Donald Trump needs comeback, campaign manager admits

Donald Trump's campaign manager has acknowledged that the Republican presidential nominee needs a "comeback" in the final weeks of the campaign.

Kellyann Conway said Mr Trump has pulled off comebacks several times before, but it was a rare acknowledgement by the billionaire's campaign that he could ultimately fall short.

She was speaking to Fox News ahead of the third and final presidential debate and as a string of battleground state polls showed Hillary Clinton ahead.

Ms Conway said she does not understand why Mrs Clinton has not been able to "put him away" given her experience and her campaign's "endless amounts of money".

She said: "What is her problem, already?"
