The AP examined the social media and backgrounds of current and former campaign staffers who helped propel Trump through the primary elections. Most come across as dedicated, enthusiastic partisans, but at least seven expressed views that were overtly racially charged, supportive of violent actions or broadly hostile to Muslims.

Hillary Clinton pushed back Monday against charges that she's physically unfit for the White House in an appearance on ABC's "Jimmy Kimmel Live."
The Democratic presidential candidate said the accusations are part of a "wacky strategy" by GOP rival Donald Trump and an "alternative reality" that's not focused on the kinds of issues that are most important to voters.
"I do feel sometimes like this campaign has entered into an alternative universe," she told Kimmel. "I have to step into the alternative reality and, you know, answer questions about, am I alive, how much longer will I be alive, and the like."
The comments marked the first time Clinton has addressed debunked rumors about her health, which have been encouraged by Trump and his backers.

More than 80 percent of U.S. mothers breastfeed their newborns, but fewer than a third keep doing so for the recommended minimum of one year, a new survey finds.
Many studies support breastfeeding for as long as possible, and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies get nothing but human breast milk until the age of six months — and that they continue to breastfeed for at least a year, NBC News reported.
"Breastfeeding decreases the possibility that your baby will get a variety of infectious diseases, ear infections, diarrhea, etc.," the Academy says in its guidance.
The survey from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that 81 percent of U.S. babies born in 2013 were breastfed from birth. But then it drops off. "Less than a third (30.7 percent) of infants were breastfeeding at 12 months," the CDC said.
