Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton said on Thursday she was confident voters would make the "right decision" despite concerns over findings by an internal government watchdog that her use of a private email server while secretary of state broke government rules. "I know people have concerns about this, I understand that," Clinton said in an interview broadcast on MSNBC, referring to the findings by the State Department inspector general in a report made public on Wednesday. The email controversy and a probe by the Federal Bureau of Investigation into whether laws were broken as a result of Clinton's use of a server kept in her New York home have overshadowed the Democratic front-runner's campaign.

Presumptive Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump speaks at news conference in Bismarck, North DakotaBy Valerie Volcovici and Emily Stephenson BISMARCK, N.D. (Reuters) - Donald Trump, the presumptive Republican presidential nominee, promised on Thursday to roll back some of America's most ambitious environmental policies, actions that he said would revive the ailing U.S. oil and coal industries and bolster national security. Among the proposals, Trump said he would pull the United States out of the U.N. global climate accord, approve the Keystone XL oil pipeline from Canada and rescind measures by President Barack Obama to cut U.S. emissions and protect waterways from industrial pollution. "Any regulation that's outdated, unnecessary, bad for workers or contrary to the national interest will be scrapped and scrapped completely," Trump told about 7,700 people at the Williston Basin Petroleum Conference in Bismarck, the capital of oil-rich North Dakota.
