President-elect Donald Trump was in Cincinnati last night at the first stop of what's billed as a thank you tour.

He drew heavily from his campaign, promising to drain the swamp of influence and power in Washington, to destroy ISIS in the Middle East, and to build a wall to stop illegal immigration. But he also promised to unite the nation.

Democratic Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is calling for a number of reforms to the country's criminal justice system.  She spoke before the NAACP's national convention in Cincinnati today.

Hillary Clinton spoke a day after three police officers were killed in Baton Rouge. Investigators believe the attack and another that killed five officers in Dallas, were prompted by the deaths of two men during contacts with police in Louisiana and Minnesota. Clinton says the deaths show that things need to change.
