an audience member, pointing out that over and over again the moderator failed to ask the right questions ("NBC's Wasted Opportunity: The "Commander-in-Chief" Forum was a Complete Bust").

The appearances mark an intense, two-day focus on national security by Trump, who has offered tough rhetoric - but few details - on America's challenges overseas.

The United States now spends more than $600 billion a year on the military, more than the next seven countries combined.

Hillary Clinton is rolling out a list of endorsements from retired generals and admirals that trumps Donald Trump's list.

Overall, 53% of likely voters say they think the Democratic nominee will do a better job in the debates, while 43% expect her GOP rival to walk away the victor. "They view him as a danger and a risk". Among Trump's backers, 78% think he will emerge as the better debater and 18% expect Clinton to fare better. "It would have been easier to follow many of my law school classmates to a high-powered NY law firm, but the call to service rooted in my faith was just too powerful", she said.

They say that in attacking Trump, she is simply playing the hand she was dealt.

The forum, presented with the Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, could serve as a warm-up to the highly anticipated first presidential debate, scheduled for September 26 in NY.

"I will ask Congress to fully offset the cost of increased military spending".

While Trump has often complained that USA forces are not large enough or well-equipped, he's also said that he'd save money by cutting waste and ensuring that contractors aren't getting sweetheart deals due to their connections or lobbying efforts.

Trump's proposal to lift the sequester limits on military spending won praise from Republicans on Capitol Hill even as some acknowledged the reality that Democratic opposition might render it hard to achieve.

Trump told King both of them seem to be falling in the polls but "we'll see what happens".

The Trump campaign says he will outline plans to "add substantially" to the nation's arsenal of submarines, ships and combat troops in a Wednesday morning speech in Philadelphia.

Clinton's campaign is hoping to disqualify Trump with some military voters, aiming to cut into Trump's support among lean-Republican voters who prioritize national security. But she defended her support for USA military intervention to help oust a dictator in Libya, despite the chaotic aftermath.

But questions remain, even in his party.

And although Trump is on the losing side in this question, he fares better than nearly every Republican in the last 24 years.
