'If I have to, I will,' President Trump told reporters before he boarded Air Force One for a trip to Florida. 'We needed to spend more money up front because of the pandemic and the statements being made by Democrats, which we are, again, disinformation.

'Whatever it takes, we have to win,' he added.

He noted he spent his own money in the 2016 Republican primary contest - a total of $66 million.

'If we need anymore, I'd put it up personally. Like I did in the primaries last time. In the 2016 primaries I put up a lot of money. If I have to, I'll do it here. But we don't have to, because we have double and maybe even triple what we had a number of years,' he said.

Joe Biden says he would take a coronavirus vaccine 'TOMORROW' even if it cost him the election as Trump accuses Dems of being anti-vaxxers. He 's said so many things that aren't true. And I'm worried that if we do have a really good vaccine people are going to be reluctant to take it ,' Biden told

Campaign manager Bill Stepien did not deny the reports of money problems.

'We are now carefully managing the budget,' he said Tuesday on a conference call with reporters. 'I consider it to be among the, if not the most important tasks for any campaign manager, creating a recreating the budget was the first thing that I did.'

He also said money is not the only factor.

'If money was the only factor determining winners and losers in politics, Jeb Bush would have been the nominee in 2016. And we'd have a second President Clinton right now in the Oval Office,' Stepien said.

'Candidate Trump was outspent $1.2 billion-$646 million in 2016. So just keep that in the back of your minds,' he added.

On the conference call, officials with the campaign outlined seven scenarios of how the electoral college could play out on November 3 - all of which have Trump winning a second term.

Biden is leading in most national polls on the race.

'This very much is a series of state based campaigns,' Stepien said of the Trump campaign tactics, comparing it to running for governor.

'We very much want to be on the local news in markets, six o'clock local news and markets, and our focus a whole lot less on the cable news with our messaging,' he added.

As COVID-19 vaccines reach final stages, who will be first in line?

  As COVID-19 vaccines reach final stages, who will be first in line? Tuesday, an advisory panel released draft guidance on how to allocate the first doses of the vaccine, prioritizing health care workers and first reponders.AstraZeneca announced Monday its vaccine candidate has entered the final testing stage in the U.S. The Cambridge, England-based company said the study will involve up to 30,000 adults from various racial, ethnic and geographic groups.

President Donald Trump made hundreds of campaign promises, many of which he said he would accomplish within his first 100 days. House Speaker Paul Ryan’s budget doesn’t include the money for it either, signaling that the president may struggle to get his own party on board.

Keep in mind he ’s willing to do whatever it takes to secure the border. Trump signed a bill Friday to reopen the government for three weeks, backing down from his demand Carmine Sabia Jr started his own professional wrestling business at age 18 and went on to become a real estate investor.

The first scenario had the president winning the same states he won in 2016 for 306 electoral votes - it takes 270 to win the presidency.

But the second scenario argued Trump could win in a landslide, picking up all the battleground states for 356 electoral votes - that would be a sweep of Arizona, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, Nevada, New Hampshire, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, and Wisconsin.

'The reality is almost every state. On this map is currently within the margin of error and outside forces can change things as we see in presidential campaigns,' said Director of Battleground Strategy Nick Trainer although he conceded the campaign is not there 'yet.'

The RealClearPolitics polling average has Biden winning the top battleground states although some of those leads are within in the margin of error.

And a new NBC News/Marist poll out on Tuesday had the two men tied in Florida. Trump and Biden both get the support of 48 percent of likely voters, with the president ahead among Latinos in the state, and Biden doing better with seniors.

'If Trump loses Florida, it's game over. If Trump wins, the story of the night will still have to be told,' Lee Miringoff, the director of the Marist College Institute for Public Opinion, told NBC News.

But other scenarios showed a closer race with Trump picking up just the 270 electoral votes needed for victory.

Trump Pledges $1 Million For Kenosha Law Enforcement to 'Do What You Have to Do'

  Trump Pledges $1 Million For Kenosha Law Enforcement to 'Do What You Have to Do' The president said an additional $42 million will be provided to assist public safety efforts statewide.Trump announced the funding boost during a community safety roundtable attended by local police, city officials and small business owners in Kenosha, Wisconsin. Also in attendance were U.S. Attorney General Bill Barr, Department of Homeland Security Acting Secretary Chad Wolf, Wisconsin Senator Ron Johnson and Wisconsin Representative Bryan Steil.

The general point being made by the campaign was that Trump could afford to lose a mix of the battleground states - including Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan and Wisconsin - yet still be elected to a second term.

Florida, Pennsylvania, Michigan, North Carolina, Wisconsin and Arizona are shaping up to be the top battlegrounds for November. Trump won all six of those states in 2016.

'We don't need every single state on this map to get there. In this scenario, of course, you've heard us say before we need either Wisconsin, Michigan, or Pennsylvania, not and Pennsylvania to still win the presidency,' Trainer said.

Trump will be in Florida and North Carolina on Monday, Michigan on Tuesday and Pennsylvania on Friday.

But campaigning takes money and Trump is facing a cash crunch after burning through $800 million in campaign funds including $11 million on Super Bowl advertisements and $156,000 on planes to pull MAGA banners.

The $1.1 billion the Republican Party had raised since 2019 through to July has 'evaporated,' according to The New York Times, and with it a $200 million advantage over Biden.

Top Republican officials briefed on the budget have been told that the president needs to reign in his spending just 56 days before Americans go to the polls.

Former campaign manager Brad Parscale, who presided over the profligacy, was replaced in July by Bill Stepien who has introduced various cost-cutting measures and scrapped planned extravagances, such as a $3 million MAGA liveried NASCAR vehicle.

'If you spend $800 million and you're 10 points behind (in the polls), I think you've got to answer the question, 'What was the game plan?' Rollins told the Times.

Parscale's tenure saw more than $350 million of the $800 million spent on fund-raising operations to find donors.

Other expenses, the Times reported, included $4 million on hosting events at Trump family businesses; his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida, donor retreats to Trump hotels and thousands spent in the steakhouse at Trump's Washington DC hotel.

There was also $110,000 paid to Yondr, a manufacturer of magnetic pouches for cellphones which were used at fundraising soirees to prevent guests from recording Trump.

The campaign had a large team of well-paid staff working at a colossal office in the Virginia suburbs and Parscale is said to have lavished himself with a chauffeur driven car, as well as $800,000 on boosting his Facebook and Instagram profiles.

Parscale was the brains behind a $100 million TV advertising splurge ahead of the convention.

Sources told the paper that some of the spending was purely to please the president rather than strategic.

This included the exorbitant $11 million for Super Bowl commercials, more than was spent on TV in some battleground states, which matched the billionaire Michael Bloomberg's spend on the game.

A further $1 million was spent on TV advertising in Washington DC, a Democrat stronghold where the president of course lives.

Many of the specifics of the campaign spending are unclear, according to the Times, which said that since 2017 the RNC has routed $227 million through a limited liability company linked to senior Trump officials.

The firm, American Made Media Consultants (AMMC), has placed television and online adverts and allegedly made payments to Lara Trump, wife of the president's son Eric, and Kimberly Guilfoyle, former Fox News host and girlfriend of Donald Trump Jr.

The Trump campaign has been contacted with regards to the allegations, which are the subject of a Federal Election Commission complaint.

Another $39 million has been paid to Parscale Strategy LLC and Giles-Parscale, run by Parscale since 2017.

Parscale told the Times that he had 'no ownership or financial interest in AMMC and that he had 'negotiated a contract with the family for 1 percent of digital ad spend and after becoming campaign manager took no percentage.'

He also said that his spending was 'under the very close eye of the family' or 'in partnership with Ronna McDaniel (the RNC chairwoman).'
