Trump gives $10 million after slowing campaign contributions

Since the Republican primaries, #Donald Trump has been putting the money where his mouth is.

Republican Donald Trump hasn't yet released his October fundraising totals, but had $75 million in his campaign and joint party fund bank accounts at the end of September. And Trump himself has contributed just over half the $100 million he pledged to help bankroll his own campaign.

The tightening of the presidential race in a handful of key states has improved Republican candidate Donald Trump's chances to victory, but only marginally, according to analyses of latest opinion polls.

But Vice Presidential candidate Mike Pence sought to downplay the disparity in campaign funding Friday morning, telling ABC's "Good Morning America" that the when it comes to the Trump campaign, message matters more than "dollars and cents".

Donald Trump, trailing his opponent in key battleground states polls less than two weeks from Election Day, said Thursday he'd like to "cancel the election" and be declared the victor. While the battleground's 18 electoral votes may very well go to Trump, according to current polls, it appears the Republican is likely to lose the presidential election with or without Ohio.

"This week, I saw all the headlines: 'The race is over".

"Of course I believe it's rigged, and of course I won't accept the results", said Mike Cannilla, 53, a Trump supporter from the NY borough of Staten Island.

In states where Trump hoped to be competitive with Clinton (Colorado, Michigan, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin), she leads him by at least five percentage points. Trump trails Clinton by 13 points in a head-to-head contest, and 14 points when third-party candidates are included. That 5-point advantage is at the edge of the error margin. The four-point gap is narrower from six points in the previous round of polling and twelve points when the tracking began.

Trump speaks at a campaign rally in Kinston, North Carolina on Monday. On Friday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation announced that it is examining newly discovered emails belonging to Clinton's close aide, Huma Abedin.

"We want someone who is a unifying force in this country, someone who sees our differences not as a threat but as a blessing", Mrs. Obama said as she addressed an enthusiastic, 11,000-person crowd in Winston-Salem, one of Clinton's biggest gatherings of her campaign. In the meantime, consider this: Election Day can fall between November 2 and November 8.
