PORTLAND, Maine (AP) — Donald Trump is praising House Speaker Paul Ryan, whom he has thus far declined to endorse in his primary race. Trump told supporters at a rally in Maine that "Paul Ryan's a good guy." Trump said in an interview this week that he's "just not quite there yet" when it comes to endorsing Ryan, who has not shied away from criticizing the Republican nominee on a number of issues. Trump's running mate, Mike Pence, yesterday delivered a full-throated endorsement of Ryan on Wednesday, marking a break from the nominee.

Clinton said after touring an electric manufacturing company in Las Vegas: "Everything he's made he's made somewhere else. He's not put Americans to work." Clinton has been hitting Trump for manufacturing his branded products, including ties and clothing, at overseas factories.
WASHINGTON (AP) — After a slow start, it appears increasingly likely that the Obama administration will hit its goal of admitting 10,000 Syrian refugees into the United States before the end of September. State Department totals show that 2,340 Syrian refugees arrived last month. That's more than what occurred during the entire seven months after President Barack Obama directed his team to prepare for 10,000 admissions from the war-torn country. If the current pace holds, the president's target should be reached shortly before Obama heads to the United Nations to urge world leaders to admit more refugees.
