After probably his worst two weeks since joining the Presidential race more than a year ago, Donald Trump’s campaign will meet with the RNC to discuss rebooting strategy for the Republican candidate as the election heads into its final months.

But the move comes after a series of setbacks – from the Khan family row to the “second amendment” furore – that have seen Trump falling in key polls and senior Republicans running for the lifeboats. Former RNC staffers and others are now calling on the party to stop funding its candidate “given the catastrophic impact that Donald Trump’s losing presidential campaign will have on down-ballot Senate and House races.”
