Clinton camp: Trump has 'no plan' for IS

She called for an "intelligence surge", but pledged that there would be no ground troops in Syria or in Iraq "ever again". "You know, I wish the first time it was done correctly". Here are five important moments from that hour. And to Andrea Mitchell from NBC, who was trying to ask her something inaudible as Clinton was ready to stop: "I love you, Andrea". Clinton was repeatedly challenged on her controversial email use at the State Department and her vote as a senator for the 2003 invasion of Iraq.

He added: "Now, it's a very different system, and I don't happen to like the system".

"I would certainly not do it again; there are no excuses for it", she said. "There were no headers".

She said, "Nobody directs or inspires attacks against the United States and gets away with it".

The US now spends more than 600 billion dollars (£450 billion) a year on the military, more than the next seven countries combined.

But that wouldn't include committing more forces to the effort.

On Trump's suggestion that the USA should "take the oil" to defeat ISIS, Clinton smirked saying that is not how the fight against global terrorism will be fought and won.

"They will have 30 days to submit to the Oval Office a plan for soundly and quickly defeating ISIS", he told North Carolina voters.

"We believe that such a change can only be made by someone who has not been deeply involved with, and substantially responsible for, the hollowing out of our military and the burgeoning threats facing our country around the world", the military leaders wrote. Trump dismissed Allen, who led American forces against ISIS, as a "failed general".

Clinton also defended President Barack Obama's nuclear deal with Iran as one that is good for the Jewish state.

For months, Clinton broke with campaign tradition and flew separately from the reporters who follow her around the country, drawing criticism along the way for a roughly nine-month streak of avoiding any kind of formal news conference. An additional 4 percent said they would "somewhat" not consider voting for Trump or Clinton, 17 percent for Johnson, and 19 percent for Stein.

Trump's engagement with the Middle East, by contrast, would be to work with governments even if they were not necessarily strong on democracy, a senior aide said.

Trump did not describe on Wednesday the content of what he learned at the two classified briefings he has received since becoming the Republican presidential nominee.

The relationship between the media and the presidential nominees is vital.

"I think when he calls me brilliant I'll take the compliment, but it's not going to get him anywhere", Trump responded.

Calling him a "leader" who has "great control over his country, " Trump cited Putin's 82 percent approval rating in Russian Federation as a shield from an array of hostile global actions carried out by him. He caused a stir by defending a tweet that implied military sexual assault is a result of women serving in the military.

The poll suggests that the post-convention bounces have subsided and that Trump has weathered a hard August, in which he shuffled staff members, insulted a Gold Star family and confused voters about his immigration policy.
