On the trail

Donald Trump said in TV interviews broadcast Sunday that he would like an increase in the minimum wage and that it is best that such a change happen at the state level. In the past, Trump has opposed raising the minimum wage. But in recent days, he has increasingly warmed to the idea. "I have seen what's going on, and I don't know how people make it on $7.25," Trump said on NBC's "Meet the Press," referencing the federal minimum hourly wage. "With that being said, I would like to see an increase of some magnitude, but I'd rather leave it to the states."

Hillary Clinton told CBS' "Face the Nation" that she had not been contacted by the FBI for its investigation into the security of a private e-mail server she used during her time as the nation's top diplomat. CNN reported May 5 that top Clinton aides had been interviewed in the probe. "I say what I've said now for many, many months. It's a security inquiry. I always took classified material seriously," Clinton said.

Sen. John McCain of Arizona called on Donald Trump to make amends to veterans for his belittling comments about prisoners of war and suggested he would be unlikely to appear on a stage with Trump until that happened. McCain has committed to supporting Trump as the GOP nominee. But in an interview that aired on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday, McCain expressed deep dismay at the tenor of the Republican presidential race. Trump mocked McCain last summer for having been captured and imprisoned during the Vietnam War.
