WASHINGTON — Hillary Clinton's first speech since becoming the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee described Republican rival Donald Trump as someone who "doesn't hold women in high regard."

In a speech to Planned Parenthood, Clinton launched into an unabashedly feminist attack, arguing Trump would take the country back to "when abortion was illegal, women had far fewer options and life for too many women and girls was limited."

Trump addressed evangelicals and held a rally in Richmond, Virginia. At the rally, he ditched the teleprompter and claimed Clinton "hates" President Barack Obama. He claimed he was "the least racist person you'll see." And he repeatedly called Senator Elizabeth Warren "Pocahontas," prompting some in the crowd to break out in Indian war cries.

Police now say one of the five people detained outside the rally night was charged with disorderly conduct.

More than 100 protesters marched around the Richmond Coliseum in the minutes before Trump took the stage.
