A little girl asked Hillary Clinton a question that left the Democratic candidate - and a room full of adults - smiling last week.

During a town hall meeting in Las Vegas, a girl in the audience raised her hand and asked Clinton whether she thinks she'll be paid the same as a male president if she's elected.

After applause from the crowd died down, Clinton said the job of president is one of the few jobs where they "have to pay you the same".

She added: "As president I'm going to do everything I can to make sure not just the president gets paid the same, whether it's a woman or a man, but every woman in every job gets paid the same as the men who are doing that job."
