Donald Trump mocked Democratic rival Hillary Clinton for saying that she had "short-circuited" when discussing her email controversy.

The Republican presidential candidate told a rally in New Hampshire that Mrs Clinton's "got problems" and Americans "don't want someone who's going to short-circuit".

Mr Trump also said that Islamic State militants are "salivating" at the prospect of Mrs Clinton's election.

The billionaire businessman was speaking in a hot gymnasium in Windham, New Hampshire, the state that gave him his first primary victory.

Mrs Clinton this week suggested that she "may have short-circuited" when she incorrectly claimed that FBI director James Comey said her answers to the bureau about her use of a private email server were "truthful".

Mr Trump tweeted earlier: "Anybody whose mind 'SHORT CIRCUITS' is not fit to be our president!"
