Hillary Clinton says rival Donald Trump is spreading hateful messages online by retweeting white supremacists and anti-Semitic tweets and images to his millions of Twitter followers.
Clinton delivered a speech Thursday in Reno, Nevada, highlighting Trump's support within the "alt-right" movement, which is often associated with efforts on the far right to preserve "white identity."
Donald Trump confronted head-on allegations that he is racist on Thursday, defending his hard-line approach to immigration while trying to make the case to minority voters that Democrats have abandoned them.
His poll numbers slipping behind Hillary Clinton's with less than three months until Election Day, Trump tried to get ahead of the Democratic nominee, who addressed a rally in Reno, Nevada minutes later, warning that the Republican Party is being taken over by "a radical fringe," motivated by "prejudice and paranoia." Her speech focused on the so-called "alt-right" movement, which is often associated with efforts on the far right to preserve "white identity," oppose multiculturalism and defend "Western values."
Olympic swimmer Ryan Lochte will be summoned to testify at a hearing in front of the Brazilian justice in the wake of his altercation in Rio.
Lochte initially claimed he and three other teammates were held up by armed robbers early Aug. 14 at a gas station following a night of drinking and clubbing.
Police are closing their investigation into the criminal case this week and will hand it over to Rio's public prosecutor, Detective Clemente Braune told NBC News. A formal document is expected to be sent to a U.S. court asking for cooperation in summoning the swimmer to Brazil.
Lochte left Rio for the United States as the scandal unfolded and Brazilian authorities say he fabricated the events of what happened.
If he doesn't show up to the hearing, the process will continue without him, officials said.
An attorney for Lochte did not immediately respond to a request for comment from NBC News.
