NEW YORK (AP) — Donald Trump says he's "always had great relationships with the African-American community." He was speaking today to members of a new Republican Party initiative aimed at training young -- and largely minority -- volunteers to reach out to voters like them. At rallies over the last week, Trump has tried to paint Democratic policies as harmful to minority communities and urged them to give him a chance.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Clinton's campaign has released an online video that compiles footage of white supremacist leaders praising Donald Trump. The video comes ahead of a Clinton speech that will seek to attach Trump to the so-called "alt-right" movement that is often associated with efforts on the far right to preserve "white identity." Trump has been criticized for failing to immediately denounce the support that he's garnered from white nationalists and supremacist, including former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard David Duke. Trump's campaign says the Clinton video represents a "disgusting new low."

YOUNGSVILLE, La. (AP) — Louisiana's governor says he'll be asking Congress for more money to help people recover from the floods in the southern part of the state. Gov. John Bel Edwards today visited a neighborhood near Lafayette where every third or fourth house still has a pile of flood debris on the lawn, and occupants are still gutting and clearing damage. One woman told Edwards she has always paid her taxes on time, but now cannot get the help she needs.

CHARLESTON, W.Va. (AP) — U.S. Sen. Joe Manchin says he's concerned about skyrocketing prices for life-saving allergy injection pens made by a company headed by his daughter. The West Virginia Democrat says he plans a detailed review of drugmaker Mylan's response to criticism about the cost of EpiPens. Manchin's daughter, Heather Bresch, is CEO of Mylan. She told CNBC today that lowering the price wasn't an option. Manchin says he plans to work with others to reduce prescription drug prices.

PARIS (AP) — Apple says it is issuing a security update after powerful espionage software was found targeting an activist's iPhone in the Middle East. Computer forensics experts say the spyware takes advantage of three previously undisclosed weaknesses in Apple's mobile operating system to take complete control of iPhone handsets. Two reports published today outline how the spyware could compromise an iPhone with the tap of a finger. Apple said in a statement that it fixed the vulnerability immediately after learning about it.
