5 Things To Know For Your New Day — Tuesday, October 11
5 Things Trump Said In The Wake Of The 2nd Debate:
Donald Trump appeared on the campaign trail Monday for the first time after the most tumultuous weekend of his presidential bid — and a particularly nasty debate on Sunday.
Trump, however, showed no signs of backing down. Here’s a look at some of his most notable comments of the day.
‘More inappropriate things’
At his campaign event in Ambridge, Pennsylvania, Trump warned that if more embarrassing footage of the GOP nominee was released — a reference to the fallout over the 2005 leaked audio in which he could be heard making crude comments about women — he would retaliate.
“If they want to release more tapes saying inappropriate things, we’ll continue to talk about Bill and Hillary Clinton doing inappropriate things — there are so many of them, folks,” Trump said.
Members of several close-knit neighboring communities in Vermont are mourning five teenagers who died in a fiery car crash over the weekend after a vehicle traveling in the wrong direction struck them, authorities said.
Vermont Gov. Peter Shumlin ordered flags lowered to half-staff through Thursday for Eli Brookens, 16, of Waterbury, Mary Harris and Cyrus Zschau, both 16, of Moretown, Lim Hale and Janie Cozzi, both 15, from Fayston.
“The loss of five young Vermonters in such a senseless tragedy is heartbreaking,” Shumlin said. “Vermont is a community, and today we share the sadness and loss of the families and friends of these teens.”
Missing Kim Kardashian West On Social Media:
This is the least of Kim Kardashian West her followers have ever seen.
It’s been more than a week since the reality star was robbed at gunpoint in Paris and she’s maintaining a social media blackout as the investigation continues.
Police have suggested Kardashian West’s prolific social posting about her life and wealth may have attracted the robbers in the multi-million dollar heist.
She documented her time in Paris, from getting a facial to visiting fashion shows, meticulously. Kardashian West’s last postings on Snapchat, Twitter and Instagram came hours before her ordeal.
Cholera Fears Rise In Haiti After Hurricane Matthew:
Hurricane Matthew has left Haiti, but the danger is far from over as the number of cholera cases now is on the rise.
Haiti has been plagued with the waterborne disease since 2010, after UN soldiers accidentally brought it to the country in the aftermath of a major earthquake that year. The World Health Organization reported 80,000 cases in Haiti since the initial outbreak — and 770 new cases per week in 2016.
Now the destruction brought by Matthew has accelerated the existing epidemic and undermined the strides made in fighting the disease, the country’s leader said.
US Death Toll From Matthew Climbs To 21:
Rescue crews in the Carolinas worked methodically throughout the day on Monday, plucking people to safety from the flooding left by Hurricane Matthew’s deadly haymaker.
Responders pulled people from their submerged homes, situated them in rafts or choppers and whisked them to safe and dry ground.
