    Speaking before a group of employees at his golf course in Florida, Donald Trump said that the White House is underestimating the increases in health care insurance premiums under Obamacare. He said some participants will see 60 percent rate increases, as he stood outside at the Trump National Doral Miami in Doral, Florida. As he left the rally, he said his company provides health insurance plans for his employees, with only a few employees on Obamacare. (Published Tuesday, Oct. 25, 2016)

    Donald Trump's campaign is pushing back against a new report that says Trump has all but stopped raising money for the joint fundraising effort with the Republican National Committee, insisting that the campaign is continuing to support the Republican Party, NBC News reported.

    Trump finance chairman Steven Mnuchin told NBC News that the report by The Washington Post was "completely misleading" and that "we continue to do fundraising for Trump Victory."

    The Post reported Tuesday evening that the Trump campaign has "wound down" its joint fundraising effort, holding its last major fundraiser Oct. 19 in Las Vegas, and that it would still raise money online. The Post has since changed its headline but kept the contents of the story.

    The report caused a stir because most of the money raised through Trump Victory goes to help the Republican Party implement an effective ground game and a get-out-the-vote effort and to help candidates down the ballot.
