(CNN) – Less than 50 days until Election Day and a bare-knuckle fight to the finish is on. The latest round on keeping Americans safe.

“Hillary Clinton talks tougher about my supporters than she does about Islamic terrorists,” said Donald Trump.

Donald Trump is once again questioning whether Hillary Clinton can go the distance. Poking fun at her recent bout with pneumonia and showing off his busy campaign schedule saying in a tweet, “Hillary Clinton is taking the day off again. She needs the rest. Sleep well, Hillary, see you at the debate.”

Clinton is not exactly napping. She is prepping for their first debate and making it clear she knows what’s coming, “I can take that kind of stuff. I have been at this and, you know, I understand it’s a contact sport. But I am not going to take what he says about everybody else, you know. His attacks on african-americans and immigrants and Muslims and woman and people with disabilities. It’s just something we cannot tolerate.”

In the aftermath of the terror in New York, Trump is not backing off his fiery rhetoric,

Keeping the door open to the profiling of Arabs and Muslims if he’s elected president, even as he is denying it.

Trump and his son, Donald Trump Junior, are continuing to sound the alarm over the flow of Syrian refugees into the U.S.

Trump Junior said in a tweet, if I had a bowl of skittles and I told you just three would kill you would you take a handful? That’s our Syrian refugee problem.

The makers of skittles were not amused saying in a statement: “skittles are candy. Refugees are people. We don’t feel it’s an appropriate analogy.”

A former aide to president Obama responded by tweeting the image of a bloodied Syrian boy, but Trump says it’s Clinton who doesn’t get it, “Where is her condemnation of these people? Where is her condemnation of these countries?”

Trump is also facing serious new questions about his charitable foundation.

“Washington Post” is reporting the trump foundation spent more than a quarter million dollars to settle lawsuits.

Including 120 thousand dollars in fines he racked up in a dispute over the placement of a flagpole at his Florida resort Mar-a-Lago.

Potential violation of U.S. tax laws.  One dispute he hasn’t settled is with the bush family.

After years of trump’s taunts aimed at his family, the former republican president George H.W. Bush reportedly will vote for Hillary Clinton.

So says former Maryland lieutenant governor Kathleen Kennedy Townsend. Who said in a facebook post, “The president told me he’s voting for Hillary!”
