Trump attacks Clinton on trade, says he should be handed victory

The campaign is also relying heavily on the Republican National Committee for get-out-the-vote efforts.

With a lead in polling for weeks, Clinton's campaign is concerned that her advantage could prompt some of her backers to stay home on Election Day or cast protest votes for a third-party candidate.

His challenger, Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, is in a much better position, however.

Democrats have won in Pennsylvania in the past six presidential elections, The Times notes, but by often-slim margins, and the state is key for Trump while other traditionally Republican states such as Virginia and Colorado are leaning Democrat. Trump, a self-described billionaire who has recently as this week said he would give $100 million to his campaign, donated just under $31,000. "And I am prepared to go much more than that".

Independents now lean towards Trump over Clinton by a margin of 12 points, at 49 to her 37 per cent - a major swing from late last week when the Democrat had a slight edge.

Yet Trump has steadily donated $2 million a month to his campaign for virtually the entire race, smaller chunks than he gave to the campaign during the primary, when he was self-funding almost entirely.

"Quite likely we are in store for one final round of tightening", Clinton spokesman Brian Fallon tweeted Wednesday. "She's spending nothing. She ripped off the country for $250 million". "He has said publicly many times he is in for $100 million, and he is happy to invest in his campaign". Dianne Feinstein. She added, accusingly, "The FBI has a history of extreme caution near Election Day so as not to influence the results".

Clinton's continued fundraising advantage helps ensure the Democratic nominee can keep her sprawling political operation at full strength in the frantic final days of the race. It was a long shot to begin with, but a tape revealing Trump himself on a hot mic bragging about how he sexually assaults women sank a low campaign even lower - and made Trump's chance of victory even less likely. Or Trump could pay for turnout calls in every particular language - even up to on Election Day.

Speaking to supporters in Toledo, Ohio, Trump said the North American Free Trade Agreement signed by Clinton's husband, former President Bill Clinton, had led to the outsourcing of thousands of Ohio jobs to Mexico, a practice he vowed to stop if elected president on November 8. But federal disclosures show only a handful of spots in Houston and Dallas, where it would take millions of dollars to saturate airwaves.

If Trump does win North Carolina, Ohio and Florida, he can trace the narrowest of routes to 270 electoral votes by winning New Hampshire, a congressional district in Maine, Iowa and Nevada.

Appearing with Donald Trump in an interview broadcast Thursday on ABC's "Good Morning America", Mrs. Trump said there's a "need to teach" young people on how to use social media, "what is right to say, what is not right to say".
