For America's wealthiest families, the presidential campaign presents a stark choice: A big tax increase if Hillary Clinton wins the election -- or a big tax cut if Donald Trump wins.
 
Kelly Ayotte cannot escape the shadow of Donald Trump. Even here, among the fried dough stands and pig pens of New Hampshire's summer fairs, the Republican senator faces difficult questions about her party's presidential nominee, a celebrity businessman who threatens to weigh down swing state Republicans at every level this fall.
 
Donald Trump on Monday painted the Middle East as an oasis of stability before Hillary Clinton's tenure as secretary of state, arguing that she and President Barack Obama "launched" the Islamic State group onto the world.
 
Rows of empty seats, green water, controlled explosions, stray bullets, the killing of a young policeman in a favela, muggings of team officials, an attack on a media bus, spotty weather, snarled traffic, long travel distances and lack of a Carnival atmosphere.
 
New Jamaican champion makes her mark
The new Olympic champion caught her country's flag from out of the stands, unfurled it and fumbled a bit as she tried to drape it over her shoulders.
 
It's the media's fault. That's out of context. Never said it in the first place. Donald Trump's claim Friday that he was merely being "sarcastic" in accusing U.S. President Barack Obama of establishing a terrorist group was his latest attempt to blame others for the uproar over what he says.

Donald Trump changed some of his facts to fit his agenda Monday, pitching shades of truth and misconceptions in what was billed as a major economic policy speech.
 
Britain is woefully short of one thing it desperately needs in its high-stakes divorce from the European Union: experienced trade negotiators.
 
Outside the Annin Flagmakers factory in this perennial swing state, a summer of discontent is brewing. They feel it inside, too -- national divides that seem to grow deeper each passing week. Yet as their hands glide over broad stripes and sew bright stars to craft the most unifying American symbol, the workers sound far more alike than different.
