Trump hinting at assassination is a ‘casual inciting of violence’: Hillary Clinton denounced Donald Trump’s suggestion that gun owners could stop her from appointing liberal supreme court justices – pointing to it as the latest evidence of behaviour by him unbefitting of a presidential candidate. At a rally in Iowa on Wednesday, Clinton said the remark, which she called a “casual inciting of violence”, offered further proof that Trump does not have the temperament to be president. “Words matter, my friends,” Clinton said, drawing cheers from the crowd. “And if you are running to be president or if you are president of the United States, words can have tremendous consequences.”

One Ally Remains Firmly Behind Donald Trump: The N.R.A.: Donald J. Trump’s candidacy has driven away throngs of Republican elected officials, donors and policy experts. But not the National Rifle Association. With Mr. Trump increasingly isolated and hobbled by controversies of his own making, the powerful gun-rights group has emerged as one of his remaining stalwart allies in the Republican coalition: the institution on the right most aggressively committed to his candidacy, except for the Republican National Committee itself. The association has spent millions of dollars on television commercials for Mr. Trump, even as other Republican groups have kept their checkbooks closed and Mr. Trump’s campaign has not run any ads of its own.

Britain’s new quantitative-easing programme is not a failure: Already, it seems to be going badly. On August 4th the Bank of England announced that it would extend its programme of “quantitative easing” (QE), where it prints money to buy government bonds, by £60 billion. The objective is to force down government-bond yields and incentivise investors to plump for riskier assets instead, thus giving the economy a boost. On August 9th, however, investors appeared to reject the bank’s attempt to buy about £1.2 billion-worth of long-dated gilts, in spite of receiving prices well above market levels. The bank failed to buy about £50m-worth, as pension funds held back from selling.
