    Senator Kirsten Gillibrand, in her second day of campaigning in New Hampshire, issued a rebuke of what she called President Donald Trump's divisive language.

    The New York senator and Democratic presidential candidate told a crowd of about 450 people Saturday at Dartmouth College, her alma mater, that the president's worst offense since he was elected has been to "dehumanize people'' and create a climate of fear and hatred, especially toward immigrants.

    Gillibrand said Trump wants Americans "to be afraid of one another.'' She insisted "that's not who we are.''

    Gillibrand, who took questions from the audience, said she favors a single-payer health care system modeled on Medicare and would take on climate change by incentivizing the creation of renewable energy. She added that she was optimistic that "common sense'' gun laws would pass now that young voters are calling for change.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
