The Democratic candidate for the White House, Hillary Clinton, had to pause her speech due to a coughing fit during a rally this Monday – and blamed her Republican rival. "Every time I think about Trump I get allergic," said the ex-secretary of state, amid the laughter of her audience of supporters.
In response to the joke, the manager of Trump's campaign, Kellyanne Conway, used the incident to criticize the distance Clinton maintains towards the press. "Must be allergic to media. Finally spent a minute w/ them," wrote Conway, in her Twitter profile. Hillary, who hasn't appeared at a large press conference since December, received journalists in her campaign plane on Monday.
During the interview in the plane, the Democrat commented that Trump has a "bizarre attraction" to dictators. In addition, she said she was worried about possible Russian interference in the American elections on November 8. U.S. intelligence agencies are investigating the possibility, which was raised after cyber attacks against the Democratic Party in July.
