Trump and Clinton did not make any effort to hide their disdain for one another. The two did not even exchange the traditional handshake as they walked onto the stage.
Excerpts from Clinton’s speeches, which she refused to release during her primary contests against Sen. Bernie Sanders, were among more than 2,000 private emails published Friday by the anti-secrecy website Wikileaks.
While Hillary Clinton took a victory lap of sorts, hammering her opponent over his unreleased tax returns, Trump went on Twitter andthe friendly confines of Fox News to declare himself the winner and threaten an escalation of attacks in the next face-to-faceencounter.
Whether the reason is memory lapse or a desire to be prepared should armed terrorists once again try to commandeer an aircraft, the seizure of a record 2,653 firearms last year at airport checkpoints is but one aspect of an evolving security panorama as the nation passes the 15-year anniversary of the Sept. 11 attacks.
