On the campaign trail this week, Hillary Clinton stressed her platform in a number of states, amid swirling rumors about her health, questions about her ongoing email scandal and controversy over what will happen to the Clinton Foundation if she is elected president.

Meanwhile, Donald Trump gave a number of speeches from a teleprompter and announced a big campaign staffing shake-up. Paul Manafort resigned as Trump’s campaign chairman Friday morning.
