    Doubtless Trump sees it as just another useful distraction from his tax returns and his dubious business dealings, such as his Atlantic City casinos and his Trump University fraud.

    Donald Trump has been embroiled in fresh controversy after the mother of the murdered US diplomat Chris Stevens accused the Republican presidential nominee of exploiting his death

    Mary Commanday has appealed for an end to what she described as the “opportunistic and cynical use” of events in the Libyan city of Benghazi by the Trump campaign.

    Angered at the politicisation of the Benghazi attacks by the Trump campaign, Mr Stevens’ mother wrote a letter to The New York Times.

    “As Ambassador J. Christopher Stevens's mother, I am writing to object to any mention of his name and death in Benghazi, Libya, by Donald Trump's campaign and the Republican Party.

    "I know for certain that Chris would not have wanted his name or memory used in that connection. I hope that there will be an immediate and permanent stop to this opportunistic and cynical use by the campaign.”

    How sad that a mother must protect her dead son.
