Hillary Clinton lays out her economic policy agenda, in a speech in Michigan, just days after Donald Trump did the same. Trump sticks to his latest claim, which is that President Obama and Clinton founded the Islamic State. Democratic House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi calls Trump’s comments “verbal poo poo”.  United Nations Syria envoy Staffan de MIstura says Russia’s plan for a daily three hour truce in Aleppo, Syria to allow humanitarian supplies to be trucked in is not enough. He says 48 hours at a time are needed to resupply the city’s beleaguered neighborhoods. State lawmakers are struggling to extend and expand on California’s landmark global warming legislation. Governor Jerry Brown is preparing to go to the ballot in 2018 if lawmakers fail to act.
