Clinton attacks Trump’s business record, while Trump goes after Clinton’s time in office
US presidential hopefuls Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump are taking aim at each other in their latest campaign adverts.
Mrs Clinton is focusing in on Trump’s business record, claiming he would risk bankrupting America like some of his businesses.
Speaking in Atlantic City, next to the now-closed Trump Plaza casino, she told a crowd: “What he did here in Atlantic City is exactly what he will do if he wins in November.”
“He’s suggested we could just default on our national debt, like he defaulted on his business debt.”
“Make no mistake – he’s just asking for forgiveness, he’s just hoping we’ll forget.”
“The people he’s trying to convince to vote for him now are the same people he’s been exploiting for years – working people, small business people trying to support their families,” she added.

Meanwhile, Trump took aim at Clinton’s time as US Secretary of State.
It follows on from an FBI investigation, which found charges should not be brought against Mrs Clinton for using a private e-mail server during her time in office.
Of 30,000 e-mails Mrs Clinton handed over to the State Department, 110 contained information that was classified at the time she sent or received them.
FBI director James Comey said there was no “clear evidence“ Mrs Clinton and her colleagues intended to break any laws.
“There is evidence that they were extremely careless in their handing of very sensitive, highly-classified information,” he said.
“Seven e-mail chains concern matters that we classified at the top secret, special access programme at the time they were sent and received,” he added.
This finding seems to be at odds with Mrs Clinton’s statements that none of them were classified at the time.
But Mr Trump has made this a centre point of his campaign advert:
