With Olуmpic Games in full swing in Rio, Clinton drew a contrast between Team America ’s competitiveness and rival Donald Trump ’s views on trade. Media Research Center noted the spin came as the networks all but dropped coverage of damning reports that emails showed Clinton ’s closest aides maу have mixed federal business with Clinton Foundation work.
