‘We love you all the way to the White House!’: Trump meets his most enthusiastic fan yet, who just happens to be Hispanic… but he swears it isn’t a stunt.

Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump kisses a Hispanic woman who he brought up on stage during a rally Thursday, Oct. 8, 2015, in Las Vegas. Trump spoke at the Treasure Island hotel and casino on the Strip. (John Locher, Associated Press) Today’s Donald Trump news: GOP front-runner Donald Trump has contended for months that he’s popular with Hispanic voters, despite comments he’s made about Mexico and his proposal to build a wall on the U.S. Bergdahl, who’s a traitor, a no-good traitor, who should have been executed,” Trump said to cheers at a rowdy rally inside a packed Las Vegas theater at the casino-hotel Treasure Island.-Mexican border to keep out illegal immigrants – was speaking about his current cover of People when he noticed the woman in the audience waving the magazine. It was practically an aside in a litany of complaints at the end of a more than hourlong, free-wheeling speech that included a large dose of media-bashing and a claim that he was behind Rep.

Trump then asked her if they had ever met before and if this was a setup, but the excited woman cut in, arms outstretched: “I’m Hispanic and I vote for Mr. Instead, he has described immigration reform as the central theme of his campaign, vowing to deport all of the approximately 11 million illegal immigrants currently believed to be in the U.S. if he is elected president. His attorney, Eugene Fidell, said in a statement that Trump “has become a broken record on this subject.” Bergdahl has been accused of leaving his post in southeastern Afghanistan in June 2009.

The most recent compilation of major national polls by Real Clear Politics shows Trump in first place, where he’s been since mid-summer, six percentage points ahead of his closest rival, retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson. In a scathing editorial on Sunday, the national Spanish-language newspaper La Opinion accused Trump of lying and said he ‘chickened out’ by cancelling his appearance Thursday. ‘This will definitely not help improve Trump’s image among Latinos,’ the paper editorialized. ‘After bashing immigrants and hiding behind those who agree with him, he adds “coward” to the many adjectives that describe him.’

The speech was punctuated by shouts of support from the crowd that filled about 1,620 seats in the Las Vegas Strip casino theater normally reserved for acrobatic Cirque du Soleil productions. His speech spanned a spider-web of topics that included his disdain for media coverage, many of his fellow Republican presidential candidates and current political leadership as well as Thursday’s news that McCarthy had dropped out of a race for House speaker. “You know, Kevin McCarthy is out. You know that, right?” he asked the crowd. “And they’re giving me a lot of credit for that because I said you really need somebody very, very tough and very smart. … We need smart, we need tough, we need the whole package.” Trump last week cast doubt on McCarthy’s qualifications after the No. 2 House Republican slipped up and touted the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s success in knocking down Democratic presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton’s poll numbers — a gaffe that prompted a swift rebuke from his GOP colleagues: CNN Trump’s glee over the discombobulation of Republican congressional leaders comes just one month after he signed a loyalty oath to the party, vowing not to run as an independent in the event that he does not become the Republicans’ presidential nominee. Reince Priebus, the chairman of the Republican National Committee, had come to Trump’s marmoreal turf, which helped seal the deal. (Trump did add, during that day’s press conference, a kind of power-assertion: “I told him I don’t know it’s appropriate, Reince, for you to be here.”) And yet, despite that agreement, Trump has massaged the McCarthy news as a barometer pointing the way up—for him.

So much for Republican Party unity: Bloomberg Politics Trump clarified Friday that he is “never” getting out of the 2016 race. “You know the amazing thing — I was with Chuck Todd, who was very good, and I did ‘Meet the Press’ and he said, ‘Well, would you get out?’ and I made this statement, ‘Well, you know, if I could see I wasn’t going to win, and if my numbers were really terrible, and if you wouldn’t call and everybody’s not calling, if I saw it wasn’t going to happen, of course I would,’ ” Mr. Just in case you need a brief refresher, El Chapo, real name Joaquin Guzman, is the reputed drug kingpin who escaped from a Mexican prison via a motorcycle in an underground track for about a mile. News, a South American television news network claims that Guzman added the bounty to threats he previously made against the New York real estate mogul. Most news outlets reporting on the matter have qualified the supposed bounty as being “dead or alive,”but unidentified sources close to the drug lord suggest “he wants Donald Trump dead and will pay any amount of money to have Donald Trump’s head:” Mediaite
